GOPers hoped the leak of the 14-year-old audio tape of Obama advocating "re-distribution" would wipe out the stink from the Romney video, and many media outlets helps them along, featuring it highly. Of course, few mentioned that there might be more to that story, besides the age of it, since in classic Breitbart fashion the clip was obviously yanked out of context. Last night NBC published transcript that shows that besides young Obama's brief mention of "re-distribution" he also talks about "competition" and more. "I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make sure that everybody's got a shot. How do we pool resources at the same time as we decentralize delivery systems in ways that both foster competition, can work in the marketplace, and can foster innovation at the local level and can be tailored to particular communities."
