I like AllahPundit a ton. However, I think he misses a point of analogy in this post trying to tell us that Mitt Romney’s fundraising comment about Obama voters isn’t a problem:
This was recorded awhile back at a fundraiser, just like Obama’s infamous “bitter/clinger” comments in 2008. Remember how big that blew up? That’s how we ended up with President McCain.
The bitter/clinger comment from Obama came during the Democratic primary–it was one of the great insights into Obama’s character that he wasn’t even talking that dismissively about Republicans, but rather about Democratic primary voters. And I’d argue that the bitter/clinger remarks haunted him all through the primary season, which is why Hillary Clinton won more votes than he did.
Was that Jeffrey Toobin on Morning Joe on the segment right after Jeff Greenfield?…awkward…
If an analogous scenario plays out here, Obama will win more votes…and Romney the election. Right?
