Certainly going to sting.

:D

Well deserved too.

"This is not a random gaffe, a joke gone bad, or even a terrible brain freeze. It is Romney exposed for espousing a worldview that is at the heart of his party’s mania. The idea he summed up at that fund-raiser was a combination of right-wing fever dreams ...the Ayn Randism, the fact-free class warfare, the frantic rage at a changing America. The Republican Party is going down because its candidate was seen advocating exactly the beliefs that make the party so dangerous and repellant."

He shot his mouth off and committed political suicide. Sweet poetic justice.

Thanks for your efforts in this election babb. The limited abilities and profound lack of understanding of America you and people like you brought to the table helped bring this victory about in ways you will clearly never understand.

Perhaps you can take solace in the the myriad of imagined ways that you think you have "made it", giving you someone to look down upon.

Yeah, he just didn't mention it was HIS "47%" he was totaling. The greedy needy-rich he was showering with "gifts", tax breaks, loopholes, expanded military spending the Pentagon didn't want... shower, shower, shower.

It's great isn't it. And as the days go by it becomes clearer still what a little man Mittens is.

Romney voters will never take personal responsibility for their lives.

You are saying that a whopping 47% of Americans will never take responsibility for their lives?  ???

Who would say such a thing and expect to be taken seriously by any one other than FOX News listeners?

True, many of them are takers indeed -- as are many Obama supporters as well.   :;):

We've been a rich nation for three generations now.  Not surprising at all that we are collectively spoiled, meaning we are prone to:

1.  expect more
2.  contribute less
3.  pointing fingers at "others" for being worse
