According to the Associated Press (AP) Republican Tea Party (GOTP) former presidential front runner Mittens Romney is defending a TV ad quoting President Barack Obama out of context, and signaling Romney’s ready to admit he’s a slimy politician who’s prepared to do anything in order to be elected.
The ad began airing in New Hampshire this week using audio of then-Senator Obama campaigning in the state in 2008, saying: “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.
The ad fails to point out the President was quoting the campaign of his opponent, 2008 GOP nominee John McCain. Instead, the ad leaves the impression it’s the President who doesn’t want to discuss the economy. It’s a lie and Romney knows it.
Mittens mewed to reporters his campaign distributed the ad with a press release noting the words were originally from Obama’s opponent.
“There was no hidden effort on the part of our campaign. It was instead to point out that what’s sauce for the goose is now sauce for the gander,” Romney said, “This ad points out, now, guess what, it’s your turn. The same lines used on John McCain are now going to be used on you, which is that this economy is going to be your albatross.”
Well, except Mittens that you’re deliberately deceiving the electorate; the fact you told the media outlets the ad was a fake, doesn’t clear you from being a liar.
