Obama "Redistribution" Video Clip Edited

Well, this is kind of hilarious. When the infamous "47%" Mitt Romney secret video was found to be missing two minutes between part 1 and part 2, the right seized upon it as a disqualification of the videos' contents. Which is a) stupid, and b) not gonna happen. If it were a 45-second clip edited out of context, maybe it would matter. But it was a surreptitiously recorded lengthy pair of videos. There may have been a few missing sentences, but the context is clear. Nothing Romney might have said in those minutes could substantially change what he said, and Romney himself didn't refute anything in the clips.

What Romney did was retort that there was an Obama video out there, where he talked about "redistribution." From 1998, fully 14 years ago. But guess what kids? It was selectively edited, and in this case to remove the context. Surprise!!!

  1. Don't you just love politics?
    Happens on both sides, especially in the digital age.
    It's too bad that neither you or me or most everyone else cannot run for office because we are not saints and have said dumb things in the past. Then your opponent changes what you said.
    Gotta love dirty politics.
