He's said it repeatedly for over a year now. Here is Romney a year ago, using the Klan slogan in a campaign ad.

Romney said it again four days ago.

In an era in which it's apparently okay for Republicans to accuse President Obama of being a socialist, I guess we now need to ask if Mitt Romney is a Ku Klux Klansman. Not whether Romney inadvertently is using the KKK's number one slogan from the 1920s on the stump, no, the Republicans would say, if this were a Democrat, that clearly the candidate was a closet member of the KKK. So, is Mitt Romney a closet member of the KKK? Keep in mind, that even Romney is now claiming, between the lines, that President Obama is a socialist. So why shouldnt' America be asking if Mitt Romney is a Klansman?

(By the way, I'm waiting for the traditional media to poo-poo this and ignore it, or write it off as funny, while they freely quote the GOP candidates, and members of Congress, repeatedly calling the President a "socialist," and never write articles about how kooky or ridiculous (or un-American) that accusation is.)

Here's a Klan publication from the 1920s using Romney's slogan.

Would be nice if one of the other Non-Paul candidates or their organizations would pick this up. Ron needs to stay far away from this.

Very elitist.

I've read Yale had that saying on campus "Keep Yale, Yale" with regards to who to accept into the school. I wonder if Romney's Harvard had the same.

Rumor is that he actually said "Keep America America" and LA Times misquoted him.
