The president didn't let liberals down. The ideology they share with him did.

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.
