He Built It - Romney's House of Cards Reputation

I'm still undecided who did more to destroy their reputation in a presidential campaign, Mitt Romney or John McCain? In Romney's case which of the following did the greatest damage?

1. "Corporations are people, my friend… of course they are. Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People's pockets. Human beings, my friend." — Romney said to a heckler at the Iowa State Fair who suggested that taxes should be raised on corporations as part of balancing the budget (August 2011)

2. "I like being able to fire people who provide services to me." – Romney said while advocating for consumer choice in health insurance plans (January 2012)

3. "I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there." — Romney said during a Republican debate (January 2012)

4. "He [Obama] says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It's time for us to cut back on government and help the American people." — Romney at a campaign event in Council Bluffs, Iowa,. ( June 8, 2012)

5. "I'll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry's come back." – Romney said about the American auto industry, despite having written a New York Times op-ed in 2008 titled "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt," in which he said if GM, Ford and Chrysler got a government bailout "you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye"

6. "I'll tell you what, ten-thousand bucks? $10,000 bet?" – Romney, attempting to make a wager with Rick Perry during a Republican presidential debate to settle a disagreement about health care (December 2011)

7. "I should tell my story. I'm also unemployed." —Mitt Romney, speaking in 2011 to unemployed people in Florida. Romney's net worth is over $200 million.

8. "[My wife] drives a couple of Cadillacs." – Romney, campaigning for president in Michigan (February 2012)

9. "I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that's the America millions of Americans believe in. That's the America I love." – Romney (January 2012)

10. "PETA is not happy that my dog likes fresh air." — Romney in 2007, responding to criticism from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals following revelations that he had once put the family dog in a carrier and strapped it to the roof of his car during a 12-hour road trip.

The big question now is will Romney be forced to address this issue two weeks from now in the first debate. They will certainly try to get beyond this before then. Is there a possibility he can come up with anything for the debate that would be new? Wouldn't it be far to risky not to bet the farm now and make a formal 'Apology Speech'.

It was a light-hearted and friendly moment.

I'm not sure what the context of 10 was.
The joke was well received = they didn't punch him in the face for comparing his situation (voluntarily unemployed zillionaire) to theirs (wondering how the mortgage will be paid).

I don't think he deserves the credit he's giving himself, but I don't see why this is terribly damning to his reputation either.
Except Romney's "similar approach" involved someone stepping up with the funds. And there wasn't anyone. His plan would not have worked; it could not have worked.
