What concerns me most is that combining 47% government dependents with maybe 6% vote fraud equals a possible win for the bad guys.

It’s as if their “leftist worldview lenses” are embedded in their eyes.

Seriously, a conservative understands the leftist worldview FAR better than any leftist understands how a conservative views the world.

Further, most leftists that I’ve encountered don’t even understand that they HAVE a lens through which they interpret the world.

” - - - there were more people riding in the wagon than pulling the wagon.”

Thanks for reminding us of Sen Gramm’s great mental image of why America is grinding to a halt.

Headline is SO on the mark! Just like the 70’s when they were aghast to learn that America was not laughing AT Archie Bunker, they were laughing WITH him.

I don't claim to know what the full impact of Romney's remarks will be. However, I know a lot of what could charitably be called "low information voters" (actually I teach them). When the subject of Romney's comments came up, they merely shrugged. Nearly everyone had a story of witnessing people using their EBT benefits, then paying cash for tattoos, beer, etc. These are not isolated cases. A popular meme going around on Facebook is "I want a new iPhone, like the lady in front of me on food stamps has."

I think our lap dog media is missing the anger and resentment of a lot of hardworking families that have suffered in this economy, but are still trying to maintain their dignity and independence, as they witness the rise of the welfare mentality all around them.

The Left is turning the 47% comment on its head and saying that Romney doesn’t “care” about them. He never said that. He simply said he’s not going to pursue their vote.

On Facebook I have offended some of my so-called friends who seem to race to their computers to post articles about how Romney has lost the presidency again. I plead guilty to progressive baiting, but they are such easy targets.

They are not interested in debate. They are, in effect, saying "There! Do you understand now? I told you!"

Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I suspect the true number is more like 35-40%. There are some who get more than they pay, but who would prefer to be a contributor rather than a taker. Not a lot, but some.
