Romney Backs Off '47 Percent' Comments

Romney Backs Off '47 Percent' Comments, He now says his remarks disparaging nearly half the country were "completely wrong." Romney Admits '47 Percent' Was Wrong, Mitt Romney for the first time characterized his comments during a fundraiser that were surreptitiously filmed and caught the candidate essentially writing off 47 percent of Americans as "completely wrong."

"Clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're gonna say something that doesn't come out right," Romney said in an interview Wednesday night with Fox News' Sean Hannity. "In this case I said something that's just completely wrong."

Romney went on to say that his life has shown he cares about "100 percent and that's been demonstrated through my life and this whole campaign is about the 100 percent."

"When I become president it will be about helping the 100 percent," Romney told Hannity.
