(Studio: Anderson Cooper) "Mother Jones" YouTube video of presidential candidate Mitt Romney talking about voters played. [Voice of ROMNEY - says there are voters who believe they are victims who feel entitled to government help and they will vote for President Obama no matter what.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, Paul Begala and Jim Acosta about what Romney said. [BEGALA - says Romney is trying to push two narratives: he does not care about the middle class and wants tax cuts for the rich; notes there is a political divide on taxes; states Romney is showing contempt for the 47 percent: arrogant elitism.] [FLEISCHER - says more people should pay income taxes and the Democrats offer government dependence.] [ACOSTA - gives the Romney campaign's view of his fund-raiser statement about dependency on the federal government.]
