    I'm not demonizing anyone. I think he said exactly what he thought would appeal to his audience. What he thought would show them that he "identified" wink wink with them.

    What does the fact that he was campaigning have to do with anything. He said

    are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.

    that has NOTHING to do with campaigning. If his point was to communicate that there are a group of voters dedicated to Obama and they are lost to him he did not have to use this language which was judgmental and condemning of them. Not to mention, inaccurate. His statements are about the character and values of this group of voters and it fit right in with snobby out of touch rich dude image.

    Mr. Etch-A-Sketch was doomed to lose the second he ran.Running a RINO did not work in 2008,Running a even bigger RINO 2012 definitely did not work. Why bother voting for Obama-lite when you can vote for a real Obama? Most of the people who voted for Romney are die hard party-tards(these are people who support their party no matter what and regardless of the politics of the candidate running just as long as that candidate is a member of their party).
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    220 million, give or take.

    But Romney never said that 47% don't work anyway. He said that 47% don't pay federal taxes, which is a somewhat true statement.

    No, but it did not hurt the chances of Obama in winning the presidential elections.

    Well when you get 99 weeks to sit around and "look" for a job, whats the hurry? Used to be about 6 weeks of unemployment and then you are on your own.

    You are. You're turning a brief rant regarding the campaign into a hatred of poor people by a mean old cold hearted businessman. You're turning him into the Scrooge just because he painted his political enemies in a bad light. If we did that every time a politician complained about the votes they cannot get, every politician ever would be the Scrooge.

    You're making a mountain of a molehill, as a result of and to serve political bias.
