How can this be? The media have been incessantly trying to tell us that Romney has had a totally gaffe-y month!
Twitter users provide some answers.

One Twitter user kindly reminds Obama For America press secretary Ben LaBolt of a little foot-in-mouth remark.
And, wrong again, Ben LaBolt!
BuzzFeed seems to be the hardest hit.
Oh, snap! Still, BuzzFeed valiantly tries to further the false narrative with a new, lame angle.
Ben Smith even repeats the already disproved claim that Obama’s campaign was all about small-dollar donors. Why let pesky facts get in the way, when there is a desperate narrative to attempt?
Bless their hearts!
Here’s the real truth: The overwhelming response to Romney and the RNC? Obama built that. Thanks, champ! Mitt Romney tweeted something the other day that rings true.
Today's increase in the unemployment rate is a blow to struggling middle-class families. Americans deserve better and we can do better.—

Clearly, citizens think so as well. And they are betting on Mitt Romney.
