Joy Behar misquotes Romney's 'fire people' comment

Joy Behar

A comment Mitt Romney made about firing workers during a breakfast with the Chamber of Commerce on Monday is still stirring up conversation. During Thursday's "The View," co-hosts Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck debated the perception of Romney's quote. But Behar had the wrong quote in mind. "It speaks to a tone deafness on his part because just to use the phrase 'I like to fire people' does not make him look good," Behar said.

Never mind putting the quote in context, which makes a world of difference, Behar didn't even get the quote right in its out-of-context form. Romney actually said "I like being able to fire people." The "being able" changes the the meaning of the quote from actually liking the act of firing a worker to enjoying the option of firing a worker.
