Mitt Romney has a great new ad he can make to woo Ohio voters. Jay Leno has a great question he can ask Barack as Barack makes yet another visit to the Tonight Show. All courtesy David Letterman.
In our review of the third and final debate we wrote:
“Obama repeatedly attacked Romney on the auto industry. Romney shattered all these lies by noting he was born in Detroit and his father ran an auto company. Romney smashed Obama’s investment in auto companies in other countries as well as bankrupts such as Solyndra.”
Last night David Letterman, a big Obama supporter, with Rachel Maddow sitting on the couch, called Barack Obama a big fat (make that little and skinny) LIAR!
What’s that lame saying that goes something like “when you’ve lost _____ …?” Well, Letterman: Say, Obama’s kind of lying about this GM bankruptcy thing, huh?
“Letterman tells MSNBCs Rachel Maddow that he finds it disappointing when a challenger proves to be more honest than an incumbent President: [snip]
If you want your President to be telling the truth, then it’s time for a new President. And when a Democrat has lost David Letterman, and when Letterman tells people that the Republican was more honest than the Democrat, that is going to leave a big mark on Obama’s efforts to woo low-information voters, the very people Obama is trying to woo with his appearances on Entertainment Tonight, the late-night comedy shows, and MTV.
Who knows? Maybe Jay Leno will ask Obama a couple of tough questions tonight about his misrepresentations in the debates, and his personal attacks on Mitt Romney for the last several months.”
Wouldn’t it be a Godiva chocolate if Leno were to quote Letterman calling Obama a liar? It would be a luscious creamy center Godiva chocolate indeed.
“DAVID LETTERMAN, HOST: Here’s what upset me last night, this playing fast and loose with facts. And the President Obama cites the op-ed piece that Romney wrote about Detroit, “Let them go bankrupt, let them go bankrupt,” and last night he brings it up again. “Oh, no, Governor, you said let them go bankrupt, blah blah blah, let them go bankrupt.” And Mitt said, “No, no, check the thing, check the thing, check the thing.”
Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying. And so what we found out today or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece. I felt discouraged.
RACHEL MADDOW: Because the “Let Detroit go bankrupt” headline you feel like was inappropriate?
LETTERMAN: Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he’s the president of course he’s right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that.”
“Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.“
