    That’s gotta be one of the most dishonest political ads I’ve ever seen. And I’m an Obama supporter who thinks that both Romney and Ryan are lying crooks.

    Honestly–every one of the quotes that the editors spliced in was taken out of context.

    “I like being able to fire people” > His point was that when you have the ability to change doctors (or fire them), they will be more accountable to you (I think that’s what his point was)

    “I tell ya what–ten thousand bucks?” > OK, this one wasn’t used out of context, so I am wrong in saying that EVERY quote was

    “I’m not concerned about the very poor” > He says that the rich have obvious tax advantages and the very poor have existing government support programs, so his concern in that quote was about middle class people who have access to neither the assistance that the very poor do or to the advantages that the rich do, not that he doesn’t care about poor people

    “And so my job is not to worry about those people” > This is referring to his job as a candidate, NOT as POTUS (if elected). He’s right–I am sure that in any campaign, candidates have to write off a swath of voters and not make a serious investment to sway them. I’m sure the OFA team has written off a swath of very conservative voters as well.

    “I’m Mitt Romney, and I approved this message” > Obviously, he did not approve the re-cut of the message.

    Look, Romney and Ryan have made a point out of lying every time they open their mouth. Ryan’s convention speech will, I hope, be an embarrassment to him personally and to the Republican party for a long, long time to come.

    But, honestly, Democrats shouldn’t stoop to the same level. This is a winnable election, there’s no need to be idiots about it…
