“President Obama’s campaign hit a new low today when one of its senior advisers made a reckless and unsubstantiated charge to reporters about Mitt Romney that was so over the top that it calls into question the integrity of their entire campaign. President Obama ought to apologize for the out-of-control behavior of his staff, which demeans the office he holds. Campaigns are supposed to be hard fought, but statements like those made by Stephanie Cutter belittle the process and the candidate on whose behalf she works.”
On the remark Rhoades is referring to:
Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter suggested that Mitt Romney is a Mormon on a conference call with reporters this morning about a Boston Globe report that shows that Romney is, indeed, a member of the Mormon religion. Cutter, in reply to a reporter's question, had said, "What does Romney being a Mormon have to do with anything?"We'll have more on this shocking story as news comes in.
