John Heilemann on Morning Joe: Mitt Romney’s Out-of-Context Quotes Sound Just As Bad in Context


John Heilemann joined the Morning Joe panel in New Hampshire today — the morning of the New Hampshire primary election — to discuss the “brutal greatest hits reel” that Team Obama is no doubt compiling against GOP front-runner Mitt Romney, including “Corporations are people, too” and yesterday’s “I like being able to fire people” remark. “The problem is that, ripped out of context the statement sounds absolutely horrible, but even in context … it reads bad on the page, but it looks worse in video,” Heilemann said.
