It will be interesting to see how the Romney-Ryan campaign responds. So far, they seem nonplussed.
As widely reported, Romney pollster Neil Newhouse, when asked about the near-unanimous fact-check condemnation of the campaign's false charge regarding Welfare work waivers, said earlier this week, "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers."
In other words, we don't care about the truth.
Chuck Todd, meanwhile, is reporting this evening that the Romney campaign is generally unconcerned about today's uproar over the dishonesty of Ryan's speech. According to Todd, as the Romney campaign sees it, media criticism doesn't matter because the media's credibility is extremely low, and the public perceives the media as partisan and biased in any event.
Todd is also saying, however, that the campaign is pushing back a bit on the Janesville plant lie. Apparently, that particular lie, blaming Obama for something that occurred before he took office, might be a bit much, even for Mitt Romney.
But that pushback consists of their arguing that the Janesville lie is true, not stepping back from their assertions.
