Pesky Facts

Um, what?

Critics say the Romney campaign has been misrepresenting welfare issues, and The Washington Post's "Fact Checker" awarded a Romney ad “four Pinocchios.” The Romney campaign dismisses the criticism.

“Fact checkers come to this with their own sets of thoughts and beliefs, and we’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers.”
