In yet another example of the kind of slant you can only get from liberal news organizations, politifac gave Mitt Romney its "lie of the year" award. He got it for his claim Jeeps were being made in China.....
that's the "lie of the year."
Forget when Harry Reid accused Romney of
not paying taxes in over ten years. No, that wasn't that big. It certainly
wasn't that much of a big deal since Harry felt comfortable enough to then move
on to call Romney a poor example for the Mormon faith. Nothing wrong with that
either I guess.
Forget when Obama's campaign manager Stephanie Cutter
stated Romney could be guilty of a felony. No, that's not that bad either. Heck,
a few weeks later when President Obama faced the press he was asked point blank
about this accusation and it's effect on the "tone" of the campaigns. Obama's
response "well, lets be clear, no one has said Romney is a felon." BTW, there was
no follow up on this false statement from the President. Nope, Cutter's remarks
and Obama's false statement later are not that bad.
It's not even
that bad when an Obama Superpac put out an ad accusing Romney of causing a
woman's death from cancer. The ad featured a man who had been laid off by a
company purchased from Bain Capital. His wife still had a job, but lost it a few
years later herself. Still a few years later she unfortunately was diagnosed
with cancer and ended up passing away. No, that wasn't the lie of the
The lie of the year..... was Romney when he stated Jeeps are
being made in China.... Are you friggin kidding me?
