Trying to recover, Romney says he is poor Americans' best bet

Source: Reuters

By Steve Holland

ATLANTA, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Mitt Romney said on Wednesday he would do a better job of helping the poor than President Barack Obama as the Republican tried to recover from a secret video that showed him dismissing nearly half the electorate as dependent on government help.

Romney has sought to make the Nov. 6 election a referendum on Obama's economic stewardship, but over the past week the spotlight has been fixed firmly on his own missteps - most recently a video that shows him writing off Obama supporters.

Romney hopes to recover by framing the presidential election as a choice between big government and economic growth. At an Atlanta fundraiser, Romney said he wants to spur job creation by encouraging private enterprise.

"The question in this campaign is not who cares about the poor and the middle class. I do, he does," Romney said, jabbing the podium with his index finger and his voice rising with emotion.

"The question is who can help the poor and the middle class. I can, he can't and he's proven it in four years," he said.

He cares so little about the poor, that his carelessness turned full circle and became care! Or he divided by zero or something.

pay" federal income taxes, anyway.

20. I agree. I don't think he pays anything. I think he hides his money overseas so that he doesn't

have to pay. Shame on the Democrats for not staying on top of that issue.

27. They are, LS..at least Harry is..

Harry Reid ties Romney comment to tax attack ('He could be 1 of those who paid no fed income taxes')

Reid went on to suggested that Romney is not paying any such taxes. “For all we know, Mitt Romney could be one of those who have paid no federal income taxes,” he said.

I hadn't read this before I commented but it doesn't take a genius to know that mitt's not paying any income tax or why would he be hiding them?

Thank you, Harry Reid!

We need more Democrats out there screaming for those tax returns, just as some Republicans have called on Robme to release them.

....but I can't help but wonder why every time I see pictures or video of him speaking out on this issue, all of the seats behind him are always vacant. It's like he is talking to an empty chamber. Is our congress not currently in session? Anybody know?

going to accomplish all that's on his wish list. How are you going to help the poor? How are you going to create jobs? How are you going to provide help for college? and on and on.

40. If you can find a copy of the video, he explains that. According to him, his mere election will...

be such a relief to the "job creators" that they'll just start hiring because he's president. I shit you not. He offered no policy, just a probability. There's probably video in the vid & multimedia forum.

33. Using the suggestion that voting is akin to gambling is very telling.

I'm sure rMoney has convinced many a frightened business executive that getting into hawk way over their heads is the only safe "bet", but a election is not a casino. It's a choice based on clear facts, and the fact is, rMoney will not disclose the facts we need to make a clear choice so he's forcing the election into a gambling scenario.
