EDSHOW who are the 47 per cent
What an unexpected series of events happening to nominee Mitt Romney. The news is full of commentary on the disarray in his campaign while he heaps praise on his top advisers. Mitt hid from the main stream media (except for Fox News) during the primaries. Now with just a few weeks before we vote, a secret video has been released showing Mitt Romney unguarded and revealing his true character. In the video we see the would-be super millionaire president candidly chatting with fellow millionaires about many issues which are germane to the presidency. We see Mitt Romney without his clothes on. Sorry, Ann Romney, we now have the evidence that supports the people’s cry for more of your tax returns. You required 10 years of tax returns from Paul Ryan, but, hide your returns giving us only 1 full return. This is a cause for alarm. What could you and Mitt be hiding? You said, “If you only you knew how charitable Mitt is.” After viewing the “secret video” I wonder if Mitt’s charity is more about tax deductions and loopholes, than Mitt’s wish to live his life as Jesus would. Jesus would not live a life of excess. Jesus would be humble as opposed to Mitt’s arrogant attitude toward “47 per cent of the American people.” Jesus would not have a house with an elevator for His cars. (IMHO) Look up the word “elite” in the dictionary and you might see Mitt Romney’s picture!
It used to be said that Romney and Ryan had no foreign policy background for the jobs they seek. The “secret video” shows that when it comes to foreign policy, Mitt Romney is dangerous. As president he would not be the leader he talks about on the stump. Mitt Romney would let geo-political problems be “pushed down the road” or left to play out their fate. He would not be the leader he protests he would be. As I listened to Mitt speak, I seemed to be hearing the things rich Republicans say in their “Quiet Rooms” where discuss and decide the fate of us mere mortals. The “secret video” has peeled back the veneer on Mitt Romney’s public face and showed us his character, his true nature and his limitations as a candidate for President of the United States. I venture to say that more than 47% of Americans are now convinced that it would not be wise to vote for Mitt Romney, be they Democrats or Republicans. Many conservative voices decry the GOP candidate at a time when we should have decided in our choice for president. How can Mitt Romney go on with only Reince Priebus supporting him? Women, Latinos, blacks, veterans, armed forces, seniors, the elderly and infirm now see that there is only one choice on November 6, 2012: PULL THE LEVER UNDER DEMOCRAT THAT SAYS “Barack H. Obama.” God bless us one and all! —GoodOleWoody

On Monday and Tuesday Mother Jones published exclusive video that captured Mitt Romney speaking to donors at a May 17 fundraiser, which was held at the home of private equity mogul Mark Leder. Responding to a question about the “Palestinian problem,” Romney saidpeace in the Middle East is not possible and a Palestinian state is not feasible, telling donors that Palestinians have “no interest whatsoever in establishing peace and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.” At another point, the GOP presidential nominee told attendees of this $50,000-a-plate dinner that 47 percent of Americans—those who back President Obama—are “victims” who are “dependent upon government” and “pay no income tax.” He noted: “My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” These comments set off a media firestorm and generated headlines around the world.

“Washington, Sep 18 — With just 50 days to go for what is expected to be a close presidential race, President Barack Obama played the China card against his Republican challenger Mitt Romney with another outsourcing jab.
“I like to walk the walk, not just talk the talk,” said Obama Monday at a campaign event in Cincinnati, Ohio, a crucial swing state, announcing his administration’s new trade enforcement case against China in the World Trade Organisation.
Obama’s re-election campaign also released a new television ad criticising Romney for opposing his tough stance on China while renewing Obama’s charge that as head of investment firm Bain Capital, Romney was an “outsourcing pioneer” who shipped American jobs to countries like India and China.
“You can’t stand up to China when all you’ve done is sent them our jobs. You can talk a good game, but I like to walk the walk, not just talk the talk,” Obama said.
“And my experience has been waking up every single day and doing everything I can to make sure American workers get a fair shot in the global economy.”
“We don’t need folks who during election time suddenly are worrying about trade practices, but before the election are taking advantage of unfair trading practices,” Obama says.”
