Romney Ad Exposes Media's Chronic Inability To Use The Word 'Lie' | Jason Linkins | Posted 01.22.2012 | Media

GOP 2012 contender Mitt Romney's recent ad has gotten a ton of attention from the press because it contains a brief clip of President Barack Obama saying these words, consecutively, in order: "If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose." BOOM! What a clip, right? Why did Barack Obama say such a thing in public? Oh, that's right, he said those words consecutively and in order because back in 2008, an aide to John McCain said those words consecutively and in order, and Obama quoted that aide to use the words against McCain. As everyone points out, Romney's use of the words out of context is misleading. But it seems that what very few people are willing to say, as Too Much Joy once sang, is: "That's a lie. You're a liar."

This week, rioters took to the streets of Athens, Greece -- enraged by their government's economic austerity measures. In Canada, rioters took to the streets of Vancouver -- enraged by... the loss of a hockey game. Stateside, Anthony Weiner finally stepped down, joining the ranks of the unemployed -- a category multimillionaire Mitt Romney also claimed membership in, telling a group of unemployed Floridians who had just described their struggles finding a job, "I'm also unemployed." It was a moment the New York Times labeled "awkward" -- probably not a word you want associated with your presidential run (who can forget President Dukakis, President Gore, President Dole and President Kerry?). Of course, voters will forgive the occasional awkward moment -- but moments that are awkward and disconnected from reality? Not so much. Happy Father's Day to all our HuffPost Dads!
