Romney campaign attempts damage control after video leak: US politics live

Sep 18, 2012 Full story: Guardian Unlimited 362

In which Mitt Romney jokes about how being Latino would help his campaign: "Had [my father] been born to Mexican parents, I'd have a better shot at winning this... I mean I say that jokingly, but it'd be helpful to be Latino." [This portion of the video was recorded at the same fundraising dinner as the Mother Jones cache but was uploaded to ... (more)

Twitt would be well advised to just disappear for the next 49 days and just STFU. Everytime he open his trap he puts his foot in it.

If he had any sense, he'd tell fat ass Annie to dye her hair black and tell everyone she's latino.

The libeal left wingers in england are trying to give aid and comfort to their fellow libs and socialist. They are trying to get out front and control the conversation......this is the new ploy since their other propaganda about blacks, gays and women didn't work.

The WH writing off,'angry white men' was no big deal. The WH writing off the groups his team had successfully cut from the herd and subsequently betrayed makes this campaign strategy suspect.

Only in OBAMALAND does the event of a politician telling the truth make headline news. LOL - I heard that this was all over twitter for ages and that the DNC knew about it for quite a while. So, question, why were they sitting on it? Were they holding it for a future DISTRACTION? Looks like it, it's a non-story but it sure did knock the real story of the unrest in the Middle East against America and the terrorist attack on an American Embassy ending in the murder of 4 American citizens, the dragging through the streets of the Ambassador and his subsequent RAPE with something. Yep, so nice to have a handy distraction waiting in the wings. Now, can we get back to the BIG LIE the Obama Administration is trying to float? The one that the murders and the attacks on TWENTY AMERICAN EMBASSIES in the Middle East Countries are all just happenstance, not directed at American foreign policy or Obama's incompetence. He and his talking heads are an embarrassment. The BIG LIE is so ludicrous that only an idiot would believe it for a minute. Let's get back to the REAL NEWS.

Better yet, how about YOU take your hate and rage and nasty mouth someplace else for the rest of your life? It would go a long way toward cleaning up the air around here.

It's worth recalling that a good chunk of the 47 percent who don't pay income taxes are Romney supporters—especially of course seniors (who might well "believe they are entitled to heath care," a position Romney agrees with), as well as many lower-income Americans (including men and women serving in the military) who think conservative policies are better for the country even if they're not getting a tax cut under the Romney plan. So Romney seems to have contempt not just for the Democrats who oppose him, but for tens of millions who intend to vote for him.

GALLUP: OBAMA 47% ROMNEY 46% , Gallup still trying to snow us with registered voters instead of the more accurate LIKELY VOTERS. And on top of that, fail to list any internals. No wonder they were number 16 on accuracy.

hmmm..... Osama Obama. I assume you are paying tribute to the american president who only took a half a term to track Osama Bin Laden down and kill him, when the previous doofus, GW Baffoon, took 2 terms and didn't even get close. Ooops... sorry... apparently he did get close.... in Tora Bora, right after 911. But for some reason, GW Baffoon ordered the troops to stand down and the #1 (not #9,#5, or even #2) most wanted man in america was allowed to slip away in the night. Don't worry though, Le Dumbo (a frequent miles poster), is in the process of formulating a response to my question: WHY?. It appears, though, much like GW Baffoon, he's having trouble locating his crayons. That's Ok, cuz I'll keep asking him... and asking him.... and asking him... and...

"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what," Romney says in one clip. "There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing."

==========

The other 53% of entitlement recipients:

Sarah Palin - each year receives a dividend check from the State of Alaska each year for doing nothing as part of the Alaska Permanent fund.

Michelle Bachmann - her family receives farm subsidies. her husband receives medicare/medicaid payments.

All of Congress - receive taxpayer paid health care benefits.

Mormon Rich Money and the 1%- the government enacted the "Bush tax cuts" in 2001 giving the 1% one of the biggest government "entitlements" for the past 11 years. Mormon Rich Money received a standard deduction from the government for each of his children.

==========

Get over yourself Mormon Rich Money. This working middle class taxpayer will be voting for Obama! Thanks for revealing what you really think of me.

The left wings goal is to create a population of dependents who need the government handouts to stay alive, and therefore continue to vote for the democrats who are the equivalent to the drug pushers creating addicts to big government.

That is why every place the left controls turns into a ghetto, they want people to be dependent and not be successful and as a result the democratic party are destroying the middle class.

What they are creating is an elite class of union members and politicians who live large off the people while the American dream becomes a thing of the past.

They weren't sitting on it...everyone was running with this BS when it first came out at the beginning of the summer.
What short memories some of the electorate have.
But you nailed it. Recent events in the Middle East and a press conference yesterday by an official over there saying that, yes, the attack on the consulate was planned in advance and it was an organized attack flies in the face of what Rice, Clinton and Carney keep telling the American people.
Time to change the news cycle. So they re-release video from last May and put the spotlight on the Romney campaign.
What's pathetic is that so many fall for it. Personally, I'm getting really tired of the Obama Administration spin doctors treating me and my fellow Americans as though we're stupid. We aren't.

Agreed. Mormon Rich Money gets more government welfare entitlement through the Bush Tax Cuts and his other deductions than I get. Boohoo hoo Mitt....the working middle class who makes $50K get all their taxes refunded to them. Mitt..your government welfare is probably 10 times what they get back from the government.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 45% of the vote. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

I'd go with Rasmussen myself! It may be even worse, why else the absolute frantic activity by the Obama Camp throwing everything but the kitchen sink at anything Romney says?
