In the news recently: Feelings.
No, not the Morris Albert song. The president’s. Somebody hurt them, if you’re to believe Bill Clinton.
The former president stood in for the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue at a fundraiser recently, and he related something Obama said to him, the Weekly Standard reports:
“I saw the reports of Governor Romney’s latest ad saying that the president had allowed Jeep to move to China,” said Clinton. “And so this morning, before he left Florida and went back to Washington, he said, ‘You know, of all the things Governor Romney has said that probably hurts my feelings the most.'”
Of course, what Romney said was true: Jeep is going to start making vehicles in China. They aren’t moving jobs to China, they’re adding jobs in China, and not adding those jobs in the U.S. Which means fewer Jeeps exported to China. Which means fewer Jeeps made in the U.S. Which means … fewer jobs in the U.S.?
Anyway, the point is that Romney hurt Obama’s feelings. I wonder how Obama is going to feel in a week.
