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.
I agree. The question is will it drive a certain fraction of them who weren't going to vote to the polls.
Nevertheless, I gotta admit I agree with almost everything he's said here and he may be in the process of winning this skeptical conservative over. The correct reaction here is NOT to run from these statements, but back them up with facts and statistics. If he retreats, he loses.
