The Romney Retract-o-Matic

The last time the Romney campain retched at a story about the candidate's business record, it demanded that the Washington Post issue a retraction.

With no new information to go on, nothing fresh from the Romney campaign (apart from some "nuh-uh" statements from people involved in aspects of the story, which are not the same things as retractions), the Post denied the request.

Today, the Romney campaign took issue with a story about the candidate's business record, and demanded that the Boston Globe issue a rectraction.

With no new information to go on, nothing fresh from the Romney campaign, the Globe denied the request.

Next time, though.
