In his first public remarks after last night’s debate, President Obama told a crowd at a Denver campaign rally that he “met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney.”
“But it couldn’t have been Mitt Romney because the real Mitt Romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. The fellow on stage last night said, he didn’t know anything about that,” Obama said.
“The real Mitt Romney said we don’t need anymore teachers in our classrooms, but…. Don’t boo, vote,” he chided the crowd.
“The guy on stage last night, he said that he doesn’t even know that there are such laws that encourage outsourcing. He’s never heard of ‘em. Never heard of tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. He said that if it’s true he must need a new accountant,” Obama continued. “Now, we know for sure it was not the real Mitt Romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant.”
The president continued with a series of zingers and stabs at Romney’s policy that he didn’t attempt last night.
