Romney's attack on Obama's welfare waivers overlook one important point. That is, that the charge is completely bogus, earning him Politifact's pants-on-fire rating, and the Washington Post's highest rating of four Pinnochios. Factcheck.org calls it false and even a Republican architect of the law, Ron Haskins, told NPR: "There's no plausible scenario under which it really constitutes a serious attack on welfare reform." In spite of that, Romney continues to tell this big lie. Who does that?
Now that Romney has selected a career Wisconsin politician as his running mate, it might be a good time to look back at how others have responded to lying Wisconsin politicians.
