DENVER--The controversial secretly recorded video tape of Mitt Romney--where he disparaged 47 percent of the voters as slackers-- did not come up in the Wednesday presidential debate in Denver. Neither President Barack Obama nor moderator Jim Lehrer brought up the subject. Romney chose not to use the debate to explain himself.
I asked Obama campaign spokesman Jen Psaki why the omissions.
Said Psaki, "99 percent of the country knows about it. ...the goal was not to come in and do a check list of complaints."
