WASHINGTON, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- The election campaign of U.S. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Tuesday was trying to contain damages done by leaked video of him making comments about almost half of Americans dependent on government, as well as saying the Palestinians don't want peace.

Excerpts of the video were released by Mother Jones, a liberal magazine, throughout Monday and Tuesday. The video, made in May at a fund-raiser with wealthy donors, showed Romney saying 47 percent voters "pay no income tax", and are "dependent upon government". He said those voters would probably support President Barack Obama.

Describing those people as thinking themselves as "victims", Romney said they believe they are "entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it."

More excerpts of the video were released on Tuesday, showing Romney making controversial comments at the same May 17th fund- raiser in Florida about foreign policy.
