“Mitt Romney is launching a false attack,” the ad’s text states. But the weird thing is: The Obama campaign is purposefully trying to make it sound like Romney is misquoting the president, when the official White House transcript backs up Romney’s quotation.
In the ad, Romney says that Obama revealed his thoughts on business when he said this, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
And, in fact, according to official White House transcript that’s precisely what Obama said on July 13, 2012 in Roanoke, Virginia.
This guy knew about Obama 200 years ago.
Yet Clare’s sharp questions must I shun
Must separate Constance from the nun
Oh! what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive!
A Palmer too! No wonder why
I felt rebuked beneath his eye
