Mitt Romney has been accused of revealing something in a hot-mike moment that perhaps he didn't want to reveal ("Dems: 'What's Mitt hiding?" April 17). I understand the desire on the part of the Democrats and The Sun to catch Mr. Romney in a similar "gotcha" moment to what President Barack Obama had during his meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, but Governor Romney repeated several times in the early primary debates in front of millions of viewers, apparently none of then Democrats or Sun employees, that he would consider cutting departments but didn't have enough information to decide which ones.

Have the Democrats and The Sun so soon forgotten those exchanges during which Texas Gov. Rick Perry had his infamous meltdown? I hardly think Mr. Romney is hiding those intentions.
