Comment Preferences

  •  Most Romney Voters..... (5+ / 0-)

    ....think he's talking about "the other guy" even though he's talking about them.  It's not gonna change many minds amongst Oklahomans earning $20,000 who perfectly fit the stereotype Romney is painting but who believes he's talking about welfare queens in Detroit.

    Decent people will take offense to Romney's comments which will amount to SOMETHING, but Romney should be behind 40 points after a comment like this...but there won't be any kind of earthquake given how delusional much of the American electorate is.

    •  Yep. (4+ / 0-)

      If OFA wants to make hay of this, and I don't think they will (It's not their style), they would have to make very clear WHO really is in that 47%. Done right, it could even be effective with gop-leaning indies.  It'll never affect the base, 'cos they will just say that romney never really meant them, even when he did.

      GODSPEED TO THE WISCONSIN FOURTEEN!

      and other states. That's why it matters.

      "The election of Mitt Romney and a supporting congress this November would be a...disaster for America. Think of the trainwreck that has been the Conservative government in Britain since 2010. And square it."--Brad DeLong
