Republicans are calling Vivek Ramaswamy 'Obama 2.0'

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Republicans are calling Vivek Ramaswamy 'Obama 2.0'.

Reacting to the attack, Vivek Ramaswamy replied: “Give me a hug like you did to Obama, and you’ll help elect me just like you did to Obama. Give me the damn hug, brother.”

Ramaswamy was referring to a 2012 incident when Chris Christie was accused of “hugging” Obama during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy which hit days before the 2012 presidential election. It’s a claim that Christie has kept denying since 2012 saying: “I didn’t hug him.”

Meanwhile, Jen Psaki, who served the Biden administration as the White House Press Secretary noted on X: “Skinny guy with a funny name” sounds very….Obamaesque.”

Other X users, including the DeSantis campaign, also pointed out the similarity.
Later during the debate, Chris Christie referred to the comment as he growled: "Hold on, I've had enough already tonight of a guy who sounds like ChatGPT." He was reacted to Mr Ramaswamy's comment that the climate change agenda is a hoax.

"He stands up here, and the last person in one of these debates, Brett, who stood in the middle of the stage and said, 'What's a skinny guy with an odd last name doing up here' was Barack Obama. And I'm afraid we're dealing with the same type of amateur tendencies tonight," said Mr Christie, 60.

During the debate, Vivek Ramaswamy’s introduction which included the infamous lines “skinny kid with a funny name” reminded many folks of name that is as popular as Satan at Republican conventions: Barack Obama.

The opening statement drew ire from both sides of the aisle. Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie attacked Ramaswamy saying: “"I've had enough, already tonight, of a guy who sounds like ChatGPT standing up here,” Christie said. “And the last person in one of these debates ... who stood in the middle of the stage and said, 'What's a skinny guy with an odd last name doing up here - Barack Obama. And I'm afraid we're dealing with the same type of amateur standing on the stage tonight.”

"Let me just address the question that is on everybody's mind at home tonight. Who the heck is this skinny guy with a funny last name, and what the heck is he doing in the middle of this debate stage?" said Vivek Ramaswamy, grinning.

"I'll tell you, I'm not a politician. You're right about that. I'm an entrepreneur. My parents came to this country with no money 40 years ago. I have gone on to found multi-billion dollar companies. That is the American dream. And I am genuinely worried that that American dream will not exist for our two sons and their generation unless we do something about it."
