As it turns out, both comedians and the Democrats really did seize on the opportunity to chastise Romney over the remarks.
Here's The Daily Show's take on the incident:
The Obama team had a strong response -- particularly online with emails, advertising, and through the use of Twitter posts.
As it turns out and according to an article in today's NY Times, they're on the lookout for Romney's gaffes, collecting more juicy content each time the candidate slips up.
So, who will Mitt Romney choose not to care about next?
