An Obama campaign ad is accusing Mitt Romney of “launching a false attack” by quoting him:
NARRATOR: Mitt Romney is launching a false attack.
ROMNEY: President Obama exposes what he really thinks about free people and the American vision. . . He said this: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
NARRATOR: The only problem? That’s not what he said.
[Obama says a bunch of other stuff, interleaved with stuff from Romney, then:]
OBAMA: If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.
This is truly bizarre. Not only are they lying, saying that Obama didn’t say what he said, but the ad even includes video of him saying exactly what they’re denying he said. It’s the self-refuting ad!
UPDATE: Someone prepared this shortened version of Obama’s self-refuting ad:
