    "...who believe they are entitled to health care, to housing, to food".

    I cannot imagine this is playing well with other Mormons, who whatever you may say about their religion, have a LONG history of helping the downtrodden.

    •  That's a very good point (0+ / 0-)

      IIRC Mormons are actually required to stock food for bad times. And to provide it to others in their community. Mitt was "inelegant" in his attempt to bash food stamps. Of course what Mitt's supporters don't realize is there isn't a chance in hell Mitt would end foodstamps. They're a huge benefit to mega-agribusiness companies like Cargill and Monsanto. And if there's one group Mitt thinks deserves more government help it's huge corporations people, my friend.

      If we got Mitt to be slightly less dishonest and gave him some personality he could pass as a used car salesman.

      •  "entitled" (0+ / 0-)

        That is seriously an enraging comment by Mitt. But as somegirl below points out, the idea that he thinks we should be so desperate we're willing to work in slave labor conditions is just evil.

        And this guy calls himself a spiritual man.  Say what you will about the Mormon faith -and there is a lot to be said- they don't follow Beelzebub, as Mitt obviously does.
