47 Percent?

Here is a link to a video posted about Romney’s recent controversial comments at a private high dollar fundraiser.

Do you think this video will have an effect on the polls?

Romney’s slip of the tongue is an amazing example of just how powerful language can be in the public sphere. Romney clearly spells out his conservative beliefs using biased words such as “dependent”, “victims”, and “entitlement”.   All three of these words hold terribly negative connotations, and each word sheds a harsh light on the supposed helplessness of present-day Americans. He goes even further to say, “My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” It is as though these words are coming from a strict father scolding his rebellious children. Romney lost a few votes on this one for sure!
