Romney's '47 percent' crack dissed the very people who support him

In his cavalier dismissal of the 47 percent of the population he describes as "people ... who don't take personal responsibility for their lives," Mitt Romney conveniently forgets about the large number of his own low-income, marginally educated but fervent supporters ("Remarks may haunt Romney," Sept. 18).

These are people who Republican operatives have persuaded to demonize taxes, science, sensible gun control and women's reproductive rights rather than consider which candidate's approach would be in their own best interests.
