Mitt Romney is now doubling back on his “47%” remarks caught on camera at a fundraiser in May. He admits he was “completely wrong” when he said nearly half of Americans were “victims” dependent on government and again attempts to convince Americans he is fully committed to the “100%” of Americans. Meanwhile, President Obama is fighting back to recover from his lackluster performance in Wednesday night’s first presidential debate. CNN White House Correspondent Brianna Keilar reports the latest.
Although Romney has changed his tune somewhat, the Obama campaign has become aggressive in response. “The President found his mojo yesterday when he was campaigning in Denver and Wisconsin,” but Keilar notes that not as many Americans will have seen that version of Obama as the 67 million people who had seen him in the debate. “He’s got aways to go to sort of reverse the enthusiasm gap,” Keilar says, “that he had between yesterday and the debate.”
