Re: Romney Dismisses Obama’s Bin Laden Bragging

The L.A. Times quotes President Obama as follows: “I assume that people meant what they said when they said it. That’s been at least my practice.”

And so it has. For example, see these other things he clearly meant when he said them:

“No family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.”

“As president, I will close Guantanamo.”

“But what I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support.”

“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”

“My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.”

“I will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American people an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website.”

“No political appointee in an Obama-Biden administration will be permitted to work on regulations or contracts directly and substantially related to their prior employer for two years.”

“I’ll give an annual State of the World address to the American people where I lay out national security policy.”

And so it goes.

The Romney campaign should be able to run with this for months.

CNN: Everything but the News

For a while, we thought MSNBC had temporarily usurped CNN as the font of fake news — although both networks had tied for the most negative coverage (93 percent of all their news reports) of President Trump’s first 100 days in office. A cynic would argue that CNN had deliberately given Trump undue coverage ... Read More
