Mitt Romney’s Ultimate Plan…

I knew it!

My fellow Americans, can I have a moment of your time?

It would appear that, following yesterday’s leaking of a video that shows me effectively writing off half the nation’s voters, we can pretty safely say my presidential campaign has come to an end. Oh, technically it may still exist, sure, but let’s be honest with each other: It’s all over. And I have fully accepted that reality.

So, with that in mind, I would like to use my few remaining weeks in the public spotlight to tell the nation all about a truly great religious organization called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    This is not real, is it? Sorry I’m from Asia

     No. The onion (the website the story is linked from) is a satire site. So, it’s only a joke. A funny one, but still just a joke.

  • MegaZeusThor

    I found this quite funny. The picture alone makes me chuckle.

  • Sardine Cannery

    Don’t be sorry you are from Asia. I admire that.

  • Neil Rickert

    We are in trouble, when the Onion has a better assessment of things than the presidential candidate.

  • Snkillerbeast

    Ah thank you!

  • Troels Jakobsen

    Yes, well done.

     Not real.  Also, don’t believe anything you see on April 1st.  Even major news outlets run fake stories then.  The Onion does it all the time.

    Democrats that sponge off the government weren’t likely to vote for him in the first place, and he never mentioned the Republicans slinging off the government, or did he?

  • John Alexander Harman

    Romney’s “47%” who have no federal income tax liability in any given year includes quite a lot of Republicans, actually; their geographic distribution suggests there may even be more Republicans than Democrats in that group (if you can call it a group — many, many people move in and out of the arbitrary set of “non-federal-income-tax-payers” as their economic circumstances change from year to year).

  • brianmacker

    Exactly, and what about those who pay some taxes but get handouts that are bigger than the taxes they paid. The problem is that the entire purpose of political parties is to sponge off the government and both parties are good at it to the tune of $16 trillion between them.
