Selfies for the selfish?

NC GOP U.S. Senate nominee and state house speaker Thom Tillis, fresh from his triumphant inability to get a budget passed in a year when his party holds overwhelming majorities in both legislative houses, is now turning up in a story about  Republicans who pioneered the 47% meme before Mitt Romney made it party gospel:
The worst of the pre-Romney "47 percent" rhetoric came from North Carolina Republican Thom Tillis—now the party's nominee for Senate—who outlined a strategy to "divide and conquer the people who are on assistance," and get "folks to look down at these people who choose to get into a condition that makes them dependent on the government."
