What Mitt needs to hear and understand is the fact he is not worthy of being POTUS. He has nothing to give this country nor its people. He is a taker, a user, an abuser. Ryan isn't all that far behind either.
People are missing the full story here on the Romney remarks. It isn't just him, it is essentially the whole GOP that has this attitude. Parse out the GOP comments on this and you will get the feeling that they are more upset as to HOW he said it than what he actually said.
Romney said nothing your own liberal strategist's haven't said almost a year ago. I'm shocked to learn Mitt has lost the Garvey blog demographic.
Was Romney also referring to some of the highest 1% who find ways to avoid paying taxes, or offshore to avoid taxes???? Would we then have to say that same group of the 1% also won't vote for him?! !
Wrong again SW, us college educated voters know Obama compromised our constitutional rights via executive fiat. Us college educated voters have seen Obama's environmental policies do more damage than Bush's. Us college educated voters have seen Obama cowtow to Wall St, Big Ag and everyother unpatriotic business in America. It's the laborer and working middle class that don't want to see their future and their childrens future stolen by the "new republicans" that support Obama
SW - the NYT article you refer to makes a very interesting point about the modern Democratic coalition. As the article states, the strategy of modern Democrats might possibly be summed up as follows - "All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned in favor of cementing a center-left coalition made up, on the one hand, of voters who have gotten ahead on the basis of educational attainment -- professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists -- and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic." However, don't think that's the group Mitt was referring to with the 47% comment. After all, professors, artists, lawyers, teachers,etc. do pay income taxes AND it would be pretty hard to argue that they don't take responsibility for their lives because they're so dependent on government. It appears your conclusion that Romney's remarks express the same idea that Democratic strategists are trying to implement to win in 2012 is way off the mark.
