In the Illinois Republican presidential primary, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney won big on Tuesday, especially among people at the top of the educational and income scales. The victory speech he delivered, however, seemed geared to the factually challenged.
In the space of a few minutes, Romney lauded the building of the Hoover Dam and the interstate highway systems as two of the nation's greatest accomplishments.

"The truth is our economy is struggling because the government is too big."
