Happy New Year! (And the Best Line from 2012)

Monday, December 31st, 2012

As we say goodbye to 2012 and ring in 2013, it’s worth citing the single best line of the year. It was delivered by President Obama during the second debate with former Gov. Mitt Romney when the Republican challenger, licking his chops, thought he was about to take a huge bite of his Democratic opponent on the subject of the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. Romney was insisting that Obama had never called the attack an act of terror, which, in fact, he had. And as Romney persisted in trying to catch the president in what he thought was a lie, Obama coolly replied, “Please proceed, governor.” Happy New Year!
