    It's frustrating to me when I see the media letting them off the hook by calling these things "gaffes". This is not a gaffe. The 47% video was not a gaffe.

    A gaffe is when you phrase things poorly or use the wrong word on the spot, and therefore don't convey your intended meaning.

    In these cases, the individuals are describing their actual beliefs, and they're doing so at length, in detail, after considerable thought.

    Yo, media--that is NOT a gaffe!
