President Obama Stays Charming, Slams Romney's '47 Percent' Comments On "Letterman"
President Obama made his seventh appearance on "Late Night With David Letterman" last night. Check out the dapper Commander In Chief breaking down the recent attacks on him & his supporters from Clint Eastwood & Mitt Romney...
Starting at the 7 minute mark, President Obama chatted up David Letterman about all the recent gaffes on the other side. After a leaked video this week showed Mitt Romney giving a speech at a fundraiser, the country heard Mitt ignorantly saying that 47% of Americans don't pay income taxes and many Obama supporters think they are entitled to handouts.
Pres. Obama responded last night saying, “There’s nothing wrong with us giving each other a helping hand....When I won in 2008, 47% 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.’”
“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."
And when Pres. O first entered the stage, Letterman asked him if he'd first like to say anything to the empty chair next to him. Ha!
