Obama Says He Won't Write Off Half the Country

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- President Obama, campaigning in Milwaukee Saturday, said the United States "can't get very far if we're writing off half the country as victims."

The comment was a slap at his Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, who drew heat this week for a video from a May fundraiser in which he said 47 percent of Americans view themselves as victims, look to the government to support them and won't vote for him.
