Just because you say something, doesn't make it true. I gave an example from your cited article that disproves "fibs, half truths and flat out lies that Obama and Biden both told."

In another words he's criticizing how Obama pulled the troops out and how fast he pulled the troops out. But Obama is not lying here. He is making a "reasonable interpretation". That's fine. ...
Romney stated "I think it's tragic", referring to the troop withdrawal due to the end of the Iraq war, but wanted to keep troops in Iraq. If the war is over, why keep troops in Iraq, unless one doesn't want to recognize the war is over ? To Romney the end of the Iraq war as demonstrated by withdrawing troops was tragic.

A reasonable interpretation is that Romney believes the end of the Iraq war was tragic, unless he believes Hussein is directing a war from the grave.
