This is nothing short of astonishing.

A campaign based on falsehood and dishonesty does not have long legs,” Romney said on “Fox and Friends,” later adding: “The president only has one thing going, and that is constant attacks on me. They’re dishonest. They’re misdirected. And I think the American people recognize that kind of politics as something of the past. It may work in Chicago, but it’s not going to work across America.”

So says the man who has done little else for the past year but spout non-stop lies about the president.

But there's a larger problem with this. It makes Willard look weak.

Can you imagine Obama going on Ed Schultz and whining about how Willard keeps fibbing about him? I can't either.

Can you help us out?
