    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.
    According to the objections I saw, he insulted people who didn't pay income tax...seniors and children. Children weren't voting and I believe he still won the senior vote.

    Not sure what the single mothers thing had to do with his 47% statement?

There are many people like that, and most are dependent on receiving that refund. That's not being insulting, it's true.
    With a good accountant and killer deductions, most people can do this. My husband & I both have home offices - they enable us to deduct the total percentage of their square feet against the total costs for our home. We can deduct a percentage of our home phone, mulch spreading, painting, carpeting, electricity, oil, etc. etc. Plus we have very large charitable donations (animal charities), both cash donations and other donations (mileage, material, etc.) On most years we get a good sized refund, and both us have high tax deductions from our paychecks. That means that technically he and I pay no taxes. But I didn't vote for Obama, so Romney was wrong about me. I voted for him.

    How long are liberals going to keep pretending that people in minimum wage jobs are hard workers?

    Really? Are you sure you were listening to Madame President er uh, Hillary Clinton and not some FoxNews regurgitated version? Because so far I've only heard her talk about voting rights, paid family leave", minimum wage, mandatory pre-schooling, women's healthcare, her mother and praise her husband and Obama. Oh and she said she was fighter and compared herself to FDR. lol But to my knowledge she's hardly said a word about the bevy of GOP clowns that are 50 points behind her in the polls.

    Well, I can't say that they aren't hard workers, I know that I worked my ass off when I was a dishwasher. They just aren't doing skilled work. They're doing jobs that literally anyone can do with no skill or experience. But, through working my ass off, I didn't stay at minimum wage for very long.

    Probably doesnt want to piss off whomever will go against her in the debates...and slaughter her since she cant talk without a speech written by someone else in front of her.


    Hillary is the fakest bitch in the history of the world. Pam Andersons tits are more real that Hillary Clinton.

    not only that, they don't even need to speak more than a few words of english....

    why would any American citizen handicap themselves so much that illegals, and/or non-english speaking workers can beat them in the job market. It reminds me of the young white non-spanish speaking man I met a few years back, he and his small family moved from Idaho to the Phoenix area of AZ to start up a landscaping business.....like the spanish speaking population hadn't already cornered that market. He was selling all his gear and moving back to Idaho.

    Over half the minimum wage earners are single moms living at or below the poverty level and therefore don't pay income taxes. The rest are mostly tax breaks for seniors and children.


    "..."For example, a couple with two children earning less than $26,400 will pay no federal income tax this year because their $11,600 standard deduction and four exemptions of $3,700 each reduce their taxable income to zero," Roberton Williams, a scholar with the Tax Policy Center, wrote last year. "The basic structure of the income tax simply exempts subsistence levels of income from tax."

    The remaining Americans who owe no federal income taxes are benefiting from tax breaks, the center found.....

    I would think seniors would not vote for Romney for fear of losing their SS and medicare.

    Seniors went pretty heavily for Romney, somewhere around 60%. They don't just vote on Social Security and Medicare, and most of them are probably astute enough to know that no President can take away either one of those things anyway. This isn't a dictatorship.
