    Polls Show Romney’s 47 Percent Moment Breaking Through, ‘You Didn’t Build That’ Fizzling | TPM2012

    47% comment has net negative affect on Romney support:

    "You didn't build that" has net positive affect:

    Interesting research.

    Many of those 47% actually built and defended most of what you youngins now enjoy.

    Romney's remarks don't even compare to Obama's..

    The people who built their business with their blood, sweat and tears were offended and there are many of them..

    And now with these new tapes of the REAL Obama coming out

    tsk tsk

    Most people weren't stupid enough to believe the Republican bullshit of taking the build comment out of context.

    Most people weren't stupid enough to think Mitten's quote was taken out of context.

    Maybe there really is hope for the country.

    (Stuphanie being the exception to the above)

    Republicans will never understand why everyone is not as angry as they over the same things, populism is a slippery eel for anyone not genuinely concerned for the nation at large.

    And, they know that the "... you didn't build that ... was a yet another lie from Mittens.

    A) It was "new" in '05.

    B) Its not racist to tell the truth about racism in the US.

    A) I agree that MitWit can't keep up with President Obama.

    B) As the lying rw's know, the context went on to say highways, etc. I built a successful business and I could not have done without the infrastructure that was built by other Americans AND the American government. Since you live on your elderly mother's welfare check, you would have no way of knowing what its like to build anything except a pile of dirty dishes for someone else to clean up for you.

    C) ... sigh ... The "new tapes" are ONE video and it is NOT new. Please, write it fuck down or something but get it through your thick skull that everyone except rw's here and hannity saw them way back in 05. This is 2012. Take of your shoes and do the fucking math already.

    Exactly. Mittens was talking from the heart to his fellows. I think people were offended by the out of context campaigning Mittens did by showing that tiny segment of the Presidents speech that day. We all know what the point of his speech was..."when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together".

    Yep Hannity and his fellow nuts are gonna have a party........Yawn.
