I have long thought somebody should go through and annotate the 2012 Mitt Romney: Full Transcript of the 47% Secret Video. So I will now do it.:
Part I: Warmup: Family Man, and America on the Wrong Track:
Romney starts with his warmup: he seeks to identify himself to this very friendly and enthusiastic audience of big donors as a trustable family fan, and then to segue from that into concern for the long-run future of America--and into concern for the track America is on, which he sees as one of decline.
He doesn't want to make any enemies here.
