    This is about as dishonest as you can get.

    Mitt Romney said he likes being able to fire his insurance company if they don't provide the service he wants.
    DNC Chairwoman Debby Wassurman-Schultz jumped on this to imply Mitt just loves to fire people.

    FOXNews called her on it this morning and she refused to admit that she was taking the sound bite out of context.

    I think anyone who uses the comment is being totally dishonest.

    Btw, John Huntsman jumped on the comment too, so to be fair, some Repugs tend to be just as deceptive as the DNC.

    Both sides do it... wait till the general election when the GOP SuperPacs come out in force. Will your outrage be there then? Or will it only involve Progressive SuperPac ads?

    Debbie wasserman shultz is an ignorant **** who needs fired herself. When you hear "Defend against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC", the domestic part means people like her.

    I prefer to call it what it I see it as. And that is 'unacceptable bullshit' from whoever. Frankly I don't care who started it - the 'Mommy, he did it too' crap has gone too far. What we, as Americans, should be doing is calling our own politicians on their crap and insisting that they argue on policies and issues, not bullshit and lies. I find it unacceptable that "our guy lies less than your guy". It is about time that both sides - left and right - held their politicians to the same standard. That standard should be honest, rational behavior in the best interests of the nation.... not this continual bullshit from the whole fucking bunch of them. None of them deserve the honor of serving this country. Not one.

    Mitt enjoys firing people as much as Donald Trump does

    Superpacs suck....The Candidates don't even put their endorsement on many of those ads. They just say.."paid for by Citizens against unwed lesbian mothers" or something like that.
