Readers react to this year's choice for PolitiFact Lie of the Year -- Mitt Romney's claim that Chrysler was going to move Jeep production to China at the cost of American jobs.
Mitt Romney's claim about Jeep moving production to China at the expense of American jobs was last-ditch effort to win the election, but it hit a roadblock: the facts.
