    "There is no sin greater in a presidential race than telling the truth. Romney is being excoriated for accurately describing the situation in America today. Here are the stats:
    *49% of all Americans pay no fed income tax
    *47% receive a check from the government of which more than half are means tested welfare checks (Medicaid, welfare, food stamps, etc.)"

    Hey KG, since you're part of the 47%, how does it feel knowing what Mitt really thinks about you?

    He thinks that I don't pay taxes? Which is true?

    Why don't you tell us what YOU have read into his comment about what he "thinks" about the 47 percenters?

    What do you *imagine* he meant? What are you going to claim he *said*?

    I imagine you can come up with something imaginary and damning for the missing 1-2 minutes as well. Go for it, this is your big chance.

    Meanwhile:

    Majority, but not all, of '47 percent' likely to back Obama, exit polls suggest - The Hill's On The Money

    Can you Republicans make up your minds already? Of the major parties, you claim to be the one that wants less taxes. Shouldn't you want to do away with the income tax altogether?

    The point is, you loons lie when you claim he's lying.

    He's right on the money. 47 percent are dependent upon government programs, and think the government owns and owes them.

    You guys don't realize you're that way, though, so of course you're going to cover it up.

    KG, are you planning to give back your federal tax return money to the IRS to show solidarity with Romney?

    That is not ALL he said or WHAT he meant. HE said 47% of those who do not pay any income tax will only vote for obama because of the goverenment freebies they get and he is not worried about them. In essence he said to 47% of Americans "fuck you" and there is not way to take it out of context or miss speak. Most of those who do not pay any income taxs are working hard every day and their income is supplemented by Government assistance. And most who receive some help have already paid into the sysytem. What the village idiot do not understand is how hard it is to get a welfare check. Welfare checks are only given to children and it only allows people to merely exist. NO one LIVES off welfare.
    There are as many right winger that are poor and get some form of government assistance as there are left winger. And they are voting for Romney.


    In the video, Romney described nearly half the country, or 47%, as people who won't "take responsibility for themselves," who are "dependent on government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it."
    This is a direct insult to MORE than half of Americans. MORE than 47% of Americans are benefiting from some form of government asisstance. Even Romney's sorry ass.
