    If you are partially correct - and you claim that in American society today there are more losers than winners - that would appear to be a scathing indictment of the American economic system. When did you convert to this understanding?

    Mitt Romney represented the losers. They're the 47% that suck off the teat of the government. They're primarily in the south and they reside largely in red states.

    Paul Ryan has no idea what it's like not to have a government job.

    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.
