Obama Camp Video Documents Reactions To ’47 Percent’

The Obama campaign filmed voters listening to Mitt Romney’s comments that 47 percent of Americans consider themselves “victims,” and released a web video of their reactions Tuesday. 

“I actually felt sick to my stomach,” one woman says in the video. “I don’t think anybody’s ever looking for a handout. I think that we all want chances and opportunities.”

“That isn’t someone who I’m thinking, ‘Oh I want him as my president,” another woman says.
