Obama to Jimmy Carter’s Grandson: Thank you for ’47 Precent’ Tape
It turns out that former President Jimmy Carter’s grandson, James Carter IV of Atlanta,Â isÂ the political researcher who found the secret ’47 Percent’ videotape in whichÂ Mitt RomneyÂ made disparaging comments aboutÂ “47 percent of theÂ population that depends on government,”Â comments thatÂ led toÂ the undoing of his presidential bid.
So when President Obama saw James Carter IV at a political event in GeorgiaÂ last week he “ran acrosss the room”Â to” embrace him” andÂ thank the 35 year old “profusely,” according to James Carter IV’s cousin,Â Senator Jason Carter’s comments to Politico.
“Thank you, thank you so much,” Obama said.
