Mitt Romney: 'I Was Very Upset' Over 47 Percent Comments

by - June 06, 2013

Former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney told CNN he was "very upset" over his infamous comments that "there are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what" because they are "dependent on government" and "believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing." When asked if he spent "a lot of time kicking yourself" after making the remarks, Romney said he had regrets. "I was very upset. There were a number of times I said things that didn't come out right," Romney said. Romney noted that "everything you say is being recorded" in a political campaign today, unlike "25 or 30 years ago."
