Mitt Romney might have eeked out an undeserved victory if he hadn’t gone for broke with an easily refutable whopper of a lie in the campaign’s final days.
In Ohio last Friday, Romney let fly the wildly incorrect statement that Chrysler “is thinking of moving all production to China.” Obviously, his goal is to stoke panic in the hearts and minds of the people who live in America’s heartland.
Romney knows he has a big likability deficit to make up since Obama rescued more than a million jobs with the successful bailout of the auto industry. But Romney doesn’t seem to have any strategy in his toolbox other than to lie his way out.
Despite immediate rebuttals from Chrysler, Romney doubled-down on the lie, airing it in commercials in the swing state of Ohio over the weekend
