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. In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong. And I absolutely believe however that my life has shown that I care about 100%. And that’s been demonstrated throughout my life. And this whole campaign is about the 100%. When I become president, it will be about helping the 100%. – Mitt Romney, Oct 3rd
I think there was some merit to what he originally said; I just don’t think the number is 47%, and I think it was one of the more moronic statements for a presidential candidate to say.
