GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s wife,Ann Romney, appeared on a local Colorado news station where she addressed controversial comments made by the GOP nominee in which he said that he does not “have to worry” about the 47 percent of Americans who pay no income tax because they would likely support PresidentBarack Obama. Ann Romney clarified that her husband was not expressing any ‘disdain’ for the poor or those on government assistance programs.
The Fox 31 Denver anchor noted that the Republican presidential nominee was having a rough news cycle around the 47 percent comments. “What do you want to say to Americans about those comments,” he asked Ann Romney.
Romney replied that the context of what her husband was talking about was the rising rates of poverty and dependence in America.
