Already scrambling to steady a struggling campaign, Republican Mitt Romney confronted a new headache after a video surfaced showing him telling wealthy donors that almost half of all Americans "believe they are victims'' entitled to extensive government support.

He added that as a candidate for the White House, "my job is not to worry about those people.''

At a hastily called news conference late in the day, Romney conceded the comments weren't "elegantly stated'' and that they were spoken "off the cuff.''

The Romney campaign said "Mitt Romney wants to help all Americans struggling in the Obama economy.''

Obama's campaign manager, Jim Messina, called Romney's comments "shocking."
