Pretty sickening...I don't recall America as ever being full of these reptiles.
Another part of the 47% is retired seniors. There are 52 Million seniors on Social Security. Fully 42% of them exist on Social Security as their primary source of income. They pay no taxes. Most of them worked and paid taxes for 50 years or more. These are part of the deadbeat culture Romney was talking about.

Perfect example of an uninformed statement from an uninformed Romney voter. No doubt, you were given that piece of wisdom by Bullsh*t Mountain News.

Too bad for Mittens he got support from 47%, just not the 47% he was talking about. His 47% was largely, angry old white men.

Huh, well who would of thought, there really is a God. I was hoping and praying that Romney would get 47% of the vote so we could all enjoy that irony.

It looks like this is going to become a reality.

When all the votes are counted, could Mitt Romney really end up achieving perfect poetic justice by finishing with 47 percent of the national vote? Yup. Dave Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report says new votes in from Maryland put Romney at 47.56 percent. He predicts with certainty that with all of New York and California counted, Romney will end up below 47.5 percent of the vote.

Rounded, of course, that would put the final tally at 51-47.


Poetic justice: Romney likely to finish at 47 percent - The Plum Line - The Washington Post

And when all is said and done, it will be Obama by about 4 million votes.
