Earlier this year, Romney aired an ad where showing Obama saying “if we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose”. Which was, of course, Obama quoting McCain, not Obama confessing weakness on the economy. When pressed about this deceptive ad, Romney’s team offered no apologies, and said the ad was “intentional” and that it “worked”.
Yesterday, Mitt Romney said he is “not concerned about the very poor”. Not long thereafter, as this quote got widely circulated, he followed that up with this:
“No no no no. I — no, no. You’ve got to take the whole sentence, all right, as opposed to saying, and then change it just a little bit, because then it sounds very different,” said Romney.
I say we stick with his original policy. So you heard it, folks: Mitt Romney says he’s not concerned about the very poor. I’m sure that quote was “intentional”.
