Meanwhile, is there any suggestion here that Romney didn't actually say those words? Is there any suggestion here that Romney didn't describe 47% of this nation as 'takers'? Is there a suggestion that Jimmy Carter's son somehow falsified or selectively edited Romney's remarks?
Odd isn't it how so many on the right claim that Obama and his wife don't really buy into American exceptionalism and yet their very own candidate was caught on tape saying that half of this great country is nothing more than a lazy pile of dung.
Let's compare quotes! It'll be fun.
Here's the Republican standard bearer.
"All right -- there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing."
Now, here's Obama during his infamous "apologizing for America tour"...
hmm...We're also a country of different backgrounds and races and religions that have come together around a set of shared ideals. And we are still a place where anybody has a chance to make it if they try. If that wasn't true, then somebody named Barack Hussein Obama would not be elected President of the United States of America. That's the America I want you to know.
who would you vote for?
Romney never suggested that his comments were taken out of context nor did he suggest that he was inaccurately quoted. Instead, he said this... "In this case, I said something that's just completely wrong."
No $hit Sherlock
This board never ceases to entertain me
If there is a criticism of Romney, it is he got weak later in the campaign and said
"In this case, I said something that's just completely wrong." Admittedly, he does not have the propagandist skills of his competitor.
like I said when this story first broke ........
jimmy carter and his family had a vested interest in getting barry re-elected .......
barry is still on track to push jimmy from the worst president ever throne and jimmy knew this was his best chance ....
Yeah sure, you folks are still mad that people found out about Romney and Ryan's snobby hatred for the lower class.
Carter left a trillion dollar debt.
By the time Reagan and Bush I were done, it was over 4.5 trillion.
