Stephanie Cutter: “We weren’t making an argument … that Bain was bad”

Stephanie Cutter's nose is growing as her "Romnesia" continues.

Stephanie Cutter’s nose is growing as her “Romnesia” continues.

It seems that Stephanie Cutter has a case of what her candidate, newly reelected President Barack Obama, called “Romnesia” during the campaign.

In a story published at Huffington Post, Cutter said:

We weren’t making an argument … that Bain was bad.

She said this while speaking at the seventh annual RootsCamp conference for progressive organizers in Washington, D.C. Furthermore, Cutter explained:

I never understood why they never pushed back on our attacks on his business experience. … He ran largely on an argument that, ‘I understand the real economy, I know how to fix this and the president doesn’t — he’s never been in the real economy,’ with his only credential his Bain experience. … We weren’t making an argument … that Bain was bad, we were making an argument that this experience does not qualify you to be president of the United States or to understand the real economy. We obviously worked hard to tear that down, and they never built it back up. I never understood why.

Cutter must have a case of that darned Romnesia. Just look at some of the headlines from the last few months. The bold type has been added just to make sure you don’t miss the references to the Obama campaign‘s having attacked Romney on Bain:

Three examples from a simple online search should be enough to remind readers that Cutter’s selective memory is inaccurate. Shall we remind her that she called Romney a “felon” related to his time at Bain Capital? And again, the bold type has been added, selectively, just to make sure you see where Cutter called Romney in a “felon” in the same sentence in which she referred to Bain.

Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony. Or, he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments…

How many lame stream media outlets will report Cutter’s lie today? We should not hold our breath.
