what Romney SHOULD HAVE SAID about the 47%ers:

"The folks who are getting free stuff, don't like the folks who are paying for the free stuff,
because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free
stuff and their own stuff.

The folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop, and the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!

Now... The people who are forcing the people to pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff, that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff, are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So... The people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff, and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.

Now understand this. All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason?The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.
Thomas Jefferson said it best: "The democracy (Republic) will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."

I have no problem believing everyone in Cleveland has an 'Obamaphone', I've been there many times. Makes Detroit look less shitty.

I believe this program was started by Reagan to help the poor. And then it went to cell phones and I think it was Bush who allowed that. I don't think having a cell phone should be a necessity unless one can pay for thier own.

Stuff like this is great campaign fodder for Romney and hopefully pushes a few off the fence.

The problem with the "Obama phone" is that Obama had nothing to do with it, yet all these lazy ignorant morons think Obama is giving them a free phone so that's why they are voting for him.

From what I have read, the "Obama phone" started in '88 with Reagan when AT&T had a snafu. It was a land line so people in need of 911 could contact 911. In 1996 Clinton picked it back up but it really didn't make major headlines until 2008 when they switched the program over to cell phones because of price and accessibility . Because of it being in 2008 everyone just lumped it with Obama.

Now this is just what I have read from 4 or 5 different articles and I was much to young then to remember any of this so if any of you seasoned individuals have anything to add, I would like to here.
