  •  Mitt video story making big waves overseas too (3+ / 0-)

    It's currently getting top billing on the Guardian in the UK, with the opening paragraph:

    Mitt Romney's campaign came close to hitting the self-destruct button when he stood by a secret video recording suggesting that 47% of Americans are government-dependent "victims" who do not pay taxes.
    I think this one's pretty big, and his 10pm press conference if anything just made things worse. It confirmed that it's genuine, allowing all major news networks to cover it, it showed that the campaign is very worried about it, and yet all they could think of in Mitt's defence was that he didn't phrase it very well - in other words essentially endorsing his comments.
