This time four years ago, it was still unclear which way North Carolina had gone in the presidential race. Not so today.

All right? There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement, and that government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. I mean, the president starts off with 48, 49 -- he starts off with a huge number. Fri, 21 Sep 2012 01:50:32 +0000 Michael Bitzer 5881 at http://wfae.org Assume Video Cameras Are Always Rolling
