    After the 47% remark telling Americans what he actually thinks of them and him being bitter and a poor sport like a little kid I don't see much future him.Oh, wait a minute, I forgot, they are republicans, he will blend in just fine.

    What was wrong with the 47% remark? The only problem with him saying it was he was correct. 47% of this country would never vote for a Republican...ever...no matter what. That is why he said. So I ask again, what is wrong with what he said?

    @RobertJHarsh "Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax," Romney said, and that his role "is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

    More than 16 million elderly and disabled Americans avoid federal income taxes because of tax breaks that apply only to seniors, Millions of others don't pay federal income taxes because they don't earn enough after deductions and exemptions, and you don't see whats wrong with that? His role "is not to worry about those people,really now, what planet are you from? Oh I forgot you are from planet GOP world, were they only worry about the rich and the corporations, and poor, disabled and elderly are left in the cold with no human rights and are thought of as as a burden on superior people like your self and King Mitt .

    @Raptor Why should he worry about them? They won't vote for him or any Republican. I still see Romney's argument as valid. You do how elections and voting works, right?

    @RobertJHarsh Because it made him a thoughtless man who did not care for the citizens that fell into that 47%. An elected official represents ALL of his/her constituents not just those that voted for him/her.

    @Granny_Grey You're standing in the WRONG America by friend. I can assure you, Obama could care less about anyone who did not vote for him.

    Bet he'll visit the Caymen's just to sayHi to his $'ss

    American corporations are holding a lot of (their shareholders') cash "outside of the country." (But not really outside.) HOW much money are we talking about? Approximately $1.2 trillion as of last March. This is money these companies have made in international profits, owed to their shareholders or potentially used for investment in US jobs, facilities and equipment. But they won't bring the money back to the US because they would have to pay taxes if they did. Instead they are holding it "outside of the country" and pushing for "reform" -- meaning let them out of their tax bill. If this $1.2 trillion were repatriated and taxed at the full corporate tax rate of 35% this would bring an additional $420 billion to the treasury for We, the People to use to rebuild our infrastructure, etc.
    A variety of Bain funds in the Romneys’ portfolio have controlling stakes in foreign companies. Had those funds been set up in the United States, the Romneys and other American investors would probably have been subject to certain federal taxes for their ownership of “controlled foreign corporations.” Setting up the funds in the Caymans allowed them to avoid those taxes.

    Romney has become the global poster child for a family of wealthy losers. Tagg is chomping at the bit for his turn but Romney wants to make sure the temperature is just right so that ha can lose really big!

    if you truly believe that the total of those 47% that don't pay any taxes are only democratic voters, you really aren't up for serious debate on the issues of the day, are you? Sad that you are so easily manipulated by smooth talkers...

    wanna buy a bridge in Brooklyn?

    @woodtick57 wow! Did you say believing "smooth talkers"?! You've got to be kidding me !you have the "king" of smooth talkers, or smooth liars! There is no debating a liberal, they think they know what's best for all of us, and if you happen to have an opinion other than theirs, you're a stupid , redneck, racist , that hates poor people, you preach tolerance , but that don't apply if you go against the left ! Keep watching the "Obama news machine" to get you're facts !

    @Ttenneb

    so ...that would be a "nothing" in response to a serious question? Guess we know where you lie on the cuckoo spectrum....

    @Fishbone345 so you're saying 47% that are getting a government check are from the south,well most of them,what difference does that make in the first place,and you're gonna tell me that most of them voted republican? I'm not talkin about the people who had a job and lost it, I'm talkin about the people who get a check just because they don't want to work

    Mitt will help the Republican Party stay as irrelevant tomorrow as it is today. I think that it's a good idea to keep the clueless in charge.

    Romney is far too conservative for fox news. they only want the views of the radical right wing.

    Sonservative is to fox news as communism is to moderate Americans

    @NormalFlora That's not fair. She was hired for TWO reasons: FOX chief Roger Ailes was blunt about why she was on-air. "I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings."

    I am reminded of Mitt's remark that he was not a career politician during the Republican primary, and Newt Gingrich's snappy reply that Mitt had been running for public office for 15 years, and the only reason he wasn't a career politician is that he could get anyone to elect him.

    Not at all. He's definitely had successes and is a valuable asset to certain people or causes. However, his track-record of flipflopping on issues depending on the election really resonates too much with most people.

    How can 33% of you possibly come to any conclusion that Romney will help the GOP?
    Didn't he just lose? Maybe the residents of Kolab will support him ( if they are wearing the right underwear)

    Did I say he'll help the Republicans? Maybe they think so. Hope he campaigns long and hard for every R candidate next year!

    What's the problem? Having run for President, he's in a unique position to advise others on what to expect and how to avoid some of the same mistakes he made. He could contribute to fundraising or ideas. Information is king.
