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."

Don't want it overblown? Don't say something stupid.

I think it's pretty simple, right?
Wrong! Obama can get away with saying stupid things and the main stream media is far less likely to overblow it.

I don't think the percentage matters. At all.

No doubt--I hardly heard anything about "you didn't build that." And 60 Minutes didn't even do a story on 57statesgate.

Ok, well, it's not the truth, and secondly, he's alienating his own Republicans (so he does care about their votes). So yeah, it was a stupid thing to say.

I don't think anyone questions just how stupid it was but you are completely wrong about the mainstream media blowing things out of proportion on a partisan level. Where was the outrage over video publicized by the Drudge Report yesterday in which Obama is heard in a 1998 talk advocating government actions that facilitate ôredistribution"? What about Obama's Guns and religion comment which got nowhere near as much mainstream coverage?

The guns and religion comment got plenty of coverage, and the "outrage" over the 1998 video is probably stuck somewhere last century. All those Y2K issues probably had something to with the missing outrage.

There's a really good chance he had a bunch of losses in 2009 or so, and payed no income tax. Which of course is why he won't release his tax returns.

So again, just to clarify - you think Romney will never get the vote of any senior citizen on Social Security? If not, then what exactly do you think he meant? Do you even care that his quote makes zero sense?

In that case, no. She sounds like a sensible lady who is well informed about politics. Tell her I said hi.

People like suzzer (sorry, suzzer, you're just the most recent example) keep it going strong by refusing to understand what Romney was talking about as if to show any sign of comprehension would be to pull a Republican lever in a voting booth.

I'm simply analyzing what Romney actually said - which none of you seem to grasp or care that it makes zero sense.
