If Mitt Romney is so proud of his 47% message why hasn’t he talked this way on the stump?

All day long I have heard the pundits debate the merits of Mitt Romney’s 47% argument. I was just listening to CNN Mary Matlin cheer Romney on and say she is glad he said it, but it struck me that Romney did not simply step up to the microphone and share these sentiments. This meetings of millionaires event took place in May and we are not hearing about it until September, and that is only after a secretly recorded tape was released. (Thank You James Earl Carter V) Now usually a politician is not shy about telling you what they think so why did this have to come out like this? Share your thoughts.

    My money is on Romney winning the presidency despite those that are still being hoodwinked by Obama/Biden rhetoric.

    Romney is in a rather precarious position when he talks about who pays taxes. Could he be among those who don’t pay? How can we know, since he refuses to reveal how much he has paid in the last few years.
    Is Romney among that 47% who pay little or no taxes?

    That is a fair question. Now my question to you is why won’t the president be open and honest about his socialist wealth redistribution ideology? Don’t expect to see this in the mainstream media.

    My goodness. A politician said something he believed behind closed doors that he won’t say on the stump. (Update: It seems a “minute or two” of additional information that puts this into perspective “might” have been cut from the recording. Quelle suprise!”) You’d think that only politicians, and only CONSERVATIVE politicians, did this according to the way the media is handling this. Apparently everyone else in the whole wide world speaks their minds candidly and openly 24/7. The president has demonstrated that he expects the black vote to turn out for him on election day regardless of hoe he’d treated their concerns. His ACTIONS speak louder than any of his words, but because he hasn’t been caught on tape with a secret or “hot” mike nobody’s calling him on it.

    Let’s gauge Mr. Romney by his actions, not his illicitly-stolen words spoken in private. And lets judge the president by his performance over his first term and by his actions.

      Really Elogam, Mitt’s stolen words—give me a break. He was not at his house. He was at a political fundraiser among like-minded people. He forgot the help were also in attendance and they exposed the real Mitt.

        Clearly, Mitt is going to win the presidency imo.
