On America’s Newsroom this morning, Bill Hemmer played a clip of what he said would be Mitt Romney talking about his best friend. He went on to play a clip of Romney talking about President Barack Obama. “My mistake," Hemmer said. "I thought that was about Ann Romney. Clearly, that was about Barack Obama who is not his best friend.” This comes less than a week after a Fox News graphic put a photo of Obama in Romney’s place in a lineup of GOP presidential candidates.” Oops.

On Monday morning's America's Newsroom, host Bill Hemmer was speaking on Mitt Romney's viability as a candidate. Hemmer mentioned that Romney was interviewed by Chris Wallace on Sunday, and, in the course of the discussion, Hemmer noted that, "at the end of that interview, Chris gave Romney the opportunity to talk about his personal life, which is frankly something we don't hear an awful lot about.
Romney in 1994:
âI would like to have campaign spending limitsâ¦. I also would abolish PACSâ¦ I donât like the influence of money â¦ Lobbyists I want to register, I want to know who they are.â
As of last August, Romney received more lobbyist contributions than the rest of the GOP field combined. His largest single source of campaign revenue is Wall Street bankers, and a massive 10 percent of all American billionaires donated to Romneyâs campaign.
