Do you think Mitt Romney's recent comment will effect him and his campaign for president?


Here's what was said: "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. here are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. These are people who pay no income tax. My job is not to worry about those people.

    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.

    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.
