Barack Obama should have demanded a photo I.D. from Mitt Romney at the debate the other evening because, as he himself quipped, Obama didn’t know the man who stood at the other podium.
Yet, today, the I.D. even more necessary with the news that Romney is today saying, “I was completely wrong about the 47%.”
(CNN) – Mitt Romney said he was “completely wrong” when he argued that nearly half of Americans were “victims” and dependent on government.
The admission came Thursday as the GOP presidential candidate sought to clarify his controversial “47%” comments.
“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,” Romney said on Fox News. “In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong.”
Wrong. I wonder if Mr. Romney could define the word, wrong. Wrong as in bonehead mistake? Wrong as in terribly poor judgement?
Or is it wrong because it lowers my poll ratings?
Give me a break!
BREAKING NEWS: US jobless rate dips to 7.8%
The right-wing is spinning out of control this morning with the release of the breaking news. Romney will somehow [in his own clever way] spin it towards himself, even though he hammered the president with his +8% jobless rate.
Even though there were but 114K new hires, not enough to keep up with birth rate, one needs to remember that 10,000 baby-boomers turn 65 every day. The arithmetic is simple: 10K x 30 = 300,000 people leaving the workforce.
