Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for President Barack Obama, said Wednesday that she found it curious how little speakers at the Republican National Convention invoked the party's platform. Over the last week, Republicans have insisted that their platform — which includes an abortion ban that provides no exceptions — does not necessarily mirror the views of their presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. Cutter told MSNBC that when Democrats craft their platform, it will be one that Obama can support.
"I mean, the one thing that you didn't hear last night from any of these speakers, and it will be interesting to see if we hear it tonight, is about the Republican platform," Cutter said. "They apparently had it in the same vault that they had Mitt Romney's taxes in."
She continued: "The platform we'll put forward next week will represent where the president is, and where he wants to take the country."
