Media Spreads Obama Campaign Lie About Romney “Big Business Doing Fine” Quote
Another day another lie being pushed by the media to help Obama. This one is ridiculously stupid. But then most of them are…
The criticism against Romney this time is on account of this quote:
“I’m going to champion small business. We’ve got to make it easier for small businesses. Big business is doing fine in many places – they get the loans they need, they can deal with all the regulation.”
They know how to find ways to get through the tax code, save money by putting various things in the places where there are low tax havens around the world for their businesses. But small business is getting crushed.”
Some news agencies are chopping up the quote in order to rid it of context and validity.
This tweet is from Obama’s “rapid response” director, but it links to an AP story:

The story has this assessment:
His comments echoed similar assertions about the state of big business by President Barack Obama which Romney has criticized.
Like most liberal and media “outrage”, this is completely fabricated. Let me make this clear for you morons:
Obama saying the entire private sector is “doing fine” is not the same as Romney saying “Big business” is doing fine “in some places,” while advocating the interests of small business.
Obama revealed a disdain for all private enterprise that is evidenced by his anti-business policies, while Romney merely reiterated his support for small businesses.
These are utterly and completely different things, and for the media to conflate them in order to substantiate a baseless criticism of the Obama administration shows how pathetic they are.
