David Gregory Misquotes President, Acts as Romney Surrogate – VIDEO

It’s pretty pathetic when a so-called journalist can’t get a basic quote right while framing a question about the Libya attacks, but David Gregory managed to do it. The misquote is at the top of the video, where Gregory claims the “president has said as recently as May of this year that al Qaeda has not had a chance to rebuild, that al Qaeda has been defeated.”

Except that’s not what the president said at all. In his speech in Afghanistan on May 1st, the president said this:…

…That’s right out of Karl Rove’s playbook, that question. Plouffe understandably took offense to it, calling it “preposterous and really offensive,” focusing back on the president’s actual provable record. I understand why Plouffe didn’t correct him, but NBC News should really make David Gregory retract the entire claim that was the underpinnings of a disingenuous question meant to echo stupid and dangerous lies and smears, like John McCain’s suggestion this morning that Harry Reid doesn’t care about Ambassador Stevens’ death.
