Romney is also madly rolling back his 47 percenter remark, deciding days into the controversy — after stout defense by his own campaign and supporters — that he was "just completely wrong." Sounds like he'd crafted this sound bite for the debate and President Obama wisely didn't give him the opening. The soundbite would have lived, whilethe continuing dishonesty would have been masked.
You tell me. Was Romney telling the truth when he spoke privately to a $50,000-a-head dinner filled with rich white men like himself? Or was he telling the truth when he crafted a line to shore up eroding swing voter support widely repulsed by the glimpse of the real Mitt Romney?
Read some mail from Romney supporters. They LOVE the moocher line. And they can't wait to cut the moochers off the dole of federal benefits. The sad and awful paradox are the Republican voters who are on the dole themselves and apparently don't understand what their intentions mean to themselves — such as the devoted Republican voter who turned up at a Koch bus tour in Paragould the other day. He qualifies for food stamps, Medicaid, the earned income tax credit and child care deductions for his four children. He has a state job for its good benefits — holidays, insurance, pension. He decried government spending and said, in light of it, he could never vote for a Democrat. I kid you not.
