Well, there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. There are 47% who are with him--who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they’re entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. It’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. These are people who pay no income tax. My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
Now let us take a look at an ad put out today from the Obama campaign:
Did you notice that? Obama is trying to get the working middle class to dislike Romney by saying he was talking about them. He wasn't concerned about people who pay taxes.
But look at Romney's quote again. If the 47% Romney is talking about is the 47% that don't pay taxes then this ad is a lie because Obama said Romney is slighting tax payers. If the 47% are those who will vote for Obama no matter what, then it is true there is no convincing them to vote for Romney even if they are a tax payer.
Romney was also singling out people that take benefits and expect to be taken care of at the expense of the tax payer. How does Obama get that Romney doesn't care about the tax payer?
The ad ends with a complaint about how much Romney paid in taxes in which most of his income was made from investments. Is investing bad? Isn't that what Obama says he is doing? Taking our tax dollars and investing in companies that fail?
If Romney is MAKING HIS MONEY through investments and Obama is LOSING all of OUR MONEY through investments, who is the better choice?
