Is there anything else to say other than MITT ROMNEY 47% SEX PARTY?!

If there is, I can't think of what it might be.

Unless, of course, it's reading my tweet stream from last night aloud on the air. Which definitely could happen! Why does all the funny stuff happen at night?

Definitely a "moochcaca moment," and I've got to believe that's going to dominate the discussion today. And wouldn't you know it? It's brought us right back to wondering... whether Mitt himself pays any taxes! Perfect!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

    Romney also explains that those 47 percent don’t pay any federal income taxes, “So our message of low taxes doesn’t work.”

    The danger of growing dependence on government - and the economic healing power of low taxes – are both themes that play very well with Republicans, presumably including the donors at the event on the tape. More than three in five Republicans disagree with the notion that “the government should guarantee every citizen enough to eat and a place to sleep,” the Pew Research Center Values Study found earlier this year. An April CBS News/New York Times poll found seven in 10 Republicans said lowering taxes was the best way to improve economic growth.

    The problem for Romney is, independent voters – the middle “5 to 10 percent” of the electorate he talks about winning over in the fundraiser video – don’t share those views.

    The Pew poll found about three in five independents endorse the idea of government guaranteeing citizens food and a bed. Roughly the same number agree that government “should take care of people who can’t take care of themselves.”
    Perhaps even more critically, the CBS News/New York Times poll found fewer than two in five independents believe lower taxes are the route to faster growth, compared to more than half who favor increased government spending and higher taxes.

    If Romney wanted to argue that the poor have grown a little too fond of government help, or that America can’t afford to keep borrowing to fund a safety net, the Pew polls suggest large swaths of independent voters would be receptive. But that wasn’t the argument he made at the fundraiser. He was contending that his low-tax message works with independents, but not the government-dependent, which appears not to be true.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa.  Hasn’t the 2012 campaign taught us not to jump the gun with various “gaffes”?  (Yes, I will be using scare quotes throughout.) In fact, didn’t the 2008 campaign teach us this too?  Here is my old graph with the 2008 Democratic primary polls, noting Obama’s comment about “bitter” voters who “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

  •  why doesn't romney (3+ / 0-)

    do what he does with his vulture capitalism at bain, sell the assets, cancel the pensions, close the buildings, take the money and run, there that was as easy as bain bain bain, problem solved.

  •  Childhood hunger, Michelle could be a hammer here (2+ / 0-)

    She is champion now of Childhood obesity, healthy eating, sustainable eating, etc....

    Its a complimentary way she could talk about government programs that have helped reduced childhood hunger.

    I don't care what color your political brand is, show a hungry kid and you get sympathy.

    I am paraphrasing pretty closely, I think. Mitt asserted that he and Ann earned everything. We inherited nothing.

    Is this true? Has anyone looked into this? No inheritance to either of them? No trusts? No gifts of cash, real estate? Who paid for college? graduate school, expensive secondary education?

    •  Its a technicality on a word (0+ / 0-)

      Inheritance means you directly get it from the estate of the deceased.

      Now property set into blind trusts, gifted away to 501 organizations, you name it. There is all manner of loop holes out there to avoid estate taxes. And since it doesn't come directly from the estate, on a word technicality he did not inherit it.

        In the video going around he adds that "Everything I earned I earned the old fashioned way."

        •  Well earned is correct as well (0+ / 0-)

          And if by earned he means the earnings generated for him by the various investment portfolios setup by his father.
