He explained that he didn’t fight back against Romney’s so-called dishonest responses at the time because he “wanted to fact-check. I wanted to make sure he was as totally dishonest as I thought he was.” The two candidates have hit back and forth at each other this week, taking turns calling the other “untrustworthy” in similar campaign ads.
