When I won in 2008, 47% of the American people voted for John McCain. They didn't vote for me. What I said on election night was even though you didn't vote for me, I hear your voices and I'm going as work as hard as I can to be your president. And one of the things I've learned as President is you represent the entire country. And when I meet Republicans as I'm travelling around the country, they are hardworking family-people who care deeply about this country. And my expectation is if you want to be president you've got to work for everybody, not just for some.")[Notes:WIRE COPY] NEW YORK (AP) _ Rebuking Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama said Tuesday that Americans are not "victims" and that voters want to make sure that their president is "not writing off big chunks of the country." Obama's remarks came after a secretly taped and newly released video showed the Republican presidential nominee describing "47 percent of the people" as Obama supporters who depend on government and believe they are victims. "My expectation is that if you want to be president, you have to work for everyone, not just for some," Obama said in a taping of the "Late Show" with David Letterman. It was Obama's first response to the Romney video, which roiled Romney's campaign and put him on the defensive about his views about nearly half the nation. The president appeared on the TV show before a night of fundraising in New York City. In the video, taken during a May fundraiser and posted online Monday, Romney said it is not his job "to worry about those people." He was referring to what he called Obama's locked-in supporters who believe they are "entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it." Romney has since said he made his point inelegantly in trying to describe differing visions for the nation. "There are not a lot of people out there who think they are victims" or simply entitled, Obama said. Obama also said he did not know what Romney was even referring to with his "47 percent reference." Romney has said he was speaking about those who do not pay federal income tax. The president said that when he won in 2008, 47 percent was the amount of voters who went for his opponent, Republican Sen. John McCain. McCain actually got about 46 percent of the popular vote. Current polling shows Obama with a slight edge over Romney. Obama said people understand that the presidential candidates will make mistakes on the campaign trail. He said that includes one he regrets from 2008, when audio from one of his own private fundraisers had him saying that some residents of depressed rural areas get bitter and "cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them." Having said that, Obama added: "One thing I've learned as president is that you represent the entire country." The president and Letterman also bantered over lighter subjects, with Obama joking about the Florida pizza restaurant owner who lifted him off the ground in a bear hug last week. `'I think he fixed something in my back," Obama said. The two men exchanged compliments on their appearances. "You look good," Obama said. "You haven't seen me naked," Letterman said. Obama replied: "We're going to keep it that way."(****END****) VIDEO PRODUCER: BOB MCCALL--------------------------- VIDEO SOURCE: WORLDWIDE PANTS/"LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN"-----------------------VIDEO APPROVAL: BOB MCCALL----------------------------VIDEO RESTRICTIONS: MANDATORY COURTESY WORLDWIDE PANTS/"LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN", NO ARCHIVING, USAGE UP TO 72 HOURS AFTER AIRS ON EAST COAST.----------------------------------MARKET EMBARGO (S): NONE--------------------------------SCRIPT/WIRE SOURCE:d4583BC-US--Obama, 4th Ld-Writethru,452
