Did Mitt Romney Really Suggest That Iran Attack Chicago? (Update) Will He Still Suggest This in 2016?

Updated on June 4, 2019

2012 Loser of the year

The Secret Videotape?

From the secret videotaped at the fifty thousand dollar a plate fundraiser dinner for Mitt Romney said:

“If I were Iran, if I were Iran—a crazed fanatic, I'd say let's get a little fissile material to Hezbollah, have them carry it to Chicago or some other place, and then if anything goes wrong, or America starts acting up, we'll just say, "Guess what? Unless you stand down, why, we're going to let off a dirty bomb." I mean this is where we have—where America could be held up and blackmailed by Iran, by the mullahs, by crazy people. So we really don't have any option but to keep Iran from having a nuclear weapon.”

These were the words of Willard 'Mitt' Romney at his fund raiser, (no poor folk allowed)

Doesn’t this really sounds like George W. Bush, who only wanted to go to war with Iraq?

Do you really think you count with Romney?

In the same video Romney alluded to the FACT that, he does not care about 47% of the American people. Is this the man who wants to be our President, at least for half of All Americans?

Is this the same man saying that, he does not care about US, The people who are not RICH enough to attend his fifty thousand dollar a plate fundraiser dinner? Does Romney think that seniors who are on MEDICARE, SOCIAL SECURITY, or MEDICAID are only Democrats?

Do you know of any senior who has turned down or refused MEDICARE, SOCIAL SECURITY, or MEDICAID if they have EARNED that service?

When (R) Ronald Regan tried to eliminate SOCIAL SECURITY and failed, he did put a tax on it!

If you are republican and think that Romney could not possible be talking about you!

  • Do you make less than two hundred and fifty thousand a year?
  • Are you out of work?
  • Are you retired and collecting social security?

THEN HE IS TALKING ABOUT YOU. You are not wealthy enough to be considered or represented by him. You are part of the 47% he can only show disdain for what he considers MOOCHERS, SLACKERS, TAX AVOIDERS.

He calls us tax avoiders, with his multi-millions in other countries to avoid paying taxes.

Does Romney know that you pay income tax on your SOCIAL SECURITY?

If you are part of the 47%, republican or democrat, do you count with Mitt Romney?

Congratulations if you helped get this person nominated! Do you deserve what he will do to you, if he buys the presidential seat? Do your friends and family deserve what he will do to them?

Mitt Romney On Obama Voters - A Mother Jones Video

Romney/ryan playing three card monte

Romney questioned on his criticizing Obama on Egypt attack

Update: Did Mr. Romney learn from his mistakes?

  • Did Mr. Romney learn from his mistakes?
  • Did he learn to keep his disdain for America's Poor and middle class, or anyone he considers less than himself, to himself?
  • Or will he at least search the wait staff for hidden video cameras?

Was it the fact that Romney placed little emphasize on foreign policy, or blaming President Obama for the bad economy. Or was it the implied notion that London was ill prepared to host the Olympic Games.

Paul Ryan did he learn from his own or Romney's mistakes?

Did Ann Romney find out that serving in the Military is not the same as going on Mormon Missions? Or does she still hold the belief they are one and the same?

What mistakes did Mr. Romney make?

From an e-book by Gabriel Schoenfeld, A Bad Day on the Romney Campaign.

Schoenfeld noted. "Later, the Romney campaign’s desire to pounce on the violence at the American facility in Benghazi, Libya — despite a self-imposed moratorium on political attacks during the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks — led to one of the campaign’s most visible political disasters. A hasty statement issued late in the night was factually incorrect, and it appeared nakedly political and opportunistic. It would provide President Obama’s campaign with cover from what otherwise might have been a severely damaging story."

How many contenders will there be?

What about Rand Paul? Do you know what this man stands for, or what he is against? Does he want to help Darrell Issa's eviscerate or privatize the United States Post Office.

What about Rubio and Cruz? They seem to be laying low with not much to say, except Cruz wants to abolish the IRS and every other government entity that would benefit the average American.

Paul Ryan Launches Campaign Theme of Lying About Everything?

From the Borowitz Report of August 30th 2012

Ryan Launches Campaign Theme of Lying About Everything, Posted by Andy Borowitz

Just remember if you don’t count with Romney and Ryan, why should either one count with you?

Will Mill Romney and Paul Ryan be Presidential Contenders in 2016? Are they, like trying to end Obama Care for the 40th time? They will just keep trying till they get it done?

Did Syria hear Romney's suggestion?

Did the Syrian dictator, who has affiliations with Iran, take Romney’s advice and attack his own people with sarin-gas, to provoke the United States President into striking them, so they can say that America started a war with Syria.

According to Face the Nation, on September 1, 2013, the United States has evidence the Assad regime’s attack on the Syria people (their own people) used chemical weapons and samples of blood and hair have tested positive for ‘sarin gas.’

John Kerry said “the credibility of the United States is on the line here and I believe that Congress will do the right thing."

President Obama needs to take the case to become involved in launching missile attacks against Syria to the Congress for approval. If the President were to launch missile attacks against Syria without their approval, would the republican Congress have grounds to impeach his for War Crimes? Is this why the President went to the Congress?

According to (CBS News) Washington, the President said: "After careful deliberation, I have decided that the United States should take military action against Syrian regime targets," Mr. Obama said. "This would not be an open-ended intervention. We would not put boots on the ground. Instead, our action would be designed to be limited in duration and scope."

When GWB wanted to attack Iraq, claiming they had WMDs, all the while knowing they had NONT. And then it was proven they had NONE. The GWB made light of the whole Iraq war. Looking behind the drapes in the White House, pretending to be looking for WMDs, and knowing they were not there.

Is that having an impact on the U.S. Congress's indecision in regards to the Syrian Assad regime's attack on its people?

I just heard Rep. Janice Hahn (D) say that there are alternatives for the President to make, but could not think of one.

      Seems like the Republicans want war with Iran. Have no idea why there are so many wars around the world at any given time. I think the Iran agreement will pass and our gas prices will get lower.

      Sharing this of course.

      Everyday is the same -- sweltering. Wore slippers this morning and was going to change into shoes this afternoon and my shoes that had been in the car all morning were too hot to touch! Had to cool them off before I could put them on.

      Hope everything is well there. Hugs and blessings . . .

      Patricia, thank you for the comments, I always appreciate you.

      As you say, it is wicked scary the indifference some of the candidates have for their constituents and also the lack of concern that some of our representatives have for the people who elected them.

      I believe there are lots of honorable people out there who would do right by all, but, they have to work harder to get elected. When the ones who are less than honorable have done something wrong, like the ones who invited Netanyahu here to instigate friction between him and our President. would blame their actions on the honorable ones.

      Thank you for the Angels and the idea you gave me.

      Au fait, thank you for the comments, up votes and for sharing. Yes they, most Republicans, at least the Tea Party faction want war as long as it does not touch them or their money. Just like GWB he had/has enough to fund the Iraq (illegitimate) war but he would rather take it out of Social Security and did.

      I hope you took something to stop the cold, it sure is hard on a person when they feel bad to do anything.

      I cut grass yesterday and loved the warm weather. I feel bad knowing how hard it is on you. I hope you are feeling better.

      Blessings and hugs.

      It is wicked scary how little choice we have when it is time to put someone in the White House. When I heard Romney's remarks about some of us not being worthy enough, I wanted to be unkind to him!!!

      Will this craziness ever end???

      Will there ever be honorable people who really have the interest of making our country a place whee each of us can live our lives in harmony and without worry for housing, clothing, food, medical care?

      I pray that the answer is 'yes.'

      thank you for sharing this Shyron

      Republicans have been wanting a war with Iran for quite a while haven't they? Now to the point of committing treason. Maybe Mitt was having a slow week and thought a little war would perk things up. People with that much money see the world differently, what can I say? We peasants are just their toys. I thought the response letter from the Iranian Foreign Minister was priceless. To think a foreigner, and not a friend exactly either, must lecture some members of our congress on our own Constitution! Voted up and shared.

      Seems like I'm finally coming down with a cold after a year and a half of not having one. Haven't been taking care as I usually do and that's likely the problem. Very warm today. Hope you've been able to enjoy it.

      oh I hope that your car is taken care of, it is an antique, but I guess insurance companies are by cars the same way that most are by people, that if they/we are old it/we should just evaporate.

      I was up till 3am and the heat was going the whole time (another big bill coming), we were reading the e-mails from our core group about the GREEDY developer who tell out town what we need. We got a letter from him and every thing was twisted, so I was writing my speech for tonight and tomorrow night and Wednesday night.

      Well, I wonder what they'll come up with for this coming campaign that will be ludicrous? I still can't believe that Mitt is backing out. Should be interesting with the bunch that's gathered so far . . .


      Hope you're in a warm place cuz it's gonna be cold tonight. Someone hit my car this morning and I thought I'd be in trouble cuz it's so old no insurance company wants to do even small repairs cuz everything costs more than the car is said to be worth on Blue Book. Seems to be no damage so far, but I'm keeping my eye on it. Not everything can be seen by the naked eye.

      Hope all's well there. A good night for snuggling . . . stay warm.

      Hello Ausseye, Thank you for your comment.

      You have me curious!

      How do you know about Shy?

      Have you and I met?

      I don't have anything against the Rich,

      Just the filthy Rich, who got that way by Hook or Crook.

      by Lying, cheating, stealing and greed.

      And the rich who would take everything from the Poor and Middle Class

      for their own greed.

      I am glad you were here.

      Hi Shy Shyron Eeee Shenko:

      I love an honest john…even if she be from the far right

      What a world of words you wield against a dark character

      47% is a small percentage of that almighty 100

      So I am absorbed by Medicare for the poor

      Mighty expensive for a corporate objective

      The DIRTY BOMB has already be set off

      Those dirty poor who need care

      It’s a Medi-American revolution

      The poor against the rich

      Those south of wealthy are against

      Those north of rich-ville


      May the south finally win

      My Aussie Dundee is with you all the way

      Like the new photo. It's funny. You really think Romney might run again? I've often thought terrorists are going about things all the wrong way, but I'm not going to say why here where they might read it and get ideas they don't already have. Mr. Romney shouldn't inspire them either. Voted up, interesting, and will share. It's already been pinned to my 'politics' board.

      Regarding your 'belongings bag.' I would suggest you always have a plastic grocery or Wal-Mart bag handy for emergencies like you suffered through on your surgery day. If necessary, to be sure they don't leak, double or triple the bags. Then nothing that matters needs to be cleaned up or thrown away. You can just tie off the triple plastic bags and throw them away.

      Have several triple bags (already put together) stored in a previously emptied out tissue box in the car, and keep other tissue boxes with triple bags in other handy places. If you often have these headaches and it sounds like you do, be prepared with these bags.

      President tried to get Romney to elaborate on what tax deductions he would take away - but all he could do was lie!!!

      Good videos!

      I read on Google News yesterday that Romney plans to take away part of the deduction for interest on mortgaged homes, and some other deductions people have been getting too, in order to lower the deficit. All of that would mainly affect the middle class, not the useless poor or the privileged wealthy. Home builders should be glad to hear it -- NOT. With little or no tax incentive to buy a home, lots of us wouldn't buy one even when we could afford it. The housing industry has been in the commode for quite a while. Romney's announcement should keep them there for a lot longer, especially if Romney wins. If you're in the housing industry as a builder you may want to get used to being one of the 47%.

      It was suggested that Romney would deliver his message to homeowners in the debates tonight if he hasn't talked about his deduction cuts yet. I can see how taking away tax deductions will get him more votes from the middle class can't you? ;) I honestly think this man is trying to lose.

      The problem with rich people isn't that most of them were born on third base, but, that they---and much of society---are under the delusion that they hit a triple. A delusion that the rich benefit from at the expense of the rest of us.

      I worry about the 47% if he does become our president. He would prefer that people who are not up to his standards (i.e. money wise) would just curl up and die and, leave everything to the greedy filthy rich.

      Hi Shyron:Fifty thou is loose change for those loose of morals and high on the unethical list, what a loss at not being able to be at that citizens dinner eating Whale and well done. Good piece you have written here and makes me proud of Americans.Yep he was talking about me, less that 250 thou a year non taxpaying junk, and I’m outraged and don’t even live in America. But hell he did let go a dirty bomb didn’t he, of the carcinogenic social type, he’ll make a hell of a president with the emphasis on hell. Damn I don’t even know what that means since I an athi-eco-enviro-activist .

      I just read from The Atlantic that 7,000 millionaires paid no taxes at all in 2011. People who can't get their lives in order and take responsibility for themselves, ya know?

      Wonder why MR is putting our military people down that way? Disabled vets and retired military service people? And people on Social Security and Medicare. He's insulting a lot of people and basically writing off their votes. Sometimes he says things that suggest he's trying to lose.

      I am one of the 47%. I do not earn enough money to count with Mr. Romney nor can I afford to pay more for a T-shirt like his wife did, than I pay in rent each month. I work for the government and receive less than $10,000 in wages.

      I wonder if Mr. Romney is also talking about the wealthy when he says "people who pay no taxes?" Many of them pay no taxes. They pay lawyers instead, to find loopholes, so they still pay, they just don't pay taxes. Those wealthy who do pay taxes are in a lower tax bracket than me.

      Both Mr. Romney and Warren Buffet (Democrat) are in the 14% or less tax bracket while I am in the 18% tax bracket. Aren't we supposed to have a progressive tax system?

      I would love to have Oprah's and Bill Gates' combined tax bill because that would mean I'm making the same amount of money they are. Do you know, schmuck that I must be, I would gladly pay double the taxes of what the 2 of them pay every year, and be forced to live on the pittance that would be left. I promise I wouldn't whine about paying double or living in their kind of poverty.

      What it boils down to is Mr. Romney believes anyone on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, or any government program is a leech, a loafer, and a moocher, not unlike the people who pay no taxes (like himself for many years). That includes all of our disabled and retired military people who get a government check monthly.

      Did anyone say Republicans don't support our military? Republicans object to giving assistance to handicapped veterans and retired military people? They too, are among the 47%. Does Mr. Romney speak for all Republicans on this issue?

      Is Mr. Romney advocating for more military veterans to be homeless? I just Googled the stats and currently the VA is reporting that homeless veterans are at an all time low right this minute! Only 60,000 of them are homeless, so that means many of them are better off than previously.

      I think even 1 homeless veteran is a shame on America!

      I think Mr. Romney is the moocher. I have heard he is now being called Mr. Robme, like he did to all the employees of Bain Capital when he took that over and stole their retirement and laid them all off, putting all that money in secret overseas accounts where it still lies today -- untaxed.

      Mr. Romney is a stain on America and as president, he would spread that stain all across this country.
