Completing a remarkable overnight transformation ...

Mitt Romney disavowed his much-criticized statement that the 47% of Americans who supported President Obama paid no taxes, considered themselves victims and refused to take responsibility for their lives, saying in a Thursday night interview that he had been “completely wrong.”

“Clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you say something [that] doesn’t out come right," the Republican presidential nominee said on Fox News. "In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong."

Romney spoke in an interview with Sean Hannity, who asked what he'd have said if Obama had brought up the 47% remark during their Wednesday night debate. Democrats have used the line in campaign ads.

For more than two weeks, Romney has faced a backlash after the covertly taped video of him speaking to donors was published online by Mother Jones magazine. In a Florida fundraiser last May, the candidate described the 47% of voters who support Obama as depending on government, believing they are victims and paying no income tax. He said they were “unwilling to take responsibility for their lives.”

I like this new Mitt Romney. I'm just not sure how many days we get before he morphs again.

Now he says he was wrong. Give me a break!

It wouldn't be so bad if he hadn't come out right away with his inelegant spiel! Why didn't he think about how to handle it before he did that.

"I like this new Mitt Romney."

And what he brings to mind for me is the cross-examination scenario:

"We know you're a liar. So, the question is, were you lying then or are you lying now?"

Actually, the Romney the left has ben portraying in negative political ads is a characterature, you can create any image of anyone you want when you cut and paste, cherry pick, edit, etc. to make someone look a certain way.

Romney in the debate is the real Romney, the Romney in DNC/superpac ads is a fake made up Romney by the left.

So its not the new Romney, its just Romney we saw at the debates, it appears the left has bought into their own characterature of Romney, they actually believe the negative ads as the real Romney, when its obviously not.

You must have missed the debate then because your description isn't even close.

I almost agree.

Corrected: All flash, lying on substance, SOB.

It wasn't that Obama was unprepared for the debate, but he was unprepared for the extent to which Flip Romney would brazenly deny key aspects of his campaign up until that moment. Romney sprung a clever trap. If Obama had brought his full legal skills to bear and pointed out some of the lies, he would have been derided as Angry Black Man by those ignorant of the issues, instead of appearing weak as he simmered in disgust. It was a no-win situation. Romney didn't get to where he is without being a slick SOB.

And whiner/ineffective leader if he mentioned that's it's impossible to work across the isle with people who have made it a point not to do the same.
