The economy is collapsing. Our embassies are being overrun. Our diplomats are being murdered, and our own government is blaming it on the First Amendment. And Obama doesn’t know what to do about any of it, except for his usual plan of lying his ass off. So he and his enablers in the media hope you’ll be distracted by Romney’s “gaffe” of criticizing the Democrats’ strategy. They hope you’ll be offended that Romney pointed out what the Dems have been telling you your whole life: You need the government to provide for you, and you can’t go a single day without a handout. They hope you’re as credulous as the people who voted for them last time.
I mentioned the whole flap to a guy at work today. He said that Romney’s statement did disqualify him to be president in Obama’s eyes. Since Romney told the truth, he can’t be like Obama, ergo, not presidential.
I about fell off my chair.
This is backfiring badly already. I predict the media abruptly changes the subject within a couple of days, tops.
Incidentally, I think Romney has handled this perfectly. Even NPR appeared to have a bit of grudging respect for him refusing to back down by the afternoon broadcast.
