Chronicling Mitt’s Mendacity

It’s really hard to keep up with the foolishness, not to say out-right lies, of the GOP team.  Here’s a good try by Steve Benen at the MaddowBlog.

 

“In an interview aired this morning with George Stephanopoulos, the host told Mitt Romney that, despite his claims to the contrary, the Obama administration never showed sympathy for attackers in Egypt and Libya. How did the candidate explain the discrepancy? He didn’t — Romney dodged the question and let the lie stand.

Towards the end of the interview, however, Romney looked ahead to the upcoming debates and said he’ll have a challenge to deal with: “[T]he president tends to, how shall I say it, to say things that aren’t true.”

There’s no sense of shame and no sense of irony.

Washington Post/ABC News poll out today shows a plurality of Americans believes the Obama campaign is saying things “it believes to be true” rather than “intentionally misleading people.” On the other hand, a plurality of Americans believes the opposite about the Romney campaign.

If anyone’s wondering why the public has this impression, consider the 34th installment of my weekly series, chronicling Mitt’s mendacity.

1. At a campaign event in Virginia yesterday, Romney said he “couldn’t believe” the president said “if you have a business you didn’t build it, someone else did that.”

Of course he couldn’t believe it — that’s not even close to being true.

2. On Wednesday morning, Romney accused Obama administration officials of issuing an “apology for American values.”

That never happened.

 

and all the rest….
