On The Trail

This is what Barack Obama says at a rally in Des Moines:

We can’t afford a politics that’s all about terrorism and ripping people down rather than lifting a country up. We can’t afford a politics based on fear that leaves politicians to think the only way they can look tough on national security is to vote and act and talk just like George W Bush.

This is how the London Telegraph reports it:

Barack Obama unleashed a blistering attack on his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton yesterday, branding her “just like George W Bush”.

Makes for a better headline, I know—but is that all that matters?
