Video: Obama Campaign Demonstrates How To Make An Anti-Romney Commercial
The Obama campaign literally takes Romney’s words out of context by cutting out a piece of Romney’s response to a question posed on 60 Minutes.
Or will CBS merely excuse it.
Here is a transcript of the interview with the part the Obama campaign cut out in bold:
PELLEY: Now, you made on your investments, personally, about twenty million dollars last year. And you paid fourteen percent in federal taxes. That’s the capital gains rate. Is that fair to the guy who makes fifty thousand dollars and paid a higher rate than you did?
ROMNEY: It is a low rate. And one of the reasons why the capital gains tax rate is lower is because capital has already been taxed once at the corporate level, as high as thirty-five percent.
PELLEY: So you think it is fair?
ROMNEY: Yeah, I — I think it’s — it’s the right way to encourage economic growth, to get people to invest, to start businesses, to put people to work.
And remember: Obama says he approved this message.
