DETROIT (WJBK) -

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney got in political trouble after a video was released capturing him saying this "There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

When he says "with him" he's referring to President Obama.  (PLAY THE TAPE)

Romney backers fire back with the release of a video from 1998 when Barack Obama talks about the redistribution of wealth.  (PLAY THE TAPE)

What do you think about all of this?  Before you answer, here's what the panelists on last night's Let it Rip segment with Fox 2's Huel Perkins.  Play the video in the player.

On Huel's panel: Mark Brewer, Chair of the MI DNC, Ron Edwards of WTK 1400 AM radio and Fox 2 legal analyst Charlie Langton.
