Cuccinelli Echoes Romney's "47 percent" Remarks

The Washington Post gets an early copy of Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's (R) new book which doesn't hit stores until Feb. 12.

In The Last Line of Defense: The New Fight for American Liberty, Cuccinelli "uses language akin to Mitt Romney's famous '47 percent' comment. The Republican presidential candidate had suggested that a share of the electorate was so dependent on government hand-outs that it would never vote for him."

"Romney's words, captured on a hidden camera, helped sink his campaign. Time will tell how the similar language plays for Cuccinelli, who unlike Romney has never been accused of trying to pass himself off as a moderate. In his case, he wants voters to hear it."
