Why is the left feigning outrage over the “47% comment” made by Romney?
Whether he is aware of it or not, Romney just unmasked the left’s whole campaign strategy. Obama is working towards an entitlement society. Everything that is happening is not an accident. The plan is to get us past the 47%. The European Union, through the Progressive Socialist movement, has destroyed their financial institutions and polite society. The Progressive Socialist (Democrat) agenda in the United States has us on the same path. If we are unable or unwilling to move our country back toward the right, we will never be able to undo the damage. No constituent group is willing to give up their pet entitlement once they are receiving it. Social Security… Medicaid….. Medicare….none of these programs were a “right” until they were created. If we let Obama have another 4 years, we will not recognize our county at the end of his second term. These programs are moving the country closer and closer to the financial abyss, but the politicians are unwilling or unable to tell the truth about the programs for fear of being punished in the press or at the ballot box.
Obama in his own words: “What I think will re-engage people in politics is if we’re doing significant, serious policy work around what I will label the ‘working poor,’” he said, “although my definition of the working poor is not simply folks making minimum wage, but it’s also families of four who are making $30,000 a year.”
“They are struggling. And to the extent that we are doing research figuring out what kinds of government action would successfully make their lives better, we are then putting together a potential majority coalition to move those agendas forward.”

This is Obama’s campaign strategy. Romney’s secret tape reveals the left’s whole coalition building strategy. This is why the Progressive Socialist media has to stigmatize and marginalize this comment. This kind of truth-telling must be marginalized and punished to make an example of the perpetrator. The truth is “racist”; the truth is mean-spirited; the truth is just downright out of touch. Common sense and the truth must not be allowed to impact the debate. The truth is hate speech.
