MITT ROMNEY’S LIES ROUNDUP FOR JUNE 2012!

June 30, 2012  By Jack Jodell

Since Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has spent his entire political life waffling on issues and telling one massive lie after another, I thought it would be appropriate to list a number of these lies at the end of each month all the way up until the election. I do this in the hope that the vast number of lies he tells may convince any fence-straddlers to vote against him, on the grounds that he thoroughly lacks moral character and is completely unstable and untrustworthy. This pathetic rich boy will say or do virtually ANYTHING if he thinks he can get a vote out of it. The lies tallied here are numerous, but by no means 100% complete. To list EVERY lie Romney tells each day would require this blog to easily be twice or three times its average posting size, and I won’t put you through all of that. Consider this, then, a mere digest of Mitt Romney’s monthly lies. Just watch, though, as Romney’s Pinocchio-nose keeps growing with each of these whoppers!

1). Romney told CSPAN, “I didn’t go to law school. I didn’t practice law. But I like the idea of arguing points back and forth…” Why, then, does Romney’s website claim “…he earned dual degrees from Harvard Law and Harvard Business School”? Looks like it’s just Mitt carelessly rambling lies again!

2). Later, he told Bob Schieffer on Face The Nation, “Bob, I don’t have a political career. I served as governor for four years. I spent my life in the private sector.” Not so fast, Mittens. You know damn well you first ran for a Senate seat in 1994 and were defeated by Ted Kennedy. THEN you ran for governor and won in 2002. THEN you ran for President in 2008, but lost the nomination to John McCain. For a guy who doesn’t “have a political career”, you have spent many years running for office! Why don’t you just tell the truth and say you’ve been skating by on the millions you made previously at Bain Capital outsourcing American jobs and skimming off of the companies you plundered there, and have been running for office on and off ever since?

3). Also on CBS, Romney stated that “[President Obama] was President for three and a half years and did nothing on immigration. He had a Democrat House and Senate, did nothing of a permanent or long-term basis.” This, of course, is a giant lie. The Democrats, urged on by Obama, twice tried to pass the DREAM Act. However, Romney doesn’t bother to mention that his Senate REPUBLICANS filibustered this bill both times, first on September 21, 2010, and then again on December 18, 2010!

Readers over at the blog MAD MIKE’S AMERICA (http://madmikesamerica.com/ ) were very generous in providing a number of websites which feature Romney’s lies, from A – Z. These can be found at http://www.usmessageboard.com/politics/229681-updated-all-of-romneys-lies-in-one-place.html#post5480558. Until next month, then, we thank Mad Mike and urge you to keep those constant Romney lies a-comin’! I’ll post the next installment on or about July 31!

    Romney’s nose is getting so long that he will trip on it before the election.

      Darlene,
      It just shows how morally and intellectually bankrupt the 1%ers are to be running this pampered rich boy for the presidency.

  2. I have to add Romney’s whopper that the American Care Act is going to cost the country trillions. No, the Congressional Budget Office scored it and found it’s going to save hundreds of billions over its first 10 years alone. And on the way to doing that, it’s going to save countless individuals and families from winding up in bankruptcy court because they or someone in their family had a serious disease or illness not covered, or not fully covered, by an insurance company. And some of those who would’ve been told they were not covered if it wasn’t for Obamacare, would have been told that because, A, an insurance company would have disqualified them on a fine-print technicality just because they had a big claim in progress; or B, because the insured surpassed their lifetime limit. Under Obamacare, those things are forbidden — something I’m sure the consummately dishonest Romney knows.

      How right you are, S.W.! It is becoming abundantly clear that we must keep that pathological liar out of the White House and that we cannot afford even a small dose of Romneynomics!
