“And I’ll go into people’s houses at night and wreck up the place!” – Nixon’s Head Recording
“My god, I really sound like that?  I thought my voice had more of a Clark Gable quality.” – Richard Nixon’s Head

DailyCallerLogo You never want to be too impressed with one day campaign stories, even ones that are deeply embarrassing.  But Mittens’ candid quotes about how he really feels about the help were at the top of BBC’s homepage last night, and today even Tucker’s House of Wingnut Welfare has it as their second story:

Romney defended to the tape, saying, “It doesn’t capture the question, so I don’t know precisely what was asked, but I think it was about my campaign and how I’d be able to get the majority of voters to support me.”
