Glad I didn’t have to watch the whole thing last night. The Democratic National Committee’s Rapid Response Team has produced this 42-second version to save me time:
Not having watched the whole thing, I can’t say myself that is was misleading.
So I’ll rely on this report by Jake Tapper, one of the few mainstream media reporters on whom I’m willing to rely, Obama Campaign Sends Around Misleading DNC Video on GOP Debate:
… the video, which Messina calls a “highlight reel” and the DNC titled “What in the world are they talking about?” selectively uses clips from the 2-hour forum suggesting that the candidates were focused on idiotic issues, or battles from the past, when all of the topics the video hammers the Republicans for talking about were ones they were asked about at the forum.
So maybe the new Democratic Party talking point should be, Why does CNN want to go back to the failed policies of the past? (And by failed policies, they mean only Republican failed policies, not the failed Democratic policies which led to the housing bubble and crash.)
