    A close horserace is more profitable for pollsters, media, & pundits. A boring race doesn't get the ratings.

    Why are elections held in November, but taxes are due in April?
    How would America change if taxes were due on election day?
    Would voters sense any cause & effect between the two?

    The people I've talked to about it say they feel Romney didn't say anything wrong. Matter of fact, their conviction to vote for him is even stronger now. I also agree with them. I think it may have helped him.

    This is simple politics, every candidate says similar things behind closed doors. Obama is probably bashing some rich people with donors right now.

    This^

    How else does anyone think Sarah Palin made it onto the previous ticket? Now you know...

    ETA: Additionally, romney will be able to come back and run again in 2016 if the media pretends he made a good, albeit losing run this year.

    For those who are without the truth, here is what romney actually said. He did not mention anyone's race that I was able to hear.

    If Americans (real Americans) were required to prove they were actual taxpaying citizens BEFORE they were allowed to vote the entire social fabric and economics of this nation would be forced to change for the better!

    I don't even like Mitt Romney; but, it's obvious to me that the organized news media is, 'Hell bent for leather' determined to do a televised media, 'hatchet job' on him. The moment you turn on your TV set, Obama can do no wrong, and Romney can do nothing right. It's that blatant, and that simple! :freak:

    So Romney & supporters may be upset that 47% don't pay income tax, I am upset that it is not 100% who don't pay.

    I completely agree. And this should apply to corporations as well as citizens.

    Read somewhere a great quote (don't recall whom it is attributed to) from the times when George Bush Sr was running for President:

    "He was born with a silver foot in his mouth. "

    Fits Mittens like a glove :)

    Although Daddy Bush was a far better Pres than any of the clowns, dimwits and community organizers competing in elections since 2000.

    While the lefties keep saying "this remark lost him the election," I have hope that this remark could help put him over the top. Secretly, I think they believe the same, which is why they are so fired up about it - to the point of deliberately lying about what was said to fool those who won't check the facts (i.e., claiming he said "latinos and african americans").

    Rush Limbaugh just stated he is not handeling the situation right. He is running scared instead to using it to his advantage.

    What's wrong with this clown, is this the best we have?:steamed:

    Out of the field of GOP Primary candidates, he still is the best hope we got.

    I doubt Newt, Bachmann, Santorium, or Paul could muster up more than 20% of the US vote.

    He really needs to focus on the fact that he will be a better choice to improve the US economy. I'm also getting nervous at the fact that he is focusing hard on OH, FL and VA while almost ignoring PA and other swing states. With good marketing, I really think Romney could take PA.

    He has got to stop playing the catch up game, and he really needs to stand up and act like he is a viable candidate.

    I still think the debates will make or break his chance at winning.
