This week’s winner is GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who said, wistfully, that things just aren’t like they used to be.
“You know, in the past, when people pointed out that something was inaccurate, why, campaigns pulled the ad,” Romney said on a radio show. “They were embarrassed. Today, they just blast ahead. You know, the various fact checkers look at some of these charges in the Obama ads and they say that they’re wrong, and inaccurate, and yet he just keeps on running them.”
This from someone who just received a maximum Four Pinocchios from Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler for an ad about Obama’s welfare policies that even Newt said there was no proof for.
(For the record: we’ve never, ever, gotten more than one Pinocchio.)
