Many column inches have been dedicated to Mitt Romney’s stylistic debate victory, while little has been said about the many liberties he took with the facts. Particularly breathtaking was his claim to be unaware that there were tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, and that if he knew there were, he would get a new accountant even though he was the CEO of a firm that pioneered outsourcing.
Although endless arguments can be made about the intent behind the fuzzy math of tax policies, such inconsistencies, including his manifesting a concern about the middle class after denigrating them to wealthy fundraisers, should never go unchallenged.
The president may have declined to do so, but so has the media.
