It’s obvious Barack Obama would never distort Mitt Romney’s record. Why, he’s been so fair about how Bain Capital is portrayed what with that $100 million spent so far distorting Romney’s record.
President Obama slammed his opponent Mitt Romney on Monday night, accusing the presumptive GOP nominee of trying to “distort my vision.”
The attack, which came three days after both candidates took an extended timeout because of the Colorado theater shooting, signaled that the presidential-campaign slugfest has resumed.
“Frankly, the other side can’t sell their ideas so what they’re going to do is distort my vision,” Obama told a fundraising crowd in Oakland, Calif. during a three-day swing to the west coast.
OK, so go ahead an sell your record. We’re waiting.
“Earlier today, Gov. Romney was at it again,” Obama continued to booing from the crowd. “Knowingly twisting my words to suggest I don’t value small business. In politics, we all tolerate a certain amount of spin. I understand those are the games that get played in political campaigns. Although, when folks like omit entire sentences of what you said, they start kind of splicing and dicing, you may have gone a little over the edge there.”
And we know how Obama and his goons would never distort anything or omit crucial details.
Obama cannot escape the fact his owns words were captured for all to see. There’s no spinning out of this.
Miraculously in just 10 days he’s become a free market champion. Funny how that works.
“I believe the free market is the greatest source of prosperity in our history,” but any business owner will also tell you success requires workers with the right skills and education, and a strong middle class that can buy products and services, Obama said.
“Mr. Romney’s plan is to gut these investments just so he can give more tax breaks to millionaires and those who are shipping jobs overseas,” he said. “I’ve got to tell you, Oakland, he is dead wrong.
But don’t forget, Romney’s the one distorting records.
In another stunning reversal, Obama admitted he’s not perfect. Quick, someone get the defibrillator for Chris Matthews.
“I told you in 2008 that I wasn’t a perfect man and I wouldn’t be a perfect president … but that I would wake up every single day fighting as hard as I can to make your lives a little bit better, because I saw myself in you,” he said. “And Oakland, I have kept that promise every day … I have been thinking about you and fighting as hard as I know how.”
Must be tough to admit he’s not perfect.
