Skip to comments.Shocking! A US Presidential candidate tells some home truths!

Mitt Romney has made some remarks at a fund-raising dinner which have apparently shocked America and the entire western world to the core. So what did he say to create this furore?
Almost half the American people receive government hand-outs and pay no income tax? *snip* [Palistinians] make it crystal clear over and over again that they want to destroy Israel as a Jewish state. Thats truly shocking. *snip* While other dirty bombs are all-too possible from chemical or biological materials, the prospect of a portable Iranian nuclear device in the hands of Hezbollah is clearly one potentially nightmarish outcome *snip* He said: The presidents foreign policy, in my opinion, is formed in part by a perception he has that his magnetism, and his charm, and his persuasiveness is so compelling that he can sit down with people like Putin and Chávez and Ahmadinejad, and that they'll find that we're such wonderful people that they'll go on with us, and they'll stop doing bad things.'
The most shocking thing of all, however, is that the mainstream US media dont think any of these things is shocking. What they think is shocking is that Romney told the truth about them.
They dont think its shocking that Obamas disastrous foreign policy has empowered the mortal enemies of the west and weakened both America and the free world. They think its a shocking gaffe that Romney has said so. How dare he!
The really shocking thing is that the laughably cartoonish spin put on these remarks by the far-left Mother Jones website is accepted as the obviously correct position by the US mainstream media.

Romney said some true things, it's good to see him staying strong here. It's also important to skewer how the media has framed this issue. This article says it all well, it's worth the time to read the whole thing, my excerpting doesn't do it justice.
Where the heck is today’s Rasmussen number??!
Don’t they know that I breathe this stuff???
Take a deep breath....
Rasmusen has Obama 2 points up on Romney today(3 point swing in one day).. Obama has hit the 50% level if leaners on put in
crap....wish I hadn’t asked.
Not a good polling day. Tomorrow is another day, though.....
It all comes down to VA, OH and FL....
Some of the hair-splitting responses to it below are hysterically weak.
Blacks turning against Obama
I agree with what he said even though I think he used too broad a brush. But I think it is sad that he only was brave enough to say these things behind closed doors, to people who wanted to hear that message. There would be no issue if he had told the TRUTH all along in public. I understand it is politics but it is still sad.
So, then it IS true that the top 2% are already PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE! I thought so. - Obama evidently thinks the “rich” have big bundles of loot stashed away that they’re “stealing” from the bottom 47% of “poor” people who already don’t pay a dime in taxes . . .
