In Politics and specially during an election cycle words of each candidate tend to be scrutinized specially if they were spoken years ago. In politics any word can be taken out of context and used to benefit the ends.
It is used by any and all politicians and their campaign managers.
Take the GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s line in 2007 criticizing then Candidate Barack Obama about going after Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan during last election campaign.
“It’s not worth moving heaven and earth and spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person.”
Later he clarified by saying(source from Politifact),
“We’ll move everything to get him. But I don’t want to buy into the Democratic pitch that this is all about one person — Osama bin Laden — because after we get him, there’s going to be another and another. This is about Shia and Sunni. This is about Hezbollah and Hamas and al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood. This is a worldwide jihadist effort to try and cause the collapse of all moderate Islamic governments and replace them with a caliphate.
Time for politics in the U.S.! We have already seen dogs dragged into the mix, whether they are inside the car or outside one!
