Not advocating any political opinions one way or the other, but this is hilarious!

I get the parody, and without question it is funny/clever. And I certainly don't care to lessen the video's impact by relegating this to a political discussion...

But I just can't help but question why the general public seems to think I should think less of the man for being a success. Don't we all aspire to be better?

Thoughts?

Pretty mature, isn't it?

They are trying to create a divide and negative distinction based on how much money the guy has and the other side is urging the country to distance themselves from a certain set of policies & an ideology that have clearly not worked.

In b4 moved to politics section

But honestly, don't you think those who are more fortunate to have been successful in life to help (be taxed more) those who are down on their luck so they too can be successful?

Since Mitt hardly pays any taxes, doesn't that make him part of the 47% he is criticizing for not paying taxes...

That video is totally funny and you have love america where people are allow to make something like that and the Politician can not do anything about. It is like the whole Samtorium Google Problem. If Politician are going to be idiot the Internet will surely make them look their worse.

They already do. The top 5% of earners pay 59% of the federal governments income tax receipts. The top 10% pay 71% of taxes. That is a massively progressive tax system.

So you are saying that the people who were "down on their luck" are now successful?
