At Emergency Presser Romney Stands by Comments That 47% of Americans Are Freeloaders – Video

At a late night emergency  press conference arranged on Monday night, Mitt  Romney in response to a secretly recorded video made at a private fundraiser in May the “Boca Raton home of private-equity executive Marc Leder, stood by the comments he made to the millionaire donors present stating that “47 percent of Americans pay no taxes” believe that they “are entitled to healthcare, food, and housing” and also said that they portray themselves as “victims”.

Romney took just three questions, walking away when asked if his claims that almost half of Americans see themselves as “victims” represent his “core convictions” and what he believes.

Mother Jones’ David Corn — who first reported on the video said on  MSNBC News Monday evening, “The fact that Mitt Romney has not challenged a word here shows you that this is what he said, this is what he said behind closed doors with a  bunch of other millionaires he felt quite comfortable with.”
