You may be right, he does not need FL, CT, MA, NY, CT, IL, MD or MI to win.
It is electoral votes that count. And Florida wasn't in your original list. He can win Florida.

Ah, now I see Miami! Anyway, he is running good in Florida.

This is why I love the Right ... you guys don't let something like facts stand in your way. All this nonsense about the "47%" being Obama supporters unlikely to vote for Romney anyway. LMAO

An independent study tallied the states that had the highest percentages of non-income-tax-paying residents.

The 8 states with the highest rates of non-tax-payers are mostly ones that Romney had in the bag:

Texas, Idaho, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina.

Why ... because those state are heavily populated with college students and elderly/retirees or underpaid laborers who don't earn enough to pay federal income taxes.

Not that Romney ever had a chance in the first place, but he has less than a chance now.

Say what?

He most likely pays more fed income tax than you and ten of your neighbors.

People without teef don't count, so those states didn't make the cut. Did you not get the memo?

The truth is, people in those states - even folks who vote, who are underwater on their Fed income tax would still support Romney.

My plan this year is to vote "R" early - for my dad (deceased), my dog, and all five of my personalities.

This means nothing. Romney never stood a chance to begin with. Republican voters screwed up. Thats what cost them this election.

It was this same time 4 years ago when the McCain/Palin campaign went 'rouge' and ... well, we all know what happened after that.

Can you say, 'LANDSLIDE'?

... and also from that same 50K p/plate fund raiser Mitt went on to say ...

"If I were Iran -- a crazed fanatic, I'd say let's get a little fissile material to Hezbollah, have them carry it to Chicago or some other place, and then if anything goes wrong, or America starts acting up, we'll just say, "Guess what? Unless you stand down, why, we're going to let off a dirty bomb." I mean this is where we have -- where America could be held up and blackmailed by Iran, by the mullahs, by crazy people. So we really don't have any option but to keep Iran from having a nuclear weapon. -- Mitt Romney, May 17, 2012

I'm going to love Mitt's concession speech.

I was kind of wondering the same thing, given join date and post count.

But, trying to give benefit of the doubt.

Romney uncut is impressive. Direct. Knows his stuff. No teleprompter needed. Of Presidential timber.

Actually, the Blaze is saying Mother Jones doctored the tape. Must have cut out the parts that made Romney look too good.

Plenty. I have nothing to lose and not a sore loser, but I have the utmost confidence and faith in the general voting population, despite the 500+ right wing representers here.

It didn't work for John McCain. It's not going to work for Mitt Romney.

If John McCain beat Romney and Obama beat McCain ... what do you think Obama is going to do to Romney?

Where do you get your talking points? I've been hearing/seeing these same talking points in the MSN and parroted on forums almost verbatim. It's uncanny.

OH ... I'm sorry. Did I upset the balance of lifelong NRA/right wingers? Didn't mean to. I didn't even think about political affliations when I joined this club. Just thought it would be interesting to socialize with other Glockers.

Much to my suprise did I find a forum filled with Conservative minded/Obama-bashers.

If by 'talking points' you mean 'independently verifiable facts' you can google them yourself. You just cannot rely on one source. You must read, check and double check information for yourself.

Yep, and notice the qualifier in the study, "non income tax payer". Some of the richest in the country don't pay much if any income tax.

They pay the lions share of all taxes though.

Every single week the media declares that Romney's campaign is finished. This has become a full-blown propaganda effort in collusion with the White House.


CNBC poll: Do you agree with Romney's statements? 75% yes right now, despite media outlets going ballistic over this almost non-stop today.


Romney goes on Fox and doubles down on his statements:

Also released today, which Romney referenced in his interview:

I'm curious... with me being neither right/left or red/blue, you gotta explain... how the **** do you still have faith in the voting population seeing as that the clown in office got elected. Exactly what good has he done? Serious question, I'm not being facetious. List his pros and how this country has benefited. Here's your chance to educate people. It won't change my opinion on him, but it'll at least help me understand what goes on inside the typical liberal's brain and what makes y'all tick. A legitimate response is appreciated.
