Mitt Had Plan for 47 Percent Remarks

At least he had a plan even if he didn’t win the White House. In comments made public yesterday, Mitt Romney’s campaign said they had a five-point plan to deal with the infamous leaked video of the GOP candidate’s “47 percent” remark. When the video of Romney saying that he wouldn’t be able to win over “47 percent” of the American people in mid-September, the campaign was already fighting negative press for the convention and Romney’s poor response to the Benghazi attack. First on the agenda: win the Oct. 3 debate. The other parts of the plan included sending out surrogates, have Romney give big speeches, reexamination of resources in key states, and, finally, have Romney stand behind a podium and shout his speeches—so as to sound presidential.
