Bill Clinton slammed the elderly and low-income people?
What? Did Clinton go behind the scene to a group of rich folks saying 47% of America is just desperate moochers?

Unemployed loser?

You must be talking about yourself as Romney certainly doesn't need unemployment and I would say he is far from a loser after all he has accomplished in his life.

Sure, he lost the election, but he fought the good fight directly taking on such liars as Obama and Candy Crowley at the same time.

As for the 47%? He was right and those are your losers which has nothing to do with going through hard times but more to do with the ungrateful and arrogant attitude that somehow I and every other taxpayer owe them something - that is offensive. Economically speaking Obama himself has not been much of a friend to the 47% either, perhaps they should have embraced Romney and his pro Business policies.

I do have issues with Romney but those issues are more closely related to his version of Obamacare and support for foreign wars.

If there are losers I have problems with in the GOP that would be more like that pig with his nose up Obama's butt, Chris something or that general who calls himself a Republican yet is crowding Christie for his spot sucking Obama's di- di- directives up like manna while shooting other Republicans in the foot. How about Jindal, you can have that a$$hole loser too.

But Romney, nah, I have issues with him but I like him and would certainly be honored to have him visit my home. Something I wouldn't let the Class Warrior in Chief or the Philanderer in Chief near.

Does it concern you that Romney was just trolling you

Remember kids:
When the rich pay no income tax, that's GOOD.
When the poor and middle class pay no income tax, that's BAD.
Got it? O.K.!

I think at this point, Romney is just shaking down the GOP. I can't imagine any candidate in a competitive election that would desire his endorsement or presence. I'm sure he has his price for "going away". Then he'll quietly disappear, just like G.W. Bush, G.H.W Bush, Dick Cheney, and Dan Quayle (at least these guys won their elections!)

You're really not interested in debating the issue are you?

In Clinton's final year, the number of non-payers was 25%. So w/ Clinton tax policies, it was considered reasonable that only about one in four tax filers be exempt from paying any federal income tax. By 2012, that number had almost doubled to 47%, which Romney viewed as untenable. And which you in turn say was a slam on the poor and elderly. So by logic 101 you must also regard Clinton as having slammed the poor and elderly, right?

BTW where did Romney ever say that "47% of America is [sic] just desperate moochers?" He never said that. Link? Quote?

All that has changed is that the baby boomers got old enough to retire. More old people in the population means more people on social security. It's not rocket science.

So 3 months ago Romney was a rich, elite corporate master and now he's an unemployed loser?

It's no wonder why you guys are called the "loony left".
