In his latest campaign ad, President Barack Obama tries to blunt attacks over something he said by claiming he didn't say what he said while showing an image of him saying exactly what he said. Go ahead and read that again but it won't make any more sense the second time.
In the ad set to air in nine swing states, Mr. Obama is seen at the press conference in which he uttered the now infamous and ridiculous opinion that "The private sector is doing fine." Meanwhile an announcer claims that presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney and his "billionaire allies will spend millions to distort the president's words."
Distort? There has not only been no distortion, there has been no need for distortion. The American people are well aware that the private sector is not doing fine and anyone, including the president of the United States, who says otherwise is telling a lie of historic proportions.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the Obama Campaign did not publicize this new ad nor preview it for journalists the way it and other campaigns do with most new ads. But it is available online at the very Obama-friendly Huffington Post.
