I understand what the good people at CNN are trying to get across. That being the fact that Obama and his goons are lying about Mitt Romney and Bain Capital. But this doesn't mean what CNN wants it to mean:
CNN Accuses Obama of 'Swiftboating' Romney
"Swiftboating," of course, is a word that grew out of the John Kerry, War Hero/John Kerry, Stolen Valor scandal that erupted during the 2004 presidential campaign.
The difference between what the Democrats and much of the mainstream press are doing to Romney and what the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth did to Kerry is this:
The SwiftVets were telling the truth.
A huge difference.
