Boss Obama wasn't happy with Mitt Romney's 2012 concession call, according to David Axelrod's new book:
President Obama was shocked and irritated by Mitt Romney's concession call in the 2012 presidential election—and claimed Romney insinuated that Obama won only by getting out the black vote, according to a new book by presidential campaign strategist David Axelrod.
Obama was "unsmiling during the call, and slightly irritated when it was over," Axelrod writes.
The president hung up and said Romney admitted he was surprised at his own loss, Axelrod wrote.
"'You really did a great job of getting the vote out in places like Cleveland and Milwaukee,' in other words, black people,'" Obama said, paraphrasing Romney. "That's what he thinks this was all about."
Right. But if the situation was reversed and Obama had remarked that Mitt "had done a great job of getting out the vote in Kansas and Texas," think Mitt would have thought "in other words, black people"?Posted by Hube at February 8, 2015 08:46 AM | TrackBack
