Mr. Romney said today that he had been using the word “saw” in a “figurative sense.”Sometimes you've just got to admit when you've made a mistake and move on. That makes so much more sense than to do mental gymnastics coming up with a plausible excuse.
“If you look at the literature, if you look at the dictionary, the term ‘saw’ includes being aware of in the sense I’ve described,” he said. “It’s a figure of speech and very familiar and it’s very common and I saw my dad march with Martin Luther King. I did not see it with my own eyes but I saw him in the sense of being aware of his participation in that great effort.”
