Apparently even a moonbat like David Letterman can only be fed so many lies before he starts to choke:
“Here’s what upset me [about the last debate] … this playing fast and loose with facts. And President Obama cites the op-ed piece that Romney wrote about Detroit, ‘Let them go bankrupt, let them go bankrupt.’ And [in the debate] he brings it up again, ‘Oh no, Governor, you said let them go bankrupt, blah blah blah, let them go bankrupt, blah.’ And Mitt said, ‘No, no, check the thing, check the thing, check the thing.’
“Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth, you want the contender to be lying. And so when we found out today or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece, I felt discouraged. …
“The fact that the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he’s the president, of course he’s right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that.”
“Taking liberties” means Obama was lying through his teeth regarding Romney’s approach to GM’s bankruptcy, which would have been much more beneficial for the company in the long run than Obama’s because he would not have sold out the company to the union that had crippled it. Maybe this is why the Detroit News endorses Romney, who has caught up with Obama in Michigan despite Obama’s bogus smears.
