Carney Defends Obama Attack On Bain: "Deserves Some Scrutiny"

White House press secretary Jay Carney got involved in campaign matters at today's WH briefing, saying Mitt Romney "deserves some scrutiny" about his business credentials.

At the briefing, ABC's Jake Tapper asks Carney why Obama is assuming that Romney would run the country like a private equity firm since Obama didn't run the country like a community organizer.

"He's running as a businessman who can do for American what he did in private equity. And I think Americans would expect that that credential deserves some scrutiny," Carney said in response.

CARNEY: Well, because the governor himself — the former governor himself as said as much.

He’s running as a businessman who can do for America what he did in private equity. And that, I think — I think Americans would expect that that credential deserves some scrutiny.
