"They can run the campaign that they want, but the truth of the matter is, you can't just make stuff up."
So said President Obama at a press conference Monday, complaining about an attack ad that presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has been running.

Instead, they rely on other people to make stuff up, then cite those "experts" as the source of their wild claims.
