Their arrogance blinds them.
Via The Hill:
The White House said Saturday that President Obama wants to have a “highbrow debate” with Mitt Romney, even as it touted a new ad hitting the GOP candidate’s business record and mocking his singing of “America the Beautiful.”
Deputy Communications Director Jen Psaki told reporters in a gaggle aboard Air Force One that Obama wanted to focus on issues “the American people actually care about.”
But Psaki said the Obama campaign’s attacks on Romney’s business background as former head of private equity firm Bain Capital were fair game.
“Of course the President wants to have a highbrow debate about these policy issues and what the American people actually care about,” she said.
