Was it Mitt’s Big Lie about Jeep moving to China, so reckless his oligarchic peers were obliged to refute it? His refusal to open his tax returns? Clint’s empty chair? That “I’m-not-familiar-with-precisely-what-I-said” comment? The Etch-A-Sketch prediction by Eric Fernstrom? His goofy expedition to England, Israel, and Poland? None of the above! Given that Obama’s deft campaign was the primary reason for Romney’s stinging defeat, Mitt’s big stumble was his politically fatal 47-percent-are-moochers howler supposedly offered off-the-record.
Americans detest a hypocrite.
