I have a great deal of respect for PolitiFact, so I will not try and argue against their lie of the year. However, what's interesting is what the users think. PolitiFact took a poll of what users think was the biggest lie of the year. Here are the results: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2011/dec/20/lie-year-2011-readers-poll-results/ Most of the respondants agree that the biggest lie of the year is: "The economic stimulus created "zero jobs." -- The National Republican Senatorial Committee and other Republicans" What is also telling is that the other big responses were lies coming from Republican candidates. Have they no integrity?
