Columnist should use full quote

-A A +A

Dear Editor,
I was very disappointed to read Jay Miller’s  Sunday column. Although usually a good read, Miller repeats the egregious edit of Obama’s  July 13 remarks regarding business creation.
The omission of six intervening sentences between  “You didn’t get there on your own.” and “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.” is egregious, to say the least. This is hardly distinct from picking out any set of words to “quote” anyone as saying whatever calumny you wish to spread.
While our common political liars behave this way frequently, I had come to think better of Miller. In particular, the full transcript (see  factcheck.org/2012/07/you-didnt-build-that-uncut-and-unedited/)  shows “that” refers to at least roads and bridges if  not the entire American business and governmental  system. Whatever you think of Obama as President  or politician, such arrant misrepresentation should not be considered acceptable in a decent society.
