Romney doctors debate clips to put into ads

Mitt Romney was caught making false statements during the third debate which fact checkers jumped on.  That did not stop him from taking the video clips from the debates and making ads of them.

Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post writes:  

Mitt Romney has taken two moments from the third presidential debate — both of which were faulted by fact checkers — and turned them into television ads.

In both cases, Romney also misspoke, making his statements even less accurate. The campaign commercial for the “apology tour” selectively snips out Romney’s errors, but apparently it was impossible to clean up Romney’s error on the size of the Navy.
