    GOP is having a field day with it.  I've seen the meme stuff based around the "quote" popping up in usually non-political sites.

    I suspect it will be folded into the earlier attack of "Obama didn't give credit to the actual SEALS" and will become the foundation of the Romney campaign from here on out.  

    It was a clunky message when Warren went for it, I don't know who told Pres Obama that would be a winning message even if he didn't trip over his words.  Americans have the engraved fairy tale that they are all self-made, pulled themselves up by their bootstraps type.  So telling folks you got a lot of help along the way is thus basically telling folks you are not as special or exceptional as you believe yourself to be - helluva campaign message Chicago.

    Before that remark the Romney campaigh had John Freaking Sununu spouting off about cocaine using toddler Barack.  Bain was in the news and even Republicans were calling for Romney to release taxes.  Now Romney is hitting on all cylinders with an attack that will allow him to frame Pres Obama in a new way that will stick.

      the 2012 equivalent of "clinging to their guns and their religion" -- a remarkably true statement which nonetheless was politically inadvisable and an easy target for the Rethugs' distortion tactics.

      Electing conservatives is like hiring a carpenter who thinks hammers are evil.
