According to Mitt almost 1/2 of US citizens do not matter, Why Not?
WOW Mitt! You dont have an arrogant bone in your body do ya!
47%? This is a very high percentage did you do the math ,right?
Clinton said, you all have a problem with arithmatic!
Mitt Romney I swear you are trying like heck to lose this election, because when I think it can not get any worse it does.
And its o.k. I truly believe you could serve America in 1000 other ways that would have more context than the Presidency.
You could start by doing a take over of Congress, and outsourcing those jobs to, say,India, perhaps.

Dude, you're not even seeing the statements in the context in which they were delivered. The point he was making with the 47% is that they don't pay any taxes and for many they are supported in large part or solely off of the government. Those are the very same kind of people that see their beloved Obama as their savior because he does his very best to squash job growth and keep them dependent on the government. So you take away their Presidential sugar-daddy, and they might not get their next government check!

While I wouldn't say that 'ALL' of them would fit that description, I wouldn't have any problem saying that many of them do. I mean damn, look at how many people have come onto the entitlement programs since Obama took office. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand the mentality behind his statement.

If Romney is able to do what he says he wants to do with reducing debt, reducing costs, and spurring job growth, that means that those able to work that 'choose' to suck off the government instead via entitlement programs are going to have to get a job. But it's much easier for them to wait for their government handout (which is funded by Americans that actually DO pay taxes) than it is to get the hell out of bed, go to work, and depend on themselves.

Those that actually DO give a damn about not sucking off the government and want more out of life will certainly see the logic behind Romney's statement. Others will consider it 'insensitive' because they don't want to face reality.

Guess you still don't understand taxes and capital gains.

BTW, offshore accounts are legal, aren't they?

Why is it that your comments, strangely coincide with a "shift workers" daily schedule of breaks and meals?

Living off the government is a crappy lifestyle by and large. I think most Americans would prefer to work. There's no way this nation was built with a 47% freeloader factor and there's certainly no way such a ratio can be sustained.

What Mr. Obama and his handlers don't seem to get is that Americans want jobs now. They don't want to wait. Thanks for buying lunch Mr. Obama, but some of us want to get our American dream in gear now. WTF happened to all that QE money? Couldn't some of it be used to create the kinds of public works jobs that saved us from the depression?

It might be a good idea to get those underway BEFORE the depression hits. The GM shell game is starting to look like Solyndra which should be scaring the crap out of America. Instead it's all being played down. Keep your eye on the bouncing EBT card folks, it can't be sustained.

Caesar thought he could save his economy by making the coins slightly smaller. It failed miserably and people starved to death in the streets. We're about to print our 3rd load of paper money backed by the same, single pile of gold as the other 2. It can't be sustained.
Grobbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb

If Obama is not trying to bankrupt America, why is he doing such a good job of it?

You are just the kind of stupid nobama is looking for! If you don't KNOW the 13% he pays is CAPITAL GAINS TAX, NOT INCOME TAX! You're the useless idiot I've come to know you to be. Capital gains is a tax he pays in ADDITION to income taxes, on gains he makes on investments! He's paying the MAX as per the IRS tax rates, 35%. Then he pays an ADDITIONAL 13% on the gains in his investments, dumbass. Now you were saying?
