Carter: Obama thanked grandson for '47 percent' video

President Obama thanked Jimmy Carter's grandson for his work in making public the secretly recorded "47 percent" Mitt Romney video, the former president said in a CNN interview airing Thursday.

"When James went to meet President Obama, President Obama ran across the room, embraced him and thanked him profusely for his time, by the way," Carter said.


The video, which shows Romney describing nearly half of Americans as "dependent" on government, created a national controversy and was thought to deal a serious blow to the Republican nominee's presidential chances.

"It was something {Romney} could not deny and it stuck with him for the rest of the election and I think it was a major factor, if not the major factor," he said, adding he believed it won Obama the election.

Obama met with Carter's grandson while in Atlanta for a post-State of the Union rally to champion his universal pre-K initiative.

4. I also thank the bartendar who taped it

Wherever he or she is at this moment we all say thank you. It could have cost you your lively hood and if they could find out who you are your life. I am sure they are still looking for you. remain anonymous and the smile on your face election night must have been the biggest in the USA.

6. Jimmy Carter

One of the greatest presidents ever. He almost single-handedly broke the back of OPEC and their stranglehold on oil prices in the late 1970s early 1980s.

No wonder the neocons hate him----he was the last president to stand up to the oil companies.
