    Romney definitely did that. His 47% remarks pissed off a lot of people. I have no doubt a lot of people got out and voted against him because of that who otherwise wouldn't have.

    Santa Claus and his parasites, such are the self stroking rants of the wealthy entitled class.

    It is going to be a long 4 years for some, even longer if Hillary decides to run.

    I think that cost him a great many votes, yes. Cost him the election? Maybe, maybe not. I'm not sure he would have won enough key states even without this 47% scandal.

    Thing is, though, he wasn't wholly wrong or incorrect in his comments. Some of it was/is true, and needed to be said by somebody. It just wasn't popular and wasn't what people wanted to hear.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
