Sound Bite Blunder As Mitt Romney Tells Soledad O’Brien: ‘I’m Not Concerned About The Very Poor’

Chalk up another sound bite blunder for Mitt Romney.

First it was “Corporations are people.” Then that doozy was followed by “I like to fire people.” Just this past week he said “The banks aren’t bad people” and now he rounds it out by telling Soledad O’Brien “I’m not concerned about the very poor.”

Each sound bite was followed by an explanation and more points from Romney but what will be remembered, quoted, and used against him by him opponents were those sound bites that he will claim were taken out of context.

Every quote in every newspaper, TV newscast and political ad is “taken out of context.” It is taken out of the context of a longer speech, interview or conversation.
