In a new ad for New Hampshire voters, Mitt Romney claims:

In the next ten years, we’ll see more progress,more change than the world has seen in the last ten centuries.

You read that correctly. The next ten years will run roughshod over theEnlightenment, the French Revolution, the formation of American democracy, theprinting press, interchangeable parts, division of labor, the end of slavery, nucleartechnology, antiseptics, the theory of gravity, the theory ofrelativity, the rise of communism, two world wars, universal suffrage, landingon the moon, and the Internet.
