    Mitt Romney's '47%' comments: a history - video | World news | guardian.co.uk

    You know the folks who, it Mitt's words, don't take 'personal responsibility' for their actions because they're dependent on the government.
    that was the Obama faithful's SPIN on what he said. and its fairly accurate though the numbers were inflated

    yeah and that is what is disgusting.

    Odd to have such vitriol for the person who recorded it and not the one who said it. No matter what we think of him or anyone like him, if you speak and don't watch your words today, your a fool. Someone will catch it and share it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Trouble with that thinking is it allows rats to hide. But that is irrelevant, in today's world you can't do this and not be found out.

    the guy who did that broke the law. we all know that most politicians (including Obama) say stuff to supporters they don't want out in the public. same with attorneys. I often tell people I am representing what I think of the other attorney, the judge, witnesses etc. if my secretary were to convey that publicly she would be fired and would never work in that business again.

    a contract caterer's employee was way out of line doing that

    you like it because it hurt Romney. but it was dishonest and the person who did it should be taken apart for doing that

    Irrelevant to this discussion. No matter the law, no matter what you or like, anyone who says stupid **** in public is a fool.

    You can't talk about one absent the other. We live in a world where nothing is private. We don't have to worry about big brother. We have to worry about everyone. So he person, well, he's just one of us. You might do it against a democrat. Who knows. Bt some partisan would. He'll someone who h no party affiliation might. Something that stupid would get someone's interest. it's too god to pass on.
