What Romney’s Gaffe Gets Right About the 47 Percent

There are plenty of things to hate about Mitt Romney. In the case of yesterday’s “47 percent” statement, though, inaccuracy is apparently not one of them.

Alex Klein, writing for The Daily Beast:

In late August, when a certain Republican presidential candidate said that “big business” was “doing fine” due to “offshore tax havens,” I coined it a “Romney gaffe”—a slip of the tongue that’s embarrassing, but painfully accurate.

My most important takeaway from Klein’s article? I really hope “Romney gaffe” embeds itself in our cultural vernacular.
