SHARE Romney tries to put out firestorm from leaked 47 percent video

Mitt Romney holds a news conference Monday night responding to the leaked entitlement video that’s causing huge headaches for his campaign tonight.

“It’s not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. I was speaking off

the cuff in response to a question. And I’m sure I could state it more

clearly in a more effective way than I did in a setting like that,”

Romney said Monday of the video that shows him saying that 47 percent of Americans essentially expect handouts. “Of course I want to help all Americans. All Americans have a bright and prosperous future.”
