Gosh, that could not possibly be the same guy who visited Newport News, Virginia and blamed everything on the Republicans. I mean, it just can’t be him.
The unknown man in the video said that sequestration won’t happen
This just has to be a Saturday Night Live spoof. It must be a voice over. The guy who looks exactly like Republican candidate Mitt Romney actually tried to warn America what sequestration was going to do to the Navy. The guy who looks exactly like Democrat candidate Barack Obama said that sequestration won’t happen and linked the Republican’s concerns to outdated technologies like bayonets.
The Virginian Pilot didn’t make this their top story then
Again, there is no way this is who I think this is. If it were real, then the Virginian Pilot – home newspaper to our largest Naval bases – would certainly have placed this front and center. At a minimum, they would have fact checked Mr. Romney’s claim of what the sequestration would mean. The Virginian Pilot certainly would have called major front page attention to this. Right?
Welcome to life in the real world
Pure sarcasm to be sure, but obviously we know who this is. The media of course buried the substance of it. They talked about the “eye contact”. Oh, how they talked about who supposedly “won” the debate. The Virginian Pilot didn’t make this a front and center issue. Neither did most of the media. Politico has a great synopsis of that time here.
Virginia ultimately voted Democrat. Practically every Hampton Roads region that is currently poised to get hammered with the results of sequestration, voted Democrat. This debate showcased a crystal clear choice. So how could an entire region ignore such a clear warning?
It’s called media bias. It’s there. It’s real. Stay uninformed and follow the path of Hampton Roads.
