Isn't that what the liberal media do against conservatives? I got an email today from Romney's camp saying that if I donate $5, there would be a space for me on his bus. Well, that sounds tempting. But a ride to where, might I ask?

Romney and his campaign have done some very clever editing of the president where they took something he was saying about a position that McCain held, and made it sound like it was the president's position. So I'm not surprised by that kind of stuff.

Are you claiming that Romney isn't out of touch?

However, that was a candidate for president. Not a news station. This senario has been played out many times by MSNBC. Why anyone still watches that right-wing farce news I have no idea.



Yes there is a difference between a candidate making false accusations. It's the News job to syphon out the BS and present the truth. Altering a speech on a News station to help progress any party ideology is simply wrong. Who ever edited it should be fired, like what MSNBC did the Zimmerman 911 call.

Not at all, I think Obama and Romney are out of touch.



I know that question wasn't ment for me, but I thought I'd put my 2 cents in. So MSNBC is justified in how they portrayed him during that speech?

I agree:

...and do you think that MSNBC, as inexcusable as this is, is pulling the same stunt that FOX has been doing for years?

...and last but not least, Romney is out of touch and he makes that painfully evident every time he opens his mouth...so why Andrea Mitchell felt the need to go there is a mystery.

Mitt Romney may very well end up being the greatest president since Ronald Reagan.

That's got to be the funniest thing that I've ever read! Thanks for the laugh.

Out of touch with whom?



One thing for sure, MSNBC is out of touch with almost everybody as it struggles to get more than 800,000 viewers in a nation of 310 million.



Embarrassingly the prison documentaries MSNBC cycles at the weekend get higher ratings than any of its "star" lineup of self-confessed socialists, lesbians and former union workers!
