Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

    Seeking to shift the attention away from a leaked video from a private fundraiser in which he said he doesn’t have to worry about 47 percent of non-income tax paying Americans, Mitt Romney today sought to draw attention to a 1998 audio clip in which President Obama said he supports redistribution of wealth from “some” to “the others.”

    “The president’s view is one of larger government, there’s a tape that came out today where the president’s saying he likes redistribution,” said Romney during an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, the candidate’s first interview since the leaked videos showed Romney referring to 47 percent of the American people who feel “entitled” and who are “dependent” on government.

    “I disagree,” said Romney on the issue of redistribution. “I think a society based upon a government centered nation where government plays a larger and larger role, redistributes money, that’s the wrong course for America.”

    Romney was referring to an audio clip of then-Sen. Barack Obama’s speech at a conference at Loyola University in 1998. Obama said at the time that he thinks he does “believe in redistribution.”

    “I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution, because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level, to make sure everybody’s got a shot,” Obama said at the time.

    Forty Percent Blues

    (pronounced PURRcent)

    de-de-de dee-dee

    dee doo doo

    I hear the votes a comin’

    It’s comin’ ’round the bend,

    And I ain’t seen a poll lead,

    Since, I don’t know when,

    I’m stuck at Forty Percent,

    And time keeps draggin’ on,

    But that trend keeps a-fallin’,

    Down until I’m gone.

    When I was just a baby,

    My Papa told me, “Son,

    Always be a good boy,

    Don’t ever play with Funds,”

    But I BK’ed a Corp in Reno,

    Just to watch it die,[cheers]

    When I see the new polls a-comin’,

    I hang my head and cry.

    I bet Barack Obama’s flyin’,

    In that fancy Air Force One,

    He’s probably savin’ GeeEmm,

    And killin Bin Ladunnn,

    But I know I had it comin’,

    I know I can’t be me,

    But those polls keep a-fallin’,

    And that’s what tortures me.

    Well, if my name was Rasmussen,

    If that Pollin’ firm was mine,

    I bet I’d move my LV’s,

    Farther up the line,

    Far above Forty Percent,

    That’s where I want to stay,

    And I’d let that ‘Lectoral College,

    Blow my Blues away.
