Of Course Mitt Romney Got “47 Percent” Of The Popular Vote



by -

In a joint session Friday (Jan 4), Congress formally made the obvious official: President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden won last November’s election.

The Obama/Biden ticket reportedly pulled in 332 electoral votes, much more than the required 270, while Republican candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan won only 206.

According to AP, the final official vote tally from all 50 states including the District of Columbia showed that Obama won 65,899,660 votes (51%), and Romney had 60,932,152 votes, which amounts to 47.2 percent of the popular vote. Obama is the first president since Rep. Dwight Eisenhower to win back-to-back presidential elections with more than 51 percent of the popular vote, the AP reported.

But of course Mitt Romney would get “47 percent” of the popular vote!

This is the same guy that told a room full of wealthy donors at a “private” fundraising event in Florida that 47 percent of voters would vote for Obama “no matter what” because they are people “who are dependent upon government who believe that they are victims, 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. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.”

“My job is not to worry about those people,” Romney said in the infamous video footage. “I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

In later interviews, ol’ Mittens tried to clear his name, telling Fox News, “Well, clearly in a campaign, with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you’re going to say something that doesn’t come out right. In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong.”

    The number 47 never had a meaning until 2012. Thanks to Mitt Romney, the number 47 will be in the spotlight forever. I bet Mitt despises that number.
