An interesting bit from Mitt Romney's campaign tour through South Carolina on Friday morning has made it to the top of Internet videos that went viral this weekend.

Romney, addressing a crowd at Staples, was interrupted by Glen Johnson, a reporter with Associated Press, who countered his claims of having been independent from the political machinery and lobbyists of Washington.

That is not true - Ron Kaufman is a lobbyist, Johnson said, referring to Romney's senior advisor.

Romney launched into a semantic discussion... admitting Kaufman was a lobbyist, all the while attempting to deny Johnson's indirect claim that Romney was lying about not being associated with lobbyists.
