"It's not worth moving heaven and earth and spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person."
Take a look at what Mitt Romney actually said:
"I think, I wouldn't want to over-concentrate on Bin Laden. He's one of many, many people who are involved in this global Jihadist effort. He's by no means the only leader. It's a very diverse group – Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood and of course different names throughout the world.
It's not worth moving heaven and earth and spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person. It is worth fashioning and executing an effective strategy to defeat global, violent Jihad and I have a plan for doing that."
The despicable Obama campaign took that out-of-context quote from the Associated Press, and took it even more out of context. In fact, Romney was saying the opposite of what Obama portrayed. Romney was saying the killing of Bin Laden should be a part of a larger drive to exterminate terrorists.
All the media perpetuated this appalling lie.
The media miquoted Romney several times in recent days, in broad media attacks that reached hundreds of mainstream outlets. Buzzfeed misquoted Ann Romney to make it sound like she "likes the fact" that single mothers have to work. Ezra Klein at Washington Post misquoted Mitt Romney to make it sound like he flip-flopped on forcing single mothers to work.
