Because that was the Romney quote whenever he tried to walk back his "47%" comment?

Well, clearly in a campaign, with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. In this case, I said something that's just completely wrong.

It's not suspicious, it's someone's joke. Used to be you could google "Satan incarnate" or something similar and the first twenty results would be the Microsoft homepage. People do this constantly. It's never that funny, it quickly goes away, and then my mom will e-mail me about it in three weeks.

This one isn't even a proper Googlebomb. The words "completely wrong" were his own words describing his 47% comments, so they were in every single report about him after he said them.

That's actually kind of cool that he would admit to being 'completely wrong'. I'm used to politicians coming up with some sort of half-assed, backpedaling non-apology when they're say something dumb.


If only Obama and his administration and those tied to it (including Hillary Clinton and Ambassador Rice and Jay Carney) would come out and say they were "completely wrong" when, for two weeks, they blamed the Middle East attacks that led to the death of four Americans on a video that no one watched...

If only...

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

His campaign for a few weeks tried to spin the statement prior to giving up the ghost.
