The Obama for America campaign has a new advertisement that must be seen to be believed. It claims that Obama never said his now famous "somebody else made that happen" line before showing the president saying, you guessed it, the very line.
Over at The Weekly Standard, there is an excellent play-by-play analysis of this truly remarkable piece of political propaganda. Here is an excerpt:
Nevertheless, the Obama campaign, in the ad, says it's not true. "The only problem?," the ad text reads. "That's not what he said." It then turns to Obama, from the same Roanoke campaign speech, who said, "If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life."
Which is true. Obama did say that. But he also said the line that Romney says he said-- "If you’ve got a business --you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen."
And, in fact, later in the ad the Obama campaign actually plays the clip that Romney quotes of Obama, at about :40 second spot.
