Obama Campaign’s Advice for Romney: ‘Stop Whining’

Romney replies, “No, you stop whining”
Politics • Views: 28,694

Folks, the gloves are officially off in this presidential campaign: Team Obama to Romney: Stop Whining.

Mitt Romney isn’t going to get an apology from President Obama or any of his surrogates about suggestions that he may have committed a felony about his time at Bain Capital in Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

Instead, Rahm Emanuel and deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter—who first suggested last week that Romney may have broken the law—offered this advice today to Romney: “Stop whining.”

“Give it up about Stephanie. Don’t worry about that,” said Emanuel, Obama’s former chief of staff and current mayor of Chicago. “What are you going to do when the Chinese leader says something? Or Putin says (something critical) to you? You’re going to whine…You cannot do that. And as Mitt Romney said once to his own Republican colleagues: Stop whining. I’ll give him his own advice: Stop whining.”

It should also be mentioned that Mitt Romney really has no right to demand apologies for negative campaigning; in his own campaign he’s been questioning Barack Obama’s patriotism and his love for America, taking quotes way out of context and lying outright, and repeating every crazy wingnut meme, including the ridiculous “apology tour” and “bowing to the Saudis” nonsense. And the President hasn’t been demanding apologies for any of it, even though he’d be justified.

Romney’s outrage rings hollow.
