In a clip from ‘Letterman’ released on the web, Obama responded to Mitt Romney’s comments about 47 percent of the electorate being ‘victims’ by saying:
“Well, I don’t know what he was referring to, but I can tell you this. When I won in 2008, 47 percent of the American people voted for John McCain, they didn’t vote for me. And what I said on election night was, even though you didn’t vote for me, I hear your voices and I’m going to work as hard as I can to be your president. And one of the things I’ve learned as president is you represent the entire country. And when I meet Republicans as I’m traveling around the country, they are hard working, family people, who care deeply about this country and my expectation is that if you want to be president you got to work for everybody not just for some.”
Take a look at this video in which President Obama gracefully responds to David letterman regarding Mitt Romney’s comments:
Later in the interview, Obama concluded his take on the Romney video by saying “People understand, I think, that you’re going to make mistakes on the campaign trail. What I think people want to make sure of thought is that you’re not writing off a big chunk of the country.”
UndoubtedlyPresident Obama kept it extremely graceful and classy, like always!
