Leave it to the liberal media. Romney said his job was not to worry about those people within the context of running for election. His job is not to worry about those people because they're going to vot for Obama regardless.

As for the taker class - Romney is absolutely right! The taker class is dragging America under! Obama is counting on it!

Romney is ahead in the polls today. The left is getting desperate with these garbage articles...

"Taker class" like Sandra Fluke invited as a DNC speaker, who is past 30 already and wants the government to fund her entertainment with free contraception and free abortions.

He's right. It's not just welfare anymore. 47% of Americans want the other 53% to pay higher taxes than they ALREADY PAY and to pick up their tab.

MSNBC is one of the 47%, they paid 0 taxes in 2010 and agitate for Barack to stay on by farting gas ALL DAY.

Take that:

Linda McMahon (R):“I disagree with Governor Romney’s insinuation that 47% of Americans believe they are victims who must depend on the government for their care.”

Peggy Noonan (conservative columnist):“...incompetent”... .“an intervention is in order.”

Charles Krauthammer (Fox): "remark not 'very smart'"

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez(R): "We have a lot of people that are at the poverty level in New Mexico, but they count just as much as anybody else"

Sen. Scott Brown(R):“That’s not the way I view the world”

Sen. Dean Heller(R): "I just don't view the world the same way he does"

VP candidate Paul Ryan(R):“He was obviously inarticulate"

Republican strategist Greg Strimple:“The problem is the campaign is now in a spiral and no one knows how to pull out”

hahahahahahahahahaha

What's really dumb is the jack azzes too stupid to know he's looking his nose down at THEM! Now how stupid is that? Since the majority of those 47% are from Southern states, White and generally vote Republican, how stupid is it to trash your own base? That's why the pundits are pissed with this idiot.

I watched the entire video and the man is a racist too! The comments he made regarding Hispanics and African Americans were racist and divisive. The man does not belong in politics, let alone being the president of this nation. Talk about clueless, and we thought no one could be dumber than George W. I guess we were wrong! LOL

Exactly. Teabagging red states are addicted to and majority recipients of Washington handouts. Apparently, they think that bitching against it will cover their sorry asses.

Now the apologists for the people on the government dole (25% of SSI recipients fraudulent, etc.) are saying those receiving welfare in various forms are paying federal excise tax on gasoline, cigarettes, etc. How foolish. People receiving government money to buy stuff aren't paying excise taxes, the government is paying itself.
It's how these people think! They think it's their money. They're twisted.
Topix's is deleting rabid, mad-dog, delusional posts with no rational thought. These deleted posts are deleted because Topix's does not support lunacy like the Republican party. You people are truly clueless about most EVERYTHING!

Are you daff? The 47% the idiot spoke about reside in Southern states, are mostly Republicans and White. They most certainly DO NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA! Although their struggling and poor as church mice, they're just as stupid and clueless as you are!

Willard and Ann are the supreme Takers. They stash all their money offshore failing to GIVE a penny to the U.S. Treasury. Today's comic in the Freep pictured them perfectly! Louis XIV and Marie-ANN-toinette ready to lose their heads thanks to the "47%". HA Ha Ha!
