    What he actually said was that there was a section of the electorate that was not going to vote for him no matter what and that he couldn't waste resources trying to get their vote. Of course it was spun that he didn't care about those people, but much of his personal history would indicate that he might actually care about his fellow man. If you want to know what I'm referencing, look up his charitable donations, and his other personal good works.

    Maybe he should have "wasted a few resources" to make "those people" understand that he really was looking out for them. Make your comments in public, not at some fundraiser of very wealthy donors, and then try to crawfish out of what he said. Face it, he was/is out of touch with the common working class people in the country and they don't trust him.

    What does Obama have in common with the middle class working man? Obama ran on the fact that he would only raise taxes on those making over 250K, but now everyone will pay the price. Thats something he knew all along, never once while he was running did he say, if we dont get the fiscal cliff issue resolved middle class taxes will be going up, in fact at the debate his words were "the fiscal cliff wont happen". So he can skip his $40K Xmas trip to Hawaii, stay here and come up with a solution.

    Murral, HPL explained what he said ... but the opposition and the MSM continued to hammer on their own interpretation.

    There is far more in Romney's work history to indicate that he is probably more in touch with working class people than Obama will ever be or ever has been.

    I can agree that Romney was not effective in getting that message to the electorate.

    You might say that the 47% voted as anticipated; and another 3% of the electorate voted for the belief that they should support re-distribution of wealth because it was the right thing to do or because they have special interests that will stand to profit from the expansion of govt. It's no secret that some socialists and some communists are taxpayers. Some of them are actually quite wealthy ... just look at how many of them are in Obama's cabinet posts or czars on his staff.
