"Ryan Criticizes Romney Comments At Private Fundraiser: ‘Obviously Inarticulate’"

In an interview this evening with NBC Reno, Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan was critical of comments Romney made at a private fundraiser in May, dismissing 47% of American as people who can will never “take personal resonsibility and care for their lives.”

Ryan said Romney’s remarks were “obviously inarticulate.” Asked if he thought Mitt Romney regreted his comments, Ryan responded “I think he would have said it differently, that’s for sure.” Watch it:

At a press conference last night, Romney called his comments at the May fundraiser “inelegant” but largely defended his remarks.

In a separate interview with a New Hampshire station Ryan was asked if he agree with Romney’s remarks at the fundraiser. He responded, “no.”
