Mitt Romney is the most dishonest politician in modern political history. He has run a campaign that has been thoroughly debunked for its lies from his welfare ads to the “you didn’t build that” lie to his lies about Medicare.
I can’t think of another politician who can lie with this much ease. He will look people straight in the face or on TV and claim ridiculous, crazy nonsensical blather. That’s his whole campaign. He’s debating a bizarro world version of President Obama not unlike Clint Eastwood’s fictional discussion with an empty chair. Well … even though I do not understand why President Obama did not call Romney out for his lies more forcefully … the facts are the facts. And the media is starting to fact check.
Romney’s history of being a pathological liar is out there in the luminiferous aether. It’s just out there waiting to hit you in the face like a piece of hail during a tornado … you just have to go outside.
I have already completed a very thorough fact check of Romney’s lies at the debate HERE in case you missed it. Here it comes.
The New York Times Editorial Board HERE:
“Virtually every time Mr. Romney spoke, he misrepresented the platform on which he and Paul Ryan are actually running.”
“And as it turns out, winning a debate is surprisingly easy when a candidate decides he can say anything and expect to get away with it.”
“At Last Night’s Debate: Romney Told 27 Myths In 38 Minutes”
“The Etch a Sketch was in full effect at the first presidential debate in Denver on Wednesday night.”
The New Yorker HERE:
“Romney won the debate in no small part because he adopted a policy of simply lying about his policies.”
Daily Kos HERE:
“Mitt Romney won round one. He was aggressive, he was decisive, he delivered. Of course he also lied through his teeth for most of the debate. “
Dylan Matthews HERE:
Romney says most small businesses will see a tax hit. Here’s why he’s wrong.
Kevin Drum says Romney is lying about green energy HERE.
Paul Krugman HERE:
“And the fact is that everything Obama said was basically true, while much of what Romney said was either outright false or so misleading as to be the moral equivalent of a lie.”
Chris Hayes HERE:
Bush at Oct 3 2000 debate “After my plan is in place, the wealthiest Americans will pay a higher percentage of taxes then they do today,”
The Washington Post editorial board HERE:
