Romney is fighting a battle similar to a team trying to overcome crooked, store-bought referees...


How MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell distorts a Romney story


Remember the fun the MSM had with Republican VP Dan Quayle in a school room holding up a misspelled word, without mentioning that the class teacher was the one who'd written out the word incorrectly?

Or how they made Republican President George H.W. Bush look stupid at a grocery store photo op making conversation with a checkout clerk about how the scanner worked? The repetitive media meme for Republicans is 'out of touch.'

Well, this may be the worst one yet: Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC making fun of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at a rally describing the purchase of a hoagie at a local store. Watch this video and see the impression you get from MSNBC's Romney film clip.

Then scroll down for what Romney really said.


<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/JvJPG6KURV8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Wow, what a disconnected rich dummy, eh?

Except, thanks to the keen eye of a conservative blogger named Scooper Mexican and Politico's Dylan Byers, there's a tad more to the story. Romney had described the bureaucratic nightmare that one small businessman, an optometrist, endured dealing with the federal government over a simple address change.

Romney compared that to buying a hoagie. Here's what the Republican actually said with the words MSNBC deleted in bold::

"I was at WaWa's, I went in to order a sandwich. You press a little touchtone keypad -- you touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier -- thereís your sandwich. Itís amazing. People in the private sector have learned how to compete. It's time to bring some competition to the federal government."

Wee bit of difference there.

What a convenient politically-compatible piece of film editing. Not the first time this has happened. Remember NBC's creative editing of that George Zimmerman 911 call back in April that made it seem like he volunteered Trayvon Martin's skin color, when he was actually only answering the police dispatcher's question?

You gotta watch what you watch and read every second now not just for what's there, but for what's not there. Especially, it seems, on NBC programs.

Yes, we get it, Mitt. You went to WaWa's. What your quote doesn't show is that he kept going on about going to Wawa's. He's a regular dude. Went to WaWa's. Got it.

It has to do with the fact that he was comparing the "amazing" efficiency of a private sector order system with the all too familiar inefficiency of the government bureaucracy when trying to do something as simple as changing an address.

How about the MSM get off their sycophantic asses and report that Romney's 33 page change of address anecdote is completely full of shit (which is par for the course with that guy).

The media story of yesterday was MSNBC's Fox-like editing of a clip to distort the meaning and emphasis of Romney's comparison between the public and the private sector. The real story was whether his claim that an optometrist had to fill out a 33 page federal government form twice to change his address was in any way true. <b>Mediaite finds the form to be two pages long</b>, and four if you include instructions.

They are called smart phones, they have really good video cameras in them, and they are ubiquitous these days. I mean, virtually every big crowd of people has at least 2 dozen of them being held up to record things now.

Distorted NBC version: Romney is fascinated by commonplace consumer experience as if he's never encountered such a thing before.

Actual version in full context: Romney compares bloated, inefficient government customer service experience and simple, sleek private customer service experience and then uses a sarcastic expression of amazement to emphasize the difference.

WOW! Way to dodge the question. For someone who is supposedly "middle of the road" why would you want tax cuts to end, only to be reinstated to prove a "point" to the right? You are still the only one on here that thinks MSNBC is fair and balanced. Not very "middle of the road".

Actually, I just looked it up and Romney is talking about a pastry that doesn't have a hole in it. You're on a streak of wrong the last couple of days.

While it's possible that he doesn't know that the plate of pastries are generically known as "donuts", it's far more likely that he was trying to come up with a more specific name ("long john", "bear claw", "fritter", "roll", "twist", "old fashioned", etc.). You see, when you are as educated and well-traveled as Romney is, you try to develop a command over the language that allows you to be more precise than a guy who sees "rock" regardless of whether he's looking at "marble", "granite", or "limestone". Some people, generally those who are unsophisticated rubes, might see this as elitism, but the truth is that it's just knowledge and a sense of precision.

You can't seriously be this dense, can you?

I have been to WaWa's. The electronic ordering system is phe-fucking-nominal. You can order your hoagie without waiting in line, shop around, and boom, your hoagie is ready a few minutes later. It is an innovation that makes their store more efficient, greatly enhances the shopping experience, and cuts down on their costs.

You know why? Because if WaWa doesn't keep their customers coming back, then Subway or 7-11 is going to clean out their clock.

The postal service is bleeding money, even though UPS and FedEx are doing well privately. Social security is a joke, even though private firms are crushing it with retirement benefits. There is no reason to bloat government with public programs if the private sector can do it fine on their own.

He's a recent millionaire. Hasn't been in high office very long. He probably hasn't forgotten how regular people live. Romney, however, I don't think ever knew how regular people live. This shows up when he speaks of his "love of sport" and inability to identify a donut.

I really donít think either of these guys has much at all in common with the guy working 60 hours a week to support their family and being worried about either losing their job or being able to pay their bills. Romney grew up wealthy and I honestly donít know if Obama or Biden for that matter have ever had a ďrealĒ job. By real job I mean a private sector job like most of us have where the value we bring to our employer is measured in dollars and cents. With these so called real jobs the financial wellbeing of oneís family depended on that income. Again I doubt if either Mitt or the POTUS has ever once had to worry about having too much month left at the end of their money.

You can't seriously be this dense, can you?

I have been to WaWa's. The electronic ordering system is phe-****ing-nominal. You can order your hoagie without waiting in line, shop around, and boom, your hoagie is ready a few minutes later. It is an innovation that makes their store more efficient, greatly enhances the shopping experience, and cuts down on their costs.

You know why? Because if WaWa doesn't keep their customers coming back, then Subway or 7-11 is going to clean out their clock.

The postal service is bleeding money, even though UPS and FedEx are doing well privately. Social security is a joke, even though private firms are crushing it with retirement benefits. There is no reason to bloat government with public programs if the private sector can do it fine on their own.

He is a waste of time. One of the biggest clowns ever on this site~

Jon Stewart Mocks Fox's Invention Of Obama Immigration Hypocrisy

On The Daily Show, Jon Stewart mocked Fox News for falsely accusing President Obama of hypocrisy regarding recent administration changes to immigration policy.

Stewart pointed out that Fox had deceptively edited comments by Obama. As a result, Fox left the false impression that the president didn't believe his administration could use its discretion to allow certain young immigrants to stay in the country.

Stewart pointed out that Fox's edited video cut Obama off "just before he very clearly says he can do the exact thing he just did."

I stopped watching NBC and anything related to its news when they aired that crazy korean's shit during the Virginia Tech shootings. Its one of many news orgs that lacks any moral compass and I am ashamed for anybody that works there.

Honest question, is Obama, also a multimillionaire, connected to middle class America?

Currently, probably not. But he was more recently connected to the middle class than 41, W, Romney, or McCain.

I think in both cases people should be fired for doing these sort of things.

What does this:
"I was at WaWa's, I went in to order a sandwich. You press a little touchtone keypad -- you touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier -- thereís your sandwich. Itís amazing."

Have to do with this:
"People in the private sector have learned how to compete. It's time to bring some competition to the federal government."

Yes, we get it, Mitt. You went to WaWa's. What your quote doesn't show is that he kept going on about going to Wawa's. He's a regular dude. Went to WaWa's. Got it.

I really hate when the MSM is mean to people by showing stuff they said and stuff they did.

I think what he was saying is that if private industry can make improvements to their efficiencies the federal govt should be able to do the same. Not sure why you couldn't understand that. Don't worry I don't mind explaining simple things like this to people like you.

http://mediamatters.org/blog/201206200004John Stewart's pretty good about going after shitty media types. He does it all the time. I can't wait until he makes a joke out of this Andrea Mitchell thing on NBC. Should be really funny.
