    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:crying:

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

    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.

    Unless Barry blows it in a major way it's a done deal.

    We can thank Mitt for four more years!!!!!! :upeyes::upeyes::upeyes:

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

    Blew the election for stating the truth? If that is the case, the American people get what they deserve.

    And those people, even the indy ones, weren't going to vote for him anyway.

    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!

    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...

    Republicans will vote the same as they always do, Democrats will vote the same as they always do. Getting on the bad side of the independent moderates could be a bad thing.

    Right.

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

    Where did he say the 47% were deadbeat Latinos and African Americans? Or is this your slanted view? You should be a speech writer for mittens.

    Independent moderates pay taxes too. He won't get the liberal welfare vote, oh well... he wasn't getting that anyway.

    I saw the video, and I didn't see anything about blacks or latinos.

    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?
