Gov. Romney Was Correct

His comments drew truths from multiple places, but as a whole, they are wrong. You've got something like 40% of voters that are devoted to the Democrats, that won't consider a Republican. You've got 47% of Americans that don't pay income taxes, so lowering taxes doesn't affect them the same way it does others. Lastly, you have an entitlement class that will resist any change that takes government subsidies out of their pocket. There's some crossover between the groups, but they are not a single group. Some conservatives make up that 47% that take care of themselves and would prefer to reduce the welfare state.

For heaven's sake don't you see he was speaking off the cuff and generalising? The exact figures are trivial. He was driving home the major point that people, too many people and growing, will vote for the party that promises give aways. FACT FACT FACT FACT and anyone that gets caught up in the numbers and the hyperbole in the media has an agenda and is one of those that won't vote fr Romney no matter what.

That would seem to make BHO less than Presidential on many counts.

Absolutely. And on Letterman, Obama couldn't remember what the National Debt was? Gimme a break!

Exactly! Altogether now, can you say 16 TRILLION?..... I knew you could.

Unfortunately the liberal's beloved messiah wouldn't.

Truth hurts I guess.
As readers of this column and viewers of Fox News Channel may know, I have not hesitated to criticize Gov. Mitt Romney's presidential campaign and the governor himself. I have argued that his message is muddled and his values are unknown beyond his ardent wish to improve economic conditions through the use of free market mechanisms rather than central economic planning, a position with which I agree entirely.

I have also maintained that his willingness to abandon, or not to accept, first principles has made these questions reasonable: If Romney is elected president, which Romney will show up for...
