Basically, Romney says it never happened. Who are you gonna believe, your lying ears or Mitt Romney?:
The president said he's writing off 47 percent of Americans and so forth. And that wasn't at all what was intended. That wasn't what was meant by it. That is the way it was perceived.Not being a Democrat, I am not rejoicing. I am appalled to think how close the country came to having another fantasy-prone mental case at the top. Reagan was bad, Bush II was worse.
Imagine Romney negotiating with a foreign power. "Hey, I never said that!"
