Sometimes it’s simply obvious. I mean slap-in-the-face, palm-to-the-forehead simple as that. Try to follow this without retching:
The Obama campaign has now put out an ad:
It accuses Mitt Romney of “saying anything to get elected” by, well…quoting the president’s own words.
The ad shows the governor reading from a piece of paper the infamous “you didn’t build that” line from last week, followed by a slide that says (get this): “The only problem? That’s not what he said.”
Um… but that is precisely what he said.
Here’s the point in a post like this that I’d usually link to and/or imbed a video of the president actually saying that. Only I don’t have to, because if you keep watching the president’s own ad, at forty seconds in, you see…the president saying that.
Does your leader, the Commander in Chief, the most powerful man in the world think that you, the average voter is not only so stupid that you don’t see though his pitiful attempt to distract you that he put his own quote in the ad? You know, the one that Mitt Romney apparently made up or something?
Cayman Island and Swiss bank accounts…”outsourcing”…vulture capital…1%er…call Mitt Romney anything you want, but at least he respects you, the American voter enough not to think you’re so stupid that you wouldn’t notice in his own ad that he is lying…
