So, here's what he said. Is the 47 percent accurate? Probably not, but we do have a lot of people waiting to get given stuff by the govt.
We need to work. Work, work and work some more. There are no free rides. I have to agree with oromney on a few things ... We need to axe or restructure social security, we need put time limits on welfare help, we need to put people to work, we need to make people work hard, if it means two or three jobs so be it.
Also, have to say that the rich don't owe the poor anythin and the poor don't owe the rich anything. Everyone needs to work for himself. You want to be rich, bust your azz or take a chance.
So here's what he said ... A stupid thing to say in a campaign, lie to 'em sweet talk 'em but don't let 'em know where your heart is until after you win ...
Romney: There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that 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. And I mean, the president starts off with 48, 49, 48—he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn't connect. And he'll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean that's what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people—I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. What I have to do is convince the 5 to 10 percent in the center that are independents that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other depending upon in some cases emotion, whether they like the guy or not, what it looks like. I mean, when you ask those people…we do all these polls—I find it amazing—we poll all these people, see where you stand on the polls, but 45 percent of the people will go with a Republican
