I cry foul on Poulos's statement of imprecise language. Romney's language is extremely clear, achingly precise. He even uses the rhetorical repetition of "who believe ..." He's trying to convince others, who most likely already think as he does, of something that is very real in his mind; but that's beside the real point.
The more important issue is that this is Romney's attitude being revealed in a situation in which he thinks he is safe to say what he really feels, believes. In this meeting, Romney speaks, as Poulos says, "almost stream-of-consciousness." That makes my point all the more relevant. Stream of consciousness means that you are not taking time to filter what is coming out of your mouth. He is, in other words, speaking from the heart. And his heart is hardened toward a very large number of United States citizens, including his own voters....
You can read Romney's statements and watch the videos at here at Mother Jones.
Think About It!
UPDATE: I wanted to share this quote from Upworthy.com, "When These 6 People Think You Blew It, You Know Your Campaign Is In Trouble":
“I disagree with Gov. Romney’s insinuation that 47 percent of Americans believe they are victims who must depend on the government for their care. ... I know that the vast majority of those who rely on government are not in that situation because they want to be.”
