Letterman: Say, Obama’s kind of lying about this GM bankruptcy thing, huh?

posted at 1:21 pm on October 24, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Alternate headline: Even Late Night Comedy Shows Must Interview Obama Off the RecordNoel Sheppard picks up David Letterman’s belated realization that Barack Obama — one of his favorite guests — has misrepresented Mitt Romney’s position on GM and the auto bailout for months.  Letterman tells MSNBCs Rachel Maddow that he finds it disappointing when a challenger proves to be more honest than an incumbent President:

DAVID LETTERMAN, HOST: Here’s what upset me last night, this playing fast and loose with facts. And the President Obama cites the op-ed piece that Romney wrote about Detroit, “Let them go bankrupt, let them go bankrupt,” and last night he brings it up again. “Oh, no, Governor, you said let them go bankrupt, blah blah blah, let them go bankrupt.” And Mitt said, “No, no, check the thing, check the thing, check the thing.”

Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying. And so what we found out today or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece. I felt discouraged.

RACHEL MADDOW: Because the “Let Detroit go bankrupt” headline you feel like was inappropriate?

LETTERMAN: Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he’s the president of course he’s right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that.

If you want your President to be telling the truth, then it’s time for a new President.  And when a Democrat has lost David Letterman, and when Letterman tells people that the Republican was more honest than the Democrat, that is going to leave a big mark on Obama’s efforts to woo low-information voters, the very people Obama is trying to woo with his appearances on Entertainment Tonight, the late-night comedy shows, and MTV.

Who knows?  Maybe Jay Leno will ask Obama a couple of tough questions tonight about his misrepresentations in the debates, and his personal attacks on Mitt Romney for the last several months.  Pretty soon, the only safe interview for Obama will be on Sesame Street with Big Bird … and he’ll still insist on quote approval first.

Did Romney blow his chance at the debate?

Instead of worrying about having to BUY 30 minute infomercials why didn’t he take the opportunity to talk to the 60 million that watched the debate?

What about going on these talk shows like Letterman or whatever.

He’s not going to find three percent he’s searching for at gop rallies.

PappyD61 on October 24, 2012 at 1:26 PM

When Letterman points out that Mitt told the truth and Barry lied, it is over.

IowaWoman on October 24, 2012 at 1:26 PM

I’ve been seeing more and more of this in the press and media. Our liberal elites are waking up to the prospect that Romney might actually win this thing, and their individual survival instincts — which at the end of the day are what really govern them — are starting to kick in. Letterman loves Obama, but he loves his show more. A last minute attempt to cover up or equivocate about their own obvious biases doesn’t excuse their normal behavior, but it is a good indication that Romney is in this thing for real.

JeremiahJohnson on October 24, 2012 at 1:26 PM

Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth

Where have you been the last 4 years, Dave?

Bitter Clinger on October 24, 2012 at 1:26 PM

So, even though Letterman resides deep within obama rectum, he still receives signals from Earth? Who knew?

Letterman has been acting like a jackass for months concerning Romney. He’s desperate to get him on the show, cause no candidate has ever refused him. Guess this is his big bone throw.

This is what is wrong with so many people. If the President said it, it must be true. Unreal.

For low-information voters, “bankrupt”=”defunct” or “out of business forever.”

Ironically, they don’t equate personal bankruptcy with “dead.”

Christien on October 24, 2012 at 1:29 PM

Everything was going great for Barack Obama until about 9:04 on the night of Oct. 3, when Mitt Romney startled everybody by refusing to live up to his caricature as The Worst Candidate Ever.

Romney’s late-game comeback — an unexpected assertion of presidential competence in front of 67 million viewers — robbed Obama of his momentum and forced the president’s team to make a subtle yet significant change to their closing argument in the critical last two weeks of the 2012 campaign.

“The Obama organization did the single best job of destroying a candidate I have ever seen in my career, from May to September,” said pollster Peter Brown, who conducts the Quinnipiac University poll of battleground states.

“But that all went out the window when Romney showed people that the caricature of him as a clown was false. … Now he’s got to make the case for himself. If he was ahead now, my guess is he wouldn’t have taken the chance of putting all of this out there.”

Cown and freak show. They believe that most American people are stupid just becauase they fooled enough minions in 2008.

I thought Mr. Maddow was going to cry at first.

Notice how the terms are used by Mr. Letterman:

When referring to Mitt Romney, he says “lying”

When referring to Obama, it changes to: “not telling the truth” and “taking liberties”.

BobMbx on October 24, 2012 at 1:30 PM

RACHEL MADDOW: Because the “Let Detroit go bankrupt” headline you feel like was inappropriate?

Romney wrote the op-ed, but the New York Lie-mes provided the headline.

But if even Lefty Letterman says Obama is lying, this will hurt him.

Fixed for clarity… what he was really saying.

farsighted on October 24, 2012 at 1:33 PM

Knowing Letterman, he’s probably irked at Obama more for cheating on him by going on with Leno last before the election, as opposed to him actually lying about Romney’s position on the GM bailout (i.e. — If Obama went to California and went on tonight with Jimmy Kimmel instead of with the hated Jay, Letterman probably never even cares to look art the GM statement and never asks Maddow that question).

if you listen closely her answer is nonsensical. Romney DID say government financing AFTER contolled bancruptcy.

Maddow is the smirkiest liar.

gerrym51 on October 24, 2012 at 1:35 PM

Facts are that gm did go through a bankruptcy of sorts, its just that the Federal Government was their “lender” and “reorganization” buddy. The sole reason that the government stepped in was to protect the unions and the lucrative pensions. The private market would also have lent cash to gm, but only if they went about fixing their long term structural deficiencies in order to become a competitive company again.
.
The government does’t care about any of that. All they care about (the party in power) is the headline and the self gratification of doing something, even if that something was 180 degrees off from what should have been done. Guess what, the Feds are just going to end up bailing out gm again in another 15-20 years – perhaps even earlier.
.
Funny thing is even with the bailout, my wife’s engineering job in the Big 3 auto supply chain wasn’t spared.

All politicians lie about their opponent’s record. What bothers me is that I knew he was lying because I remember seeing and listening to Romney during that time, so I know firsthand what he said, as most of you do too. That wasn’t that long ago, and if David Letterman wants to be interviewing Presidents, especially one that he wholeheartedly supports, then he should be more aware of the facts. Obama taking over GM was all over TV and the newspapers, and so was Romney at the time.

We can’t depend on internet news or google since information can be scrubbed from the internet at any time, not to mention that with breaking news, many of the initial reports are usually inaccurate until more details come out. People can quote a google search when a story was breaking and be totally inaccurate.

Those low-information voters, who are too lazy to keep up with the issues, are also easily discouraged from showing up to vote. It’s hard to get excited about voting for an arrogant lying son-of-a-b!tch, even if he is your man. It’s all about turnout at this point.

The thing is, both candidates lie. Lying is a part of politics. The difference is Barack Obama is lying about Romneys record, and Romney is lying about his own record. Obviously the record in question is therefore Romneys record, because the president doesn’t have to lie about his own like Romney does.

This is why nobody with a concience can support Mitt “Mitt Romney” Romney.

For low-information voters, “bankrupt”=”defunct” or “out of business forever.”

Wouldnt is have been great if Romney had said something like this in the last debate when Obama used the line “Romney wanted the auto industry to go bankrupt.”

“I can understand why you would misunderstand what I said, since you never ran a business, but going through bankrupcy does not mean going-out-of-business. Businesses that go through structured bankrupcy do not go out of business, but return much stronger afterwards.”

..but if Pappy still insists on viewing the traffic accident, then he should be aware that that Obama will have to face an increasing amount of scrutiny on the Benghazi turmoil now coming to full boil — especially with the recent memos — while Romney wisely stayed out of that. It’s now between the MSM and their beloved who is attempting to stall out the clock. And the MSM, if nothing else, smells the red meat.

This may very well suck a lot of oxygen out of these last two weeks for Obama.

LETTERMAN: Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he’s the president of course he’s right.

Well, of course, Dave. Because we all know that presidents never lie. Especially Democratic presidents, right?

NOBODY puts baby in a corner throws hillary under the bus!

We will hear MUCH more “leaked” info, emails, etc. before Nov. 6th.

IMHO, hillary wants to run in 2016. She wants Romney to win, because she knows what dire straights our country is in and she is banking on Romney, not being able to pull it out,(hopefully he can)in four years. Therefore, she can blame all troubles on Romney. If Obama wins, she knows things will only get worse and a dimocrap is the last thing America will want in 2016.

A possibility? What say you?

Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying.

No, actually, I want both the president and the challenger to tell the truth.

b) Jay really ticked me off when he brought up the “war on women” meme when Miller was on a couple months ago

To his credit, Miller knocked that one out of the PARK.

True, that part was enjoyable. Perhaps it was a setup? Hard to believe that Jay’s ego could take that. I always wanted to believe that Jay was “one of us” :-)

Who knows? Letterman went off the rails during Bush’s second term and hasn’t returned.
