Obama: Republican Campaign Based on Fictional Obama

From USA Today
"Gov. Romney spent a lot of time talking about himself and he spent a lot of time talking about me. He didn't spend a lot of time talking about the American people and how their lives will get better," the president says of last week's GOP convention. "I guess their premise is that the American people will be convinced, if we just get rid of Obama, then somehow that will be enough."

We all know, the republicans have spent a lot of time creating a fictional Obama. They've been blinded by an irrational animosity for Obama. This is actually a very kind and generous way to say that the republicans are lying their arses off:
The president takes his own slap at how he's been treated by the other side, saying they "have spent a lot of time creating a fictional Barack Obama who is supposedly taking the work out of welfare reform, or doesn't think small businesses built their own businesses." A Romney ad that accuses Obama of gutting the welfare law by offering state waivers has been debunked by independent fact-checkers. The waivers offer states flexibility but not relief from the work requirement. And the president says Republicans are pulling out of context and mischaracterizing his "you didn't build that" remark. Those disputed allegations have become "the centerpieces of their campaigns," he says.
