"Clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you say something [that] doesn’t come out right," the Republican presidential nominee said on Fox News. "In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong." "Mitt Romney says his '47%' remarks were 'completely wrong'
How does it feel to be Mitt Romney, going to sleep every night wondering what you said today that you will have to disavow tomorrow?
And what of his supporters? There were quite a few conservatives who thought the 47% line was going to be a winner for Romney. They defended both him and what he said. And now Mitt Romney says it's "totally wrong."
It's good for our politicians to evolve to learn new things and come to a new understanding, don't get me wrong. But Romney's 47% comments were recorded in May. As early as two weeks ago he was standing by them as true but "inelegantly stated." This is an awfully short turnaround, and I don't by it. Either he was shamelessly pandering then or now.
