According to Associated Press calculations, Romney managed to convince only 47.2 percent of voters that he was the right man to steer the country through war, recession, fiscal cliffs and debt ceilings. What a fitting end to the political career of a man who basically called 47 percent of the country leeches on the government who expect politicians to buy their votes.

doesn’t come out right,” Romney said. “In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong.”
“When I become president it will be about helping the 100 percent,” he assured Hannity.
Well, that didn’t happen, now did it, Rom-Con?
But make sure you thank the 47 percent who voted for you.
