The Wisdom of Mitt Romney

Doing his best parsing on his marching with Martin Luther King lie:
"I'm an English literature major," he added, after the questions didn't stop. "When we say I saw the Patriots win the World Series, it doesn't necessarily mean you were there."

Possibly. But it usually means that you saw it on TV and more importantly that the [team specified] actually won the [championship specified]. In the case of his father marching with MLK, Jr., it was never televised because it never actually happened. One doesn't speak metaphorically about how he saw the Seattle Mariners win a World Series.
