there have been many so called experts that have faulted President Obama for not having brought up Mitt's 47% remarks. What they failed to realize is that the President was debating a serial liar. If President Obama had brought up the issue during the national debate, he would have given Mitt a free pass to refute those remarks to the American public. So instead the President avoided the issue. That forced Mitt to call on FAUX news after the debate and refute his comment to the old angry white men that watch FAUX news. That doesn't get the air play or have the reach of the debate. So many of the debate watchers who had heard about the remark didn't come away with anything that would indicate Mitt didn't have contempt for those 47% of Americans in the moocher class.
The media and pundits are playing checkers while the President is playing chess.
