Should Mitt Romney just concede to President Barack Obama now? It seems that he's falling so far behind in polls that even pundits in support of the presidential hopeful are predicting another four years for Obama. Certainly this has the Mittens campaign sweating bullets, but when is enough enough for them?
First of all, President Barack Obama is currently ahead of his challenger by least eight percentage points. This Pew Research Center survey puts Obama in the biggest lead so far.
When Mitt Romney made his comments about 47% of America, he obviously didn't intend on the public knowing about the "closed to the media/public" event. Well, it's obvious that the reason is because he knew he was making blatantly insulting comments against almost half of the country. In fact, his comments were downright anti-presidential.
He continually puts his feet in his own mouth every time he opens it, shaping up to be the male version of Sarah Palin, so is Mitt going to win in November? It doesn't seem likely at all. Obama is so far ahead in polls right now, and the Republican party seems to be eating its own in the backlash of Mitten's comments about 47% of the U.S. It truly seems that Obama has been given his next four years by none other than the man running against him.
So should he concede or fight this out to the bitter end? You know things are tough when even the VP candidate chosen by Mitt himself is speaking out against him. Paul Ryan spoke against Romney's "47%" gaffe, and his words were rather harsh. He said that Mitt's comments were "Obviously inarticulate." When asked if he agrees with Romney, he responded with a very simple response:
So the VP and the presidential wannabe can't even see eye-to-eye publicly with their issues. Meanwhile, 47% of the United States knows, publicly, that it has been insulted and accused of relying on welfare, accused of being "victims." There are plenty of people who vote GOP who have been on or are currently on welfare, and there are plenty of people who are voting for Obama as part of that 47% that are not on welfare. Furthermore, just because someone has had or currently does rely on government assistance doesn't make them "victims," and it doesn't make them lazy or dependent on handouts. Obviously Mittens is out of touch to the point that he spits on nearly half of the country he is running to represent.
These disparaging comments against nearly half of the voting nation may just be the crippling blow to his campaign that loses him the election. With there only being about 50 days left in the race, he should really be minding his "Ps" and "Qs".
