(CBS News)-- Mitt Romney, trying to distance himself from perhaps his most damaging campaign moment, said Thursday that his infamous "47 percent" remarks were "completely wrong."
"Clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you are going to say something that doesn't come out right. In this case I said something that's just completely wrong," Romney told Sean Hannity on Fox News. "And I absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that I care about 100 percent. And that has been demonstrated throughout my life. And this whole campaign is about the 100 percent. When I become president it will be about helping the 100 percent."
