Video Killed The Romney Star

Oh boy. Romney's poor campaign staff. They are probably just drunk in sad resignation right now. Today was a rough day for them. First, a video was exposed from a May campaign fundraising event in which Romney says that 47% of the country are pathetic freeloaders "dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it." Now is he assuming that 53% of people won't be insulted by that statement? He maybe should have aimed for less of a margin of error in his divide. Maybe just alienated only a third of the voting country? 
Well anyway, just as I was popping antacids from digesting that unsavory nugget, yet ANOTHER video busted out launched by the Romney campaign. This one is an ad entitled "Dear Daughter" and it's aimed at the lady vote. As I see it, no self-respecting woman could vote for Romney. He wants to block access to critical health care services, including reproductive and family planning services and he doesn't support equal pay. And am I sniffing glue, or did we just find out via that secret video that he doesn't even give a poo in the john about half the population, so how am I to reconcile that he is talking to unemployed, struggling women with any sort of compassion.
The 47% video alone caused many pundits and political writers to say that he just lost the election.  Josh Barro at Bloomberg wrote that the leaked video "has killed Mitt Romney's campaign for president," explaining, "Romney already has trouble relating to the public and convincing people he cares about them. Now, he's been caught on video saying that nearly half the country consists of hopeless losers."
I agree. I think the only hopeless loser here is Romney.
You can support Romney by trying to wipe up some of the crap.
