|FUX News is happy to bring|
you this special commentary
from Rand Colbert as part
of our in depth analysis of
the 2012 election.
Of course, there are those who say that they have been waiting for an opportunity to discover the true Mitt; what he's like personally, what he genuinely believes, what his presidential philosophy will be. These misguided folks (and I am ashamed to say that there are some conservatives among them) say that Mitt is off script here, that he reveals sentiments that no one running for the highest office would express during a close election, sentiments that surprise them. Well grow up! If Mitt has moved beyond the culture of 'truthiness' to actual truth, so be it. He is merely expressing to a group of his peers exactly what they want to hear at $50,000 a pop. I don't know what you have been waiting for, but it should not surprise you that Mitt understands America exactly the way they do. There is no more 'there' there. This is Mitt. And for you who say this revelation came too soon, that you were expecting a little more sensitivity, that you were not ready for that quick, hard truth, that you have found this whole experience a little painful and abrupt, I say to you as Mitt does that you are responsible for coming to your own conclusion. Mitt has other important things to do now. You should move along.
|Sarah Palin agrees with me.|
She said last week, "He (Mitt)
needs to be severely agressive
in his articulation." Hell yes
Paul Ryan said that Mitt was "obviously inarticulate" in his comments last May. Damn straight. He should have gone much further. 53% of America is ready for the truth! Seniors on social security, young people, members of the active military, and the working poor make up the 47% of self-anointed victims that are not carrying their weight in this society. In my opinion Mitt should repeal every part of Obamacare except the death panels. We need to start to weed out these parasites on the government teat before they suck up all the resources meant for hard working Americans. Mitt says these people pay no income tax! Can you imagine such a thing?
|Mitt has been quoted as saying that the median|
annual income in this country is over $250K.
The average family income in America is actually
between $30K and $60K, or the cost per plate
at Mitt's Boca Raton fundraiser.
For those of you who were just coming around to thinking that Mitt was probably a good guy, that Mormonism might not be a cult like your pastor said, that maybe Christ did visit North America in the 1800s while on vacation and you can vote for Christian values by voting for Mitt, well yes, I suppose these are difficult days. Still you have to blame your own naivete. Oprah Winfrey has famously said (yes, I said Oprah) that sooner or later people will show you who they are. When they do, you should extend to them the courtesy of believing it. Mitt has shown you all along who he was. You just didn't want to believe it. You thought he would be more intelligent and insightful, perhaps a bit more generous and slow to react. Well it's not his fault that he didn't turn out to be your fantasy candidate. Now take responsibility for your participation, and don't see yourself as a victim. Mitt doesn't like that. Its time to reflect on the valuable lesson you have learned here; if somebody has difficulty expressing the values you want to hear, it just may be because they don't believe in them.
