November 24, 2012 Urban Word of the Day
A blurted deeply held politically-incorrect belief that one thinks will rally people to one's cause, or make people more sympathetic to you, that winds up having the directly opposite effect.
That "gifts" remark along with the "47%" remark must be tied in first place for the all-time greatest Romneyism ever uttered.
Romneyisms are the Democrats' secret weapon against Republican convert seekers.
A turn of phrase used by a 2012 Presidential Candidate that, despite being totally factual, offends the delicate sensibilities of left wingers who would rather shut their ears to the facts.
Mitt Romney said 47% of the country is on some kind of government assistance or entitlement. Can you believe the nerve of that guy?
Yeah, that's a Romneyism that will live on forever. The truth hurts.
