Tonight, CBS aired a 60 Minutes interview with President Obama. But
curiously enough, the news magazine show did not air a clip of Obama admitting
to interviewer Steve Kroft that some of his campaign ads contain mistakes and
that some even "go overboard."



CBS
describes the clip this way: "President Obama says some of his campaign
ads might 'go overboard' or contain mistakes, but most of them simply highlight
the differences between him and Gov. Romney."



"Look,
the fact-checkers have had problems with the ads on both sides," Kroft
says to Obama in the unaired clip, "and say they've been misleading and in
some cases just not true. Does that disturb you? I mean, some of them are your
ads."



Obama
responds: "Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are
there mistakes that are made, areas where there is no doubt somebody could
dispute how we are presenting things? You know, that happens in politics."



Kroft
responds: "Aren't the American entitled to the truth? Or a better version
of it?"



"The
truth of the matter is, most of the time we're having a vigorous debate about a
vision for the country," Obama says. "And, you know, there's a lot at
stake in this election. So is it going to be sharp sometimes? Absolutely. But
will the American people ultimately have a good sense of where I want to take
the country and where Gov. Romney takes the country? I think they will."



Indeed,
it's a newsworthy admission, but one that didn't make it into the news

    CBS is in the tank for Empty Suit. No surprise they cut out when he puts his foot in his mouth.

    Reminds me of a couple of other Obama quote to Jeremiah Wright: "Your problem is that you think you have to tell the truth." and to one of his former professor backers to whom he had made a promise to talk to his class. "Come on man you should know better when politicians make promises."
    How did we ever elect this man president of our country????

    Unfortunately, the type of your question explanation is almost completely illegible. Is that an honest cliche, or is the heavy hand of liberalism quashing a story it does not like?
