Obama Campaign Sends Around Misleading DNC Video on GOP Debate
ABC News ^ | June 14, 2011 | Jake Tapper

Posted on 06/14/2011 6:30:31 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

At last night’s Republican debate, the seven candidates talked about unemployment, taxes, regulations, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s talk of a goal of 5% GDP growth, the individual mandate in the health care bill, the Independent Medicare Advisory Board, welfare reform, the Tea Party, currency policy, the National Labor Relations Board, Boeing, TARP, the auto bailout, Rep. Paul Ryan’s Medicare proposal, former Gov. Mitt Romney’s health care program in Massachusetts, raising the debt ceiling, raising the retirement age for Social Security, the role of religion in public life, the 10th amendment, Libya, Afghanistan, and so on.

But President Obama’s 2012 campaign is sending out a DNC video suggesting the candidates spoke only about sharia law, an anti-gay-marriage amendment, repealing health care, Sarah Palin, and the space program.

“You should watch this,” says campaign manager Jim Messina in the email to supporters, “if you or anyone you know is wondering where the leading GOP candidates want to go, this clip makes it clear. The first big Republican debate last night was like a time machine. They want to go back to the failed policies of the past that caused the economic crisis in the first place. They want to go back and reopen every settled debate that they've lost over the last few years -- on the health care law, on ‘Don't Ask, Don't Tell,’ and on reforming Wall Street's abuses. They even want to turn back the clock and end Medicare as we know it.”

This video is the “talking points” or “marching orders” from on high to the rest of the Democrat/Media complex.

PROJECTION.

The big news here is that is the ACTUAL HEADLINE from the ABC News blog. If that is how ABC frames it, the Democrats are cooked.

Its not ABC News, its Jake Tapper.

What I don't understand is how he gets these stories past his editor.

Last night’s debate showed me how Michele Bachmann would destroy Obama in a head to head debate.She is way ahead of Obama on issues,jobs,the budget,her legislative experience,pro-life,care for the children of others and love of this great country.It is hard to find an issue or area of life where independents and conservatives would not overwwellmingly choose Michele.

That is so true! Such a headline would not have appeared on a lamestream media site as recently as a year ago.
