Mitt Romney Caught In a Lie by Reporter

This is a great video that was shown on "Countdown with Keith Olberman":

The thing I found great about this was that a mainstream reporter (Johnson works for the AP) was the one asking these tough, pointed questions of Romney. He clearly pointed out the hypocrisy of this campaign, and indirectly, every other campaign as well. All of these candidates claim to not take their orders from lobbyists and that they want to go to Washington and help the people. Bullshit. They all have lobbyists running their campaigns, and that's whose backs they're going to rub when they get to Washington.

And if you saw towards the end, you'd see the abuse Johnson got from Romney's communications director. In the "democracy" that's talked about by campaigns like Romney's, you're not supposed to ask tough questions. That wouldn't be "acting professionally". You're supposed to be an asskisser and ask him questions about being a Mormon or things of that nature.
