We all heard him say it. We now know EXACTLY what he thinks of working Americans when he's behind closed doors with his rich buddies. He's a two-faced, butt-kissing, dishonest worm who will say whatever he thinks will impress the people around him. He has no integrity, no honesty, and no consideration except for himself and his own selfish wants. He is a snake who will turn on the American people the day after he's elected.

Smartest thing Mittens could've done. He can now say 'Look, I apologized for that, that's not me, don't keep beating me up over it' and get some sympathy instead of contempt.

Obama should've used that hard on him in the first debate when he could. Now it's off the table, or at least has a very reduced value.

Someone's come awake in Mittens Campaign HQ, and they're starting to do a few things right. Obama had better take this seriously.

Romney has a long history of flip flopping on his views. This is just one more example.
No matter what ROney says or is saying, there is always footage somewhere of him saying the exact opposite.
He is not what America needs.

Will one number "47%" that was said behind closed doors by the great presidential Mitt Romney who is known as big philanthropic supporter of the poor with millions of dollars in charity every year will give the attack dog s of the liberal media of Obama excuse to hide the failures of Obama and his incompetency from the American people? Clearly not. The American people are not stupid as Obama believes and using lies by Obama and his media never brought victory in elections when Obama is driving America to bankruptcy and our young generation to hopelessness and despair. Romney is right to back off "the 47%" because mathematically it was not accurate and included groups of people that he should not blame.“47%” was recorded in a private setting against the laws of Florida and was not meant anything against the American people except showing Obama’s plan to literally buy votes with food stamps and free cell phones. Romney is right to let Obama look after some other worthless excuses to save his humiliating appearance as president of America who knows nothing about economy and calculus as proved in the first debate. Obama who said to study in Columbia was never seen there by his fellow students and his grades were hidden from the American people by the liberal deceitful socialistic media of George Soros that created new fake phony fraud character of Obama so that the American will be fooled time and again to choose him for their failed president who aims at pushing them over the cliff.

He's going to say it wasn't him?! It WAS and is him and his opinion of Americans. He cares??? What a joke! That was the true Rmoney and the only thing he regrets is being caught saying it on camera!

You Dummycraps don't get it AMERICA can't handle the truth. If so, we never would have liberated Iraq. Bush was the greatest president EVER. We want Bishop Rmoney because he is Bush 3.

Looking for more ammo since the beatdown. His comments were secretly recorded in a fund raiser and taken out of context. He was reffering to who would be the voters he would stand a better chance of attracting. If you listen close he did not mean the entire 47% was the needy. The Dems are trying to keep people dependent upon government. They are providing crutches from the Government to accomplish this. With free everything for the last 30 years, there is no excuse for people not to have come up in life.

He knew just what he was saying and certainly revealed his true colors with that comment. You are either being disingenuous or are very naive.

Feeble attempt at spin. He clearly wrote off 47% of the voting public as spongers, people looking for handouts, and the poor and minorities in general. While he may have been talking about their votes, he revealed his true, elitist nature. He won't ever be a President for 100% of America, despite his backpeddling and current claims.

The video is what it is. Nothing was "taken of context." That's what reTHUGlicans do - when they're not simply doctoring the videos, as they did with O'Keefe's of ACORN, NPR, etc.

Of course he cares about saying it on camera, that's why the ONLY thing he can do is try to apologize and hope to take it off the table - that by saying he was sorry (bogus or not), Obama won't be able to use it as much without sounding like a jerk.

Myself, I think the Obama camp can overcome that by just showing the difference between Romney on the tape and Romney now, and asking "Which one's the REAL Mitt Romney?" That's a valid question.

Actually Bush 5. You forgot Clinton and Obama. They kept the Iraqi war pipelines open. Murderers them all. Right!
