+ 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
I have a hard time believing that someone who boasts about how much he enjoys firing people who provide services to him cares about the 100 percent.
Mitt’s life has NOT shown that he cares about the 100 percent. It shows that he’s a greedy opportunist who doesn’t care about how many people he screws over as long as it means he’ll get to pad those accounts in the Caymans and Switzerland.
