Update: Let’s play Spot the Bias! Associated Press:
“He said the private sector is doing fine,” Romney said. “Is he really that out of touch? I think he’s defining what it means to be detached and out of touch with the American people. Has there ever been an American president who is so far from reality?”
Romney rattled off a slew of statistics – 23 million Americans unemployed or underemployed, slow economic growth, falling median incomes and record foreclosures – to paint a dire portrait of the U.S. economy.
“For the president of the United States to stand up and say the private sector is doing fine is going to go down in history as an extraordinary miscalculation and misunderstanding by a president who’s out of touch,” Romney said. “We’re gonna take back this country and get America working again.”
Did you spot it? Or was it too subtle?
