Oh, me too. I just wanted to give you context.

Conservatives hate context.

As for context in the Planned Parenthood thing, what these videos were designed to sinus give GOP candidates a way to talk about abortion without being too scary about it. "We should defund Planned Parenthood" is much more palatable to a moderate voter than "no abortions ever." The base understands that progress and baby steps are preferable to sweeping intentions that don't go anywhere.

There's a reason these tapes were released in the weeks leading up to the debates. It's not like the group got the covert footage and races breathlessly to CNN and said, "stop the presses! We have proof PP is seeking to maximize profits on fetal tissue! This is an important issue that every American must know about! It's like abortion watergate!"

This is all part of the political calculus, and the social right making sure that they will be heard and not ignored by the several dozen candidates.

Finally, reality TV would be worthwhile.

How's Newt going this season? Is he breathing unaided yet since the stint in Walter White's basement?

The objective, impartial, nonpartisan truth of the matter is that the videos were heavily edited. Editing doesn't have to mean (as your statements here seem to imply) that everything must be spliced together from disparate parts to create a false narrative, but in this case it certainly means that contextually clarifying statements were omitted in order to create a false narrative.

This isn't a matter of opinion. If, in the face of hard evidence proving that significant editing was done, you state that you still don't think they were edited, then sure, that's your opinion, but your opinion also happens to be wrong.

Well they are out there and affecting public opinion. As I said before even Hillary watched them and found them "disturbing"

Time to move on. I've said my piece.

As to the state of the race it will be interesting to see the debate tonight.

The Democratic side is in flux. A recent poll had clinton 42% to sanders 36%. Certainly striking distance. Looks like we'll have to wait until October for a dem debate.

I'll say it's refreshing that we don't have 2 coronated candidates. And we sleep through the primaries without much interest

And again I say that imo the Democratic side is meaningless right now. They're not trying to do anything to mess themselves up right now while their opponents are ripping each other to pieces.

Truth be damned. Which was kind of the point behind it. To those pushing this PP issue, it seems like it doesn't matter what the actual truth is if lying produces the desired effect.

It seems as if the Republicans will never learn that the majority of Americans see through the lies. Only the base believes.
