Barack Obama’s excuse for lying in his campaign ads? His “team” is to blame, but not him:
“The truth is, we put out tons of ads, and there have been two or three times where we’ve slipped beneath my standards, where it was kind of a stretch,” he told MTV News. “And when that happens, I tell my team, ‘Pull it down.'”
If the ads are beneath your standards, why approve them in the first place?
The buck stops elsewhere, clearly.
