    DAVID LETTERMAN, HOST: Here’s what upset me last night, this playing fast and loose with facts. And the President Obama cites the op-ed piece that Romney wrote about Detroit, “Let them go bankrupt, let them go bankrupt,†and last night he brings it up again. “Oh, no, Governor, you said let them go bankrupt, blah blah blah, let them go bankrupt.†And Mitt said, “No, no, check the thing, check the thing, check the thing.â€

    Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying. And so what we found out today or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece. I felt discouraged.

    RACHEL MADDOW: Because the “Let Detroit go bankrupt†headline you feel like was inappropriate?

    LETTERMAN: Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he’s the president of course he’s right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that.

    _________________________________________________________
    Romney did NOT write the headline for this Op-Ed.

    LOL. What?? Did he have that attitude when Bush was in office? It's news to him that politicians lie? Look no further than Benghazi.

    When Howard gets wind of this he may refuse to go on Dave's show and bring the" Stern effect" to his ratings. Dave's just protecting his job.

    I bet Dave believes that Obama went on an apology tour when he first took office.
    I guess Obama will be going on Wendy Williams show in the future and not Letterman.
    :lol:

    Letterman was wrong -- thank God, Rachel Maddow explained why Obama was right.

    Of course, the part where Letterman says, "I don't know what I'm talking about" is left out.

    Watch the video.

    Rachel explains that if those car companies followed Romney's advice, they would be gone by now, liquidated.

    There was no private financing to prop them up -- even Bain rejected them.

    So yes, they would've gone bankrupt.

    Letterman was doing his "I'm an idiot" routine.

    He does that a lot to get interesting answers from his guests.

    He was trying to be the "common man," setting himself for Rachel Maddow to correct him.

    He did the same "I'm an idiot" routine with David Cameron, the prime minister of Britain, last month, asking him stupid questions.
