Liberals question Obama’s decision not to mention Romney’s ‘47 percent’ remarks

Why no mention? Maybe he’s saving it for the next debate:

Or maybe he’s saving it for something else:

  • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

    I would have commented on what Romney meant by “47%” but people in this site have the basic knowledge of electoral terms to understand that remark so… this 47% of VOTERS are idiots

  • nc

    Why Why Why? Waaaahhhh Waaaaahhhhh Waaaaaahhhhhh!!!!

  • Kent Vig

    Because Obama knows what Romney said and doesn’t want it said on national television in front of the voters. The voters will then see it was taken out of context.

    • TomJB

      Exactly! To think Romney wasn’t more prepared to handle the 47% comment more than any other issue in the debate is to be delusional. It would have blown up in the President’s face. As inept as President Obama’s debate preparers apparently are (or probably as of today, were), they at least knew to steer away from the freshly-dug dirt on the side of the road in Iraq…

      So, are they going to take the entire hour and a half debate out of context?

  • Elaine

    Oh, he’ll mention it, alright. Next time Obama will ATTACK with a vengence! Be prepared for the ALINSKY tactics! Romney needs to stay focused on the VULNERABILITY of Obama and his policies that have so many people out of WORK! Jobs bring in tax revenues and decrease spending on WELFARE, so bring on the 47% BS!


    If Oh brought up 47%, Mitt would have nailed him with his racist speeches from his past.
    You saw the real OBAME tonight, weak and no weapons.
    He will be armed in next one, but it is on Foreign Policy, it will be EYE OPENING since we have our people getting killed everywhere and OBUMMER only has slogans.
    I wonder how proud BJ Bill is tonight of his new bud.
    Hillary will be moving away from OBOZO as soon as possible.

    Apparently, these people didn’t listen when the debate outline was given. I don’t recall there being a ‘perceived voter slight’ segment.

  • Bill

    Maybe it was because a plurality of Americans actually agree with the intent of the 47% observation and poll after poll shows it. People want jobs and if they have a job, they want better paying jobs, and if they have a better paying job they actually pay more taxes – which is the heart of economic expansion philosophy, which Mitt described for all watching last night. It is not about raising taxes (a BHO fetish) but about raising the number of taxpayers. Oh, and by the way, if more people are working more are actually paying into Social Security and Medicare – which is a good thing but that well is drying up.

    No he did not bring it up because the voters he needs actually believe in what Mitt was saying – independents.
