Especially when it involves exposing falsehoods emanating from the Obama campaign regarding Mitt Romney.
Take this exchange between NBCs Savannah Guthrie and Romney campaign advisor Ed Gillespie.
GUTHRIE: Ed, I want to get to a new ad that your campaign is putting out today, that responds to President Obama's campaign's allegations that Bain Capital which Romney of course headed up for many, many years outsourced jobs. Here's a portion of the ad from the Romney campaign today.
UNIDENTIFIED MAN [ROMNEY AD NARRATOR]: When a president doesn't tell the truth, how can we trust him to lead? The Obama outsourcing attacks, "misleading, unfair and untrue." There was "no evidence" that Mitt Romney shipped jobs overseas.
GUTHRIE: Ed, before we get into the specifics of the charge, let's just ask you point-blank, is are you calling the President a liar?
GILLESPIE: What we're saying, Savannah, is that this ad that has been running saying that Governor Romney as CEO of Bain Capital moved American jobs overseas is a lie. If you look at that's based on numerous independent fact-checking independent fact-checking organizations. Just three yesterday came out and said there's no evidence to support the charges in this campaign. There's another ad running in northern Virginia by the Obama campaign which completely misrepresents Governor Romney's views on the issue of life.
We have an obligation as a campaign to make sure that when voters vote, they vote based on true information, that they have accurate information on which to base their vote, and right now these the Obama campaign ads have been shown to be demonstrably false and that's a you know, those that's another way of saying a lie, obviously.
Frankly, I find the answer given to be way too complicated and think the response to a follow-up question is even worse.
The proper answer should have been Yes, I am accusing the President and/or his campaign staff of lying and every independent fact-checking organization has found that to be the case. So unless President Obama is such a weak and incompetent leader that he cant keep his campaign from recycling charges that are demonstrably false, then the only conclusion we can make is that he is willing to give approval to lies in a desperate effort to be reelected.
Of course, that would immediately elicit charges of racism but given that Democrats have so debased that word by labeling all disagreement with and opposition to Barack Obama as racist, who cares?
By the way -- here's the ad that is the basis for the conversation above.
