John Kerry Slams Romney’s ‘Petulant’ Debate Performance

Sen. John Kerry appeared on Wednesday’s Morning Joe, where he shared that, after having played the role of Mitt Romney during President Barack Obama‘s debate prep, he’d have to have an “exorcism of Romney out of my being.”

He didn’t share any “trade secrets” (as in, whether he strolled around the stage while Obama was speaking), but he did say that he found Romney to have been “petulant” during the debate:

It’s time to get really serious about what’s on the table here, and this choice. I don’t… I’m perplexed. I mean, I look at… Mitt Romney, first of all, last night, in my judgment, was petulant. He was characteristically, expediently misleading. And I’ma tell you exactly how. And I think people really need to stop. And you, Joe, you’re, you know… I listen to your show. You career was based on trying to do something serious about the deficit. Mitt Romney is perpetrating a fraud on the American people.

He then panned Romney’s proposed plan to cut taxes, accusing him of being dishonest and “faking” parts of it to the American people. In fact, Kerry went so far as to call Romney’s actions “disqualifying.”
