Colbert on Romney's 47%
Colbert comments that after one aid said Romney's campaign has been shaken to say the least: "Vomiting blood, to say the most." As far as those irresponsible ones who expect a handout: "What do they think, that food grows on trees?" And "there's no such thing as a free lunch; lunch is $50,000 a plate." He also noted that some of those not paying income tax are soldiers receiving combat pay. "See, Romney mentioned the troops in a speech." Naturally the Democrats went after Romney "like a poor person going after a basic need."Since Romney thereafter said that while his may have inelegantly phrased it, he stands by the sentiment. So Colbert then does a bit dressed up as a rich guy elegantly saying the same thing. Quite funny.
