Obama Responds To Romney's Offensive 47% Comment!

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaDavid Letterman

And as usual, President Obama keeps it classy!!

Following the viral exposure of Mitt Romney's degrading remarks about 47% of Americans, Obama appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman.

And he responded like a true leader, saying:

"I don't know what he was referring to. But I can tell you this: When I won in 2008, 47 percent of the American people voted for John McCain. They didn't vote for me. And what I said on election night was: 'Even though you didn't vote for me, I hear your voices, and I'm going to work as hard as I can to be your president.'"

PRESS the PLAY button to watch what else he said (above)!

We're sure every politician is guilty of saying something less-than-pc at one time or another, but Mitt's comments were particularly hurtful for the campaign of an aspiring United States president.

UNITED is the word of the day, Mitt! Simmer on it.

    LMAO @ his "47% voted for McCain comment" well yes, but the OTHER 49% voted for him. The truth hurts, and Romney's number might be off, but he wasn't lying when he said America is filled with people who feel entitled to healthcare, money, and jobs just because they are American. Time to take responsibility for yourselves. Our country cannot afford to support everyone anymore. Also, Romney and Obama are both fools. I am voting for Johnson.

    Perez your wacked! He is a President that people are talking in his own office that he doesnt go to his meeting. It is OK that he is on EVERY talk show but cant make IMPORTANT meeting on our country ! His wife and kids spent over 10million on vacations this year. The one girl just had a birthday and they sent 25 friends and the secret service to Mexico on our buck!
    Is it not true that if you are an entitlement person you WILL NOT be voting for Mitt!
    It is funny cause NOBODY magnified Obuma who has done nothing before office and pretty much sums up his 4yrs in office. Every law he has put into effect, is in courts being fought!! Healthcare, we need to pass it so we can see whats in it!! Holly dogballs, REALLY????

    Acted like a real leader???? Obama is a travesty. He wants to keep people on welfare & dependent on government aid. Do we want to create another Greece? He is taking this country down and most intelligent people see through his bs. And would a real leader allow what happened to Ambassador Stephens and DO NOTHING? He went on a campaign trip rather than take action. What happened in Libya was an act of war and this president of yours did nothing. Time to clean house and get America back on track. Oh and by the way, I own my own company and I did build it mother f-cker!

    Re: LaurenAshley – Umm, you really have no clue do you. Do you know who the 47% who pay no taxes are? A good majority of them are soldiers deployed around the world and the elderly.

    Re: Yenkme – Do you even know what you are talking about? The largest amount of welfare recipients live in Red States the overwhelmingly vote Republican all the time. Do research before you open your mouth.

    You didn't work hard enough for me or my country Mr, President. You have been pretty successful at making things worse. This democrat will vote for the other side this time. Hit the road jack.

    I wish people would GET THE FACTS before posting stupidity. They admitted to doctoring the tape. But you hear that from the main stream media. It doesn't fit in to their constant kool aid drinking and Obama worship.

    I'm sorry but I agree with Romney. I don't really get involved in politics bc its all bs. but tbh he's right. It's unfair to recieve all these benefits from the government and you're not even paying taxes. I get that some people might need it, but in the end I've always believed that if you work hard you will reap the benefits. I'm tired of seeing all these people who live off government money and don't pay taxes. This is where my hard earned money is going towards? I don't think so.

    Quit drinking the kool-aid Perez. You are a smart guy.

    The point of the video is that the USA is becoming an entitlement nation. I don't care if they reside in red or blue states. Welfare is up. Poverty is up. Unemployment is up. Nat'l debt…wait for it…up! Enough is enough. Consider that a strong economy benefits everyone including the so called 47%. Obama and redistribution benefit only the so called 47%.

    Re: Tina – Jesus what are you talking about? Romney doesn't even deny anything in it. I love the idea that Seniors on SS are freeloaders, they worked their whole lives and are now getting back the money THEY PUT IN. Any non-partisan person could tell you that only a small number of this "47%" are poor people that aren't working. Also hilarious that any of the 2/3 of these people that DO have jobs and are paying the various other state/local taxes, are paying a higher percent of their income than Romney does. But these facts won't change anything, this is what they really believe…

    Re: Robert – Like I said only stupid people can make up excuses or I am racist!! Blow me you clueless retard!!!

    Live on a Social Security check and small pension. Not eligible for food stamps or Medical as I have more than $3000 in the savings account. Interestingly enough, I applied for Medical (most other states call it Medicaid) and had a counselor try and coach me how to withdraw most of the money from my savings accouunt so I could qualify. Interesting.

    Anyway I am voting for Romney, O has had his chance and failed.
