    Now shut the fuck up. We have a failed obama economy to discuss.

    i dont think you watched the whole video.

    he explained why romney's comments were low ball - because the entire 47% are NOT moochers, as Romney implied...........and as the video describes.

    Which should tell you that Romney was wrong for classifying all 47% as hopeless government leeches.

    Military put their blood on the line, for their Country.

    And the stats that he mentions did not back up Romney's statements.

    Romney really dropped the ball here. If Romney read that quote that was read at the end of the video, nobody would have issues with what he said. Romney just made a really idiotic statement in his video that was released this week.

    The reality is that he spoke in sweeping unqualified generalities and showed a striking amount of contempt for nearly half of the people in this country and got a spanking. It does not matter if he was correct in some sense, he was wrong in his shitty attitude and only reinforced his elitist 1% image.
