Days after Obama spokesperson Stephanie Cutter was caught making controversial remarks about the terrorist attacks in Libya, the New York Times publishes a profile of the campaign operative to highlight her “take no prisoners” style.
“All Stephanie wants is results,” said an Obama administration aide and friend of Ms. Cutter’s who is not allowed to discuss campaign issues. “She is an old-school, take-no-prisoners political operative. Losing is not tolerated.” (Ms. Cutter has earned the nickname The Ninja at campaign headquarters, since she stealthily inserts herself into battles.)
Other nicknames include “Box Cutter,” and “Warrior Princess.”
Some other fun facts:
- Cutter was the among the first Obama aides to circulate the “Protect Sesame Street” meme on Twitter.
- Cutter helped sell Obamacare in 2010
- Cutter played a key role in developing the “We Can’t Wait” campaign.
