He has done nothing but decrease their chances of succeeding. The cold hard fact is everyone is going to have to pay more taxes rich included. The problem is how do you go about generating growth? Taxes will not pay the tab.
Both sides claim they want to cut costs as long as it is not any of their stuff that gets cut. There are several here who are much more educated than me on how the economy and government works. I do know this much Obama has showed he is ill prepared to run our country. I am so disappointed in the entire government I have become disillusioned. The cancer in our government runs much deeper than the president, and both parties are malignant~
My main issue with Romney's statement was that the "47%" cannot be made to be responsible over their own lives. That was a nasty, uncalled for statement given only a small portion of that figure (after excluding senior citizens, active duty military, working poor, etc) are actually true moochers that are lazy and taking advantage of the system. I know he was trying to pander to his audience, which was made up of rich douchebags, but he still went too far even given that.
I tend to think a man is being more truthful when he doesn't realize he is being recorded. It was a wise move to do a 180 on those comments, but I don't know how many people will buy it.
