Now that the presidential election is down to Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, they can turn their attention to each other. Fellow politicians can play a large role in their respective candidate's campaign. Here are some of the digs that have been made in recent days.
* A group linked to Karl Rove, Crossroads, has released a video that takes aim at the president, according to The Ticket. It highlights Obama's penchant for being a little more hip than presidents past. The ad states, "Four years ago America elected the biggest celebrity in the world. And America got one cool president," and asks voters "After four years of a celebrity president is your life any better?"
* Vice President Joe Biden told a group at New York University that Romney would put the U.S. back "into the mess President Obama has dug us out of." He went on to emphasize what Obama has accomplished, saying, "If you are looking for a bumper sticker to sum up how President Obama has handled what we inherited, it's pretty simple: Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive,"
* "This week the president traveled across the country on taxpayers' dime at a cost of $179,000 an hour insisting the Congress fix a problem that we were already working on. Frankly, I think this is beneath the dignity of the White House," Speaker of the House John Boehner said on Obama's recent trip to advocate preventing interest rates on federal student loans from skyrocketing, according to The Hill..
* DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Romney would bring back the "failed policies" of President George W. Bush, according to the Chicago Tribune. She added "President Obama inherited an economy that was on the brink. Thanks to his strong leadership, he prevented us from sinking into a second great depression, and has begun to turn things around."
