    He insulted "low income earners". Making minimum wage doesn't mean they don't work hard enough. Stats show that most low income earners tend to be young single mothers.

    Who are Low-Wage Workers? ASPE Research Brief

    Working full time and raising a family alone has to be one of the hardest jobs on earth, imo. The last thing they need is some pompous ass in the WH making their lives harder. Besides, Romney doesn't believe single mothers should be raising kids at all and has blamed them for everything under the sun, including gun violence....

    Romney on gun control at the presidential debate: Ladies, please stop having babies out of wedlock.


    And when he was Bishop of his ward he tried to bully a young single woman into giving up her baby for adoption and threatened to excommunicate her if she didn't.....

    "...Hayes was deeply insulted. She told him she would never surrender her child. Sure, her life wasn’t exactly the picture of Rockwellian harmony, but she felt she was on a path to stability. In that moment, she also felt intimidated. Here was Romney, who held great power as her church leader and was the head of a wealthy, prominent Belmont family, sitting in her gritty apartment making grave demands. “And then he says, ‘Well, this is what the church wants you to do, and if you don’t, then you could be excommunicated for failing to follow the leadership of the church,’ ” Hayes recalled. It was a serious threat. At that point Hayes still valued her place within the Mormon Church. “This is not playing around,” she said. “This is not like ‘You don’t get to take Communion.’ This is like ‘You will not be saved. You will never see the face of God.’ ” Romney would later deny that he had threatened Hayes with excommunication, but Hayes said his message was crystal clear: “Give up your son or give up your God.” ...read..."

    That's the 47% that Romney wanted to ignore.

    So, if you're a politician who advocates higher taxes on high incomes and a stronger social safety net -- but you yourself earn enough from various sources that you will pay some of those higher taxes and are unlikely to rely on that stronger safety net. A remarkable number of people look at that combination of personal and political positions and cry "Hypocrisy!"

    No, it isn't. Supporting policies that are to your personal financial disadvantage isn't hypocrisy, it's civic virtue.
    neither Hillary or buffett pay the maximum in taxes they can. they pay the least amount of taxes they can.
    so yes it is hypocrisy.

    needless to say if they feel the government needs more of their money

    they can use this link right here needless to say I have yet to meet a liberal that will put their money where their mouth is.
    neither would Clinton or buffett.

    more so when you are part of that evil 1% of rich people that these people are constantly complaining about.
    these people must hate themselves a whole lot.

    your failure to understand the topic in question is not my issue it is yours.

    just hope America doesn't make the same mistake with Clinton as they did with Obama. after almost 8 years of stagnation we need someone else that actually knows
    how America works and doesn't want to fundamentally change it. I think people have had enough of hope and change to puke.

    also just for your information I never said anything about bb guns. I said TOY GUNS. do you see that TOY GUNS are required to have an orange tip.
    on the page before that I posted that bb guns do not have to have that orange tip this is before you even started spouting off about nothing.

    on another page I posted the article that said it wasn't a bb gun but an airsoft gun which by FEDERAL RULES has to have an orange tip.

    if you had actually read the topic you would know what you are talking about however since you failed to read what was being discussed you had no clue about
    what you were referring to. so the only person lying in that thread was YOU. the only people insulting anyone in that thread was YOU.
    now that you have fully embarrassed yourself have a nice day.

    then don't complain about taxes if you don't want to put your money where your mouth is.
    the hypocrisy is amazing that comes from the left.

    I perfectly understand it. It's your sour grapes. If you wanted Mitt Romney to win, you should have gotten more people to win. America didn't lose anything because America doesn't vote in elections. People vote in accordance to their political beliefs. The rest of your rant is just that, a rant. The same sour grapes nonsense we've all heard before. Crying because you couldn't get who you wanted elected. It's been around for 100s of years. You lost, get over it. Those who voted for Obama won.

    on another page I posted the article that said it wasn't a bb gun but an airsoft gun which by FEDERAL RULES has to have an orange tip.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_issues_in_airsoft

    Although airsoft guns in the United States are generally sold with a 6mm (0.24in.) or longer orange tip on the barrel in order to distinguish them from real firearms, this is not required by federal law.
    You still don't get it. It's sad.

    Apparently you didn't. Hillary just points, blames, and offers no solution; and why should she? It got Obama elected.

    I guess she could talk about her accomplishments as SS. Oh, wait, she can't because she doesn't have any.

    That's the 47% that Romney wanted to ignore.
    Why are you so reluctant to quote Mitt Romney directly yet swallow whatever some third party tells you?
