Agree with the sentiments of this article, but he needs to be passionate and forceful with this. He can use this to propel him to the Presidency, or he can be wishy-washy and be an also-ran in the history of American politics.
We need a statesman who is not afraid to pull punches. One that will talk to the people ABOVE the media with a strong, viral message of American pride. Now is the time, Mr. Romney. Take the opening, or go away.
” - - - Mitt Romney has finally won his base by simply standing by a statement under scrutiny - - - “
“America is looking for a leader, and has been begging Mitt Romney to stand firm and lead. That is exactly what he did with this statement,”
...now. PLEASE Mitt!! Don’t screw it up by saying “I like Obama! He’s a nice guy!” or “I believe we can all work together” or “I like a lot of what’s in Obamacare”. PLEASE!
I don’t know if his “47%” was by accident or he meant to be heard but I agree with the article that it will resonate with most Americans.
To me it’s just the Obama team trying to set up an argument that Romney IS NOT FOR the old folks that are on SS. Romney needs to keep hitting hard on how Ocare steals their money from Medicare. Putting those 2 together I’ll take and bet on Mitts side with an argument that can win. There is a record. MIT just talkin he doesn’t have any power to destroy like O does and has. The seniors need to keep hearing this. They are the key to this election. MR needs to reassure these people as there are definitely OUR VOTERS TOO in that 47%
And Alec Baldwin believes that if Obama were white, he’d be up 17 points in the polls.
Obama is criticizing Romney for his statements at a fundraiser where he admitted that he probably would not get the votes of the 47% of Americans who have become a victim class, dependent on Government for free stuff (paraphrasing). Obama turned down an invitation to meet with Netanyahu this week, so that he could be on the Letterman show and use that format to whack Romney on the issue.
Obama contends that Romney alienated almost half of the voters in the US, and that it means he wont represent them if elected President.
Compare this to the recent incident where a student at a Florida University was denied entrance to a rally on Campus grounds because he was a conservative and the rally was for Michelle Obama and her supporters only.
We are living in a totally polarized nation, it’s only the fence sitters who haven’t woken up to that fact yet.
Bare knuckles; the only way to go.
Romney Locks Up 53% of the Vote (We are the 53%)

Mitt Romney recently said that 47% of the population pay no taxes while still receiving government benefits. This likely alienated the 47%, who Romney rightly noted are mostly voting for Obama. But it thrilled the 53% who do pay taxes. Because that 53% are sick and tired of moochers calling the shots.
