He called the President 'boy'

  • Just tuned into a little of the Sunday morning news discussion on various networks. The big issue seems to be whether or not VP Biden was disrespectful of Congressman Ryan in the Wednesday debate.
  • Yes he was. But I haven't forgotten what Mitt Romney said to President Obama. He said the President is like a boy who doesn't tell the truth.
  • "Look, I've got five boys. I'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping I'll believe it."
  • He called the President 'boy' -- to his face.
  • With 70 million witnesses.
  • There really isn't anything more offensive for a white man to say to a black man.
  • Watch the video a few times. I think this was far more outrageous than anything he said at the 47 percent dinner in May.
  • People complain about t-shirts at rallies worn by Romney fans. But please, this was said by the candidate himself. It didn't seem spontaneous or off-the-cuff.
  • After the debate Ann Romney called the President a child too.
  • This isn't an accident, these are strategies. Biden's condescension relative to Ryan was a response.
  • You wanted acting in debates, you're getting it. But come on, there are two sets of actors here.
