I caught this segment with MSNBC's Chuck Todd this Thursday morning and almost thought I was listening to a segment on Fox, because they've generally been the ones pushing this Washington Post story and carrying water for the Romney campaign, pretending that he wasn't still at the helm at Bain while they were shipping jobs overseas.

Karoli already broke this down for us here: Romney's Desperate Need for Counterspin Captures FactCheck.org. Never mind as Karoli explained in her post, and Stephanie Cutter in the clip above, that there is ample evidence that Mitt Romney was still at Bain Capital and the ads the Obama campaign has been running are factual -- Chuck Todd was going to badger her about whether or not they should be taking the ads down or not.

And there is absolutely no comparison between the two campaigns when it comes to the amount of lying they've been doing. As Blue Texan reminded us this week in his post on Ann Romney carping about negative campaigning, Steve Benen has been attempting to keep track of Romney's lies, and the list is so long it makes your head hurt. The latest edition is here: Chronicling Mitt's Mendacity, Vol. XXIV.
