The problem was that even before this comment, Romney was considered a candidate for the rich. This comment verified voters suspicions.
I don't mean actual campaign ads, I mean the news media reporting and repeating over and over again, most likely at the specific request of the DNC. Do you understand that the networks are in bed with the Democrat Party?

Again, if it was fine on its own, then voters would just get annoyed at the TV networks.

Also, while progressives have more TV-networks, conservative TV-networks have more viewers.

You can keep your insults directed at me to yourself also. If you think that only so-called right wingers are fed up with those who can work but don't and are on the government teet then you're not dealing in reality. If these lazy people felt insulted then they need to do a reality check on themselves.
Lazy people who can work but won't don't add up to anywhere near 47%. The only way you get to anywhere approaching that number is if you include people who do work but make very little (i.e. minimum wage workers) and senior citizens. If he didn't mean to insult those people, why did he include them?

Romneycare became Obamacare.
Both wanted our continued involvement in the Middle East even though it makes us less safe and there is nothing in the Constitution that allows it.
Both are for their own bailouts.
Neither was a proponent for states rights and less government.
Both go back on their word often enough.
The only difference was the hand picked winners and losers they wanted to help with tax payer money.

Again how is he different than Obama?

Having the MSM on your side is also a big boon, remember Candy Crowley bailing Obama out at the second debate?
Not true at all. Most of us knew that Romney was no conservative and just pretending to be one in order to get the nomination. If he had become president who knows what he would have done. He could have gone liberal for all we know lol And that's why he wasn't elected. So you can stop blaming it on these so called spoiled brats

Sounds like the perfect candidate. Lost to Obama by a decent margin.

Obama:
  • Not even eligible to be president (fraudelent birth certificate).
  • Former pothead, cokehead.
  • No meaningful experience.

Bush Jr:
  • Former alcoholic, cokehead, overall party animal.
  • Had no idea what he was doing (and mostly admitted it).

Bill Clinton:
  • Former and current cokehead, drug smuggler, party animal.
  • More time spent soliciting sexual favors from interns than doing presidential duties.
  • Had orgies with enslaved teenage women in Central America.

Oh yea, and we're about to give the presidency to the trecherous wife of one of the above guys.

Agreed-

The fact that Obama won the 2012 election shows that the electorate has vacated any sense of reasoning or rationality. One could understand the "hope and change" hype of the 2008 election, anger toward Bush, and a poor opponant in McCain. But 2012..............................???

We had (and have) the worst POTUS in US history and we WON the election in 2012.

The simple fact that Obama won in 2012 shows that the electorate does not give a lick about the nation or a competent leader, but is more interested in anyone who promises the most treats.

If you really have to ask, you're one of the ones we can thank for being stuck with O-messiah.
