All I can do is give Soledad O’Brien a standing ovation for asking the tough questions in this interview.
On Tuesday morning, she spoke at length with Romney campaign senior adviser Bay Buchanan, also a regular CNN guest, about the candidate’s “47 percent” comment that leaked on Monday night.
Soledad slaughtered every possible hope of Bay Buchanan winning this argument from the moment it started. The bottom line is that Mitt Romney’s statements were factually inaccurate and showed just how much of an ass he really is. Buchanan tried HARD to steer the conversation off of the ’47 percent’ to other figures such as food stamp recipients. It didn’t work.
Here’s the bottom line. As Soledad stated, according to David Brooks of The New York Times, the majority of those receiving government assistance are white male Republicans with high school diplomas.
Watch this clip for yourself and tell us what you think. Soledad has been bringing the heat lately on her show!
