Note to Readers: Follow the pronouns I've highlighted in Romney's quote . . ."they" refers to the NAACP members who booed Romney in Houston because "they" like Obamacare and Mitt doesn't. Therefore, "they" are the African Americans in the audience, the people he seems to believe want "free stuff."
Obama is referred to as "the other guy" and "someone else." :)
Quote Via Laura Clawson on Daily Kos
Speaking at a Montana fundraiser later in the day, Romney took it a step past having expected the boos, saying:
When I mentioned I am going to get rid of Obamacare, they weren't happy ... That's okay, I want people to know what I stand for, and if I don't stand for what they want, go vote for someone else, that's just fine. But I hope people understand this, your friends who like Obamacare, you remind them of this, if they want more stuff from the government, tell them to go vote for the other guy—more free stuff. But don’t forget nothing is really free.
You know what I don't want? Free stuff. You know what I do want? A functional grasp of social inequality from my presidential candidates.— Sarah J. Jackson (@sjjphd) July 12, 2012
Facts are hard for liberals: America is the Land OF the free, NOT the land of FREE STUFF.#tcot— Laura (@GOPrincess) July 10, 2012
#edshow Mitt had nothing to do with Bain between 1999-2002. He just got a lot of "free stuff" from Bain that he shipped to Switzerland.— Steve Weinstein (@steveweinstein) July 13, 2012
Dear Mitt: We want all of our "free stuff" back. You can start with the gov't backed bailouts, loans and tax credits you got.— Goldie Taylor (@goldietaylor) July 12, 2012
Romney says blacks want "Free Stuff."The only thing we want for free is the right to vote! ID'S are not free that's a poll tax.— Carol (@mccottrell) July 12, 2012

Lol, Romney was slick today. If we received him well, "See, the blacks like me!" ... Since we didn't, "See, they just want more free stuff."— Justin Heaven (@MrJHeaven) July 12, 2012
Affordable health care isn't "free stuff" or a handout, Mr. Romney. It's a human right. My new at WP: tinyurl.com/cp4gsrh— Susan Thistlethwaite (@sbthistle) July 12, 2012
