MILWAUKEE- 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.

Mrs. Ann Romney said the video is not what it seems.

"Well, you know, I think if you listen to the whole video, you can see that's not what he's meaning at all," said Ann Romney to TODAY'S TMJ4.

Ann Romney defended her husband -- while Democrats said his off-the-cuff comments show whose side he's really on.

From a stop on the campaign trail in Dallas, Ann Romney battled back against the idea her husband does not care about almost half of America -- insisting he would be a president for everyone.

"He does care about individuals and he cares and he wants for everyone to be able to get a good job in this country.  He doesn't want people to have to be dependant on government," said Ann Romney.

Ann Romney will campaign at Marquette University on Thursday; President Obama will be in Milwaukee Saturday.
