PolitiFact “Lie of the Year” turns out to be true. Surely the Tampa Bay Times, being ethical journalists and professionals, will publish a retraction and apologize to Romney. [Insert punchline here.]

What with the blizzard of falsehoods blowing out the BO campaign on a daily basis it struck me as strange(I was having a late-onset bout of naivete) that anything Romney said could crack the top 100.

It must be nice to work for a propaganda outlet like the Tampa Bay Times. A steady paycheck, and all the “Dear Leader” ass a person could ever hope to kiss.

Seriously? That was lie of the year? Kind of pales in comparison with Susan Rice and Benghazi, doesn’t it?

You can’t blame any business for trying to make a profit, or trying to avoid tariffs, or getting in on a growing market and making some money. It’s Business 101 that if you don’t have a good price, no one’s going to buy your stuff. What I think they’re doing is they’re going to make Jeeps in China that are for sale in China. They avoid the 25% tariff, which will make them noncompetitive. It makes sense to do it. It make sense to get in on a growing market. What doesn’t make sense is manufacturing Jeeps in the USA, then paying to ship them to China, then paying the 25% tariff, then expecting someone to pay a ridiculous price for a Jeep when you could have made one there for less and been competitive.
