I'll let him speak for himself.
From June 13, 2011
John King: Governor Romney, you've been a Chief Executive. I was just in Joplin Missouri. I've been in Mississippi and Louisiana and Tennessee and other communities dealing with storms dealing with tornadoes, the flooding and worse. FEMA's about to run out of money and there's some people who say do it on a case-by-case basis, and some people who say, you know, maybe we're learning a lesson here that the States should take on more of this role. How do you deal with something like that?Thank you for that, Mitt.
That asshole Romney: Absolutely. Every time you have an occasion that takes something from the Federal government and sends it back to the States, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. Instead of thinking in the Federal budget what we should cut, we should ask ourselves the opposite question. What should we keep? We should take all of what we're doing at the Federal level and say what are the things we're doing that we don't have to do? And those things we've got to stop doing, because we're borrowing $1.6 trillion dollars this year than we're taking in. We can not afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. It is simply immoral, in my view. For us to continue to wrack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we'll all be dead and gone before it's paid off. It makes no sense at all.
Meanwhile, our adult President is engaged and busy making plans for our useless Federal government to step in as soon as humanly possible to provide aid to the people sitting in harms' way. That includes those kids you were talking about. I don't think they'll be too preoccupied over the course of the next several days, worrying themselves sleepless over our debt and the opportunities this storm would present for the private sector in the government of your dreams.
Has there ever been a more disgusting American philosophy than this?
