Allow me to explain: Remember newspapers? And headlines? And what happened when headlines were WRONG? Right. The next day, or week, or month, the paper would print a retraction. Which would appear on page...15, in small letters...which meant the original headline was all anyone remembered because NO ONE reads retractions.
Guess what? Americans are no different today, in the era of immediate communication. They still ignore the truth in the form of retractions, so Mitt Romney can say anything he wants, anytime he wants and get away with it. His campaign will then get their retraction out in the form of a press release, which everyone, other than we liberals, will ignore.
