Responding to Romney Remarks, Obama Denies That Americans Are "Victims"

Dependent on the state, sure, but not "victims"


U.S. President Barack Obama has weighed in on Mitt Romney's leaked remarks, telling one late night TV talk show host that, to succeed at America's top job, "you have to work for everyone, not just for some."

Obama made the remarks during a taping of the Late Show with David Letterman on Tuesday night.

"One thing I've learned as president is that you represent the entire country," he said, telling Letterman that he does not believe Americans are "victims."
