The Obama Campaign Explains Our Misperception of Everything


The Obama campaign, this week:

  • When President Obama said, “if you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that,” he didn’t mean the business, he meant, “roads and bridges.”
  • When President Obama said, “We tried our plan, and it worked,” he wasn’t referring to his own agenda and policies but tax hikes enacted by President Clinton back in 1993.
  • The term “Anglo-Saxon” is racist.
  • Romney’s statement…”"You know it’s hard to know just how well it will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting. The stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials – that obviously is not something which is encouraging.” … represents some sort of epic insult to our closest ally.

Up is down! Left is right! George Lazenby is the best Bond! Everything is… backwards!
