Romney Doesn't Care About England or Poor People

I'll say this for Mitt Romney. He's running the kind of bold campaign where he doesn't care who he insults because he knows who his base is and that they're either too eager to protect their money or too stupid and woman-hating to care about protecting themselves that they'll vote for him no matter what. Romney went to the Olympics and managed to pull off gaffe after gaffe, where he alienated himself from his British hosts who thought he was a total ass, thus dubbing his visit "Romneyshambles." Just a couple of months later, a video was released that showed Romney at a fundraiser held in May telling his supporters that he didn't care about 47% of the electorate because they were "dependent on the government" and felt "entitled."

What do these two things have to do with each other? Well, they both demonstrate that Romney doesn't even pretend to give a shit. He knows where his money comes from. He knows who his base is. He doesn't care about alienating people who weren't going to support him anyway. So they can go fuck off and keep sucking on the government's teat. Or something like that. And that includes his horse, the lovely Rafalca Romney, who competed in the Olympics without having Mitt there to watch her. No wonder she did so badly. But Mitt doesn't like losers, Rafalca. So, I'd watch out if I were you, unless you want to ride on the top of the family car like poor Seamus Romney.
