    She's a great spokesperson for the campaign. They should get her out there more.

    I think this is smart. Let them lie and then let them be exposed as liars.

    I like her too. She presents herself in a firm, no-bullshit kind of way without being bitchy about it. I'd like to see more of her. Plus, I think simply presenting the public with facts is much more effective than slinging the mud back.

    I'm not convinced what she said was exactly truthful either, but regardless, I think this is a really smart approach and she delivered it in a calm and likable fashion.

    Most sources I've seen that rate accuracy of ads as well as news reports will provide the full text or video of the supposed falsehood, in its context, and then set the record straight. All she does is toss out, they said this, they said that. Who knows if she is right or spinning? Why not provide the source?

    Here are a couple of examples of how it's done:

    She responding to video with video because that's what people watch online. More people will watch 2 minute video than will read a text-based post.

    It's very smart.

    Also, Romney's stump speech is riddled with inaccuracies and outright lies, so it makes sense to just confront them head on. Those who want further proof can find it, but - as we've seen with the birthers and Tea Partiers - many on the right live in a parallel universe with it's own separate set of "facts."

    That's very generous of you to suggest Birthers actually have a choice, since I doubt most of them know how to read. icon_lol.gif

    that's one reason i listen 2 his opinion. his pt-of-view is multi-sided. and that is my pt about not listening 2 Super-PAC created ads.
