    I never thought Obama would lose, to be frank.

    But, the video did hurt Romney notably.

    Absolutely. I am one of the 47% that doesn't pay taxes. Romney made a stereotype that said all 47% of those people will vote for Obama. What a retard! Lots of middle income and lower income voters vote Republican.

    Why would Romney tell lies? A president should be above sucking Rush Limbaugh's titties. Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer not a politician. The fact that Romney is so easily impressionable to believe lies makes him a weak leader.

    I voted for him but I was very offended by the way his mischaracterized me. Insulting the people who have the potential to elect you president is retarded.

    I think Romney might have secretly been working for the Obama campaign in the same way that Senator Kerry worked on the Bush Campaign in 2004.

    Republicans fail to understand/see that the majority or poor folks who pay the least or no taxes are in predominantly in Red states not Blue states....if you have nothing but contempt for the least fortunate then you will continue to lose elections.....last but not least it is not what he said but how he said it.....he closed the door in his own face when he made middle class Americans feel like we were worthless to his campaign.....the other thing that made him look bad was the silly "We are just ordinary folks" shopping at Costco type campaigning by him and his wife when the truth to it all was that neither of them had a clue to what the average American taxpayer looks like or where they shop....and lastly...he put too much faith in his faith instead of the voting public....I also think his running mate made many Americans' run scared when he started talking about cutting/changing medicare for people in the 50'ish age group who plan to rely on this medical coverage within the next 10-15 years.

    you need to take this to the CT section. the little hissy fit throwing waiter who taped Romney should have been given a serious ass kicking for his actions and the hosts should have sued the caterer for the actions of their employee

    Mittens pretty much sunk his own campaign boat, and it wasn't just his 47% remarks either.

    Well, that wasn't difficult to figure out.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=cont...rop+definition

    My definition would be, the taking of context out of the entire message or, meaning of the message, by editing out parts of the entire message.

    I suspect, the 47% remarks Mittens made were taken out of context and delivered to MSM for the purposes of smearing his campaign, which didn't help him at all. Good job Eco.
