Typical Mitt Romney. First he says that there's 47 percent of Americans "who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them" whom he'll "never convince [to] take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
And now he says that that was wrong of him to say. Come on, guy! Make up your mind…
When asked by host Sean Hannity what he would have said if President Barack Obama had brought up the controversial comments in the first presidential debate, the Republican nominee said that such stumbles happen while campaigning, and "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," Romney said. "And this whole campaign is about the 100 percent. When I become president it will be about helping the 100 percent."
Actually, I'm a little shocked. This is kind of a bad negotiating strategy from a supposed business genius. He went straight from caring about 53 percent to 100 percent. There's nowhere to go from here. He caved too soon!
What he should have done was promise to care about 75 perecnt of America, and then we could have come back and said, "Hmmmm… How about you care about 90 percent of America?" Then he could'a been like, "I don't know. That's a lot of America." I think, in the end, he could have gotten away with only caring about 86 percent of America at the most. Maybe even 82 percent if we were all feeling tired.
Better luck next time, Mitt.
