& Barack Obama
Mitt Romney's first campaign ad in November 2011 falsely attributed the quote to Obama, but in fact Obama was quoting John McCain. Obama's actual words: "Senator McCain`s campaign actually said, and I quote, "If we keep talking about the economy, we`re going to lose."" Mitt Romney acknowledges the purposeful editing but was still running the ad seven months later.
