Mitt Romney: Untruths, Wholly Untrue, And Nothing But Untruths

While we are on the subject of the GOP and lying…

Mitt Romney is really a master of this Republican trait.

He has the uncanny ability to look people in the eye and lie like a cheap rug on a concrete floor…

And the national press won’t call out anyone for lying anymore since the GOP has convinced them that facts are relative to one’s political views….

Sorry.  A fact is a fact is a fact.  Period.

We’ve just fallen through the looking glass into an unreal world that doesn’t recognize this simple truth….

Here are Paul Krugman’s comments from today’s New York Times:

I mean, is there anything at all in Romney’s stump speech that’s true? It’s all based on attacking Obama for apologizing for America, which he didn’t, on making deep cuts in defense, which he also didn’t, and on being a radical redistributionist who wants equality of outcomes, which he isn’t. When the issue turns to jobs, Romney makes false assertions both about Obama’s record and about his own. I can’t find a single true assertion anywhere.

    Every politician embellishes the truth , so Romney is no different than most. However, when you string together enough half-truths, unsubstantiated statements devoid of fact and outright lies, then that becomes habitual. Bain Capital sole existence is to create wealth for it’s investors/stockholders, not to create jobs which “Willard” claims. The jobs that are created are simply a by-product of whether the acquisition of a company will yield a lucrative return on investment. If the company fails, then it files bankruptcy & restructures ,or closes shop, but either way the jobs are lost as well for that company. Bain will be just fine. That is a fact!
