Mitt Romney participated in a public forum with Spanish language channel Univision in Miami Wednesday (Obama will participate today), and the moderators didn’t even have the decency to throw Mitt any softball “What is your vision for America” questions before heading right into the tough stuff. Their very first question was whether he regretted his secretly recorded “47%” comments. Fortunately, Mitt was 100 percent prepared with an answer, and we’re 100 percent sure we know how the Republican damage control team is now planning to spin this incident:
Well, first of all this is a campaign about the 100 percent. And over the last several years, you have seen greater and greater divisiveness in this country. We had hoped to come back together but instead you have seen us pulled apart. Politics has driven us apart in some respects. So, my campaign is about the 100 percent in America. And I am concerned about them…
I know I’m not going to get 100 percent of the vote, And my campaign will focus on those people we think we can bring in to support me. But this is a campaign about helping people who need help…
I’m convinced that if we take a different course, you’ll see incomes rising. I have a record, I’ve demonstrated my capacity to help the 100 percent.
Mitt, we get it already. We 100 percent get it.
