    Obama Campaign Sends Around Misleading DNC Video on GOP Debate

    So... Team Obama has tried pity, our work is not finished, Bush 43 and the BS below as 2012 tactics so far.

    Being a little thin on having anything substantive to show, they're searching for their Houdini Moment(s), like Hope and Change and Yes We Can. Problem is there is a record this time around that makes such statements look idiotic.

    Lies from the Obama camp must be expected because Obama has only his dick in hand to run with in 2012. Obama cannot run on issues, economics, unemployment, foreign policy, and certainly not ObamaKare... as the 2010 election was clear people want it repealed.

    At (the) Republican debate, the seven candidates talked about unemployment, taxes, regulations, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s talk of a goal of 5% GDP growth, the individual mandate in the health care bill, the Independent Medicare Advisory Board, welfare reform, the Tea Party, currency policy, the National Labor Relations Board, Boeing, TARP, the auto bailout, Rep. Paul Ryan’s Medicare proposal, former Gov. Mitt Romney’s health care program in Massachusetts, raising the debt ceiling, raising the retirement age for Social Security, the role of religion in public life, the 10th amendment, Libya, Afghanistan, and so on.

    But President Obama’s 2012 campaign is sending out a DNC video suggesting the candidates spoke only about sharia law, an anti-gay-marriage amendment, repealing health care, Sarah Palin, and the space program.

    But the video, which Messina calls a “highlight reel” and the DNC titled “What in the world are they talking about?” selectively uses clips from the 2-hour forum suggesting that the candidates were focused on idiotic issues, or battles from the past, when all of the topics the video hammers the Republicans for talking about were ones they were asked about at the forum.
    Team Honest Obama's handwerk.


    Not much in the ideas Dept for Obama to talk about is there? Perhaps shovel ready jobs.

    Unemployment (Nope)
    taxes (Nope)
    regulations (Nope... to many already)
    former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s talk of a goal of 5% GDP growth (Nope)
    the individual mandate in the health care bill (Nope)
    the Independent Medicare Advisory Board (Nope)
    welfare reform (Nope)
    the Tea Party (LOL)
    currency policy
    the National Labor Relations Board (Nope)
    Boeing (Nope)
    TARP (Nope)
    the auto bailout (Nope; another series of lies exposed in his last speech)
    Rep. Paul Ryan’s Medicare proposal (Nope)
    former Gov. Mitt Romney’s health care program in Massachusetts (Yep)
    raising the debt ceiling (Nope)
    raising the retirement age for Social Security (Perhaps)
    the role of religion in public life (LOL... after Rev. Wright?)
    the 10th amendment (How it can be abused perhaps)
    Libya (Nope)
    Afghanistan (bin Laden, bin Laden, bin Laden... yes)
    and so on (LOL... )

    The really bad thing about this is you can tell a Liberal this is all out right lies all day long and they will never believe it because it comes from the Messiah Obama.

    I have never seen anything like it my life, I expect any day to hear that Obama is going to Mount Vernon to deliver his own sermon on the Mount.

    Didn't we just het a lot of crap for Republicans threatening to run fake Democrats in a recall election?

    I would bet we don't hear an outcry from the Left for this, but it's only hypocrisy

    Partisanship is Partisanship, once you can see it on both sides Zimmer, you too Council, I'll listen to you all a lot more. But YES you are correct in my opinion, this video is a perfect example of bad editing, with the goal of presenting a different message, and of partisanship even though you are a hypocrite for pointing it out you are right.

    As far as Im concerned it says more about the lousy questions CNN picked than it does about the candidates.

    Im willing to bet that most posters here could think up a better agregate of questions that are important to voters than the mush they used for that debate.

    Surprise, surpise. Political groups manipulating availabe information to attack the opposition. That's certainly a new tactic.

    I await the outrage against the DNC from all the liberals who comtinually bitched and complained that they felt conservative pundits and so on were using false and misleading videos that were 'heavily edited' to make the liberal opposition look bad.

    It must have been Fox News.

    It was a funny video. Unless they lied when they said that "middle class" was never mentioned or something like that I see nothing wrong with it. I'd love to have much more educated and grown up election processes but it's not going to happen anytime soon as far as I can tell. And I don't expect the DNC to handcuff themselves and not allow themselves to pick on republicans just because Republicans get a little butt hurt over it.

    Yaaawwn. Get back to me when the GOP doesn't do the same exact thing. It's called politics. It's funny though. I saw an almost duplicate thread on another forum. This must be the right's newest fake controversy. It doesn't appear to be taking off though. Better luck next time. LOL
