One last remark about Romney's remarks
I'm not 100% sure what Romney's point was in his remarks. I think, given the principle of charity, that his remarks were trying to be an indictment of the entitlement system, as we know it. His smaller point of entitlements being abused and only given to Democrats, is wrong, but plays well to Republicans. I think it's similar to the "you didn't build that" statement by Obama where people will sound dumb for taking it out of context. I'm concerned that this campaign will be run on the idea of "you didn't build that" vs. the 47%. Wrong statements on both sides should be criticized, though.
