That's right - at least Obama was honest enough to admit that his political ads were "over the top" - but 60 Minutes chose not to air that.
But this is important - here you are complaining about ads.
Imagine how you would feel if you had the entire national news media working against you?
That's what Republicans face. Obama can makes gaffes until the cows come home:
1. Libya was a result of a movie (he is STILL claiming that even though Hillary, the State Dept and the President of Libya have all said it was terrorism).
2. He is only responsible for 10% of his administration's debt - the rest was (still) left-over Bush's fault. The fact checkers gave him "four Pinocchios" (most inaccurate possible) on that statement today.
3. Romney paid a lower tax rate than the average American making $50,000 (in fact he paid a higher rate than people making over $100k) 14% - not counting charitable deductions (counting those he gave out about 35% of his income).
4. That Romney wants to raise taxes on people making $50,000/year. No, he wants to keep the Bush tax cuts in place and lower capital gains and corporate taxes.
5. That Romney wants to end Medicare and under that plan it will be bankrupt by 2016. (in fact Romney's plan cuts the same 750 billion that Obamacare cuts - but there are other details)
But then you have the media - these are so stupid its laughable:
1. Romney doesn't know why airplane windows don't roll down (Yes, MSNBC was reporting this as if he really didn't know).
2. That Paul Ryan has gone "rogue" and secretly call Romney "the Stench" - this is based a comment made by a totally minor EX-republican official who now writes a column in Iowa. he said "IF ROMNEY LOSES then Ryan will have to get the stench of that off of his resume."
Basically, he was just making a comment on how politics works.
Afterwards - a Politico writer made up a satire piece (a fairy tale) where he wrote that Ryan refers to Romney as "Stench" - and that Ryan said "If Stench calls tell him I'm eating finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan."
I repeat - this was fiction, a fairy tale written by a hack blogger. Ryan knew nothing about this.
None other than Nobel Prize Winner Paul Krugman in the New York Times, and MSNBCs Laurence O'Donnell actually reported that Paul Ryan said those words. They reported it as fact.
That is criminal - but guess what, they have not even apologized or admitted their mistake yet. They are just saying "it wasn't our fault, the blog didn't say "satire" at the top."
Idiots - libelous idiots. You are mad about ads, imagine if Obama was treated like that?
In the same week as the Sept 11 terror attacks in Libya; 92% of media reports were negative stories about Romney, 8% were about the fact that there were terrorist warnings in Libya before the attack.
