    It must be the case that many Americans recognize his contortions, and will vote for him regardless because they don’t like the president. That’s their right. But if Mr. Romney wins, he’ll set a nasty precedent. Candidates will be justified in assuming not only that they can lie, but that they can tell different lies to different audiences from week to week, and voters will actually reward them.

    I'm no fan of Romney, but I'm pretty sure that precedent was set thousands of years before Romney opened his mouth.

    He's been saying for a couple years now that he wanted to do both tax rate cuts and deduction cuts as part of a tax code simplification. He hasn't been lying - the debate, which was broadcast unedited, exposed the lamestream media and the DNC as liars for falsely reporting on his plan over the past few months.

    Closing GITMO in his first year as I recall.

    Also, if they were troops still in Iraq when took office in Jan '09 his FIRST priority was to bring them home IMMEDIATELY- and I quote "You can take that to the bank!" - must have been Lehmann Brothers.

    I believe with still have, what? Half a division there?

    How about Presidents who lie when they swear to uphold the Constitution and U.S. law?

    He said would work towards it on "day one"!

    Just like Romney would work to repeal Obamacare on "day one"!

    Those "day one" promises sure reel in the suckers, don't they?

    This event will, at best, be a draw for Ryan. The MSM ain't gonna have it any other way. :bluesbrothers:

    On June 5th 2007 Sen. Obama gave a speech at Hampton University. He complained that the Federal Government didn't waive the Stafford Act that requires a community recieving Federal Disaster Relief funds to contribute 10% of what the feds give them for New Orleans as they had for Florida after Andrew hit and for NYC after 9-11.

    Problem is on May 24th 2007, 2 weeks before the speech, the Senate voted to do exactly that. He must have known that little fact being as he was there and voted AGAINST the waiver.

    I guess he doesn't like black people.

    The man is the Liar in Chief.

    Yep -- that single outrageous act of lying totally diffuses any allegations of dishonesty Obama might try to heap on the opposition...You just can't get any more blatant, obvious, and corrupt than that.
