At his news conference, Mr. Romney had the opportunity to rephrase the remarks that he now claims were not elegantly stated.
Why did he not rephrase them?
Because there is no way of elegantly stating contempt for the voters.
Due to his lapses of the last few weeks, the Republicans would be well advised to find another candidate.
There is precedent, in 2002 Mitt Romney shoved aside the Republican candidate for Governor in Massachusetts, Jane Swift. She was not polling well.
The same is true of Mitt Romney. He should stand aside.
