Dick Polman (and Paul Krugman) explains how Romney either blatantly lied last Tuesday night or he's woefully misinformed. Whichever the case, this occurrence alone should preclude Romney from becoming president.

Thanks to the newly awoken independents, we may not have to worry:
The big challenge for Romney would come later, if he wins the GOP nomination. Uttering falsehoods about why we went to war – particularly in an autumn debate - probably wouldn’t fly with swing-voting independents, most of whom now believe that the invasion was a mistake and that the ruling Republicans misled the nation. In 2008, no Republican can win if he leaves the impression that he will be as averse to factual reality as the man he seeks to replace.
