Romney didn't write off half the voters.
He pointed out they have been bought off by Obama with taxpayers money.
No dear, Romney wrote off almost half of the nation, and did so with no clue as to who these people are.

So, let's talk about the 47%

Half of them are just hardworking families with allowable deductions (children, EIC, etc.) which zeroed out their tax burden. Paid taxes in, got refunds back.

About 2% are our underpaid military families (and they make up 1% of the nation)--Damn selfish bastards...

A tenth are the elderely, whose income consist of the social security they paid into over the years.

Less than 10% are people so poor they're not worth taxing.

And there's even a 2% that are so rich, they no longer need to work but are no longer making and "taxable income", although they are still getting nice returns on their investment income.

Now, let us not forget that 80% of that 47% still pay payroll taxes, such as FICA and social security.

That means, "They be working".

And not only working, but paying FEDERAL TAXES. Taxes that all of us who make an income pay. They're just not technically "income tax".

Payroll taxes keep getting lost in the discussion, because the GOP only chooses to talk about "income" taxes. Of course, when I look at my check, and I don't know about you, I don't see my deductions as little slivers of assorted taxes, in my mind, it's all income tax, hence the ease at perpetuating the falsehood that these people aren't paying the same taxes you and I do.

But an intelectually dishonest person, such as your buddy Mitt, will try to pass off almost half the country as lazy gadabouts by ignoring that these alleged lazy gadabouts do indeed work, and work hard at what they can, and do indeed pay taxes.

And let us not forget that his broad paintbrush has just painted our military enlisted as lazy handout-seeking bought-and-paid-for losers. Way to go, MITTENS!!!

Mitt Romney hasn't done anything to anybody.

When he talks to his donors about these 47% that are locked into Obama, he does it with disappointment, sadness, and maybe a little disgust. Where everybody analyzing this is wrong is he would love to be able to reach them. He has not written them off.

The Obama campaign has written off "white, working-class voters." He's written 'em off. Now, there's no tape of Obama saying so. But there's a column of one of Obama's supporters saying that that's what the campaign's doing.

Obama's out attempting to stigmatize anybody that has succeeded and is calling them the enemy. Where's the outrage over that?

So, off to support the tax base with my own efforts.

He's doing a pretty good job of ruining the GOP's chances at taking over the White House....

Babe, You're an idiot. You, even after being given the breakdowns, still paint the 47% as a bunch of entitled tit babies.

MY GAWD! Your stupidity is astounding!!!

The 47% includes a large number of "white, working-class voters", plus working-class voters of other colors, too. As a matter of fact, 80% of the 47% are working-class voters. YES! Working.

My outrage is that there are people in this country that are soooo stupid! Sooooo deluded, that they actually believe that. You, madam, are a lost cause, but a good example to those who would follow.

Tell me, you've got your head firmly lodged up Romney's rear (this week), does it smell like roses or something?

In other words, you're hardly worth the effort. Your claims are based upon the ramblings of two different conservative bloggers that make allegations they can't back up.

This from one that cannot understand the actual function of the dollar bill and how corrupt our country really is.
