    Sorry you can peddle your false hyperbole elsewhere. The fact remains that part of that 47% are service members.

    I retired from the army, what have you done?

    What's more interesting is why the taper didn't use his recording to extort $100,000,000 from Romney.

    Do you deny that the majority of those on the left merely give lip service to the military? That when the do 'support' them it is most often faux support?

    Ah, the swing to try and make it all personal. You follow the guides well.

    Yes, I do deny that.

    Ah in other words you've done nothing. Talk about lip service.

    Hmm.. you edited.. interesting.

    Again, you are following the leftist playbook line by line. Good job. What I 'have done' is of no concern to you, nor does it matter in terms of this discussion, no matter how hard that lefty playbook tells you it will lead you to victory. But FWIW, put your cursor above the little star under my name... since you couldn't figure out to do it without being told.

That is all he needed to say. That's all he SHOULD have said.

    This also wasn't the only thing he said that was foolish but it certainly ranks right up at the top.

    As for going after the guy that filmed it...that would be another foolish maneuver. Time to just let it go. Two shots at the brass ring...theres a message there for you.
    You obviously haven't heard the actual tape. You obviously don't have an idea of the perspective or what he was speaking about in this tape. You obviously have fallen for the propaganda of the lamestream media on this subject.

    Mitt Romney was SPOT ON correct when he said this. The ONLY thing he was incorrect about was he didn't realize the 47% had become the 50% + 1. The TRUE mistake Mitt Romney made was attempting to backtrack in order to appease the lame stream media and low information voters. He should have proudly proclaimed his true intent in saying this. He probably lost the election because he wimped out.

    Your hyperbole comments are still hyperbole.

    Oh now you change and say this isn't about you yet you have no problem trying to make this about the left. Don't like it don't make idiotic comments

    I noticed you still cannot address the FACT that part of that 47% that you seem to hate so much are service members.

    But please act like you do something.

    I think this comment did a lot of damage for Romney and it's interesting that the guy who taped him was part of that 47%. I would guess also guess that the reason this comment did so much damage was not because Romney is a rich guy but because of the unitarian message Romney was trying to push while also trying to paint himself as an American who was caring about the struggles of that 47% and the struggles it has. Furthermore, I would even argue that the real reason this did damage was because well, Romney with his other comments about "waging $10K" and having friends who own NASCAR teams made him sound far more elitist than he probably is in real life.

    In short, this wasn't a good move on Romney's behalf. Even if he did think it would never get out.
    Mr. Hat, this is one of your fairer posts. What I found most interesting is that, with all of the hullabaloo around his comment, all I remember about it is him saying 47% wouldn't vote for him. I'm wondering just how public the rest of his remarks surrounding this 47% comment were at the time. I sure don't remember them.

    At the time, I thought, "Well, I guess I might agree with that -- that 47% wouldn't vote for him under any circumstances -- but I hadn't heard the surrounding commentary. Makes better sense on why he said it now.

    Thank you.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
