When all else fails, Photoshop.
Former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt today unveiled a new book detailing the immense work he and his transition team put into preparing for a potential Mitt Romney presidency. Only one part of the new book is, well, a bit faked.
The picture on page 4 of the Romney Readiness Project 2012 shows Leavitt shaking hands with Romney at the 2006 National Governors Association meeting. It's a good shot to include in telling the story about all of Leavitt's work for Romney that ended up being shelved when President Barack Obama won re-election.
The photo, unfortunately, has been changed to black out three other governors who photo-bombed the Leavitt-Romney moment.
In the real photo, by The Associated Press's Charles Dharapak, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and two other governors appear between Leavitt and Romney; the transition book, though, just shows blackness between the two.
