What's up with Politicians saying stupid stuff then pretending they didn't?

“I don’t understand why the police officers across this country don’t stand up, collectively, and say: ‘We’re gonna go on strike. We’re not gonna protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe.’ After all, police officers want to go home to their families, and we’re doing everything we can to make their job more difficult – and more importantly, more dangerous – by leaving guns in the hands of people who shouldn’t have them, and letting people who have those guns, and letting people who have those guns buy things like armor-piercing bullets,” Bloomberg complained.



several days later ...

Mayor Bloomberg appeared to distance himself Tuesday from comments he made on a talk show suggesting that the nation’s police officers should “go on strike” to demand tougher gun laws.
[...]
“I didn’t mean literally go on strike,” he said at a Tuesday event about the economic impact of same-sex marriage. “In fact, in New York, they can’t go on strike. There’s a law against it.”

Meh nothing new here. Been like this as long as their has been politicians.

The difference is now they have a much more difficult time withstanding the glare of the interwebs and 'alternate' news sources.

Daddy always said when we went hunting, "Be careful not to crap and fall back in it." Really messed up everything including the hunt. Unless you've ever done such in full hunting gear, of in longjohn's or even coveralls, you can't appreciate that statement.

But that is what some have been doing lately and frequently.
