I hope Biden brings up the 47% comment and Ryan slams him with the presidents own comments early in this administration when asked about the 47% of Americans that did not vote for him.
He simply stated: "I won"
Since then, not a single piece of legislation, law or action reflects his care or concern about our 47%
“No one making less than $250,000 under Barack Obama’s plan will see one single penny of their tax raised, whether it’s their capital gains tax, their income tax, investment tax, any tax.” Joe Biden
To clarify Romney’s comment, here is what needs to be said:
Dear 47%, you deserve Obama. Ever since you could make your own decisions, you have chosen the easy path. When you could improve your job skills, you chose not to. When you could improve your financial position, you chose not to. After a lifetime of bad decisions, you have become utterly dependent on the government. Now, the government is bankrupt and thinking about repressing those who have been successful more than you.
Your life of laziness has destroyed this once great nation of entrepreneurs and individualists. Your envious nature is pushing the policies to match that of the rest of the collectivist world. You are a tumor that needed to be cut off early, but you have metastasized and are consuming the entire body.
In order to survive, my parasitic 47%, the remaining portion needs to be protected from you. We hope you understand that without the productive and the job creators, you parasites will not survive. Thus, we ask you to let us create an environment where the damage, which you parasites do, does not affect the entire body. Realise that we are not asking you to be less parasitic, because that would be unrealistic; instead, we are asking you to let the host recover and survive.
I am borrowing this and hope it goes viral : )
the 47% comment is illustrated on a larger scale by the current campaigning by both sides. They focus on the swing states knowing they already have one or lost the rest. It’s no big conspiracy. If you know you’re not going to win them over, focus on those you have an actual opportunity to convince. Simply ask Biden why he hasn’t bothered to campaign in any of the red states.
