Classless Obama Exploits Down Syndrome Woman
No, this woman is not who Romney was talking about with his 47% comment. And Obama actually knows it. He's just so desperate to keep the subject off of his miserable record as president, that he'll exploit anyone. Hey, wasn't it Obama who was making fun of Down Syndrome patients a couple of years ago? Why yes, I believe it was.
In its latest effort to slap Mitt Romney's "47 percent" comment, the Obama campaign on Monday tapped a young woman with Down syndrome to pull at the heartstrings of undecided voters.On the other hand, this woman is precisely who Romney was talking about.
The Obama-Biden campaign's web page featured a "letter of the week" from a 25-year-old woman who wrote that "I am one of the 47% of Americans who fall under Mitt Romney's definition of 'entitled' and 'unable to take responsibility for my life.' I have Down syndrome."
The letter comes on the heel of the campaign's TV ad playing in battleground states that uses the audio of Romney dismissing efforts to win over 47 percent of voters dedicated to Obama because they receive some kind of government assistance. While the Romney campaign said the context is about the election and not how he will approach the nation as president, the Obama campaign has made the case that Romney won't look out for those who need help.
