Did Romney really say that? A lot of people on Twitter think so. The quote originally appeared in the Free Wood Post and was re-published at GhanaNation.com. So it must be true!

We feel a bit sick too. Apparently none of these people read the Free Wood Post’s disclaimer:
All news articles contained within FreeWoodPost.com are fiction, and presumably fake news.
It isn’t the first time the Left has disseminated fake quotes to make the Romneys look bad. With 58 days left to Election Day, we can be pretty sure it won’t be the last.
