Yesterday, Barack Obama told an audience at a campaign rally that “sometimes I forget” the magnitude of the recession … and today, the RNC wants to make sure everyone remembers this quote. Their rapid-response team already has a video spot up less than 24 hours later, complete with somber, funereal music and the obvious data points in the graphics. And Democrats can’t complain that the remarks were taken out of context, either:
Don’t expect the RNC or Mitt Romney’s team to get amnesia over this, either. “Sometimes I forget” will likely accompany every spot on the economy both organizations produce from now until the election.
