I'm not sure if you guys are aware of this or not — I mean this is certainly news to me! — but apparently Barack Obama is out there saying unkind things about Mitt Romney! I know! I am appropriately scandalized!
I mean, here's Romney, this currently-unemployed former governor, out there on the road, doing everything he can to land a new job so that he can to put foie gras on his family. And Obama comes along saying deliberately mean-spirited things about Romney's ability to do the job effectively. What a jerk! Have you ever heard of anyone being so cruel?
And, hey, I'm not the only one who thinks so. Mitt's wife Ann is right there with me…
"Well, I feel like all [Obama is] doing is saying, 'Let's kill this guy,'" Ann said in a taped interview with CBS’s "This Morning" on Wednesday…
"When you hear the president of the United States saying that a president needs compassion and that your husband doesn't have it, do you listen to that?" asked CBS correspondent Jan Crawford.
"No. 1, they’re not correct. It makes you recognize that they are gonna do everything they can to destroy Mitt," answered Ann Romney.
Hey, I'm not naive. I know that politics is a rough business. But I think that we should draw the line at saying hurtful things.
