    Romney on the 47% (his 3 interpretations)

    In private Romney attacked half of our citizens (the lower 47%) ... those include veterans, teachers, seniors ...just about anyone earning less than 64,000 are in that 47%.

    His private comments were heard by all as he enjoyed fine dining with people in the upper .5 % and discussed his hundreds of millions tucked away tax free and how he would pass it to children or grandchildren. He sneered about the 47% Was this the real Romney?

    Next when the video was revealed he said that he was inelegant in his assessment of the the 47% and yet made no address or discussion. Was this the real Romney?

    Five months post the private scorn of the 47% and less than a month before election day he now says he was wrong to say that. Was this the real Romney?

    The concerning aspect is his policies reflect that approach and that disdain because his entire economic philosophy is geared toward the very wealthy and negatively impact the middle class.

    1) how many threads do we need on this

    2) there appears to be much envy behind this thread

    Romney keeps changing his stance and so as he flip flops I thought it would be an interesting poll with his latest take on it.

    Envy? Sorry ... That was weak Turtledude.

    I love my work and my life and while not wealthy I do quite well supporting myself and my family. I am not part of the 47% he sneered at privately yet those are the electricians, the cooks, the service industry, the blue collar worker, the teacher, the senior citizen, the daycare worker, the small business owner ...

    None of the above.

    I, like everyone else not named Willard Romney have no idea what Romney actually believes.

    I don't see why we need any threads on this. It is perfectly clear that Romney will say and do anything to get a few votes. No one except Romney knows what he believes. Therefore this question is moot.

    He was wrong on the numbers-he was right that about half the country won't vote for him no matter what and its a waste of time trying to convince them other wise. Your claim that he sneered at them is partisan hackery. are you saying teachers aren't paying FIT, Small business owners etc?

    we do know that Romney is not hostile towards those who are successful despite government. that's Obunny's province.

    Which is amusing considering the bailouts that Romney needed. How he used the bailout money on Bain is hysterical. I don't agree with how he did it, but from a finance position, it's hilarious what he did to both the banks and government who bailed out Bain. Masterful and Epic trolling there.

    so are your trying to refute my point that Romney is not hostile towards success

    he also has proven competent in several areas.

    He's not hostile to success. But he has had his own share of government assistance.

    he also has proven competent in several areas.
    I guess so but a CEO is not necessarily the best President. Hoover, Carter and Bush Jr ran firms. We got debacles with all three.

    My reasons against Romney are this:
    1) Ryan
    2) No idea what Romney actually believes politically or economically
    3) Potential all GOP government.
