Mitt Romney Slammed For Being Honest?

It never ceases to amaze me how the liberal media blows things out of proportion.  The press covered the story of Mitt Romney and his comments concerning the election in a fashion, that one would think he had murdered someone.  The media requires “Big” headlines, so it blows everything out of proportion.  But in truth, all Mitt Romney did was lay out the political reality of the campaign.  He was perfectly correct in his assessment that those not paying Federal income tax and collecting food stamps are less likely to vote for him than the President.  What he actually said was, “There are 47% who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing.”  In 2012, a Presidential candidate is slammed for telling the truth, albeit a harsh truth.  We have become so polarized in this country that campaigns are more about catching someone in error or breaking a story, than listening to the message.  Romney should have absolutely been move discrete about his comments but what he said was not untrue and that’s all that should matter.  So in case there are people out there who didn’t like the message coming form the Republican candidate, I will reiterate it.  Fact: Forty-Seven Percent of the citizens living in the United States of America pay NO Federal Income Tax.  His assessment was quite on the mark.  Fact: neither of these candidates will win greater than fifty-two percent of the popular vote.  In the 2008 campaign, forty-seven percent of the country voted for John McCain and this election promises to be even closer.  What it comes down to, is those that support Romney for President will continue to support him and those that support Obama will continue to do so.  Very few people will be swing voters in this election and therefore this issue will no longer matter come election day.
