MSNBC’s Ed Schultz took this Rick Perry quote, speaking of the national debt:
. . . that big black cloud that hangs over America, that debt that is so monstrous . . .
edited out “that debt that is so monstrous”, and then lied through his teeth:
That black cloud that Perry is talking about is President Barack Obama.
This, used in support of Schultz’s contention that Republicans are racists, is perhaps unintentionally revealing. If he is resorting to this, he must have nothing. After all, if he had any real evidence that Perry was a racist, he would use it, rather than making up lame crap like this.
UPDATE: Schultz apologizes, sort of. He apologizes for editing the quote, but he doesn’t apologize for lying about what Perry said. The latter, he’s hoping people simply forget.
