    Yeah sure. If you are grown and on your own, then there must be a different excuse for your ignorance of history, but we can't get into that as this is upstairs.

    What else should I expect from someone that has an empty chair as his avatar.
    Yeah, because football is far more important to life and society.

    It's tunnel vision and narrow minds that make up their con reality.

    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.
    That's just not true. Included in the 47% of people who don't pay income taxes, are seniors and veterans. They do not overwhelming vote democrat, and that is what his statement was about. And you did edit it, because you left out the sentace where he said that 47% of people don't pay income tax. It's not muddled rhetoric, it's what he said, lol.

    Yes, I pick apart what politians say. Not because they disagree with me and I want to deligitimize their statements, or because they are Republican. I pick it apart, because they are serving in public office, and I want to ensure I understand their values and perspectives. Mr. Romney's exact words, were that 47% of people, will vote for the President, are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, and don't pay income tax. To lump all people who collect benefits, from the government in together, large or small, long term or short term and then dismiss them as a whole, is not only inaccurate, it's a stupid way to make your case for election. Then he went and backed off of it, saying he miss spoke. In that quote alone he mentioned that 47% number three times. That's not an accident, or a mistake. If you believe something, back it up, don't just pretend you didn't mean it, say your sorry, and condem people for talking about it. It's cowardly.

If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty...." -Jefferson 1787

    Moderator's Warning:
    Worker who taped Romney's 47% comment comes forward.[W: 168]Way too many personal attacks and off topic comments going on. Stick to the topic and do not discuss others, and tone down the rhetoric. Further violations will include thread bans at the least.

    Still waiting for you to show proof to your claim instead of using the "It's history" lame debate tactic.
