Romney is right. I’m liking this guy a bit more every day.

The people who would be offended by this are voting for Obama; I, too, find it refreshing that Romney thinks like I do on this.

He’s right..good for Romney to speak the TRUTH. What he should be doing is saying this on the campaign trail instead of just saying it to private donors. Libs can’t stand hearing the truth, it gets in their crawl that we are sick and tired of hearing about people who want a nanny state. The woman in Missouri in 2008 saying how she will get free food, car, house, mortgage paid, etc etc if she votes for Obama says it all. These people and the Occupy movement, they are not about getting jobs, they are about getting FREE STUFF. They don’t want to work, they want to sit on their asses getting free Govt goodies

Romney is obviously trying to win me over. Its working.

The worst thing he can do is apologize or try to walk this back. He needs to pound this nail with a 9 pound sledge. If he’ll do that this will win for him. The idea of a politician who speaks frankly and says the things we all know are true will be a breath of fresh air.

While he’s at it, he might mention something about a president that repays dead ambassadors by liberating convicted terrorists.

Liberals quickly condemned the remarks as insensitive and Mr. Obama’s campaign accused him of having “disdainfully written off half the nation.”

All the while hoping to see even more people dependent on the government.

It needs to be said. If he loses the election for speaking like this then we have to face the fact that the country is over. Demographics are not in our favor.

Romney...should run with this.....ask yourself...how did this happen...how are your neighbors, co-workers...people that used to stand proud, carry the mail, make the cars, build the houses,start the businesses....now dependent on the Government....and Obama is proud? He is proud to say the economy is working? He is proud that 48% of America is dependent on Government!!! It doesnt have to be this way...dont buy it ...not for a second....we are Americans.........Come on Romney....get on it!!!! like yesterday...............

Perhaps we need signs and t-shirts:

“I’m part of the 53%.”

EXACTLY..Romney needs to stand by this statement..he can’t backtrack and say “I didnt mean any harm by this” or any of that BS..stand by it because its the TRUTH..and you know what, if this costs Romney the election this country was already lost. Its about damn time Romney say something I actually agree with and he took the words right out of my mouth

Romney should ask for their votes anyway, and explain why they and the country would be better off if they could do more to earn their way.

He might not get many votes that way, but he would get some. Even 2% of the 47% might put him over the top.

The election is coming down to Ayn Rand’s central thesis of the producers versus the moochers. Might as well just get it out in the open.

Mr. Romney please don’t back down on this or apologize for this when the screaming starts from the Democrats and the liberal press.

Dittos, I like to hope he’s reaching people who don’t know that, who will change their minds when educated.

But who doesn’t know, rats eat taxes they do not produce, they consume what other’s produce. Parasites on the Nations treasures.

Exactly. This goes for the weak so-called FReepers who are already crying about this statement in another thread on these comments.

“The worst thing he can do is apologize or try to walk this back. He needs to pound this nail with a 9 pound sledge.”

Absolutely. Hope someone in his campaign understands that. Also hope that he governs this way eventually. Truth over ‘feelings’.

We’ll see.
