Quote of the Day: Obama Voters Are All a Bunch of Moochers

| Mon Sep. 17, 2012 5:54 PM EDT

Here is Mitt Romney speaking at a private fundraiser recently. At least, it was a fundraiser he thought was private. Turned out somebody had a camera rolling and caught him explaining what really animates Obama supporters:

There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what....who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it....These are people who pay no income tax.

....And so my job is is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.

The video is below. David Corn has more clips from Romney's pitch here.
