Taylor agreed with O’Donnell’s assessment, adding Romney appeared “paternalistic” and criticized him for using a “derisive word” like “Obamacare” to describe the President’s Affordable Health Care act.

Another one O’Donnell’s guests, Mark Thompson, said that Romney appeared “culturally ignorant” after referring to an African-American serving in his “kitchen cabinet” when he was governor in Massachusetts.

“To talk about being in the kitchen and not talk about an African-American actually being in your cabinet is really not a good metaphor to use with African-Americans,” he said disapprovingly.
