Romney Throwing Away The Election...

    So, apparently 47 percent of Americans don't pay taxes? Turns out they are all lazy and depend on government for everything that they have.

    Hopefully the other 53 percent are enthusiastic about Mitt. Anyone still think Romney will win?

      I've never thought he would win. I still think he'd better for the economy, though.

        I understand that a lot of people vote based on their economic situation at the time of the election.

        However, I seriously doubt he has what it takes to be a President. He doesn't seem like he could even fake being interested in the entire nation.

    Yep, all those good for nothing people on Social Security, Disability, Food Stamps. They still pay gas taxes, sales taxes, and lots of other regressive taxes. And I do consider health care a right. Most other civilized countries do.

    The only reason Romney's there in the first place is to make us think we have a choice.The election's already been decided.It's like fixing a horse race,you don't want the winner to win by to much or people will get suspicious...unless they're already awake.

    To cheaptrick,
    You're right. The fix is in for Obama to win. Just look at the mainstream mediabots. They don't even pretend to be evenhanded anymore.

      No, like most of the others.

        The media is for Wall St first and whichever political party looks likely to win an election because those at the top won't lose either way. Fox is rabidly right wing and no friend of democracy. Romney's biggest hindrance is that he is confusing arrogance with stupidity and talking out loud about it.

    He does seem to be hurting his chances.

    If he is serious about this campaign he needs to be prepared to actually say what he means the first time and get away from having to clarify or articulate his comments later.  Constantly having to address poorly chosen words doesn't reflect someone who has it all together and is ready to take the keys to the country.

      He may as well start writing his concession speech for November.

        But first Romney will have to find out what concession means in political terms because he only connects that word to tax avoidance.....
