The audio of silverware clinging and clanging as a haughty Mitt Romney called the majority of the electorate, essentially, freeloaders presented a hotrrific optic. Unless you were the President. From Politico:
President Obama on Thursday met the man who made "47 percent" part of Mitt Romney's legacy.The comment was considered the quote of 2013.
Obama and opposition researcher James Carter, who released the infamous Romney fundraiser video, met backstage before Obama's education event here, Carter's cousin, Georgia state Sen. Jason Carter, told POLITICO.
Upon being introduced and told of James Carter's role in the 47 percent video, Obama jumped forward to embrace him.
"Thank you, thank you so much," Obama told James Carter, his cousin said.
