LIKE AN ORWELLIAN FEVER DREAM, the following song played at the end of a Mitt Romney campaign rally in Iowa last month: “I want my label to say: Made in the USA.” You can watch a clip here. The lyrics:
THE FAMILY IS POOR WHEN THEY GET BACK HOME ♪♪ WE GOT TRACTORS, WE’VE GOT PLOWS, WE’VE GOT TO KNOW HOW ♪♪ KEEP YOUR REGULATIONS UP IN D.C. ♪♪ YEAH I WANT MY HOME TO SAY BUILT IN THE U.S.A. ♪♪ SO PAY OUR MINERS TO DIG OUR COAL ♪♪ BUT THEY’LL TURN RIGHT UP THERE AND HIDE THE AIR ♪♪ SOLAR ENERGY, THEY DON’T CARE ♪♪ TODAY IN THE U.S.A. ♪♪ YEAH, IN THE U.S.A. ♪♪ YEAH I WANT MY LABEL TO SAY MADE IN THE U.S.A. ♪♪ WE’LL BUILD THE BEST DAMN CAR ♪♪ WORKING WITH YOU, YOU WORKING WITH ME ♪♪ JOBS TODAY IN OUR COUNTRY THAT’S WHAT I SAY ♪♪ I JUST WANT TO BE BETTER, THAT’S FOR SURE, IT’S STILL MADE BY THE NEIGHBOR NEXT DOOR ♪♪ HEY I WANT MY LABEL TO SAY MADE IN THE U.S.A. ♪♪ U.S.A. ♪♪ AMERICAN JOBS IN THE U.S.A. ♪♪ AMERICAN JOBS IN THE U.S.A. ♪♪ – via: CSpan
Who wrote the song, who’s singing it? I can’t find it on teh google. If anyone knows, please comment — I’m interested.
So the King of Bain — the man who, for years, leveraged and destroyed American businesses for profit, the guy who outsourced and off-shored American jobs to China and everywhere else around the globe for profit and who wanted to let Detroit go bankrupt, the multi-millionaire who says half the country is dependent on government and won’t take responsibility for their own lives while he pays a lower tax rate on his income than most working people pay on theirs and hides his wealth in secret accounts in the Caymans, Bermuda, and Switzerland to avoid taxes — has the cojones to play that song at one of his political rallies.
This proves two things: 1) Romney thinks the Republican base rubes are such complete idiots, so overcome with Obama Derangement Syndrome and lacking in basic information about him and his background (with zero desire to learn more), that they’d vote for Satan himself if, on the ballot, there was an “R” behind the name “Satan,” and 2) Mitt Romney knows his base rubes pretty well.
