Some Free Advice for Mitt Romney and His Campaign

The "47%" video was devastating. I doubt even a "Reagan Democrat" will support a man who insists that ALL Democrats are irresponsible, lazy freeloaders. So Romney's only hope now is Independents. Best of luck, Mitt.

I've heard this over and over since Jimmy Carters grandson "leaked" that video, but I just don't get it as being devastating. The truth is the truth. Forty-seven percent of the population do not pay federal income tax for a variety of reasons, some are working but don't make enough to pay taxes. Some are older senior citizens that do not make enough to pay taxes, etc. To assume that everyone of these people are lay abouts is just wrong. I believe that the citizens of America are smart enough to know this and will vote Romney/Ryan in november. My truth is that I love this country and I don't want obama to ruin it further.

Your post makes little sense. RMoney DID say that 47% of Americans are irresponsible, and don't take care of themselves, preferring that the government take care of them. That includes seniors collecting social security that they paid into, seniors using Medicare that they paid into, unemployed persons using unemployment insurance that they paid into, and people who meet government eligibility for food stamps because they make so little money.

I don't think people who are seniors, or down on their luck in a bad economy, are freeloaders. Mitsy RMoney does believe they are freeloaders, according to the 47% video.

"Your post makes little sense."

Translation: I can't refute it, so I'll lie.

"RMoney DID say that 47% of Americans are irresponsible, and don't take care of themselves, preferring that the government take care of them."

Romney said that 47% don't pay income taxes, and it's true. And he's exposing what the derms have been doing for AT LEAST 45 years: using the tax code to create a permanent dem base. Remember what LBJ said: "We'll spend and spend and spend, and elect and elect, and elect."

The progs are throwing this phony anger about this because Romney eposed them, just like Pat Buchanan exposed them with his "culture war" comments.

The real story about the '47%' is that that little snake David Corn didn't realease all the tape.Just the part he thought made Romney look bad.Two or three minutes were missing.

You can make a tape say anything you want if you are low-down enough to splice it,then release it and say it is complete.If there's anything dirtier than a left-wing liberal,I'd like to see it. .

You don't hear anything about Corn's dirty rotten trick,though.He is even worse than the dispicable Dan Rather.Democrats are shamless,low-down vermin.

I did refute it: I said that included in that 47% that Mitsy hates so much are seniors using Medicare and Social Security that they paid into, as well as people on unemployment that they also paid into. It includes Veterans who are wounded and cannot work. We made a promise to take care of them because they took care of us, in battle.

This isn't "phony anger" it's real anger at a man who has no honor and no sense of what makes America great.

Welfare makes America great? Redistribution makes America great? Social programs make America great?
What would you know about honor, Aura? You come here defending the indefensible; that's not honorable. It IS brave, but not honorable.

Did Romney mention seniors? I must have missed that...

Are you including seniors, or is Romney including seniors? Where in his speech did he differentiate those who pay nothing in and get something, from those that pay something in and get something back?

Like a lot of rightwingers you have things mixed up. Coming here and posting may be honorable but it isn't brave. Have you come across this before?

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

And this -

"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

See the part about pledging their fortunes to each other?

Woe to you in your den: For what purpose, exactly, did the Founding Fathers pledge their fortunes to each other? Let's see, was it to buy cell phones for "the poor?" Or was it to murder as many black babies as possible? Maybe, it was to steal money from investors in a car company and give that money to "the unions." Oh, I remember, it was to finance a war of Independence. I guess you didn't remember that, did you.

Independence from England, not independence from the govt they planned to set up.

With the debates starting Wednesday and the conventions in the rear-view mirror, campaign season is upon us. Those of you who live in a swing state are going to see more of President Obama and Mitt Romney on their televisions in the next month than they see in their mirrors during their morning shave. Oh, the joy you people are in for.

But if this campaign has shown us anything it’s that neither campaign seems to have anyone with any talent for much more than conveying boring facts to a disinterested public in their ads.

Well, that’s not entirely...
