The Denver Post on Romney’s lie-too-far:
Nothing smells like desperation more than the falsehoods and half-truths coming out of the Romney campaign about Chrysler purportedly moving Jeep manufacturing jobs to China.
The episode has been shameful.
It’s not entirely obvious to me why this lie, of all of Romney’s lies – of all of Romney’s campaign of lies – has generated such fury. “Shameful” is the right word, of course: but how often is that right word used?
But you don’t have to understand it to enjoy it.
Footnote What would really put the icing on
the cake would be for the Detroit News or the Des Moines Register, both of which endorsed Romney but denounced the Jeep bamboozlement, to withdraw the endorsement on the grounds that Romney had proven his unfitness for office. Wildly unlikely, of course. But surely there must be some second thoughts in those editorial offices: especially the News, which Romney mis-cited in his ad as supporting his false claim.
