ASTONISHINGLY DENIES FELONY SMEAR OF MITT
This guy is so out of touch with reality it’s scary
This one speaks for itself. Fresh off the heals of O’s “hardhitting” interview with Entertainment Tonight, during which he said (with a straight face) that he didn’t think anyone believes he’s running a negative campaign, the Liar-in-Chief had this exchange with White House correspondent Nancy Cordes of CBS:
Cordes: As you know, your opponent recently accused you of waging a campaign filled with anger and hate. You told Entertainment Tonight that anyone who attends your rallies can see that they are not angry or hate-filled affairs. But in recent weeks, your campaign has suggested repeatedly – without proof – that Mr. Romney might be hiding something in his tax returns.
They have suggested that Mr. Romney might be a felon for the way that he handed over power of Bain Capital. And your campaign and the White House have declined to condemn an ad by one of your top supporters that links Mr. Romney to a woman’s death from cancer. Are you comfortable with the tone being set with your campaign? Have you asked them to change their tone when it comes to defining Mr. Romney?
Liar-in-Chief: Well, first of all I am not sure that all of those characterizations that you laid out there were accurate. For example, nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon. And, I think that what is absolutely true is if you watch me on the campaign trail, here’s what I’m talking about. I’m talking about how to put Americans back to work.
Really, O? Here’s your deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter:
Call me picky, O, but Stephanie clearly said Mitt may have misrepresented his position to the SEC, which in her words, “is a felony.”
As is his pattern, O tried to parse his words in answer to Cordes’s question. Notice how he responded by saying, “No one accused Mr. Romney of being a felon.” If we take “accuse” to mean that one must say “He is” or “You are” in order to accuse someone of something, he would be correct. However, Cordes didn’t use the word “accused.” She correctly stated that Cutter suggested that Romney might be a felon. It’s no different than Harry Reid’s disgracefully claim that Romney hadn’t pay taxes for ten years because “the word is out.”
Funny – here’s a guy who’s been running from the press since March 6, and just ups and decides to trot out and answer a few questions from the White House press corps today – only after the pot boiled over following a suggestion by one of the Obamabots that Entertainment Tonight and People Magazine are equal in journalistic legitimacy to the the reporters covering the President of the United States.
He’s scared folks; you can see it in his eyes – and you can hear it in his voice.
