Mitt Romney has accused President Obama of being "out of touch" in recent remarks and press releases, suggesting that his"years of flying around on Air Force One" have left him disconnected from the public. In a speech, Romney also told Pennsylvanians that Obama "spent too much time at Harvard."
Obama campaign manager Jim Messina told TPM in a conference call that the "elitist" label would be a tough sell from Romney given his own background.
"Simply hypocrisy," he said. "I mean, come on. Romney's also a Harvard graduate."
Calling Romney the "beneficiary of a broken tax system," he added, "Any time Romney trying to say someone's out of touch is a little difficult when he's shopping for car elevators."
