Ann Romney says Mitt was taken out of context.

That’s right.  Lovey Howell says Thurston’s remarks about the 47 percent should be put fully into context.

As good, honest liberal bloggers, it is our job to put Mitt’s remarks into context.

When he said those of us who will not vote for him consider ourselves

“victims”
he meant “victims” in the sense of “fine American voters who will one day be able to get over whatever it was that made them so damn poor in the first place.”

See?  With a little context, it all makes sense.  

Follow me below the lacy griddlecake of electrons for more examples of Puttin Stuff In Context With Ann Romney.

When Ann Romney says

“those people”
she actually means, “you know exactly which people I mean.”

When Mitt says those who support Obama need to

“take care of themselves and their lives,”
he means we should line up in orderly lines so that we can be herded aboard cattle cars toward the work camp where we will be very happy and they will give back our cell phones.

When Mitt says that we think we are

“entitled” to “food, shelter, and health care,”
what he really means is that on the Planet Moroni, all those things come in a tube from a vending machine.

Please help Ann and I put Mitt’s comments in context below.  Thank you.  And shame on you all, Moocher Victim Whiner Panty-Ass Forty Seven Percent Deadenders!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
