The Fact Checker (Washington Post): …. There are few original ideas in politics, just old arguments. We were reminded of this as we considered the ruckus over comments by President Obama that his GOP rival, former governor Mitt Romney, criticized as an attack on free enterprise. Romney immediately began jabbing Obama on the campaign trail and the Romney campaign rushed out an attack ad focused on Obama’s words – though, as we shall see, it sliced and diced the president’s quote to make it seem much worse.
…. The biggest problem with Romney’s ad is that it leaves out just enough chunks of Obama’s words – such as a reference to “roads and bridges”- so that it sounds like Obama is attacking individual initiative. The ad deceivingly cuts away from Obama speaking in order to make it sees as if the sentences follow one another, when in fact eight sentences are snipped away.
Suddenly, the word “that” appears as if it is referring to a business, rather than (apparently) to roads and bridges.
…. by focusing on one ill-phrased sentence, Romney and his campaign have decided to pretend that Obama is talking about something different – and then further extrapolated it so that it becomes ridiculous.
