tyler, tx — So late last night, tongues on the left side of the political fence started wagging.
Someone at a Mitt Romney fundraiser sneaked some video of him speaking off the cuff a few months ago. It was at a (gasp) rich person's house during a fundraiser. By the way, you normally fund-raise with rich people.
The president will be at an $800 a bottle champagne fundraiser in New York City. But for the press, that's ok. Everyone buys $800 bottle champagne.
Libs think they have a smoking gun. They think they have "the secret Romney tapes." On the tape, a donor asked Romney why he didn't attack President Obama harder on his record.
Romney said what anyone who follows politics does. He was after the squishy middle. My words not his.
He said there was 47% of the voting public who would never vote for him. So, why bother?
This is almost like what General McArthur did in World War II with island hopping. Why beat your head against the wall? Find another way to the target.
It's ways been like this in politics. There is a certain amount on the right and left that would vote for a goat if the party nominated it. Somehow this is seen as a big news event.
I've discussed the 47% right here on the POV.
Almost 50% of the nation pays no income taxes. And a lot of those folks are happy with the gimmies. But the mainstream media will do anything but talk about our lousy economy, our high gas prices and lack of foreign policy.
Listen to me closely. I have some scoop for you.
THERE'S NO NEWS HERE!!!!!
That's my point of view, what's yours?
