The problem is -- -- supporters don't have TV shows or newspapers.
Which explains why every morning show -- up Romney's 47% remarks.
But Obama's redistribution remarks got zilch.
In light of Obama's Letterman appearance is partying with -- reminded once again.
That Romney has always been the underdog team fighting without cheerleaders.

Of carrying his water and making a case for -- and they disproportionately.
Cover something like that Romney says they won't cover anything at.
But Obama is redistribution.

Didn't they make the argument that you know that would Obama's it was a long time ago -- -- did and the other thing and that was set on that is another channel.
