The recent Obama quote lifted from context to falsely assert that Obama called Americans lazy is just one example of a recent flurry of dishonest quotes being used to paint Obama as anti-American. Now Mitt Romney's campaign has joined in the dishonesty, this time quoting Obama quoting John McCain. The problem is that Romney's campaign ad excised the portion of Obama's sentence that attributes the words to John McCain.
So given that Romney is resorting to this level of dishonesty, would it be right for Obama to go down the same road? I'd rather he didn't. Just keep exposing their crackpottery and moral flimsiness. The Republicans are frittering away every last ounce of dignity and self-respect.
Below, Think Progress gives Romney a dose of his own medicine. This wasn't presented as if it was an honest representation of Romney; it was used to make a point about Romney's dishonest advertising. Ryan Liza also comments on the candidate's dishonesty below the fold.
