What's wrong is the left thinking this is the winning issue. It just isn't that big, and actually scores points on some levels for Romney.


Agree. IMO, I think this is the reason we didn't hear Obama bring it up in the debate. They polled it with independent voters in swing states and I would be willing to bet the majority of those voters agree with Romney's statement.

Seems Romney is ok with the 53%, I figure if it ok for O to try to have the 47 hate the 53, it's fair the other way around.

Then why would Romney come out and declare himself "completely wrong" with that statement, especially since a majority of voters agree with it?

There are two more debates. Don't think it won't be brought up.

Because it IS completely wrong, Boo. There is probably 5-7% of that 47% who are potential Romney voters. They are the ones who've been "buried" by the Obama economy, and are currently out of work and on government subsidization (unemployment, stamps, etc.). It is this group that Romney must make amends too; book it...they aren't slackers and want to get back to work. And it WON'T HAPPEN if Obama stays in.

Hell, I can remember Obama's remarks to the oil field workers when he shut the Gulf down, AGAINST THE ADVICE of his own experts. Obama told them to "get on unemployment" .

IMO, Obama shouldn't only be defeated...he should deported.

A nationally televised Presidential debate is a lot different than a statement issued by the campaign. Obama gets nothing from bringing it up in the debate. Sadly, the 47% most likely aren't watching the debates.

Unlike his opponent, Romney is capable of admitting that he was wrong and moving on. I find it pretty refreshing.

Your right. It's the same with tax returns and Bain Capital. Besides, who here thinks Romney wouldn't have been ready if Obama did bring it up?

So, you admit he was wrong.
Only took him 3 weeks to figure that out, huh?
His stupid, judgmental, hypocritical remark is hurting him, so, as always, Willard is chasing his tail.

Well, Romney evidently concluded it was a winning issue too.
