US anti-tax champ says Obama won reelection by portraying Romney as 'poopy-head'
Washington, Nov. 13 (ANI): Anti-tax champ Grover Norquist has claimed that President Barck Obama won his second term in the White house by portraying Mitt Romney as a "poopy-head," and not because of his economic policies.
The president of Americans for Tax Reform suggested Obama's reelection did not signify a national choice on tax policy, and disputed the notion that Americans chose Obama over Romney because of his repeated argument that wealthy Americans should pay higher rates.
Instead, he said, Obama won on his negative portrayal of the GOP candidate, ABC News reports.
"We just had an election, and the House of Representatives was elected committed to keeping taxes low," Norquist told interviewer Charlie Rose on CBS's "This Morning".
"The president was elected on the basis that he was not Romney and that Romney was a poopy-head, and you should vote against Romney, and he won by two points," Norquist said, referring to Obama's 50 percent to 48 percent margin of victory in the national popular vote.
"But he didn't make the case that we should have higher taxes and higher spending. He kind of sounded like the opposite," he added.
According to the report, Norquist founded Americans for Tax Reform in 1985, and he is known in political circles as the author and keeper of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. (ANI)
