This is a little petty considering what’s at stake this election season. But it also highlights the RNC’s willingness to perpetuate a lie and the DNC’s willingness to pound Romney on his lack of transparency. And it was all done over one cake.
From Huffington Post:
The Republican National Committee mocked President Barack Obama on Friday, sending a cake to the Democratic National Committee with a backhanded message commemorating Obama’s upcoming birthday.
“You didn’t bake this,” reads text on the cake.
The message on the cake mocks President Obama’s campaign speech last month on small businesses and infrastructure which the Romney campaign has edited and used repeatedly to lie to voters.
Melanie Rousell at the DNC was quick to respond:
“This is typical of Mitt Romney’s approach to the middle class,” she said. “He wants to ‘Let them eat cake!’ while robbing them blind. We sent the cake back to the RNC, along with a copy of the Tax Center’s report on Mitt Romney’s tax plan.”
