    Newspapers, blogs, and commentators across the country are slamming Romney’s comments, on which he doubled down at a press conference last night. Here is but a small sample:

    · David Brooks on why Romney “doesn’t know much about the country he inhabits” and why his comments reinforce “every negative view people have about Romney”: http://nyti.ms/SxJX5s

    · Bloomberg News on Romney’s “utter disaster”: http://bloom.bg/Po3XZA

    · Josh Marshall says Romney’s comments are “absolutely devastating”: http://bit.ly/U90x1g

    · Joan Waslsh says Romney has insulted half the country: http://bit.ly/RqgWs8

    Romney’s dismissal of 47% of the country reveals a startling degree of ignorance as to who these people are.

    · The vast majority of these Americans pay a significant percentage of their income in taxes – whether they are federal payroll taxes, property taxes, sales taxes or other state and local taxes. They often pay even a higher share of their income in these taxes than wealthier families, like Mitt Romney’s.

    · Well over half – 61 percent – are workers who actually pay federal payroll taxes, which can include military families, cops, firefighters, or teachers. In 2011, these families included nearly 20 million seniors, more than half of all seniors in America – Matthew Yglesias breaks it down: http://slate.me/UhBfti

    · ThinkProgress on “what Romney won’t tell you about the 47%”: http://bit.ly/Rqgytx

    · It’s no wonder the Washington Post’s fact checker gave Romney’s remarks “Three Pinocchios”: http://wapo.st/PwpgYI

    I can’t stop laughing at Mitt. Every time he opens his mouth, he puts his foot, shoe, hat, and kitchen sink in it. ROFL! Keep talking Mitt, don’t stop.
    Let’s see, insults foreign countries, insults allies, insults we the people. Yep, he’s a true far-right Republican.
    Mitt = a male Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann combined.

    President Obama and Vice President Biden 2012!!!!

    WaPo rips to shreds the notion that “47 percent” do not pay taxes. Here’s the actual breakdown: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/wp/2012/09/17/romney-my-job-is-not-to-worry-about-those-people/?hpid=z2

      ALL.OF.THIS.

      Romney is probably all the bad things said about him and more. But what about the media that don’t even mention the logical fallacy behind his opinion, whey they’re smart enough to know better? So Obama has a lock on 47% of the vote total?

      And 47% of the population don’t pay taxes? Therefore the 47% voting for Obama are all non-taxpayers!!!
      What about wealthy women voting for Obama because they prefer his stand on women’s issues? Or wealthy gays who prefer his stand on gay marriage?

      Or wealthy Hispanics who support his stand on immigration?

      And what about the poor, non-taxpaying white men who are voting for Romney because concerns about race trump economic self-interest?

      Or poor non-taxpaying evangelicals who support Romney because they basically want to abolish the separation between church and state?

      Why aren’t the media any more nuanced than Romney in discussing the inaccurate and silly way he’s divided up the electorate?…”

    Basically, Mitt Romney stands by what he says and that means that unless you are in the 1%, are a racist bigoted tool, and don’t believe in the role of government, even when you mooch, and tax dodge, you aren’t worth the air you breathe to him.

    Somehow, Romney is sounding like he wants to raise taxes on everyone. Not sure that’s what he wants voters to think…right?
