Wisconsin Senate candidate, Tommy Thompson (R), weighs in on Mitt Romney's leaked video tape comments.
"I think that is taken out-of-context. Republicans are a very compassionate party.... what Governor Romney is saying is 'We'll be willing to help people, but they've got to help themselves, and they've got to be able to stand up and take what is offered to be able to make something out of it'.
I think a much more telling thing is when President Obama saying that he wants to redefine and to reassign the profits and the assets from one person to another. The redistribution, I think, is a much worse position to be in than what Governor Romney is."
So here's the next stage in this Romney video vs. Obama audio duel: When will Democratic candidates be asked about the Obama audio, and if so, will any Dems rebuke the president the way Scott Brown and Linda McMahon have rebuked Romney?
Thompson, by the way, took a hit today in new polls.
A Marquette University Law School poll showed Democratic challenger, Tammy Baldwin, ahead, 50%-41% in their Senate race, while New York Times/Quinnipiac/CBS showed the two tied at 47%-47%.
