A major theme of the just-concluded Republican convention was “disappointment” in President Obama, a soft-touch approach meant to woo disaffected voters who supported Obama four years ago. But on Sunday, a senior Obama campaign adviser said that such disappointment does not exist.
“I don't think that there is voter disappointment,” said Robert Gibbs on CNN’s State of the Union. “I think voters understand that we have been through a traumatic economic experience in the country unlike anything we've ever seen.”
He added: “Voters understand it took us years and years of tremendously bad decisions by running up huge debts, and providing huge tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires that didn't create jobs, and they understand it is going to take us a while to get out of that mess. And I think that’s what the choice is.”
