Mitt Romney responded tonight to the leaked fundraiser video by Mother Jones. Romney told reporters that the leaked video was from a question and answer session where he was asked about how he planned on winning the campaign this year. He admitted it wasn’t elegantly stated. Romney then went on to explain his free market vision for America versus Obama’s big government approach that has put more people on disability than in jobs. He was brilliant. He put the focus back on Barack Obama’s failed policies.

Look for the state-run media to attack him for daring to speak out in his own defense.

Here is the transcript:

Of course, there’s a very different approach of the two campaigns. As I point out that among those that pay no tax, approximately 47% of Americans, I’m not likely to be highly successful with a message of lowering taxes. That’s not as attractive to those who don’t pay income taxes as to those who do. And likewise, those who are reliant on government are not as attracted to my message of slimming down the size of government…

The president and I have two very different approaches to the future of America and what it takes to ignite our economy and put people back to work. The president believes in what I describe as a government centered society. Where government plays a larger and larger role and plays more and more of the needs of individuals. And, I happen to believe instead in a free enterprise, free individual society where people pursuing their dreams are able to employ one another, build enterprises, build the strongest economy in the world. I happen to believe that my approach is the approach that will put 23 million people back to work again.

We’ve watched the approach of the president’s approach over the last 3 1/2 or 4 years. And his government centric, larger and larger government approach has meant that we have 15 million more people on food stamps, 23 million people out of work or stopped looking for work, or underemployed. We have had 43 straight months of unemployment above 8%. And my view is the right approach for the nation is not to adopt a government centered approach but instead a free, free people, free enterprise, free market consumer driven approach and that will build the strongest economy for ourselves and for the coming generations.”

He needs this opportunity to go on the offensive against Obama’s government dependency based economy.

Still More… CC added:

Brilliant, brilliant! And he needs to tell them he wants to give them money with a job….a hand up instead of a handout. Dignity.

    The lie launderers

    [OK, so “disinformation” is what you call it when intentional
    misinformation is clandestinely conveyed to “respectable”
    sources – primarily the Western press – to “launder” the
    misinformation and make it “clean” for public consumption.

    [..]

    One can readily see how this same process applies to the
    “laundering” of “dirty” information: 1) misinformation is
    introduced to a respected journalism organization; 2) the
    media organization showcases the misinformation in a
    “news report,” camouflaging its original source; 3) the
    public receives the laundered misinformation in the form
    of apparently “clean” (credible) news, i.e., disinformation.]

    much more at link..

  3. He needs this opportunity to go on the offensive against Obama’s government dependency based economy.

  4. Stick up for our principles! Push it up… wayyyy up. Shame the donks and the 47% who are voting for more Government support. It will win! Harder, stronger, with conviction!

  5. I’m more interested in who took and released the video?

    He didn’t back down though, I liked that and he’s not a wuss like Obama and takes questions. Maybe he should call more of these it seems to be the only way he can get his message out in this Obama media.

  6. This tape was made in June. I wonder why the enemy has chosen today for its release.

    Perhaps they cannot keep up the barrage of lies about the embassy attacks.

  7. #9,

    They decided to release it today to make this a “lead story” and to get the burning down of the Middle East off the lead story.

    Obama’s Middle East policy is imploding before our very eyes, and they have to keep throwing anti Romney stories to the public to help cover for Obama.

  8. WOO HOOOOO!
    That’s the way to do it!
    Shelly #6-
    It was the liberal magazine, Mother Jones, that released the video, and (I think I read this
    at HotAir …or Breitbart) it was Jimmy Carter’s son who put them on to it…apparently he does opposition research?
    Way to go, GP!

  9. Brilliant, brilliant! And he needs to tell them he wants to give them money with a job….a hand up instead of a handout. Dignity. But support until that happens, so they won’t be afraid, as Obumma will say, that he is going to leave them destitute.

  10. As Laura Ingrham said all Romney has to do is ask back …what parts did he get wrong?

  11. Good grief. No passion whatsoever. This guy is every bit the disaster we knew he’d be going toe to toe with Barry.

    It’s over, and anyone who thinks a defeat is going to light a fire under the tea party to refocus and fight is beyond delusional. This election is going to be unbelievably dispiriting, and the tea party (uh…where the hell are they, anyway???) are going to be despondent and apathetic.

    Four more years of Barry? Four more years of him doing whatever the hell he wants with his EPA, executive orders, unelected czars and outrageous continuing resolutions to keep the the trillion+ deficits rolling for the next four years?

    Is anyone honestly going to be saying “wait till 2016!!! THAT’S when we take America back!!!” Who in their right mind will be able to keep the faith when THIS was it? The first election after the 2010 election, when America rose up and said NO WAY to this new America? We kicked ass in 2010. This was supposed to be a repeat of that, only at the Presidential election. After waiting four long years, we were going to right the wrong. It was such a sure thing!! How could we lose??? It was Jimmy Carter redux.

    There’s no way the tea party is going to be whipped up after waking up the day after the election with that hollow sinking feeling that it’s over.

    Unless an absolute MIRACLE happens, Obama is going to win HANDILLY. We’re (the Right) is delusional if we think the wind isn’t going to be sucked out of the sails after seeing THAT happen.

  12. The press has lower ratings than congress for a reason.

  13. Ask J. Christopher Stevens how safe Obama has made us today.

  14. THIS IS A BETTER ARGUMENT FOR MITT TO MAKE:
    http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2012/09/who-are-real-welfare-state-abusers.html

    WHO ARE THE REAL WELFARE STATE ABUSERS, THE RECIPIENTS? NO, THE “WELFARE PUSHERS”!
    WE CONSERVATIVES HAVE CRITICIZED OBAMA
    FOR EXPANDING THE FOOD STAMP ROLL
    AND THE NUMBER OF AMERICANS LIVING IN POVERTY
    TO THEIR HIGHEST LEVELS EVER.

    OBAMA AND THE LEFT HAVE CYNICALLY CONSTRUED THIS ATTACK
    AS AN ATTACK ON FOOD STAMP RECIPIENTS AND POOR PEOPLE.

    THEY CALL US CONSERVATIVES – AND ROMNEY AND RYAN – RACISTS
    AND ACCUSE US OF ATTACKING “THE WELFARE QUEENS” -
    AND NOT OBAMA AND HIS LEFTIST POLICIES.

    THEY ARGUE THAT ROMNEY AND RYAN ARE “OUT OF TOUCH” WITH POOR PEOPLE AND ARE RACISTS, WINK-WINK.

    THIS ATTACK IS NOTHING MORE THAN GOOD OL’ DEMOCRAT DEMAGOGUERY.

    WE CONSERVATIVES DON’T THINK THE 45 MILLION AMERICANS WHO ARE NOW LIVING IN POVERTY WANT TO BE POOR OR WANT TO BE ON FOOD STAMPS.

    AND WE DON’T THINK MOST OF THOSE 45 MILLION PEOPLE ARE BLACK, EITHER.

    (TO ASSUME THEY ARE – AS DEMOCRATS DO – IS REAL RACISM.)

    WHEN WE COMPLAIN THERE ARE MORE POOR PEOPLE THAN EVER
    AND MORE PEOPLE GETTING FOOD STAMPS THAN EVER
    WE ARE ATTACKING OBAMA’S ECONOMIC POLICIES
    FOR NOT GROWING OR CREATING A NET GAIN IN JOBS.

    OBAMANOMICS IS WHY THERE ARE SO MANY POOR PEOPLE ON FOOD STAMPS -
    MILLIONS OF PEOPLE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO SEEK GOVERNMENT SUPPORT
    BECAUSE THE OBAMA ECONOMY SUCKS.

    WE CONSERVATIVES WANT
    THE SAME THING
    THAT THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY
    OF POOR PEOPLE WANT:

    WE WANT THE ECONOMY TO GROW
    SO POOR PEOPLE CAN FIND JOBS
    AND AFFORD TO BUY THEIR OWN FOOD.

    SO, IF YOU’RE POOR AND/OR UNEMPLOYED,
    THEN YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR THE PARTY
    WHICH WANTS THE ECONOMY TO GROW,
    SO YOU CAN GET A JOB AND GET OFF GOVERNMENT SUPPORT;

    YOU SHOULDN’T VOTE FOR
    THE PARTY THAT WILL KEEP YOU POOR
    AND ON GOVERNMENT SUPPORT.

    OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS WANT YOU TO BE POOR
    AND ON GOVERNMENT SUPPORT
    BECAUSE THEY FEEL THAT IF YOUR POOR AND ON GOVERNMENT SUPPORT,
    THAT THEN YOU WILL BE A CAPTIVE OF THEIR POLICIES OF GOVERNMENT SUPPORT -
    AND YOU WILL SUPPORT THEM IN RETURN.

    THEY WANT YOU DEPENDENT ON THEM
    THE WAY A DRUG PUSHER WANTS HIS CLIENT
    TO BE ADDICTED TO THE DRUGS HE SELLS.

    DEMOCRATS ARE “WELFARE PUSHERS”.

    THE DEMOCRATS TRY TO TRANSFORM THE SOCIAL SAFETY NET INTO A PATRONAGE SYSTEM.

    IF YOU’RE POOR, THEN DON’T BE DUPED BY THE DEMAGOGUERY.

    BREAK THE HABIT OF VOTING FOR YOUR PUSHER.
