President Obama’s campaign has released an online video in response to Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” comment. The video features individuals reacting to the Republican’s remarks at a private fundraiser, which have seized national attention.
“We asked Americans what they thought about what he said to his donors,” reads text on screen at the top of the video.
Video of Romney saying that 47 percent of the electorate believes “that they are victims” and will vote for Obama “no matter what,” is played for several individuals. After reviewing the remarks, each offers a negative assessment.
“I actually felt sick to my stomach,” said one woman. Another said: “It shows that he is out of touch if he thinks that half of the country is feeling like victims.”
