    @Stan Plus those that don't pay income taxes do pay some form of tax. Just saying.


    @Stan I'm not stupid so thanks a lot for that stay classy. I heard the whole speech and Romney sounded horrible. Joking that he would have an easier time if he was Latino, yes that will win more Latino voters over. Telling people to carry around a bomb? Oh yes smart. The 47% he said he said THEY DON'T PAY INCOME TAX anyways which is bul. So whatever I will know what I know but he sounds like a flip flop he says one thing then takes it back that is all the headlines are his team always has to clear up what he meant what kind of president what that make. No matter about this 47% I could care less about it anymore but with what he says and then how his team has to clear up what he meant that is just not a kind of guy I want in office. He is no where near ready to be president in my eyes.


    @Holly- this is what happens when all you live by is a sound bite! Romney was talking about voters that could possibly be wrapped up ANYWAY by Obama! He is saying- "SO FORGET ABOUT THE 47% , LET'S SAY OBAMA HAS THEM, LET'S JUST FORGET THEM AND WE TAKE OUR 47% AND FIGHT FOR THE ONES IN THE MIDDLE! " he is talking about votes not the welfare of people but that's what you get when you hear 15 seconds of a 2 hr. fundraiser! Be anything holly but don't be stupid .


    @ Connie- u can't drop out in jr hi stupid ass. And I think u got your panties stuck up your wide ass. If we can't type how r u responding. Your reading level may b a little low. I gota job but when u write the order u gonna have a long line of people who look just like you baby.


    @Jayhawk- is this this most ignorant group of jr high drops you have ever seen? Potato chips stuck to their ass. Can't type for shit. Anyone that thinks the USA has friends at the moment are intoxicated. You people ramble on, pull numbers out your ass and don't have a clue as to what your talking. Have you ever had a job? You should thank Romney because if it was me I would " break your plate" on all of you! I would give u 24 hours to find a job!
