There's a good reason why b. h. obama did not bring up the 47% during the debate, he's feared a rebuttal that would sink his behind...

The only thing that matters is the real one poll news stations do not show. The show their own versions to keep you watching so they can sell ads.

Obama cannot lose unless his supports just don't vote because they know he wins and he put a little fire under their butts the other night sending the message get out and vote using fear on his own party. He could care less about a first debate and did same as Reagan did in his first one of second term to get his own party scared!

270 needed to win and 300+ for a landslide. THIS ELECTION IS OVER AND OBAMA WON LIKE IT OR NOT.

He's in full retreat from writing off 47% of the population, as he should be....what shameful pandering to his rich white friends, never saw such a disgrace.

His campaign should have the plug pulled...

That's GOTTA be the reason because it's not like those comments of Romney's were on TAPE or anything.

We saw the real Mitt in that famous 47% tape. He was candidly speaking to his own peers who had to pay $50,000 to be in that "quiet room". He said exactly what he thinks. Shame on anyone who votes for this shill for the 1%. Willard is a liar!

Yes, but it's too bad you're so stupid you were not able to follow what you heard. The discussion was about how to win votes...period. It was not whether or not Romney had an emotional connection to any group or sub-group or how he'd represent their interest if elected. Obama has these exact same kinds of discussions and they bandy about all sorts of off-the-cuff numbers too. The only difference is that nobody (yet) has a tape of Obama speaking about how to win votes. But you're an idiot if you think he doesn't. They ALL do.

Politics is war and what you witnessed was just a very small snippet of a behind-the-scenes strategy session, nothing more. As with sausage, it's not always pleasing to see how politics are made. But you are hopelessly, incredibly and unbelievably naive if you think Obama and his crowd are saints who go about voicing only heavenly, moral and spotless utterances behind closed doors. He's just an ordinary Chicago politician, not some sort of visiting angel. Don't be such a patsy.

Quit trying to spin his commments, partisan tool.

Of course he was talking about voters, but he wrote off 47% of them and insulted them by suggesting they couldn't take personal responsibility, were deadbeats, etc.

Why are you licking the boots of the man who is stepping on your face, tool?

You are the stupid patsy. What I said is the truth about Willard "I don't worry about the poor." This discussion is about Willard! Get a grip!

GUIDE TO BEING A GOOD CONSERVATIVE:

1) All bad news in America is attributed to Obama.
2) If there is good news, it's a liberal lie.
3) If you can't undeniably say it's bad news, then cover your dumb behind by shifting the credit for Obama.
4) If all else fails, talk about his birth certificaye.
