Romney’s claims don’t match reality, Obama team says in new ad

April 26, 2012

In its latest ad, “Mitt Romney versus Reality: Global Edition,” the Obama reelection campaign is hitting back on several of Romney’s attacks on the president’s foreign policy, splicing together video of Romney’s claims and what the campaign calls “reality” — mostly videos of Obama claiming to have done the opposite.

So where Romney is shown accusing Obama of wanting Israel to “go back to the ’67 borders,” a clip follows of Obama saying that “Israelis and Palestinians will negotiate a border that is different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967.” Video shows Romney telling an audience Obama “spends a lot of time apologizing for America”; the next clip shows Obama telling a different audience, “We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense.”

I wish americans would actually listen to the double talk from Romney. His last speech he actually said that the market was better at finding ways to stimulate the economy than the government can. Hmmm, but I thought it was the market and its questionable if not shady investments that led to the rediculous loans that led us down the road to recession. To me if Romney is elected that would be putting one of the people that put us into this situation in a position to do it again.
