What do conservatives really think of a lot of people

The Huffington Post and Mother Jones magazine are reporting these comments from Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. They were recorded from remarks that Romney made to 30 major contributors.

"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what, ...All right -- there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing."

So Romney thinks that 47 per cent of the electorate are a bunch of welfare queens. Why should that surprise anyone? I talk to conservatives all the time. And that's what they actually think. In fact, that should consolidate Romney's conservative credentials. Can we now way he is "severely" conservative or right-wing?

The problem is that Romney has let the cat out of the bag. Conservatives look down upon a great majority of the people, particularly the working class. This explains why they support the rich. To them, a whole bunch of us are deadbeats.

But the more shocking comments come later in the recordings. Romney shows admiration for Chinese capitalism. He seems to be enamored with a Chinese factory that pays dirt poor wages. No wonder why Republicans don't like unions.
