    The majority of that 47% are retired, military, or have a job. But people are readily able to convince themselves that Romney was talking about those other people.

    I've already answered the op's question one way, I'll try it another: no the 47% comment did not deep six Romney's chances of winning. It was the Republican base not liking Romney that deep sixed his chances of winning. What the Right likes to forget is that the GOP spent a solid year finding anybody but Romney to run against Obama, and when each of them proved themselves in turn to be too crazy they finally landed on Romney in frustrated, resigned acceptance. If you can't fire up your base for your candidate, stick a fork in him, he's done.

    Some people like to divide the government into two parts. Part One includes AFDC checks and Food stamps for black people. Part Two includes everything else.

    Part One is the government. Part Two is not the government.

    No. Romney was quite clear what he meant and the Ameircan people understood the meaning. The American people did not mis repersent his meaning...in any way, shape, or form.

    Why would Romney ever intimate that those that did not pay taxes would not vote for him anyway? For what reason did he make that claim in private...to wealthy donors?

    Kid yourself...

    It had a huge bearing on it.

    In the end, Romney lost for one main reason: enough of the American people properly perceived he was not on the side of the average American and his policies would favor the rich over them. And the amazing thing is that of all the GOP candidates who had any sort of chance at the nomination, he was indeed the most electable. Now put those two things together and it tells you in big bold capital letters why the Republicans have lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections.

    Romney was saying all those Obama voters are leeches on society and probably literally didn't realize he was saying that deployed combat troops are leeches on society. He was spitting out numbers some moron fed him.

    Obama promised the children more candy and ice cream paid for by others than Romney did

    I think all American elections are fixed, that's just my opinion.

    Jeb Bush will be the next "elected" president.
