bworthington - that's a fine explanation of Romney's stupidity, which he has in abundance. How poor must the GOP be to consider Romney as their best shot.
My personal situation: I am in the 53% that pays net taxes, but I am a single male entrepreneur with no children.
IF, however, I got married and had two children, I would fall into the 47%. Ironically, due to GOP supported tax code provisions.
Romney's comment was wrong in so many ways, not least of which, as you mention, is that the nonpayers are, in many cases, a result of GOP supported policies. Guy doesn't even know his own party's history.

It appears he believes that the thousands whose jobs he destroyed will now vote for Obama - he may be right there. He shows no respect for them. Maybe if he wants votes, he should let go of his own "entitlement" not to show his tax returns.

The idea that people only vote for Obama out of self-interest and wanting to sponge off the taxpayer is offensive to the many Americans forced into the welfare safety-net because their jobs were destroyed. Most would rather pay their way.
I fall into the 53%, BUT not in the 1%. A President Romney will never look out for my best interests.
That said, this latest issue simply plays into the narrative of Romney as rich and out of touch. A definition that doesn't help in swing states
