When Mitt Romney made a comment that most Americans who rely on governmental handouts are not his job to worry about, he was being "stupid," said Meghan McCain.
"He was just letting loose at a fundraiser that he thought was closed camera which is stupid," she told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR's Mac & Gaydos. "I assume every time I leave my apartment that there's someone with a camera phone recording everything I do."
McCain said that Romney, with his national prominence, has to expect situations like this.
"Even at the fundraiser. If the people attending weren't taking video, I'm sure some waiter there was probably like, 'Hey, I should put this on the Internet' and it's stupid of him to not realize that."
Despite the heat he's taking from the incident, McCain doesn't think it will threaten Romney's chances come November.
"I think for the people that already hate Mitt Romney, this is just another example of why they think he's Thurston Howell," she said, adding that one ineloquent statement won't affect his campaign.
McCain also said that the Republicans, instead of relying solely on Romney, should unleash vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan as an attack dog to give a breath of fresh air to the campaign.
