Romney Says Something True, then Apologizes for Saying It

No apologies, Mitt. Not when you’re right.
GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney said Monday he doesn’t understand how young people could vote for Democrats.
“I don’t see how a young American can vote for, well, can vote for a Democrat,” Romney said in a speech at the University of Chicago.
We hear a lot about Greece’s massive debt in the news. Thanks to President Obama, Americans’ debt per capita is now actually worse than Greece’s. It’s harder for young people to get jobs now than it has been in decades.
The former Massachusetts governor said Democrats were saddling young people with debt while Republicans are committed to reducing spending and balancing the budget.
Romney then said he didn’t mean to be “flip.”
“I apologize for being so offensive for saying that,” Romney added. “In the humor, there’s some truth there.”
It’s not funny. It’s just true. Keep saying it, and never apologize for it.
