    Did Romney just stumble into a winning message? | New York Daily News

    Dependency Sells.

    The explosive tape wherein Mitt Romney is caught talking about his campaign strategy has been the lead story on television and in print since it leaked this past Monday. And it's put Romney on the defensive. Last night, while speaking at a Univision forum, he told the crowd his campaign wasn't just about half the country or certain voters, but "100% of America." In fact, he used the phrase "100%" three times in is opening statements alone.

    But was the tape actually such a damning thing? Or did it surprisingly give Romney the message framework he's so desperately needed to jolt his campaign back on track?

    Despite the feigned shock and awe of the pundit class -- which includes many slack-jawed Republicans -- over the damage Romney's comments will do, introducing the theme of dependency could turn out to be a boon for the Romney campaign.

    There's plenty of evidence, in fact, that dependency -- even if Romney got the numbers wrong and managed to indict red state voters, veterans, the elderly and millionaires in the process -- is a winner in terms of voter appeal.

    The Washington Post yesterday outlined just how well Romney's comments -- as well as what people perceived as his honesty -- were playing in some key states like Nevada, Florida, New Hampshire, Ohio and Wisconsin: “I worry a lot about the society we’re turning into, more of an entitlement mentality,” said Randy Schumaker, a Denver-area IT manager.

    And just today, a new Rasmussen poll finds that a majority of Americans -- 64% -- think too many of us are dependent on government financial aid. Just 10% think not enough Americans are dependent on the government.

    ***********************
    Let's see what happens. Of course, this means that many on the left will have to admit their addiction (and you can shove the southern red state comments....they used to be blue states and they created a huge dependency class).

    Maybe Romney can drive this one home.

    Sure he did. "Fuck 47% of the people" sounds good to the other 53%. And 53% will win it!!

    I don't recall him suggesting he have sex with 47% "of the people". Does that disappoint you ?

    You get away scott free you asswhipe.

    I know. Why don't you pay 5% like we do?

    Right across the board.? We're still pissed at it we aren't happy but we're working on it.

    But why don't you pay 5% right across the board everyone to wipe out your debt?

    Just do it. Why won't you?

    We used to pay 7%. Called GST. Goods and Service tax.


    Do it. It's the great equalizer. Everyone pays it. Don't you care about your country?

    That is the point of the OP....maybe electing Romney would be a vote to stop the direction of entitlements.

    I think Romney prefers to starve Granny in the street instead of going through the trouble of pushing her off a cliff.
