    So we have all heard Romney's 47% statement and then Romney came out and say he is for 100% of all Americans yesterday doing damage control

    We have also all heard Obama's "You didn't build that" speech to the 53% of us who do work telling us we didn't get where we are on our own. Then we watched him come out and say that wasn't what he meant and he represents all americans doing damage control.

    Also we all watched Obama come out and attack Romeny's leaked video saying he (Obama) is for 100% of Americans.


    Am I the only one on the forum that is seeing the similarities between the President and the Canidate's comments and subsequent damage control methods?

    This would of course make you objective, a term that the fanboys on both sides don't seem to comprehend.

    They both spun those quotes until they were woozy in the head. Can't tell their supporters that though.

    Reminds me of an episode of The Office. Dwight turns on a black light in Michael's hotel room and there are stains all over the place.


    Michael Scott: Woah. What are all those stains?

    Dwight Schrute: Blood, urine or semen...

    Michael Scott: God, I hope it's urine.

    Are you asserting that the 47% you and Mitt speak of don't work?

    Obama said that businesses did not build roads and bridges

    Romney said that 47% of Americans who are dependent on government, who think they are victims, who expect the government to pay for healthcare, homes, food and "whatever", who have no personal responsibility

    The two statements are not even close
