Mitt Embraces the 100%, Ctd.

Justin writes eloquently about Mitt Romney's apology yesterday for his denigration of the 47% at a Boca Raton fundraiser. Bravo to the governor for acknowledging and correcting his mistake. I'd propose to add one more sentence to finish and perfect the sentiment: Add "and that's why I will not begin to reduce spending on food stamps, unemployment insurance, and other programs to help Americans through hard times until after we've reduced unemployment below 6%. There's no point telling Americans to get a job until there are jobs for them to get."
