After dismissing Mitt Romney, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney used President Obama’s victory as material for a comeback to The Washington Post’s George Will’s criticism of him.

“I would simply say that Mitt Romney didn’t win Ohio,” Carney said with a smile when asked to respond to Romney’s comment that he lost Ohio because of a failure to reach out to minority voters.

And then he was reminded of a remark George Will made over the weekend. “I will do many things for my country and my profession,” Will said on ABC when commenting on Carney’s doomsday predictions about the sequester. “I will not take seriously Mr. Carney.”

Carney countered by noting that Will had wrongly predicted that Mitt Romney would carry Minnesota as part of a landslide victory in November.

“I will continue to take George Will seriously,” he concluded.
