My choice

PolitiFact, in the Dec. 9 article, The biggest lie, claims that the 2012 lie of the year was the Mitt Romney Jeep claim that President Obama sold Chrysler to the Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China at the cost of American jobs. I thought the biggest lie of the year was when steel worker Joe Soptic claimed that Romney and Bain Capital were responsible for his wife’s death because he had lost his health insurance. Remember the brutal campaign ad? It came out that Joe lied. Joe never mentioned that his wife had her own separate health insurance and that she died five years after Joe was laid off.

I think Romney was taken out of context when he mentioned Jeep, he really meant General Motors who is building plants like crazy in China. PolitiFact’s pick was no surprise.

    As LeBron leaves, keep it classy Miami

    Alright, so James is leaving. We will survive, really. We will miss him for sure.

  • Thanks, LeBron

    Downtown Miami’s resurgence was well under way before The Big 3 arrived, gained momentum alongside four consecutive championship runs and won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

  • Missing him LeBron

    Although devastated by his decision to leave us, I am immensely grateful to LeBron James for what he gave us: the best four years the Miami sports scene has ever experienced.
