Haslam on the 47 Percent

Gov. Bill Haslam comments on Mitt Romney’s famous ’47 percent’ remarks, as reported by TNReport.
“I think he made a statement about, ‘Hey, it might be hard to win some folks’ votes,'” Haslam told reporters after a groundbreaking ceremony in Nashville Wednesday.
“I think our response in government obviously is to care about everyone. I’ll say this: There’s videos of a lot of candidates. You had President Obama say when he was running, ‘There’s just people who just cling to guns and God,’ and I think he’d go back and say, ‘That’s not quite what I meant by that.'”
Haslam added that the comments were likely part of the Romney team’s “political calculus” in terms of where he has the best chance to win votes.
