Obama is going to criticize Romney tonight on the David Letterman show in reference to Romney’s 47% comments, and Obama is going to claim that he doesn’t divide people, that as president he represents everyone:
“One of the things I learned as president is you represent the entire country. If you want to be president, you have to work for everyone.”
”All of us make mistakes…What people want to know though is you’re not writing off a big chunk of the country because the way our democracy works…This is a big country. And people disagree a lot but one thing I’ve never tried to do and I think none of us can do in public office is suggest that because someone doesn’t agree with me that they’re victims or they’re unpatriotic.”
“There are not a lot of people out there who think they’re victims. There are not a lot of people who think they’re entitled to something.”
“We’ve got some obligations to each other, and there’s nothing wrong with us giving each other a helping hand so that that single mom’s kid, even after all the work she’s done, can afford to go to college.”
After reading the above and getting disgusted with it, Levin reminds us of how Obama’s comments in Danville, VA are all about attacking and dividing us. And he plays them so that we don’t forget.
And then in a moment of honesty, Levin said that he wakes up at 2 and 3 in the morning worried about what’s going to happen on election day, but not because Mitt Romney might win. He says he knows the country will go forward if Romney wins. He’s worried about what will happen to it if Obama gets reelected, what it will look like for his children and grandchildren.
This is a great clip. Listen below:
