    "If Romney’s described electorate—the job creators and the makers of America who were supposed to be enraged at all the moochers and the takers—ends up totaling 47%, we will have come full circle."

    Irony Alert: Romney May End Up With 47% of Votes - It's a 'perfect conclusion' to Romney saga: Greg Sargent

    Remember, this is a guy who is a "pioneer of outsourcing". Republicans thought he would bring jobs? And on his site he said he wanted to cut education and bring in immigrants with degrees. That would create jobs, for sure. But not for his base. What is it they thought they would get? "GIFTS?"

    Can these people be anymore deluded?

    And the fact that Romney ended up with 47% of the vote is hilarious. Truly hilarious.

    So he was dead right in his comments.
    He was more accurate that the right-wing pundits and as accurate as Nate Silver.
    I think you've all underestimated the man.

    I guess in a weird way.

    He said he wouldn't represent 47% of the country. Then on his website, he said he wanted to cut education and bring immigrants with degrees here. I linked to it about 50 times at least. The 47%, which is his base applauded those plans. Why? I don't know. Rick Santorum said education is for snobs and the Republican Party doesn't have the "elite, smart" people and never will. Republicans wildly applauded those comments.

    I guess Republicans, the 47%, were just making sure they wouldn't be taking any "gifts". Gifts like "jobs, support, help, organization, protection against foreign companies" and so on.

    ya destroyed all credibility in your thread when you called Romney the pioneer of outsourcing.

    Castro has outsourced more jobs

    The majority of Republicans are just fucking stupid. That's their biggest problem. They run away from education, facts and any sense of progress like a nerdy kid being chased by bullies.
