Mercer also weighed in on Mitt Romney's latest gaffe about the 47 per cent of Americans who don’t pay income tax as freeloaders. "It's about as offensive as anything I have ever heard," he said. "He is talking about senior citizens, the disenfranchised, the unemployed and the underemployed, he is talking about the disabled, he is talking about veterans who have suffered catastrophic injuries fighting a very long war for the United States," he said. "I would have no interest in having a beer with that guy."
There is nothing worse than the smug Canadian. As offensive as anything he's ever heard? Get out much? This is not to defend the stupid statement - but, really, what do you expect rich donors want to hear as they write the cheques? I mean these are people who don't even need super large vanity cheques when then hand on the big money. Anyway, not that I would vote Mitt if I could... and I can't... but if he wants to have a presidential beer or even have, say, a chamomile tea as I have a beer...? Why not?
See, the smirk of the smug Canadian doesn't care anymore than they accuse the Mitt-ster of being. But catch them digging out a stump? Fat chance. So, from the land where politics are leveled by the goodness of beer, Mitt... I will have that beer with you. But, really, you're buying, right?
