Romney: 47% of Americans are victims
 
I guess this maybe the kill shot for his campaign. I know some of you believe you this and won't find a problem with what he said but as a person running for POTUS you probably shouldn't write off 1/2 the country especially in a disparaging way.

Quote:

A hidden camera video of Mitt Romney at a fundraiser shows him talking disparagingly of people who will vote for President Obama.

Said Romney: "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what...These are people who pay no income tax."

He adds: "My job is is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

What Romney really said was winner winner free chicken dinner?

Regardless of what it does to his campaign, I don't have a problem with what he said. Truth hurts.

Yes: Anyone who votes Dem pays no taxes. 30 Helens agree. I was going to vote PUB, but I'm joining the new "no tax" party. Sorry Mit, can't vote against zero taxes. Barry, what up?

I know it isn't. You have a problem with the truth? Wait... yeah. You are part of that 47% that he wasn't going to get anyway so what the hell does it matter to you. Nothing he could say or do would sway you anyway so why even bother. The only way you vote for him is if Obama turned up on To Catch a Predator, and still maybe not even then.

What he said if he said it is true, unpopular but true~

FD 09-17-2012 04:25 PM

What he says is true, of course. The political problem with it is that a huge proportion of the people he is talking about are the elderly, whose votes he is counting on.

You think all Obama supporters are victims?

Vote Romney, or else you're a freeloading bum.

Yeah, that's a great outlook.

Nope not at all. Do I think some people that want others to carry the load for them are? Yes. Do I think you are? I don't know, but probably. Should we care for others that can't care for themselves? Yes. Should we care for other's that WON'T care for themselves. Hell no. Anymore questions, Sherlock?

Yeah, I don't get what the issue is here?

I'd say he's probably right that around 47% don't pay income tax is close to being correct? I'd say the vast vast majority of those people will vote for Obama. I'd say the vast vast majority of those people feel like they deserve to be fed and taken care of by the government.

I'm sure Obama knows that there's 47% of the people who don't believe in high deficits, favor lower taxes for business and feel like they can spend their money better than the government.

That would leave about 6%, like he said.

:shrug:

Vote Obama, or you are only looking to make the rich richer.

Yeah, that's a great outlook.
