Mitt Romney says half the country is comprised of people who see themselves as victims, and this is news. The Obama administration gets caught flat-footed and the American consulate in Benghazi is attacked by Muslim extremists with RPGs, and four of our personnel are murdered, and this isn’t news.
Though what Mr. Romney said was overstated and only partly true, it was a boneheaded mistake from a presidential candidate who needs to overcome media- and Democrat-generated stereotypes about himself. He needs to say nothing in private to his friends that he isn’t willing to say openly to the rest of us. It’s a matter of integrity.
