    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.
    Do you struggle with the English language in general or are you just a selective retard? What part of "the fact is he was correct" did you not understand?

    Mt Romney also said those 47% will never take responsibility for their lives. He said they expect food, health care and housing. Those 47% pay for that food, health care and housing, for the most part. To insinuate that they don't necessary deserve it is appalling.

    Keep in mind that Romney is now again saying he didn'tmean what he said. Which is it. He meant it and it is true or he was taken out of context and that is not what he meant? Every day it changes.

    The guy who filmed it is an American hero.

    It was Jimmy Carter's grandson who found the video on YouTube and made MotherJones aware of it, thus making it famous. But he wasn't the one who taped it.

    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.
    Yeah, there you go, ignore reality and continue with that playbook. Maybe someone will fall for it.

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

    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.
    I think Romney would have lost even without the 47% comment. He just wasn't the right candidate to defeat a vulnerable sitting president.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
