Listen. Politics is politics. People's lives are people's lives. I too think it is disgusting and in poor taste to emphasize the one, at the cost of the other.
Many currently are questioning the FBI and CIA's potential lack of due diligence on the terrorist warnings we had on the Boston Bombing brothers...could ...more
I wonder how many people writing in, anti college, actually went to college. College was much more of a life lesson than a guarantee of a certain income bracket. I'd say the nay Sayers never went to school.

The 47% reference was the 47% of Americans who DO NOT pay taxes.
I have watched the video several times, and what I find to be most distorted in the media and liberal protrayal of it, is his CONTEXT. While he indeed said those words, the context of those words was "campaign strategy". From a strategic standpoint, he knows that a certain percentage of voters simply won't vote for h...more
