Earlier today I posted a compilation of the responses of 47-Percenters to the now infamous Romney fundraiser video, in which Mitt Romney basically writes off as lazy moochers the 47 percent of Ameiricans who don't earn enough to owe federal income taxes. Both the Romney video and the responses from ordinary Americans show how much has changed.
Not long ago, Americans who couldn't afford the $50,000 ticket price would never have heard Romney's remarks to Florida donors. (Nor would "the help" — the invisible ordinary Americans in the room — have been able to bring those words to wider notice. We would have heard from Mitt Romney only what his campaign wanted us to hear. Nor would those Americans have had a chance to "speak truth to power," in the growing number of responses to Romney's rhetoric.
To quote Moms Mabley: things sure ain't what they use to be, and I'm damn glad; because now we can hear Sara Zacharias. Today, nobody is "speaking truth to power" (in the person of one Willard Mitt Romney) than her.
