Obama camp hammers Romney comments through social media

Another popular tweet and post on Tumblr is a map titled “Romney’s responsibility map.”

“Instructions: Cut out the 47% of the country that doesn’t matter,” the image reads.

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.
