Talk about stuff that matters.

"Simple statement or obfuscation?" - "What do they say about socialism, Mr. Speaker? It's a great plan until you run out of other people's money. Guess what? We've run out of other people's money..."



This question is not about the topic of the statement. It is about over-simplification and misrepresentation. It's about using a phrase out of a speech in a misleading way, taking it out of context (e.g., Romney ad on Obama's speech to small businesses). When does "spin" become a lie? What should be done to eliminate campaigns which seek to sway through misrepresentation?
