This will probably be denounced as an “unfair attack,” given that Romney’s entire campaign has been about avoiding his own record:
In a press release, Rick Santorum campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley said: “Since Mitt Romney refuses to talk about his own liberal record, we figured we’d show people what Mitt Romney says about Mitt Romney. We wanted to give Governor Romney’s long-held positions and statements an opportunity to be heard.”
Notice that when I quote a press release, I tell you I’m quoting a press release? That’s arguably more honest than booking Chris Christie onto Fox & Friends to spin for Romney the day after a debate and pretending that it was just a coincidence.
It would behoove those who talk about liberal media bias, and who boast of being “Fair and Balanced,” occasionally to acknowledge their own biases. If Fox News executives want to change the name of their morning show to Romney & Friends, OK. But don’t pretend that your biased coverage isn’t biased.
And don’t imagine we’re too stupid to notice what you’re doing.
