I don't have a problem with what Romney said. If anything the poor have TOO MANY safety nets. What is harder, sitting back and collecting gobs of benefits (welfare, food stamps, housing, cell phones, too many to list) or getting your butt up and going to work everyday?
Anyways if Obama cares about the poor it apparently isn't how you think he cares. It would appear by the numbers Obama wants more people to be poor, and therefore dependent on the govt.
Measured by total numbers, the 46 million now living in poverty is the largest on record dating back to when the census began tracking poverty in 1959. Based on percentages, it tied the poverty level in 1993 and was the highest since 1983.

Looks like more of the same old autocrats, telling the populace to eat cake
having something doesn't automatically mean you are evil.
it's your personal view of the value and rights of others, that's on trial here. doesn't matter what your financial, racial or religious status is, in the usa, if you are not treated as equally valuable, but instead are held to some invisible fleeting notion of "forgiveness of past sins" that never seems to materialize, you are gonna be upshiets creek without a paddle. this is what i keep trying to tell anonymous supporters. saying WE DON'T FORGET WE DON'T FORGIVE is the entire problem in a nutshell.

Oh please. I have no idea? really?? you don't even know me so don't make this personal about me. It's about THEM. Don't even get me started on Romney's dog on the roof of his car. I would never vote for him just based on THAT! And by the way, we are each entitled to our own opinions on this site, attacking another poster personally is a violation of terms of agreement. Stick to the topic.
correct, you are clueless on this topic. haven't you figured out yet that isn't about how much money someone else has, it's about how you treat other people? it's about the value you give to other human beings. if your value system is contingent on racial and financial status, then expect them to give it right back to you on a platter.

Yes I agree with you 100% The middle class is who needs the help and what he said. was right people will just find anything to rant about. The poor have all kinds of things they send thier children to school in name brand clothes and shoes, while buying thier food with food stamps. The middle class is struggling to survive.and put food on the table while the poor are using the middle classes hard earned tax dollars to feed and cloth thier children that they keep having even though they can't afford them! The rich do not need any help. the poor get all kinds of money,health insurance,free housing in the gettho projects. The middle class are becoming poor and needing handouts the middle class needs help and I will be voting for mitt in the primary here in MO. on feb.7th! get mad I DON'T CARE! Newt, keeps getting endorsements from the rich you know whose side he will be on if he gets elected!
