The question in the mind of Democrats and those who want to see president Obama reelected was: Will Obama mention Romney’s 47% quote? Will he go there? Democrats wanted to hear Obama talk about it. Well, he did! And it was another big lie by Romney that prompted Obama’s answer. Romney, trying to appear compassionate and caring, said, without being asked about it, that he “cares about the 100%”. What a moron! He dug his grave for the night!
Romney’s words from that secret video need to be repeated and people need to be reminded that it occurred during a campaign fundraiser with wealthy donors. People should not confuse Romney for someone who cares for all. He doesn’t:
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent 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.
Yes, Romney gave Obama an opening and Obama took it, with his last words!
In his closing statement, Obama started by clarifying that he doesn’t believe that it is the government’s task to create jobs. He stated that he believes in capitalism, that risk takers should be rewarded. But that he also believes in everyone getting a fair shot. That that is what is at stake in this election. Obama called Romney a good man, who cares about his family, cares about his faith, but that behind closed doors Romney said 47% of Americans will not take responsibility. Obama reminded who these 47% are: the elderly, soldiers, working parents.
In the CNN post debate poll, a majority said that Obama was more likeable than Romney but that he spend more time attacking his opponent. How can he be “likable” and an “attacker”? Because Romney made it easy for Obama to counter his lies, and this time Obama was not passive, he took every opportunity possible to defend himself and point out Romney’s lies.
