Plouffe: good morning George
Stephanopoulos: are Americans better
off than they were four years ago?
Plouffe: we’re recovering from a
Stephanopoulos: that doesn’t sound good
Plouffe: Mitt Romney is promising nothing
but tax cut fairy dust
Stephanopoulos: a lot of people
Plouffe: Romney will enact policies
that caused the recession in the first place
Stephanopoulos: so we’re not better off?
Plouffe: Obama is investing in batteries!
Stephanopoulos: ironic that he’s
running against an android
Stephanopoulos: Pluffy should Obama
apologize to America
Plouffe: for what Stephy - health care
or ending the wars?
Stephanopoulos: yes those things
Plouffe: the GOP is only offering tired
platitudes like tricke-down economics
Stephanopoulos: Paul Ryan says he’s
going to save Medicare not raid it
Plouffe: he raided it!
Stephanopoulos: yes well know about that
Plouffe: Paul Ryan is sounding the
Second Coming of Claude Pepper
Stephanopoulos: Verily he will
Return Riding a White Golf Cart
Plouffe: Obama cut waste and Paul Ryan
would bankrupt Medicare
Stephanopoulos: Romney said under
Obama lazy people would get free money
Plouffe: it is interesting that Romney
can only win by lying and then
lying some more
Stephanopoulos: is it a racial dog whistle
Plouffe: all I know is every time that ad
runs on my tv my cocker spaniel hides
under the bed
Plouffe: In his acceptance speech Romney
never mentioned our troops or
Afghanistan - does Romney even care?
Stephanopoulos: what about Clint Eastwood
Plouffe: that was weird and hilarious
[ break ]
Stephanopoulos: how did the GOP
Will: undecided voters learned Republicans
want to cut taxes which I think we already knew
Brazile: I suspect a number of people
were very confused - and that was
before Clint Eastwood channeled
Daryl Hannah in Legal Eagles
Healy: we learned that Mitt Romney is
secretly a human being
Stephanopoulos: why not have testimonials
From people who like Romney instead
of Clint Eastwood doing a crazy-ass
version of Bob Newhart?
Healy: well I hope people go online
and look up examples of Mitt acting normal
Dowd: no one cares about a candidate’s
Stephanopoulos: are we better of than
we were four years ago?
Burton: we’ve created 4 million jobs
Stephanopoulos: but we lost 6 million
Burton: we heard Mitt loved his
family but what is he’s going to do
for other families?
Healy: he was very specific - he’s going
to cut taxes again, repeal Obamacare
and drill for oil off Florida
Will: don’t be afraid - vote for Romney
Brazile: no be afraid - be very afraid
Dowd: the real question is will the
country be better off four years from now?
Burton: in 2008 Obama said he was going
to deliver health care, end the wars,
fix the economy and rebuild America and he did!
Stephanopoulos: did he?
Burton: oh yeah!
Stephanopoulos: thanks for coming everyone
