    Citing itself, especially so profligately, was certainly bad practice. All of the self-citations do seem to link either to original research or to properly cited pages, so this isn't a case of failing to cite at all (unless I missed one).

    This sort of article drives me crazy. Items such as

    "75. Mitt Romney criticizes 'Obamacare' but it is functionally identical to Romneycare."

    are not facts. The statement that Obama care is "functionally identical" to Romneycare is a debatable point, not a fact.

    I love how idiots can't tell the difference between fact and opinion.

    Rather distressed to find myself in agreement with Lakhota and the other leftists, but it's a valid point.

    Romney's apologists say we should ignore all his other flaws (screwball religion, robotic personality, flip-flopping on important issues) because he's got this wonderful business background. And we need a business guy right now.

    But you dig into his business background, and what you see is a guy who made the rich richer at the expense of everyone else.

    In short, it's like looking and John Kerry's war record, and finding out that he used to pal around with Jane Fonda.
