Why so picky; Romney was talking to the "choir", people who were there to give him money and were interested in why the polls showed support for Obama. His remarks weren't for publication, since they were secretly taped. Romney has since said that all fundraising events will be open and thereby he will know he needs to explain more fully. Bamanation I actually added up all the forbes 500 richest american worth. It totalled close to 2 trillion dollars. Many people do not really know how big a trillion is: 1,000 billions. Our national debt is 14,000 billions.
