why? these "victims" all vote Democrat anyways, hopefully this will wake up the 53% who pay income taxes to vote to stop Obama from creating more "dependents".

Why doesn't it surprise me that you're not ashamed of a candidate for president that has open hostilities for half of America?

for your information, and for you to ignore, He did not say anything negative about them, all he said was he wasn't worried about getting their vote because they vote democrat no matter how bad their candidate is, and badly he has failed. It is just the whiny Libs wanting to make that sound like a negative. Here is his quote word for word:
"There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. "

now tell us how that is not true other than arguing the actual percentage quoted.

so calling someone who is retired or disabled a victim who feels entitled isn't negative?
if they are relying on the government to take care of them, and always voting Democrat because of that, then yes they are playing the victim, and what he said is exactly right. Negative? only if you equate being a victim and voting Democrat as a negative. If you are proud to be dependent on government and proud to vote Democrat then why would you be offended?

obama is counting on this, which is why he keeps adding to the Victims numbers,for example from todays headlines:
Obama administration officials have insisted that their decision to grant states waivers to redefine work requirements for welfare recipients would not “gut” the landmark 1996 welfare reform law. But a new report from the Congressional Research Service obtained by the Washington Examiner suggests that the administration’s suspension of a separate welfare work requirement has already helped explode the number of able-bodied Americans on food stamps.

In addition to the broader work requirement that has become a contentious issue in the presidential race, the 1996 welfare reform law included a separate rule encouraging able-bodied adults without dependents to work by limiting the amount of time they could receive food stamps. President Obama suspended that rule when he signed his economic stimulus legislation into law, and the number of these adults on food stamps doubled, from 1.9 million in 2008 to 3.9 million in 2010, according to the CRS report

another reason Obama is going to lose:
"The first opinion poll to be conducted after last week’s deadly attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya and a spate of anti-American protests across the Muslim world has recorded a five-point drop in approval for President Obama’s handling of foreign policy.

The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Tuesday found the president’s foreign policy approval among registered voters at 49 percent, down from 54 percent one month earlier.

“The fall was steeper among independents, going from 53 percent in August to 41 percent,” NBC reported."

at least Obama had time to do Letterman rather than deal with any of this...

so people who paid into social security and vote democrat are victims. Not humans who contributed to society and paid taxes.
you can be both you know. Just because you contributed at one time, and now are dependent does not make you "inhuman". It makes you a victim when you rely on Government and always vote Democrat because of this.

if he wanted to help these people, he would not have done such a poor job in leading the Recovery that is the worst since the Great Depression.
evidence:
What is so striking about Obamanomics is how it so doggedly pursues the opposite of every one of these planks of Reaganomics. Instead of reducing tax rates, President Obama is committed to raising the top tax rates of virtually every major federal tax. As already enacted into current law, in 2013 the top two income tax rates will rise by nearly 20%, counting as well Obama’s proposed deduction phase-outs.

The capital gains tax rate will soar by nearly 60%, counting the new Obamacare taxes going into effect that year. The total tax rate on corporate dividends would increase by nearly three times. The Medicare payroll tax would increase by 62% for the nation’s job creators and investors. The death tax rate would go back up to 55%. In his 2012 budget and his recent national budget speech, President Obama proposes still more tax increases.

Instead of coming into office with spending cuts, President Obama’s first act was a nearly $1 trillion stimulus bill. In his first two years in office he has already increased federal spending by 28%, and his 2012 budget proposes to increase federal spending by another 57% by 2021.

His monetary policy is just the opposite as well. Instead of restraining the money supply to match money demand for a stable dollar, slaying an historic inflation, we have QE1 and QE2 and a steadily collapsing dollar, arguably creating a historic reflation.

And instead of deregulation we have across-the-board re-regulation, from health care to finance to energy, and elsewhere. While Reagan used to say that his energy policy was to “unleash the private sector,” Obama’s energy policy can be described as precisely to leash the private sector in service to Obama’s central planning “green energy” dictates.

As a result, while the Reagan recovery averaged 7.1% economic growth over the first seven quarters, the Obama recovery has produced less than half that at 2.8%, with the last quarter at a dismal 1.8%. After seven quarters of the Reagan recovery, unemployment had fallen 3.3 percentage points from its peak to 7.5%, with only 18% unemployed long-term for 27 weeks or more. After seven quarters of the Obama recovery, unemployment has fallen only 1.3 percentage points from its peak, with a postwar record 45% long-term unemployed.

Previously the average recession since World War II lasted 10 months, with the longest at 16 months. Yet today, 40 months after the last recession started, unemployment is still 8.8%, with America suffering the longest period of unemployment that high since the Great Depression. Based on the historic precedents America should be enjoying the second year of a roaring economic recovery by now, especially since, historically, the worse the downturn, the stronger the recovery. Yet while in the Reagan recovery the economy soared past the previous GDP peak after six months, in the Obama recovery that didn’t happen for three years. Last year the Census Bureau reported that the total number of Americans in poverty was the highest in the 51 years that Census has been recording the data.

wow, is that the best you can come up with? The world is going into complete meltdown, and he thinks its better to go on Letterman than meet with Israel leader or deal with this situation. You response is to compare that to the first few minutes after 9/11 attacks? you are amazing, and a perfect example of Liberal intelligence. Thanks

Are you still repeating that tired old line about the worst recovery? All your doing is showing ignorance, comparing the worst economic conditions since the depression to a normal business cycle recession. They ain't the same, no matter how many times you say it.

you still repeating those same old excuses as to why obama has failed when every other President overseeing a recovery did not? All you are doing is showing your ignorance, as the article stated, the worse the recession the stronger the recovery has been historically. The recession under Reagan was far worse, and his recovery was far, far, far better than anything Obama can hope for. The article from Forbes explained why.

He hasn't failed - the economy has improved slowly but steadily despite the GOP's efforts to ruin the country.

We are not trying to ruin the country. We are only trying to ruin it until the election. Please get your facts straight. We love America as long as it is ran by a rich, elite white guy.

I'm assuming that you're talking about the Reagan who had a Democrat-dominated congress that actually put politics aside and worked together with Reagan to bridge differences and to make America a better, stronger nation, as opposed to today's GOP who've done nothing except block jobs bill after jobs bill and have made it clear since even before Obama took office that their top priority was to defeat him in 2012?? Yes, that's what I thought.
