DC Douglas makes fun of Romney’s latest attack on Obama:

As usual the Romney campaign edited Obama’s words (splicing out “roads and bridges”) to make it sound like Obama was dissing entrepreneurs and claiming that they didn’t build their own businesses (when he was actually saying that they didn’t build the roads and bridges they depend on). Like, how incredibly stupid would Obama have to be to say something like that?

In addition, Jack Gilchrist, the star of their attack ad who claims that he didn’t have any help from the government to build his business actually has taken quite a bit of money from the government. Not only that, but afterward Gilchrist went on Fox News and agreed with Obama that he had plenty of help from the government.

Oh, and the Obama campaign released a video showing Romney agreeing with Obama that businesses depend on the government — you know, things like education, roads, bridges, and other minor stuff like the Internet.

But for the best take on this whole thing, watch our favorite curmudgeon Lewis Black on the Daily Show:

UPDATE: PolitiFact rates Romney’s attack on Obama as False, as do and the Washington Post Fact Checker.
