A neologism entered the 2012 presidential campaign on Tuesday.
Mitt Romney, speaking to Fox News, responded to President Barack Obama calling his tax plan "Romney Hood." Obama said that the rich would see their taxes lowered while the middle class would pay more, citing a Tax Policy Center study.
"We have been watching the president say a lot of things about me and my policies -- and they're just not right," Romney said. "And if I were to coin a term, it would be 'Obamaloney.'"
"He's serving up a dish which is simply in contradiction with the truth."
The attack appeared to take a page from former rival Newt Gingrich, who told Romney to drop the "pious baloney" in a January debate in New Hampshire.
