CNN's Don Lemon tore into Mitt Romney over the weekend, skewering the candidate's response to the deadly attack in Libya.

The Romney campaign has been fiercely criticized for hitting out at the White House's response to the attack, which killed four American diplomats. Lemon echoed the criticism of pundits and politicians on "CNN Newsroom," when he blasted Romney's response as "a rush to judgement and then lying to cover it up."

He took issue with the timing as well as the accuracy of Romney's remarks. "Clinton's statement in no way apologizes or sympathizes with the attackers," Lemon declared. "Anyone who tells you it did is lying. If you believe that it did, you are misguided."

He said that after Romney doubled down on his statement, his surrogates went on TV and proceeded to blame the media for "their own mistake." Lemon played a clip of his recent interview with Romney surrogate Richard Williamson. The guest had laughed off one of Lemon's questions, which he called "silly."

"There are no silly questions, Mr. Ambassador," the CNN anchor said later. He said that Romney "dealt a major blow to his campaign," while giving President Obama "a gift."

"How could a man in a campaign who throws around the word "patriot" so often, get this one so wrong?" Lemon asked.

He teased the segment before it aired on Sunday night, writing, "When a candidate or his surrogates lie, they must be called out!" and "I hope the #Romney campaign is watching."

The ONLY thing that could put Romney in office after his many examples of being a pathological liar?

After proving he is a man who made his money by bankrupting American companies, and throwing Americans out of work?

After he has consistantly refused to reveal his tax history, because he very likely didn't pay any taxes in past years?

After proof that he abused the family animals, attacked and assaulted a fellow student, tricked a legally blind professor into crashing into a glass door?

After proof that he lied about his state of residency when he ran for Governor, and has been caught lying, and insulting people, making racist statements, throughout this campaign?

After proving himself to be a person with nothing but contempt for any Americans who are not in the top one percent? Even though he pays a lower rate than any of those he demonizes?
And he lied about those 46.6 in ur society all along?

After telling more lies and being more disliked than any person I can ever recall running for POTUS?

After prof that even those on the right, don't like him, and have called him out for his inept decision making?

What is the only thing that could put
Romney in the White House?

Very simple, Karl Rove throws another election.

That is the ONLY way that Romney could win this election, given his crashing numbers, now even disaproval numbers on improving the economy, very high disapprovals in foreign policy, his deficit in the likely voter women's vote and hugely low numbers in likely voter Latino numbers. Constant, proven stupidity, foot in mouth non stop, along with the most poorly run convention and campaign in history.

Only another Rovarian fiasco like 2000, could create a Romney win.

I am so glad that this time we will have spotters all over this country, watching everything!

We also need to warn people to ignore any robo calls, directing people where to vote, or if they need to vote.

Let's hope Rove's legendary election throwing dirty tricks are by now, familiar enough that Americans are onto his tactics.

The fact that Rove himself destroyed all of the other Republican contenders, is proof that Romney was the biggest crook of any of them.
