    I believe he was right in saying he wasn't worried about that 47% because he wasn't going to get those votes anyway. But people want to make more of it than there is. Or did, we are talking 6 years ago.

    You're making a mountain of a molehill, as a result of and to serve political bias.
    I never said he hated anyone.

    I don't see that he was painting his political enemies in a bad light he was painting the people who might vote for him in a bad light

    Romney never said that 47% of Americans don't work.

    I don't matter what you say, it only matters how others on here wish to frame it.

All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who 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 that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what...


    Not so much
    Good afternoon OD

    I'm curious - do you quibble with the 47% as it relates to his description or do you believe his description is completely invalid?

    Hey CJ

    I can actually understand the point he may have "intended" to make; that those voters are out of reach to him. IMO his embellishments state clearly what he thinks of those individuals and that's the part I have a problem with. I would be just as condemning of any politician regardless of party if I thought something they said like this was more than just a clumsy way of stating an opinion but an accurate reflection of how they feel about a group of people.
