Jesus Jumping Christ on a Pogo Stick, you win the "Completely Missing the Point" award. Soldiers in combat zones do not have to pay federal income tax (which is a great policy), thus is included in the 47% of Americans that don't pay federal income tax. According to Romney's statement, they are in the group that can't be made to be responsible to care for their own lives.
I don't give a shit what Romney meant when he was talking. Execution supersedes intention. Fair or unfair, the person running for POTUS needs to always be mindful of his phrasing and choice of words. As he found out, someone is always listening/watching.
