Apparently President Obama really dislikes Mitt Romney.
When President Obama talked about Mitt Romney in recent months, "aides picked up a level of anger he never had for (Hillary) Clinton or (John) McCain," writes Politico's Glenn Thrush in Obama's Last Stand, which will be out on Aug. 20.
Thrush notes that Obama "began campaign preparations feeling neutral about Romney, but like the former governor's GOP opponents in 2008 and 2012, he quickly developed a genuine disdain for the man," according to excerpts released by Politico.
Maybe Obama feels this way because he sees that Romney has a strong chance of winning. There was a strong chance for Hillary to beat Obama, but no need to dislike her because she was the presumptive nominee all along. John McCain ran a weak campaign throughout.
