Fearful of appearing biased, the elite political press failed to call sufficient attention to the Republican Party's radical agenda and disdain for facts. The result is that in the name of balance, the press actually put its thumb on the scale, and prevented a true reckoning.

What I do disagree with is pretending that any of us have the slightest idea what Romney would actually do as president. I don't think he knows. He certainly hasn't told us.

Haven't seen one of those yellow bracelets yet. I'm sure they're coming. We should all wear both of them as we are all both of them, for to LIVE is to LIE.

Can Mitt's Big Lies Lead the Way Come Election Day?

Jerry Lanson | Posted 12.19.2012 | Politics

Mitt Romney at times seems close to closing that sale with the entire American electorate. In just a few more weeks, with a bit of luck and his bushel of billionaire bucks, he just might beat Barack Obama to become the 45th president of the United States.
