"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what," Romney said.
It is sickening to hear Mitt Romney speak like this. He should step down as the Republican Party Presidential Nominee. He can not put his hand on a Book of Mormon and take the oath of office at this point.
I don't know what the procedure would be... Would Paul Ryan be elevated to Presidential Nominee and then appoint another Vice-Presidential nominee?
In 1972 George McGovern replaced his Vice-Presidential running mate, Senator Eagleton with Sargent Shriver, so there is some precedent for such a high-level maneuver.
