5. Ezra really pisses me off with this shit!

Behind this argument, however, is a very clever policy two-step that’s less about who pays taxes now and more about who is going to pay to reduce the deficit in the coming years. Here’s how it works.

There wasn't anything clever about Romney's remarks. Nothing in Mitt's comments has anything to do with a "clever policy two-step." That's simply bullshit.
Ezra did the same think with the Chinese factory video, which is to ascribe motives to Mitt that he hadn't intended.

This leaked video (via Political Wire) from a Mitt Romney fundraiser is being sold as “Romney talks about Bain profiting from Chinese slave labor.” That’s wrong. There’s no evidence that any of the labor at the factory Romney is discussing was slave labor. There’s no evidence it’s even mildly coerced labor. In fact, the entire point of the story is that the jobs from that factory, despite the seemingly awful conditions, are in tremendous demand.

Remember Mitt's Chinese factory video? It looks like the same venue as the current videos
