The truth shall set you free.
just let it lay Mitt
The 53% have to pay their fair share can’t be far behind.
I hope there is a “rest of the story”.
Otherwise Romney has made a mistake.
I watched the whole speech Romney gave in VA today. It was only about 10-15 minutes and he didn’t mention anything about this.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has described his disparaging remarks about the 47% of Americans who don't pay federal income taxes as "not elegantly stated." Now he's calling them "just completely wrong."
those are two completely different things..one says I...the other says THEM..
typical AP crap
He just said that he'll be president of 100% of Americans and his comments were wrong.
If all 47% of non-fed tax paying citizens don't vote for him, as he predicted in his comments, he will lose the biggest landslide in the history of the republic. There are plenty of liberals with jobs who sure as hell ain't voting for him.
We better all hope his comments were wrong.
So much for claim that the comment was a big winner. MR knows its not.
I thought those a-holes at Mother Jones admitted to editing out 2 minutes of the audio that made what he was saying about the 47% sound worse. If true, why not just explain that?
Good for Romney. Elitist class warfare is a loser and it’s wrong. True conservatism looks to Ronald Reagan, not Thurston Howell.
Good for Romney. Those comments were wrong.

Obama’s ASSociated Press
I heard him say the same thing on Hannity tonight. He shouldn’t have apologized.
A lot of people agree with the idea of the 47%. He could have restated it differently and ran with it. Obama will slam him with it now.
I don’t think Obama wanted to touch it last night because he knows how people feel about the increasing numbers of people being put on welfare.
You know, it doesn’t bother me.
He seems like he is an honest guy, and if he says he didn’t mean something ot that he was wrong, then I believe he means that.
The man can speak for himself, and I do respect that about him.
He referred to the 47% who suck on government teat AND who are Bammy supporters are the ones he’ll never reach and shouldn’t bother with. Funny how everyone misses that part. Of course, even with 1/3 of US welfare recipients in California, even 47% is a bit high.
Besides, I thought Obamaphone wench proved the point nicely and that certainly went viral.
Many of the 47% are not there by choice. Many are there and still there because of Obama's policies. Which are designed to grow the percentage well above 50% in order to ensure a permanent Democrat majority and a
classless two-class society: the gubment nomenklatura and the rest of you peasants!
The correct response to the fat-cat donor's question would have been to explain how WMR's policies will put those of the 47% who want to work back to work and restore their self-respect (along with that of the United States of America).
Most people don’t vote.
Of those that do, most pay taxes.
Of those that don’t, most have in the past.
Of those that don’t pay and haven’t paid, most think they do pay.
Of those that vote, don’t pay, haven’t paid, and are aware they have never paid, nearly zero changed their vote based on Romney’s remark.
Now he’s kinda apologizing to them.
Net vote change: 2 votes.
