Mitt Romney’s remarks disparaging 47 percent of Americans are the latest in a string of poorly chosen words that play into Democrats’ portrayal of him as out of touch. But he’s not the only one plagued by a campaign gaffe deemed elitist by critics. an open microphone caught Obama telling Russia’s outgoing president that he needed space to work out their disagreements over U.S. missile defense plans. "After my election, I have more flexibility,” Obama quietly told Medvedev, who said he would carry that message home. Romney called it evidence that Obama is hiding a secret agenda for a second term.
