President Obama Visits Late Show, Weighs in on Mitt Romney "47 Percent" Controversy

by at . Comments

President Barack Obama stopped by the Late Show With David Letterman last night, and had barely sat down before being asked about the Mitt Romney video.

The secretly-recorded-calling-Obama-backers-entitled-irresponsible-drains-on-society video, which Romney stands by, while acknowledging poor word choice.

Letterman asked Obama for his take on Mitt describing "47 percent of Americans" in this manner, to which he said, "One of the things I learned as president is you represent the entire country ... if you want to be president, you have to work for everyone."

Obama noted that in 2008, 47 percent of America voted for his rival, John McCain.

"This is a big country. And people disagree a lot, but one thing I've never tried to do and I think none of us can do in public office is suggest that because somebody doesn't agree with me that they're victims or they're unpatriotic," he said.

"There are not a lot of people out there who think they're victims. There are not a lot of people who think they're entitled to something."

"We've got some obligations to each other, and there's nothing wrong with us giving each other a helping hand so that that single mom's kid, after all the work she's done ... can afford to go to college, go cure the next disease, go start the next Google."

"I think that's a good investment for America."

@Daina- it's sounds to me like the troll WVP has her panties in a bunch? Eh? Such an Obama trooper she was, but now all she can hold onto is women's rights? My o my how far we have dropped! It's Hard for her Daina. When you are free falling stuck to a lead balloon it nightmarish at best. One liberal lie after another, I mean really, WHAT'S A GIRL TOO DO? It's hard for one Administration to keep up with all those lies and the only people that can sympathize with them are Liars themselves! Their credibility is shot! The middle east is in disarray and that was where obama had so much pride! Hilliary looks like she just stopped crying each time I see her!
What an embarrassment this must be for the ""Obama Cult"

@ WV Peach. You won't see this but just in case I'll be a b#### if you keep your promise and stay away. Don't try to excuse your presence by telling us what you were initially talking about. We don't care. You couldn't be my mother. I'm 100% pure and you know what you are. Go back to that coal mine you're so fond of. Good riddance!
