n Wednesday night, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney none-too-subtly distanced himself from his dismissive comments about the 47 percent of voters who don't pay income tax, telling a Univision forum in Florida that his "campaign is about the 100 percent of America." He repeated the phrase "the 100 percent" another three times in his opening statement. Speaking before a live audience of Latino voters, Romney also struck a softer tone on issues like immigration and health care, embracing the health law he passed as governor of Massachusetts. Obama has called me "the grandfather of ObamaCare," Romney said at one point. "I don't think he meant that as a compliment but I'll take it."
