Obama: "47 Percent" Comments Show Romney Doesn't Get Out Much

GOP nominee still sticks by what he said

|

(Reuters)—President Barack Obama said on Thursday that Mitt Romney's comment disparaging 47 percent of Americans as victims meant the Republican candidate had not "gotten around a lot."

Obama chided Romney for remarks, secretly videotaped at a Florida fundraiser, in which he said nearly half of the U.S. population was dependent on the government, did not pay federal income taxes and would not vote for him.
