Last night at the House Democrats’ retreat in Philadelphia, President Barack Obama couldn’t resist taking a pot shot at former rival for the presidency, Mitt Romney. “A former presidential candidate” was “suddenly deeply concerned about poverty,” Obama said. “That’s great. Let’s do something about it.” Romney didn’t take long to respond to Obama’s jab. Check out his Tweet:
Mr. Obama, wonder why my concern about poverty? The record number of poor in your term, and your record of failure to remedy.— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) January 30, 2015
“Mr. Obama, wonder why my concern about poverty? The record number of poor in your term, and your record of failure to remedy,” he wrote. Speculation had run rampant lately that Mitt Romney was eyeing another Presidential run - until this morning's announcement that he will not seek his party's nomination.
