Today's screen capture off of CNN:
Admit it, doesn't it make you picture something like this?
"... you initially opposed a timetable in Afghanistan, now you're for it..."
What Romney has disagreed with was the announcement of the withdrawal deadline...What is a timetable? A schedule of activity. You can't have a timetable without deadlines, they are the point of a timetable.
Obama accused Romney of initially being against a withdrawal of forces from Afghanistan in 2014.Again, this is a different statement than the quote they presented:
"... you initially opposed a timetable in Afghanistan, now you're for it..."The rest of their fact checking in this article... um.... checks out.
|"I really mean what I'm saying now." "I was completely wrong about that."|
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them."
"...my job is not to worry about those people—I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. What I have to do is convince the 5 to 10 percent in the center..."
"This is a message I'm carrying day and day out and will carry over the coming months," Romney said on Fox News. "This is a decision about the course of America, where we're going to head. We've seen the president's policies play out over the last four years."
"At a fundraiser you have people say, 'Governor how are you going to win this?' And so I respond 'Well, the president has his group, I have my group. I want to keep my team strong and motivated and I want to get those people in the middle.' That's something which fund-raising people who are parting with their monies are very interested in."
“Well, clearly in a campaign, with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you’re going to say something that doesn’t come out right. In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong.”
