Jimmy Carter: Obama 'ran across the room' to thank my grandson for finding the '47 percent' video

The grandson of a former president has finally been thanked for his role in what some say helped President Obama win re-election. At this point, many might be asking, “Chris Christie’s grandfather was a U.S. president?” No, I’m talking about Jimmy Carter, whose grandson unearthed the “47 percent” Romney video.

Last night Carter recounted the story of how Obama recently thanked his grandson:

Former President Jimmy Carter told CNN host Piers Morgan that President Barack Obama “ran across the room” and embraced James Carter — the former president’s grandson — to thank him for the infamous secretly taped “47 percent” video of Mitt Romney.

Obama and James Carter met for the first time last week while the president was in Atlanta.

“When James went to meet President Obama, President Obama ran across the room, embraced him and thanked him profusely for his time, by the way,” Carter told Morgan.

The original “six degrees of separation” between the Obama presidency and the Carter presidency have been decreasing at around one degree for each year Obama has been in office (according to the same scientists who supply Al Gore with his data). This knocked it down another degree — one more to go before full fusion (you’ll know we’re there if George starts selling his own brand of beer).

In the clip below, Carter said the “47 percent” recording was a major factor — if not the factor — in securing Obama’s re-election.
