Now, we're really down the rabbit hole

The Obama campaign is now running an online ad accusing Romney of misquoting Obama. The only problem is that the Obama campaign has to edit out what Obama really said in order to launch their accusation. Their real enemy is C-Span, not Romney lying.

Is denying reality the best the Obama team can do?

Not sure you get this... Romney is a liar. A thief. He should release his tax returns, and he should stop trying to change the subject. He's a disgrace.

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.

So we say to ourselves, ever since the founding of this country, you know what, there are some things we do better together. That’s how we funded the GI Bill. That’s how we created the middle class. That’s how we built the Golden Gate Bridge or the Hoover Dam. That’s how we invented the Internet. That’s how we sent a man to the moon. We rise or fall together as one nation and as one people, and that’s the reason I’m running for president — because I still believe in that idea. You’re not on your own, we’re in this together.”

Really? Because that is exactly how firefighting used to work until the government took control of it.

Dexter - Please explain why one in three small business that are started each year fail within the first year. If it doesn't have to do with the skill, ability talent and foresight of the owner, what is the controlling variable? Guess in your world it is pure blind luck since each business has the same roads, interent, firemen, etc.

Dexter logic: Everyone is a thief and tax cheat until they have proven otherwise. It doesn't matter if your most recent tax returns show nothing wrong. It doesn't matter if you have a stellar reputation in business. The tax returns you don't release are presumed to be evidence of criminal behavior unless otherwise determined.

Did I get that right, Dexter?

Dexter...oh I don't know...Romney seems to me to be a lot more honest than Obama is..In fact,if I had a dollar for every lie Obama told the American people, I could pay off my Nissan.

Now the Obama, who have no problem taking others out of context are whining that someone took them out of context.

Hypocrites and cry babies, that is what they are.

Cecil Bordages asks:

Could it be because Obama only helped 1/3 of those businesses? Yeah, that's the ticket.... Morgan Fairchild.

I wonder how many people defending Romney's secrecy about his taxes had no problem with the calls for Obama to show his birth certificate.

Romney's campaign has now claimed it did not pay zero taxes in 2009, so it has opened the door to more questions. Perhaps Romney can confirm whether or not he participated in the amnesty program offered by the IRS that year.

I don't give a damn about his birth certificate, but I've been waiting for him to release his college records for the last four years.

Every other presidential candidate for at least the last 40 years has.....
