    Some might argue that President Obama owes his second term to this man—and the president’s excitement upon meeting him suggests Obama might be in that camp himself. Opposition researcher James Carter—the man responsible for the now infamous fundraising video of Mitt Romney abhorring the so-called 47 percent of Americans who are dependent upon government—was greeted with a huge thanks from President Obama backstage at an education event Thursday in Decatur, Georgia. Carter’s cousin is Georgia state Sen. Jason Carter. Fun fact: the two are both grandsons of former president Jimmy Carter.
