  •  I don't disagree that he was playing a part. (0+ / 0-)

    Giving Rachel a chance to clarify a confusing issue.
    But he has been around long enough to know how the Republicans slice and dice.  And I think that most of Dave's audience is probably on the liberal side. The sliced up version of this will air to people who don't know better and think Dave turned against the President. Dave has power and influence. Words matter. And the way that Dave used them was very bad. If the election really is close, it could affect perception. I don't really know if it will change how anyone votes. I just don't like giving out free ammunition to the other side.
    I expected more from a man who has spent his lifetime using words.
