Who needs Gingrich as the nominee when you've got silver-foot-in-mouth Romney. From the NYT's The Caucus blog:
But for a campaign that has been accused of taking Mr. Obama’s remarks out of context, the sentence about the poor immediately became cataloged in a growing list of comments by Mr. Romney that suggested a distance from the concerns of struggling Americans.
As his tax returns became a growing issue, Mr. Romney said that his speaking fees of more than $370,000 were “not much money.”
When talking about taxation in August, he said, “corporations are people” — a line that will not go away, despite its context: “Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to people. Where do you think it goes?”
And he said, “I like being able to fire people,” for bad service, just as his leadership at the venture capital firm, Bain Capital, was being questioned.
