If Romneys campaign does not withdraw its bid for presidency and close up shop ( and who thinks that is going happen ), then mark my words, we will see the best damn election money can buy. Indeed, we may very well be looking at the best damn puppet money can buy too.
Far too many in this country have far too much disdain for the H.N.I.C. to even consider the egregiousness of Romney's comment. Similarly, far too many are equally unwilling to consider the possibility that some of what Romney said is indeed true, even if "the numbers don't add up" (haven't we heard that somewhere else????? ).
In one respect, lets consider the following statement "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives". One would be absolutely lying to themselves if one were to think that there is not a measurable percentage of Americans who perfectly fit this statement. Is that percentage as high as 47%? More than likely not, but I would be more than willing to bet it is indeed a double digit percentage.
On the other side of the coin is the following statement: "These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax.". Again, absolutely true. Is this percentage as high as 47%? Probably. ESPECIALLY true (and probably higher) when considers (as has been stated in the noted seed) that many corporations do not pay income tax. Corporations Are People, my friend!
A thought had occurred to me a few times these past few weeks. It would be absolutely interesting to watch the unfolding events if it were in fact proven that Mr Romney did NOT pay any income taxes during the past 10 years. Fodder like that can only occur in real life.
Either way, this show is far from over. Karl Rove and the Kochs (among others) have too many checks outstanding and they will ensure they collect on them.
