Could Democrats Get Any More Ridiculous?
After President Barack Obama stumbled his way to a loss in the first presidential debate on Wednesday night, Democratic National Committee communications director Brad Woodhouse took to MSNBC to try to spin criticism back in the direction of Mitt Romney with what appeared to be a fabricated claim.
“He wants to go back to war in Iraq,” Woodhouse said of Romney during a Thursday morning appearance on MSNBC....
... Woodhouse has not responded to a request for comment – or given an explanation as to how he could have thought Romney wants to go back to war in Iraq.
Woodhouse could have been referring to 2011 statements by Romney in which he criticized the president’s plan on how he was going to withdraw from Iraq – calling that “tragic.”
In early September, Obama twisted that Romney comment and said that Romney called ending the war in Iraq at all was “tragic.” PolitiFact ripped Obama for that line of attack on Romney, calling it a “half-true” statement.
