I have a question for those who are insulted by Mitt Romney's statement
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
I have a question?
I've read many of the reports with people expressing themselves as being insulted by the Republican nominee. They dislike being pigeon holed into a category of the "less then desirable" 47%er.
As they like to say, they are 100% Americans...NOT a percentage of America.
This had me thinking...
How many of these folks last year were apart of the Occupy Wall-Street crowd?
Those who happily pigeon holed themselves in the 99% and classified those like Romney into the dreaded 1%.
Why is it okay for those folks to classify the wealthy as the greedy 1%, and yet they get upset when they are classified into the 47%?
If they want to say how they are now 100% American, and are insulted by being put into a group, isn't that being a bit hypocritical?
