Mitt Romney should not apologize for his statements regarding the "47 Percent" of the population who are dependent on the government. He is correct. Under President Obama, more people went on Social Security Disability than actually got jobs. The amount of people on food stamps doubled. This administration and their mainstream media lapdogs have proven themselves time and time again to be pushing an agenda of dependency.

Any semblance of objectivity in the mainstream media has been completely erased; for it has become a propaganda machine for President Obama, who openly and freely can contradict himself without scrutiny.
Watch some Amazing Obama Contradictions:
Romney, on the other hand, is unable to utter a sentence without a democratic operative waiting in the wings with a hidden camera. The Mainstream Media itself is completely in the tank for Obama and America should be outraged.
The comment that has landed Romney in hot water, as reported by Politico:
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are 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. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what...These are people who pay no income tax."
Why would anyone be upset over this comment? It is true. Townhall.com has a list of some of Obama's comments. What exactly does the following comment mean, for example?
"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen."
What does that mean? Where is the media scrutiny on that comment? Actually, the comment really gives insight on President Obama's mentality, as illustrated in the recent film, "2016: Obama's America," where Dinesh D'Souza shows that some of the seemingly perplexing decisions made by the president, eg, the "apology tour," and the return of the bust of Winston Churchill, make perfect sense.
Mitt Romney would be better served to completely ignore the faux indignation of the mainstream media and instead; to stay on course, to continue to pound away at his message. President Obama can also pound away at his message of class warfare and polarization.
May the best man win.
