    It seems the cons are most concerned about romney exposing his true feeling instead of being stealthy.

    Full Transcript of the Mitt Romney Secret Video | Mother Jones

    Its clear that hes talking about both concepts, the number of people who dont pay income taxes, which is 47%, true, and the number of people who will vote democrat no matter what, "48, 49, 48—he starts off with a huge number", also true. He even referes to the 5-10 percent in the middle who are not ideologically set.

    Like I said, muddled rhetoric. Nothing new, but here we sit analyzing every word because hes a republican, and he said something youre not supposed to point out. HIs point is correct. People who are dependent on govt are going to vote for the guy who will keep giving them their fix, and thats easily near half of the country, and mostly liberals.
    The damaging part of what Romney said was when he said his "job was not to worry about those people".
    His point about Obama cultivating a segment of the population dependent on Government and that he, Romney, wouldn't likely be able to reach them, was correct.

    Those people don't worry about Romney anymore.

    It's called democracy, fyi.

    It illustrates how out of touch Romney is with the American workers who sweat and toil in America each day, while paying taxes. The 47%.
    There is no such speech in that video. Just the opposite, the story about the chinese factory was about how much better the US is because things are easier.

    ONly damaging because he said something true. A candidate for President doesnt worry about getting oppsing parties votes, just a few percent of the middle plus their own base.

    And you agree with this thinking that it is okay to teach people to be dependent upon government for everything? That might have worked back when we weren't facing a fiscal cliff, but this is now. What happens when there is not enough money to continue fostering dependence? You can't just tell them they're on their own now, and good luck. Not only is that unfair, but it is cruel. We abolished slavery once...do you expect to go back to that?

    He could have made the same point work for him by explaining how Obama's (the Democrat) strategy of creating and maintaining dependency among the citizenry was cruel and cynical and he would work to break that cycle of dependency.
