Washington, Oct 22: Republicans have dismissed Barack Obama’s new ‘Romnesia’ claims, saying it is nothing but a distraction from more important issues that the President is unable to defend.
“The very fact that the president has to utter a term like that just is a glaring example of how small the campaign is. The Obama campaign has not been one about the future. It hasn’t been talking about what they’d do over the next four years to really help rebuild the economy,” Romney spokesman Kevin Madden told CBS News.
“Instead, they have reduced themselves to very small attacks like ‘Romnesia,’ which is really quite frankly silly for the president of the United States, as the leader of the free world, to begin uttering,” Madden added.
According to Huff Post, another Republican, Senator Marco Rubio, said that the “Romnesia” line showed Obama’s lack of vision.
“That fires up his base, people who are going to vote for him anyway,” Rubio told ABC news.
“But for the rest of Americans who are trying to make up their mind who to vote for, what they’re wondering is, ‘Well, that’s very cute Mr. President, but what are you going to do for the future?’,” he added. (ANI)
