RT if you agree: We need a President who is fighting for all Americans, not one who writes off nearly half the country.— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) September 18, 2012
We can’t afford a President who says “my job is not to worry about” 47% of the American people: twitter.com/BarackObama/st…— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) September 18, 2012
Romney said 47 percent of the country’s population, which he does not expect to vote for him, is “dependent upon government” and believes “they are victims," according to video filmed at a private fundraiser earlier this year. The Obama campaign has called Romney's remarks dismissive.
“When you're president of the United States, you're president of all the people, not just the people who voted for you,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said earlier on Tuesday.
The Romney campaign has not used social media to respond.
