    I picked Obama's comment because it was clearly motivated by Racism.

    Romney was right, people are EXTREMELY dependent on government. Obama was right, white people are EXTREMELY bitter. Especially when they have a black president

    I lean slightly 47%. This is probably due to my personal feelings that people who receive government help either benefit from programs they've paid into all of their lives like insurance premiums such as social security or VA benefits and therefore and only because of this don't have a problem with needing to make a claim or are ashamed of it in the vast majority of cases. They're only doing what they have to do to keep their kids from going without vital necessities but are not proud of it. The 47% comment was based on what I see as a false premise that those who get government benefits enjoy being dependent.
