Barack Obama denies his campaign called Mitt Romney a felon
Earlier today Barack Obama finally addressed a White House briefing and when asked he denied that his campaign ever accused Mitt Romney of being a felon:
Well, first of all, I am not sure that all of those characterizations that you laid out there were accurate. For example, nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon.
Really Barack? Stephanie Cutter is your deputy campaign manager and this is what she had to say about Mitt Romney:
Cutter said that there were two ways to interpret the story. The first: Mitt Romney was “misrepresenting his position” at Bain to the Securities and Exchange Commission, “which is a felony.”
Or, he was “misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people. If that’s the case, if he was lying to the American people, that’s a real character and trust issue
She claimed that Mitt Romney was either a liar or a felon. Even the head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, reiterated the point that Mitt Romney is a liar and possibly a felon, and I think she probably has a little bit of time and effort invested in helping Barack Obama’s reelection bid.
And then there is Harry Reid, who made the baseless accusation that Mitt Romney didn’t pay any taxes for ten years. If I am not mistaken that is a felony.
Barack Obama can deny it all he wants but people did accuse Mitt Romney of being a tax cheat and a felon, and some of those people have direct ties to his campaign.
Either Barack Obama doesn’t know what is going on within his campaign or he is a liar. I know which option I think is the truth, what about you? I guess it all depends on what your definition of ‘is’ is.
