Mitt Romney says his 47% remarks were “completely wrong”
- september When the 47% video leaked last month, Romney said that his comments were “not elegantly stated.” However, he stood by the sentiment behind them: ”I recognize that those people who are not paying income tax…those that are dependent upon government…I’m not gonna get them.”
- october Today, Romney denounced the comments entirely. “I said something that’s just completely wrong,” he told Sean Hannity. “My life has shown that I care about 100 percent. And that has been demonstrated throughout my life. And this whole campaign is about the 100 percent.” source
Okay, but it took him how fucking long to “decide” this? This has been out there for weeks. And it’s two days after his “win” at the debate (and I use the term loosely, because I quarrel with calling it winning when pretty much everything he said was a lie) that he determines to finally challenge it?
Mitt, most of us are really not stupid. We can tell the difference between something honest that you say when you think only sympathetic ears are listening and something calculated that you say to try and get everyone’s attention.
This guy. He’s just such a sleaze. He’s slippery and dishonest, and I honestly do not understand how people can stand behind that and point to it as any kind of a positive. Do his followers just all share his total lack of either ethics or empathy?
hahaha, cass, remember how Kerry getting a reputation for being a flip flopper essentially destroyed his campaign???
and now Romney’s not really getting the same scrutiny for being just as (if not MORE) inclined to saying politically expedient things??
BOY I’M SURE GLAD WE HAVE A LIBERAL MEDIA :)
I pretty much only watch MSNBC anymore, and they actually have been pretty rough on him for how many times he’s chosen to reinvent himself — but I feel like they could still put the pressure on even harder. He contradicts himself so often. The few things he said during the debate that weren’t outright lies were complete reversals of positions he was taking during the rush-to-the-right primaries.
