Mitt Makes It Very Clear....

he thinks the middle class is not capable of voting for themselves!  

H/T Think Progress for this one:

 Newly-discovered audio from a conference call in June captures Mitt Romney asking business owners to urge their employees to vote for him.

 Romney, speaking on a call to the very conservative National Federation of Independent Business, tells a group of business owners that they should “make it very clear” how they feel about the candidates.

I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections. And whether you agree with me or you agree with President Obama, or whatever your political view, I hope — I hope you pass those along to your employees. Nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business, because I think that will figure into their election decision, their voting decision and of course doing that with your family and your kids as well.

Audio here, this comes in around 26:40!

So we know now what Mitt means when he says:

 Especially when they do not vote the way he tells them to in our "Constitutionally limited democratic republic"!   Although I am not sure that is how our Founder's set it up.  

Unfortunately for our country, there are some CEO's who have taken Mitt's orders to heart! 

There have already been some reports of employers suggesting how their employees should cast their ballots. A CEO of a Florida resort company threatened to fire his employees if Obama won. The CEO of a timeshare company did the same. And the famous right-wing Koch brothers warned of “consequences” of not voting for Romney.

Maybe someone should be looking into this!  

Is there anything that Mitt will not say when he thinks he is in private? 


  1. Mitt is used to bossing people around, being a demagogue, and a dictator. Expect nothing different from him if we are unfortunate enough to have him as president.

  2. Yes, Mitt, we DO live in a democratic republic, but where in the Constitution do you get the idea that employers can coerce their workers to vote in a certain way?
    Aren't you the one all about rugged individualism and personal freedom? Mitt caters his message to whichever group he's talking to; who cares if said message conflicts with things he's said before, or conflicts with the supreme law of the land.
    NFIB is pretty much the group that conservatively represents small business--the backbone of America's economy--whose constituants are largely called the middle class (the U.S. Chamber of Commerce supposedly does the same for all business interests, but really speaks for the big business owners).
    This statement by Mitt just shows how desperate the Republicans are getting, that they know their message to the voters is not resonating with the public. So, they turn to fascist measures to try to sway the vote.
