You can have my both sides meme when you pry it from my Slate-pitching hands.
This is gross false equivalence.
The recording of Mitt Romney is completely unobstructed and features him alone speaking his mind. There is no selective editing, deceptive pimp costumes, or outside influences. No one is coercing Romney to say incriminating things. It’s just Mitt Romney in his natural habitat. A “quiet room” sans the clanking and clattering of expensive silverware.
Furthermore, this video has not been followed up with an act of congress to defund an innocent organization that aided the poor, although I’m sure that’s what we would see if Romney were elected.
