Obama backs away from government ownership video
Remember that video that played during the Democratic National Convention that exhalted government, claiming that it “is the only thing we all belong to?” Well, President Barack Obama’s campaign is trying to back away from it:
An Obama aide emailed BuzzFeed disavowing involvement in the video: “The video in question was produced and paid for by the host committee of the city of Charlotte. It’s neither an OFA nor a DNC video, despite what the Romney campaign is claiming. It’s time for them to find a new target for their faux outrage.”
The executive director of the host committee also said that the video was unaffiliated with both the campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
Hasn’t the last four years proved to us that President Obama and his apologists in Congress will come up with a new government-run or funded solution for every perceived economic or social ill?

And does anyone doubt that the video represents the feelings of most Democrats?
