>>Monday, Obama told Larry King in an interview that the ad was "not something that we had anything to do with or were aware of, and that frankly, given what it looks like, we don't have the technical capacity to create something like this."<<
This is the quote I referred to. I have to take him at his word, for now at least, on the first part but as for the second he sounds naive and ignorant if he really thinks a company like Blue State Digital or one of it's employees couldn't make a few simple alterations to an already existing commercial.
Or maybe he thinks DeVellis made the spot from scratch. Produced it, came up with a budget, hired director and crew, actors, got studio space, post production facilities, etc. I'd hate to think he was that clueless but it would explain what he said.
