Fox News co-host Andrea Tantaros on Tuesday accused President Barack Obama of verbally undressing his Republican challenger during their final presidential debate.
“The reason why that line was so important, when he [Mitt Romney] said, ‘stop attacking me instead of offering a plan’ is because it’s the theme of the whole campaign,” she said. “Whether it’s foreign affairs or the economy, the president and his advisers have chosen to attack Mitt Romney in the most — not just heinous ways by calling him a felon and all these other things — but in the tone they attack him in.”
“Mr. ‘Hope and Change’ has gone to Mr. ‘Big Bird and Binders’ and it’s not a very good look,” Tantaros continued. “It’s turning off women. Every woman has worked with a man like that or been spoken to the way President Obama sarcastically and snidely undressed Mitt Romney on air with that tone. And I’ll tell you what, it’s why he is losing women.”
Tantaros made similar remarks about Vice President Joe Biden after his debate with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).
“You know the guy that puts his finger in your face, the guy that sort of dresses you down, who knows more than you do — hey, honey, go make some coffee,” Tantaros said on Fox News, referring to Biden’s debate performance. “That’s how I took it. You know what I thought? If he’s gonna behave that way in public with millions of people watching, how does he behave in private?”
