    I took the deposition of a plaintiff who is suing a client of mine pro se a couple days ago. He noted he was a vietnam vet-Marines. I said thank you for your service. I told him the same thing as I was showing him out of my office. He said thanks for showing me some respect-that's what I was really looking for.

    Do you really have that bad of an issue with comprehension? The left is in general not supporters of the military... this is a fact... that has nothing to do with those that served.. Get a grip. But I see you repeated that other guys attempt at the left wing tactic of trying to make it personal... Thanks for proving the point on that one.

    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.
    yes i agree it was damaging since many of the 47% are republicans and his voting demographic.

    No it is not. That is your slighted perception. That which is your perception does not a fact make.

    You made it personal when you broadstroked the left mistating their positions with stereotype and/or denigrating ther service.

    Take a look at history... who has spit on our troops, who has called them baby killers, who has suggested they 'sneak in homes' in the middle of the night... that should give you a bit to do. It's called reality... That you refuse to see it because you are a leftist that was in the service, and thus a minority, does not make that fact go away.

    You made it personal when you broadstroked the left mistating their positions with stereotype and/or denigrating ther service.
    'The left/The right' is not personal. What a crazy line of logic to get to such a suggestion. Personal is when a person starts saying things like 'what have you done' as if to suggest others haven't been there and done that. Take a look at the whole of the forum, if 'left' or 'right' is personal, that most everything on here is personal... again, quite an amazing logic FAIL there..

    And you are yet again showing confusion as you continue to suggest anyone's service is denigrated by stating the fact that it is mostly the left that does not like and stands against our troops. You can't even use poor logic to come to that conclusion, you simply have to just blurt it with no connection to reality at all.

That is all he needed to say. That's all he SHOULD have said.
    This is the narrative that worries me. Mr. Romney spoke of a very specific percentage number. It's not that he believed a large number of people were committed to the President. He said, specifically, 47% of people. What make him questionable is where that number came from and what a based his choice to use that number. Did a speech writter put it in, and he didn't fact check it? Did he read a report that provided that number? Was it an estimated number based on his cumulative experience? You don't miss speak about an exact number, any logical human being knows that people don't do that. What makes it extrodinarily important, is because of the extrodinarily important office he is running for. To simply be able to blow off that statment as a trivial flub, is pretty facetious, at best.

    From what I have been able to find, the only statistics that even come close to a 47%, is to include any and all people who receive money from the government, based on a very broad definition. That really does inlcude veterans, who deserve every penny that they receive, and absolutely do not overwhelmingly support the President. So this assersion that Mr. Romey was correct in his statement, but failed with execution, seem obviously inaccurate.

    It is however a matter of perspective and perception. This is just mine.

    What you fail to do is realize you can't brush the whole military with the same brush. The military is us. The military is sampling of the whole country, all regions, all racial make ups, all socio-economic classes.
    The miliary can not all be brushed as heroes either or we wouldn't have MPs inside the base. We have alot of good guys in the military and also have bad apples.
