Why is this a story? Mitt was right, only his figures are low! Between fear mongering from the Govt, mass media, Insurance Companies how can we not feel that we are under attack and ultimately victims?
"The land of the free and the home of the brave!" Hah! Maybe we used to be,but now it's the land of the FEE and the home of the SLAVE!
My president was elected by dead people!

It was Romney who broke the story that 47 percent of Americans believe they are victims. He should get the Journalism award.

Congratulations to Mother Jones - their reporting of the 47 percenter comment was one of the reasons Mitt (the 47 percenter) lost the election.

And even the frightwingers could not deny he said it.

(Btw, Terry, those voters were wide awake and alive when they did not vote for Romney! LOLL)

Proof that secret tapings and spying on citizens running for office is the coming mantra for the socialist demcrats......

However, month by month since Jan 1 as taxes go up, healthcare costs going through the roof, gas, food prices rising because of dem policies...will crack your party soon enough...LOL

Romney has already received the award of forced retirement. Bring out the Mahjong tiles.

WCW ( WageClassWar.org ) claimed that President Barack Obama, who had a sub-40% approval rating in mid-2011, was able to win re-election just 16 months later because of his “decision to engage in class warfare, to directly engage the class war being waged by the 1 percent against the rest of the country.”

In certain key battleground states like Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, said WCW, Obama “took on the class warrior role” with particular aggressiveness by:

“constantly reinforc[ing] the contrasts” between himself and Republican challenger Mitt Romney “regarding the middle class”;

“indict[ing] the 'you’re on your own' economics of Republicans”;emphasizing his desire to “eliminat[e] the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy”;

and “painting a believable picture of ... Romney as the plutocrat who ... can’t empathize with your struggles.”

Further, noted WCW, Obama had gained “a clear advantage” as a result of Occupy Wall Street's “reframing of the nation’s most important economic issue.”

Don't know what a "frightwinger" is, but when stating an obvious truth, why would anyone deny he said it?

Anyone with a brain knows your party thrives on a dependent citizenry and will use any and all lies and propaganda to achieve that goal.

Did Mitt pay the price for telling it like it is? No one ever said it was wrong, that it wasn't true. So what's the problem? If anyone doesn't like it, then get your hands out of the govt's pocket.

Yes, something meaningless. From presidential candidate to CEO of Marriot! Pure poetry! Where will the freefall end?

By the way, Blueper, your petty little "nobama" play on words has grown increasingly tiresome. It was never clever, but now it's just plain boring.

Romney was both right and wrong on every issue he spoke to. That is because he took every position on everyone of them. He told us like it is, and a moment later, like it isn't.
