Recordings of Mitt Romney speaking at a fundraiser are released and may spark some backlash. CNN's Jim Acosta reports.

    We are not dependent people. We just know and stand by our President. We have faith in him with his decisions he makes and we know he cares about ALL peoples in the US, not just the rich. Romney is owned by the rich such as Adelson. No one can say he will not have to pay him back in some form or another if he gets into office, which I hope he will not because he is hiding too much of the real Romney. I watched the president today speak at the U.N. and the speech was unreal and covered practically every issue to everyone in that room, so basically, he did not need to meet with them individually. I am proud of our President and I trust him. He has worked VERY hard for the middle class.

    I`m sure you also will show the clip uncovered where Mr. Obama says he wants to redistrbute the wealth. Here is what Romney is talking about. I own a business and I go to work everyday and I do mean everyday I work seven days a week. Across the street from me lives three folks in a house who all receive goverment assistance and have Obama Biden signs in their lawn hoping to get more free stuff. So you can spin all you want I live reality.

    I am part of the 47% middle class on Social Security and medicare and VA, I know I earn IT, but this 47% can vote and he is right for once, because I will vote for President Obama.

    CNN fails to ask the right questions, example – Does Romney mean the retiree who paid taxes all his/her life? What about Romney who will not release his own tax returns?

    It is wrong to assume that the 47% solid support for Obama is the same 47% who don't pay taxes. I support Obama and I pay taxes as do all of my friends. There are a lot of reasons not to support Romney - includingm but not limited to, his stance on women's health, immagration and lack of understanding of foreign policy.
