    Amusingly, Romney's other big downfall, his 47% comments, were a distortion from Erik Erickson that was also picked up by Drudge. When will you people figure out that the right wing noise machine actually harms your own interests?

    The lie of 2013 will be "I [Barack Obama] do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.""

    And that's why Romney wouldn't get elected, even if they didn't have Obama running against him. Basically, he tells one thing to group A, tells the opposite thing to Group B, and then tells something totally different to Group C, while vehemently denying he said anything to Groups A or B.

    When you can't even keep your own story straight when you're just running for the office, how can we expect you to keep your story straight when you're actually in the office?

    The republicans didn't lose because of changing cultures or changing voter demographics, or anything like that. They lost because they nominated a moron.

    Yeah, that's the real lie of the year.

    When you get elected to President by just telling people what they want to hear, you are the best liar by far.

    What logical boss would hire a guy for another four years, who hadn't accomplished anything in four years, and said it was all the fault of the employee before him, and that he only needed four more years to actually get something done?

    Fifty one per cent of the American voters, that's who.

    One of the greats was accusing Romney of being responsible for some woman's death years after her husband was laid off from a company shut down by Bain Capital. Or the one ion 2008 where some candidate said that he would end the wars and reduce the deficit.

    The 47% remark was right on. But yeah, stupid of Romney to tell the truth if he really wanted to be Prez.

    His own top advisor coined the term. What an abortion of a candidate and campaign.

    Amen!

    Romney was such a liar that his entire campaign should have been on the "Lie of The Year" list.

    Obama voters don't have enough fingers and toes to count to a trillion.
