What was President Barack Obama thinking?
If some people are wondering why Mitt Romney got a few points bump in the polls after the debate, I may have the answer.
For those independents who are sitting on the fence, it may have simply been Obama’s statement that he was not very far from Romney’s position on Social Security.
Who is giving Obama his talking points? For a subject as touchy as Social Security to be thrown on the table so recklessly by a Democrat, it had to have the Republicans jumping with glee.
They could now say: “See? The Democrats are no better than us when it come to throwing seniors under the bus.”
That was a self-destructive comment that I’m sure the Republicans will take advantage of as soon as they get a chance.
I’m sure many Democrats cringed as I did when he said this, and I’m also sure a lot of seniors changed their vote the moment they heard this.
