Mitt Romney should know better. Romney, a probable candidate for president in 2012, is now out with a book, politicking with the best of them. No one should be surprised that he is criticizing President Obama.
Unfortunately, Romney is also exaggerating his charges to make political points. One recent Romney attack was the GOP talking point that Obama has been going around the world apologizing for America.
Republicans don't believe in apologies–except when they do. (We recall, for instance, George W. Bush once saying that he would approach the international community with modesty, something he failed utterly to do.)
PolitiFact checked out the GOP meme and—oops!—it's false. The truth is complex, as it often is, and Romney and other critics don't admit complexity on this (and many other) topics.
Dang facts! Damn complexity!
This sort of reality keeps messing up the GOP's revisionist history. Read the details here.
