After a three-day hiatus owing to the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting, President Barack Obama laid into Mitt Romney at a fundraiser here Monday night, blasting his GOP rival for taking his words out of context.
"Frankly, the other side can't sell their ideas so what they're goingto do is distort my vision. Earlier today, Gov. Romney was at it again," Obama said as the crowd booed. "Knowingly twisting my words to suggest I don’t value small business. In politics, we all tolerate a certain amount of spin. I understand those are the games that get played in political campaigns. Although, when folks like omit entire sentences of what you said, they start kind of splicing and dicing, you may have gone a little over the edge there. But there’s actually a real choice there."
