Romney's Unintended Profundity

Romney Quote:
“There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That, that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what … These are people who pay no income tax."

Later in that speech, Romney claimed 47% of Americans pay no income tax.  It appears Romney exaggerated the facts.  It's 46% percent who pay no taxes!

Nevertheless, liberals will undoubtedly try to use these comments against Romney.  At least they'll be telling the truth this time.  Truth in not just the quote itself, but truth in the essence of the quote.  Personally, I hope the Obama campaign plays that quote incessantly.  Maybe the remaining 53% will wake up and realize how bad they're being screwed by the Government looters and the addicted moocher citizen class.

I received this in email this morning and found it quite profound:

If someone asks you what the main difference is between most Obama supporters and Romney supporters, just tell them that:

Romney supporters sign their checks on the front.
Obama supporters sign their checks on the back.
