ROMNEY BACKS OFF 47 PERCENT COMMENT: On the Sean Hannity show last night, Mitt Romney said:
Clearly in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands, of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you’re going to say something that doesn’t come out right. In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong. I absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that I care about 100 percent and that’s been demonstrated throughout my life.
Probably not a bad strategy to try to put the remark behind him with independent voters who are more receptive to Romney after his stellar debate performance. But of course the comment will be continually resurrected by the Obama campaign, and will certainly come up again in the upcoming VP debate between Biden and Ryan.
