This one has me ticked off. I am sick & tired of the lies flying around the republican primary.
What I heard today was the straw that broke the preverbial “Camel’s Back”.
Mitt Romney was speaking at an event when he said, “I like being able to fire people … who don’t give me good service.”
Find something wrong with that statement, I dare you. That is, without twisted the words around. In context, there’s nothing wrong with it.
Some people have twisted the words around to make Mitt say, “I like to fire people”.
That some being, the media, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman & even Rick Perry. The only candidate that didn’t was Rick Santorum. Good for you, Mr. Santorum.
Newt Gingrich has once again demonstrated he is the second coming of original big government progressive, Teddy Roosevelt, with his portrayal of Romney as the evil “Bain Capital”, wallstreet mogul. Teddy would have done the same. I’m sure it’s also an attempt at payback for what the Romney Super-pac did to him in Iowa.
He (Gingrich), Jon Huntsman & Rick Perry have all lied about the Romney quote. I say they’ve lied because anyone with a brain would understand what Romney very clearly said.
I am not even a Romney supporter, but when other’s just outright lie about a candidate, I have to say something.
I might add, it wasn’t some Super-pac on their behalf. It was the candidates themselves.
I get the whole Ron Paul half truth & lie by ommission commercials. He isn’t taken seriously by enough people. I don’t lend him enough credence to worry about. He’s in this to bring his delegates to the convention to advance some of his ideas. Hopefully it’s just the domestic ones.
I am also getting frustrated with the conservative radio hosts I usually trust to get it right. Neither Rush Limbaugh nor Sean Hannity got it right today. I discount Sean, due to him being the prototypical republican apologist.
I thought at least Rush might get it right though. He didn’t. Maybe he didn’t hear the whole Romney quote, so as to put it into context. If he didn’t, he should’ve held his comments. I didn’t hear the whole segment, so I may have missed something. For now, I’ll give Rush the benefit of the doubt. He’s usually right.
As I would expect, the only talk radio to get it exactly correct was the Glenn Beck show. Stu & Pat were hosting without Glenn today. They covered the whole flap. They were dead on.
This is what we all hate about politics guys!
