Obama campaign vets push back against Bloomberg

snip
Barack Obama is staying quiet as the 2020 Democratic primary heats up, so his former campaign aides are speaking up to correct the record about his relationship with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

snip
Jon Favreau, a co-host of Pod Save America who worked as Obama’s speechwriter, said Tuesday that he remembered being “annoyed” by the “tepid” endorsement when it was published. “It basically could have been a fucking Romney ad,” he added in a podcast this week.

snip
Bloomberg did not endorse a candidate in the 2008 presidential election. In 2012, he endorsed Obama over his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, citing the president’s commitment to combating climate change. But he also took shots at the Democratic incumbent, writing in an editorial that he “devoted little time and effort to developing and sustaining a coalition of centrists” to enact his agenda. He also said Obama “engaged in partisan attacks and has embraced a divisive populist agenda focused more on redistributing income than creating it.”

From Obama's 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe:

1. I was wondering why Obama didn't say something either...

 

Cuz the way Bloomberg makes it look in his ads it's like Obama was part of the campaign, etc. He's totally manipulating the clips to make himself look like he's got an endorsement. I think the ads should be pulled for being false, but when did false advertizing in politics EVER get quashed?

I purposefully dont have cable to avoid the ads, but a couple of Bloombergs have slipped through Hulu and Netflix too >

3. Plouffe's last line from his tweet speaks volumes

 

The power of saturation advertising. Unfortunately, some on here are buying it too. Does not mean voters in the GE will.

4. So now you're trashing highly respected Obama people

 

And you can't count. Like I said you never have anything of value to contribute. On to ignore you go.

Bub-bye.
