corysblog says: I really don’t see anything non-factual about this video. Everyone paying attention knows that the country’s vote is split pretty much half and half, but was Romney wrong for stating that fact? Isn’t it true that 47 percent of Americans people don’t pay income taxes and are more inclined vote for the President? If this video sinks Romney’s chance at the Presidency it will be because of the spin placed on it and not the actual content.
» Dave Weigel says: ”Romney is conflating the people who pay no net income tax with the people so dependent on government aid that they have to vote for Obama. But these aren’t the same people! Most of the ‘lucky duckies,’ to use the classic WSJ term, are old people who subsist on Social Security. Elderly voters broke big for Republicans in 2010. Scores of poor whites who benefit from the Earned Income Tax Credit vote for Republicans.” — Ernie @ SFB
