Romney goes to a $50,000 a plate dinner and tells the elite audience about how the teat-sucking masses are sponging off of their success. Then publicly backtracks after a video of his speech is released.
We've all seen the video. That is not what he said.
Here is what Romney said:
There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax…[M]y job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
And at least Romney publicly said his comments were wrong. When did Obama ever apologize publicly for some of the same type of comments he's made about people who vote conservative?
Romney making up claims that Obama apologised about Americas behaviour when the Libyan Ambassador was killed, when no such apology ever happened.
He never said Obama apologized, he said the Administration apologized for the video they claim started the protests that never happened and there was in fact a tweet from someone at the embassy (which is an extension of the administration) apologizing.
“It’s their administration,” he said. “Their administration spoke. The president takes responsibility not just for the words that come from his mouth, but also the words from his ambassadors, from his administration, from his embassies, from his State Department. They clearly sent mixed messages to the world. And the statement that came from the administration—and the embassy is the administration—the statement that came from the administration was a statement which is akin to apology. And I think it was a severe miscalculation.”

Oh, and let's not forget my favourite: Romney spray tanning himself 20 shades darker and dying his hair immediately before going to speak to a Hispanic audience.
So now we're taking accusations from left wing bloggers as gospel. Got it.
They're. Both phonies. They both misrepresent the facts to support themseleves and their positions. They're both bought and paid for by special interests.
There is some truth to this with every politician. It is a show to win votes.
However, only one of them did what was outlined in the article above, which is to vote against something, then go to a black audience and tell them that America is racist because the government didn't vote for it, even though THEY DID!
There is being a typical politician and then there is stoking the fires of racism.
They are not even on the same level so to first of all use misinformation regarding what Romney said or did and then to parallel it to what Obama did makes no sense.
