Many conservatives applaud Mitt's 47% statement. It was no secret!

I thought what Romney said was wonderful. I wish he'd put it into a commercial. He should make it a part of his stump speech. For too long we have shrunk from saying the Emperor has no clothes. A naked Barack Obama is what we need to see. Romney speaks the truth, and the truth will set him free from this dirty little "secret". Out with it. Thanks for your courage Governor!
LEAVE THE WELFARE PROFESSIONALS BEHIND. THEY'RE A LOST CAUSE. OBAMA HAS BOUGHT THEM. WIN THE UNDECIDED VOTE. THAT'S OUR LAST BEST HOPE FOR VICTORY!

Romney 47 Percent 
By KEN THOMAS 09/17/12 11:14 PM ET AP
COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Republican Mitt Romney says a video clip in which he said that nearly half of Americans think they are "victims" was "not elegantly stated." But he says President Barack Obama's approach is "attractive to people who are not paying taxes."

Romney spoke to reporters Monday evening in a hastily called news conference after the emergence of a video in which the GOP presidential nominee told donors that almost half of American voters "believe that they are victims."

The Republican nominee did not disavow the comments but said they were made during a question-and-answer session. He said it was indicative of his campaign's effort to "focus on the people in the middle."

The website of the magazine Mother Jones posted a video of Romney's comments from a private fundraiser.
