Mitt Romney may have blown the election

Right now I'm watching the news have a field day on Romney and his remarks on the deadbeat 47%, latinos, and African Americans.

Even conservatives have stated he has blown it

He'd better come out swinging on this or he is done

can't be that bad, Obama called rural America "clinging to guns and bibles" and lost some points with the African American vote by telling them to "take responsibility" and still won the election

I highly doubt it.

I'd say he picked up just as many votes from the "Finally, somebody had the guts to say it" crowd as he lost from the "OMG how offensive" crowd.

If people aren't going to vote for him because he told the truth, they were going to vote NObama anyways.

Nothing to see here.

ditto - makes no difference. If anything, it'll backfire on the mainstream media for making people think about the ridiculousness of it all. It's not as if Mitt lied or stretched the truth after all. How can this be a negative?

I'll ask again. How can this be a negative? He's absolutely right and people on both sides know it. There are people who will vote for Obama no matter what. His stating that doesn't change that. Do you really think independents will be so appalled by that statement? I don't think so.

Or to put it another way, hey may or may not lose in a landslide on Nov 6 but it won't be because of this statement. Speaking the obvious truth that everybody knows just doesn't resonate negatively with people, sorry.

Mittens was never going to win anyway. He's a liberal, and liberal challengers cannot unseat sitting liberal presidents. He's the guy that lost to John McCain four years ago, for crying out loud.

It would be a smart move for the RNC and super pacs to shift all their attention and funds to the senate candidates. Stick a fork in mittens, he is done.

The crowd that you're saying he might pick up votes from is the same crowd that was going to vote for him, anyway (to vote against Obama).

Which isn't to say I think this blew his chances.

I wish both candidates would blow their chances for election...

Right.

That's what I mean. Nothing gained, nothing lost.

Not really... you can thank narrow minded Americans.

You're a brainwashed fool if you think this will be a negative against Romney.

Really?

You think there's enough hardcore conservatives out there to carry Mitt to a victory? I hope you're right because most of the moderates are going to shy away from him after this!

Yeah, the left-wingers are always willing to lie if it means they can accuse somebody of racism.

Thought for a minute that I was reading posts on MSNBC or HuffPo, the stupidity of the American electorate, which is almost eager to have the Main stream media tell them what to think, is appalling and offensive to anyone with an active braincell!
The left wing media, which is actually just an extension of the Obama regime's ministry of propaganda is in full swing, and the weak minded public who can't think beyond the last media matters sound bite, are swallowing the garbage!
If the American public are willing to believe the obvious lies of the Obama campaign, we will deserve the pathetic governance we get !

There are more people in rat-holes like NYC, Trenton NJ, Compton, LA, Miami, Hartford CT, Bridgeport CT, Chi-town IL, Detroit, Buffalo NY, Philly, Boston MA, Baltimore MD, Richmond VA, etc etc to swing electoral votes in Mr. Obama's favor.

And when I say "more people", I am talking about poor urban people, typically poor migrants or blacks.

Mitt is mostly done. I am focusing on the congressional races.

The only one of those states that Mitt has a chance with is VA. And he still does there. Doesn't matter if he loses by 1% or 100% in those states.

He doesn't need them to win.

Yeah, thats what I was thinking. The big urban areas where the "47%" are concentrated in (LA/NYC/Chicago etc) are in reliably blue states - which in itself should tell you something.

If O had this election on ice, how come Rasmussen puts Romney AHEAD in its daily tracking poll by 2-3 points and ahead in the swing states by 2 pts?? A sitting president thats under 50% less than 60 days out is in serious trouble.
The numbers just aren't there for Obungo, unless you read the New York Times I guess Even best from Gallup today
is O 47% (yeah...seriously) and Romney at 46%.

Note that this is AFTER all the cheer leading by the leftist press. You can tell Romney hits a nerve when the scumbags go into a tizzy - if they are worried about something then its a good thing.

I think Romney should run with this - look the electorate in the eye and say "You have a choice - you want a nanny state because there are no jobs, go for O. You want less regulation, less dependence , more jobs vote for me!"
