sort by best latest
Joe Badtoe says
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.
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.

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
