    Mitt Romneyís 2012 presidential campaign never recovered ... The incident has become a case study not only in watching oneís words (and being nice to your waiters), but in spin control. Hammered by the media and the Democrats for sounding elitist and insulting half the country, Romney first blamed the listeners, saying they had misheard what he intended as innocuous demographic analysis. Later, as the transcripts of the video made clear that he said what everyone thought he said, Romney fell back on the classic dodge that his remarks had been taken ďout of context.Ē A lot went wrong for...
