This new Romney commercial is an atrocity:
Did you catch that? The president said, “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.” Pretty damning — the president, in 2008 during the collapse, suggesting that he has a weak economic plan/message.
Only, he didn’t say that. He was quoting John McCain. In its full context, the president said, “Sen. McCain’s campaign actually said, and I quote, ‘If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose’”
What makes it all worse is the Romney campaign is standing by the lie.
Romney senior New Hampshire adviser Tom Rath tells CBS News the ad is “exactly what we want.”
Shameful. And Romney isn’t even the nominee yet.
It’s going to be a hell of a year.
