    Your war on capitalism is killing this country and you will be held accountable.

    Does anyone bother to do even a cursory search before they post?

    I heard the comment from the source, the primary source, Mitt Romney. If you have a point, Windbag, please post it.

    Anybody can incorporate. Corporations -R-Us. I'm not a big fan of Romney but he is right and I am truly surprised at the attitude of radical lefties.

    I saw the same clip.

    I dunno how anyone thinks he's going to win the general now.

    Lots of baggage, then this.

    It was that bad.

    It's not just that..

    He started out by saying he wanted to save SSI and Medicare.

    Someone in the audience challenged him on that.

    After the corporation quip, which was bad enough..the guy asked how Romney was going to save SSI.

    Romney replied, "If you wanna raise taxes, vote for Obama!"

    Which essentially means..he understands that taxes need to be raised for entitlements and he's never going to do that. Even if it means the end of the entitlement.

    He just lost the Senior vote.

    And that's alot.

    I could not incorporate myself as a corporation so I could get the same tax deductions as coprorations do.

    perhaps what romney meant was that corporations were his friends?
