According to Mitt, virtually half the country are lazy, irresponsible welfare queens dependent on the government. And some of them even think we should give them food if they have none! The gall! Oh and, by the way, he wants your votes.

This is another part of the video sent to David Corn of Mother Jones which, given recent events, seems particularly relevant.

That shines a light on things, doesn't it?
