Your 2 Cents: Romney's Controversial Comment

Posted: Updated:

Mitt Romney's comment, that 47 percent will vote for President Obama because they're dependent on the government, will be shoved aside by some other campaign development soon. But it'll dog him until the election. Here's what you had to say.

Cindy from Tryon first: "At least he tells the truth. 47% of the people do feel they are entitled to everything."

To that Kimberley says: "Maybe there are 47 percent needing help, but we only want what is ours in the first place."

V in Edmond writes: "I'm in that 47% and I don't get government help. I will vote for Obama and no I'm not lazy."

Kim says: "In your comparison you failed to mention that Obama's comment was a lie which offended business owners who have worked hard to build their own business. Romney's comment was truthful."

K writes: "It is just really frustrating that a politician would actually say he is not concerned with 47% of the population WITHOUT knowing the circumstances of some of these people."

From Clifton: "Romney was trying to articulate that when there are more takers than makers America is in big trouble."

Finally Gary says: "It's astonishing to watch the press, which includes you, sit there and worry about what a Presidential contender says while the rest of the world goes up in flames on Obama's watch. Shame on you and every other so called journalist in the country."

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's YOUR 2 Cents.
