    Today, Mitt Romney Lost the Election



    You can mark my prediction now: A secret recording from a closed-door Mitt Romney fundraiser, released today by David Corn at Mother Jones, has killed Mitt Romney's campaign for president.


    On the tape, Romney explains that his electoral strategy involves writing off nearly half the country as unmoveable Obama voters. As Romney explains, 47 percent of Americans "believe that they are victims." He laments: "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."


    So what's the upshot? "My job is not to worry about those people," he says. He also notes, describing President Obama's base, "These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax."


    This is an utter disaster for Romney.


    Romney already has trouble relating to the public and convincing people he cares about them. Now, he's been caught on video saying that nearly half the country consists of hopeless losers.


    Romney has been vigorously denying President Obama's claims that his tax plan would raise taxes on the middle class. Now, he's been caught on video suggesting that low- and middle-income Americans are undertaxed.


    (That one is especially problematic given the speculation about what's on Mitt's unreleased pre-2010 tax returns.)

    telling it like it is takes balls... something obama will never have.

    You lefties kill me.

    You hang on every syllable and wait for something 'offensive' and then you ejaculate all over each other when you think you got what you were waiting for.

    Go ahead... get back to your circle-jerk.

    The rest of us will worry about 16 trillion in debt, and china using our interest payments to fund their military capabilities.

    Have a nut, girls.
