    Romney Video

    I can't say that what he says is a surprise (or imho, a big deal). People are more candid when it comes to fund raisers that aren't knowingly recorded.

    But wow...if he thought he had a hard time convincing independents and people who aren't sure before, go ahead and tell them you think this kind of shit and see what happens.

    I wonder if this will get as much play in the lamestream media as Obama's 'guns and bitterness' fundraiser quote in 2008.

    He's much more generous to those people than am I. I'm happy to help the helpless; I'm not too thrilled to help those who can, but refuse to help themselves.

    And all he said was that they were going to support Obama. It wasn't close to calling them people who cling bitterly to their guns, their religion and people who aren't like them as a way to explain their frustrations.

    Yeah, it just said that they don't work, are lazy and beneath him.

    that is NOT what the person in the video said.

    He said they think they are "victims".

    Which, by golly is true for some Americans.

    None of the quotes are problematic.

    Sure, Leftists disagree with the sentiment, but there is nothing factually incorrect, except maybe debating the "47%".

    Yeah, because saying they call themselves victims isn't the same as saying they're beneath him.

    It's called dismissing them as not counting. Again, beneath him.

    That's your impression and not what he said.

    Why should it?

    That Obama narrative was disgusting and, we now know, VERY VERY telling about the man who would become our leader:

    Hint, very biased, opinionated, filled with a superiority complex, combatitive, judgemental, and not moderate, but very left of center.

    That's amusing.

    47% of Americans are serial killers, and Romney voters.

    And Romney's quote was different from that how?
    Very biased? Check
    Opinionated? Check
    Filled with a superiority complex? Check
    combatitive, judgemental, and not moderate? Check check check
    very left of center? nope, very right of center.

    Why are you upset at Romney for telling the truth? The tipping point is close in terms of those paying federal taxes versus those who receive benefits. Actually, looking at annual deficits, the tipping point is long past in terms of actually running a responsible budget, and it's now a race to see how many citizens can get to be dependent on government in order to lock up majorities.

    I have to say, I can't find a single unfactual, misleading, judgmental or combative phrase in there. And he seems especially correct in the bolded parts.

    Edit: Rereading, I think the AP survey that those numbers came from meant college grads who were unemployed or "underemployed", so you could make the case that unless less than 3.7% of those responding about being un-/under-employed were the "under", then he's wrong.

    how is saying that the majority of the voting left are people who don't pay income taxes telling the truth, or at all factually correct?

    because if you repeat it enough times, it becomes true.

    For starters, because that is not what was said. Try again.

    Don't even bother.

    The Middle East is in a meltdown, the economy is shambles, Obama's policies are proven failures, and the only way to win the election is to go after Romney.

    I'm waiting for the hidden camera footage of what many Republicans want to call him.

    ok, I'm going off of this quote,

    47% will vote no matter what for him. They pay no income tax. What did he say then?
