Liberals Give Romney Campaign Taste Of Its Own Out-Of-Context Medicine

Mitt Romney's presidential campaign got much attention this Thanksgiving week for an anti-President Obama ad it started running in New Hampshire that invidiously edited, in a wildly out-of-context manner, a 2008 statement by the then-U.S. senator.

Perhaps not unexpectedly given the nature of our tit-for-tat politics, the liberal group ThinkProgress.org, retaliated in kind, giving several Romney comments the same treatment.

Among the things ThinkProgress has Romney "saying" in the tightly and misleadingly edited snippets are "Just let us raise your taxes a little more" and "America's just another nation with a flag."

To think we have 11 more months of this to go.
