Who’s running the Obama campaign? A bunch of juveniles?
In a move straight out of the ‘I’m rubber and your glue’ playbook, the Obama campaign released a childish web video today in which they edit videos of opponent Mitt Romney’s speeches to make him look like he is supporting redistributive policies as an attempt to teach Romney a lesson about taking other people’s comments (READ: Obama’s comments) out of context.
The video aims to show that if Romney’s words were taken out of context the way Obama’s are, he’d look pretty radical, too. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Romney is clearly reciting comments first made by Obama in most of the clips in the video, not espousing hard Left views himself. The problem is, though, that unlike Romney, Obama’s not repeating the words of his opponent when he’s quoted in GOP and Romney campaign ads saying the things that he claims are out of context, like “You didn’t build that” and “I believe in redistribution.” He’s legitimately laying out his political philosophy.
The Obama campaign is literally comparing apples to oranges with the pointless video. Furthermore, why it chose to frame Romney for statements he didn’t make rather than exploit the damaging Romney comment everyone’s talking about is just baffling.
This presidential campaign is about to turn into a classic school yard fight.
