Journalist and Author Bob Woodward says Mitt Romney is not clear in what he is talking about when he said "47% of Obama supporters are dependent on the federal government." Woodward continued to say that Romney is dissing some of his own base. Do you agree? Tune to Erin Burnett OutFront at 11p ET on CNN for the full interview.

Wicked Willard can run, but he can't hide all the evil he has created. Modern media capabilities give every citizen the capability of providing real-time a/v fact checking.

The Shadow knows the nature of a vulture capitalist.

"less credible by the day..... "

Doesn't that presume some pre-existing level of credibility?

"I have no idea what anybody is complaining about."

--Of course you don't. No surprise there.

"It's the truth."

--No, it's not.

"Does the truth bother Liberals this much?"

--Conservatives (at least, the realistic ones) are the ones upset with Romney's stupid and arrogant statements. Liberals are downright happy that they came to light. Only conservatives on the delusional fringe are okay with what Romney said.

Yes it does, hopefully America will realize that 10% of the population pays 70% of the taxes. These are the people Obama has been attacking, and claiming he does not represent them. Then he claims Romney does not represent Americans just cause he told the truth. Obama is lying hypocrite, he has been attacking Romney for his wealth for months. Romney is an American that paid more money in taxes than the all the libtards whining on this fora. It is clear liberals are afraid they may have to pay their fair share of taxes, and Obama appeases these assholes.

The truth:

— 53.6 percent of households pay the federal income tax. Presumably Romney is okay with these folks.

— 28.3 percent of households pay no federal income tax, but they do pay the payroll taxes for Social Security and Medicare. That means they don’t need Mitt Romney to convince them to “take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” They already have jobs.

Most of the households in this group don’t pay any federal income tax because they qualify for enough deductions that their income tax liability has shrunk to zero. See this Tax Policy Center report for more, which gives an example of “a couple with two children earning less than $26,400. They get an $11,600 standard deduction and four exemptions of $3,700, and that takes their liability to zero.” Indeed, it’s worth noting that many of these deductions and credits were part of the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts, which Romney wants to extend.

— 10.3 percent of households pay no federal income tax because they’re retired and elderly. Many retirees aren’t taxed on their Social Security benefits, which they earned by paying into the system over many years. If Mitt Romney secretly thinks that these households are all irresponsible freeloaders, he has a weird way of showing it, as he keeps insisting that he doesn’t want to cut Medicare or Social Security benefits for those over the age of 65.

— That leaves 6.9 percent of households which are non-elderly and have incomes less than $20,000 per year and aren’t paying the payroll tax. These poorer households pay neither income taxes nor payroll taxes. Perhaps Romney thinks that they should all pay more in federal taxes. It’s hard to say. But this is also a much smaller fraction of Americans.

Meanwhile, just as a reminder, the vast majority of Americans still pay state and local taxes — in fact, these taxes tend to be more regressive. When you add up all the different types of taxes, most income groups in the United States tend to pay an amount that’s roughly commensurate with their share of the national income. Here’s a relevant report from Citizens for Tax Justice:
