Obama: Romney Campaign Playing “A Little Dirty”

romney-obamaPresident Obama joined a group of former NBA stars at a fundraiser at New York’s Lincoln Center Wednesday night. With  basketball legends sitting nearby – “It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person,” Obama said – the president made a few obligatory remarks about opponent Mitt Romney’s tax and economic plans. And then he addressed the presidential horse race – or basketball game.

“I can’t resist a basketball analogy,” Obama told the crowd, according to a White House pool report. “We are in the fourth quarter. We’re up by a few points but the other side is coming on strong and they play a little dirty.”

“We’ve got a few folks on our team in foul trouble. We’ve got a couple of injuries, and I believe that they’ve got one last run in them.”

“I’d say there’s about seven minutes to go in the game. And [Michael Jordan’s] competitiveness is legendary, and nobody knows better than Michael that if you’ve got a little bit of a lead and there’s about seven minutes to go – that’s when you put them away.”
