The media came down hard on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s comments about 47 percent of the population being dependent on government programs. The question is, will they do the same with Barack Obama’s 1998 comments advocating redistribution of wealth? And why didn’t this tape surface in the 2008 campaign? Hmmm. CBS News’ on line site did make mention of the Obama comments.
(CBS News) Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday sought to shift the focus from a leaked video of controversial comments he made at a fundraiser earlier this year to comments President Obama made in 1998 about the “redistribution” of wealth in America.
