White House Shoots Back Over ‘Silver Spoon’ Comment

At a Thursday briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that anyone who thinks Obama’s “silver spoon” comment was about them “might be a little oversensitive.”

Mitt Romney earlier today responded to Obama’s “silver spoon in mouth” remark by saying he wasn’t “going to apologize for [his] dad and his success in life.”
