The Romney campaign’s latest attempt to obscure its candidate’s true position on the auto bailout appears to be backfiring, as Romney has found himself under fire for releasing one of the least honest ads of the entire 2012 campaign.

As Sam Stein of The Huffington Post explains, the ad uses deceptive wording to obscure both Romney’s and President Obama’s true positions on the auto industry. It says that the president “took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy,” without mentioning that he also provided government support to help the companies survive the process — or that Romney himself wrote an op-ed titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt,” and slammed the bailout as “crony capitalism.” It also cites the Detroit News’ endorsement of Romney as evidence of his support of the auto industry, without mentioning that the endorsement specifically criticized Romney’s “wrong-headedness on the auto bailout.”

Most egregiously, the ad repeats Romney’s lie that Jeep is considering moving its production from Ohio to China — a whopper that Chrysler itself forcefully debunked last week.

While the ad does not flatly lie, as Romney did, it accuses President Obama of selling “Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China.” Left unsaid is the fact that Fiat — the Italian company that owns Chrysler — is expanding production in China to meet rising demand, but not taking a single job out of Ohio in the process.

The Obama campaign swiftly responded to Romney’s misleading ad with a spot of its own, which will run in Ohio.

The ad, titled “Collapse,” points out that Chrysler rebuked Romney’s false claim about Jeep, and notes that Jeep is actually adding jobs in Ohio. “Mitt Romney on Ohio Jobs: wrong then, dishonest now,” the ad concludes.

Former President Bill Clinton also weighed in on the controversy, slamming Romney’s ad as “the biggest load of bull in the world.”

Romney’s reliance on the easily debunked Jeep lie suggests that, as Greg Sargent puts it in The Plum Line, Romney has run out of answers on the auto bailout. Throughout the course of the campaign Romney has attacked the Obama administration’s actions, falsely asserted that he supported early government intervention, and even claimed that Obama followed his advice on how to save the auto industry. None of it has worked, and — largely because of his weak record on the auto bailout — Romney has been unable to move up in the polls in Ohio. Now he’s been reduced to repeating an easily debunked lie in an attempt to scare voters into his camp.

That certainly doesn’t seem like the strategy of a campaign that is confident that it will carry the state.

          I can see why you are voteing for Romney you are as big a liar and a fat mouth as he is, so it seems normal for you, you have opened my eyes now I know why he has followers, you all are just as bad as him, so it seems okay.

          • K_O_N_G

            Every grade school bully has “toadies”. Weaker kids who follow because he makes them feel important. They cater to his whims and do his bidding out of fear and insecurity.

            kbcab is a textbook example.

          • old_blu

            I tried to post this to you earlier but, I don’t know?

            You are right Chistmas Story comes to mind, and old “Yellow eyes” he does kinda remind me of Romney.

    • kbcab

      …and Obama is a lying muslim who hates America…

      • neece00

        and you’re a bigot

        • kbcab

          I didn’t say S**t about the mans race , it doesn’t matter to me what color the president is as long as he’s American and Honest , get off the race card if you can’t come up with anything logical…

          • neece00

            when you refer to him as muslim you are using the race card and he loves his country as much as your millionaire. It does bother you that he is black because you can’t get past the fact that he is in the white house. That he is the leader of this country and that he is kind, civilized, honorable and a decent person.

          • Neeceoo, I get the feeling that many poster are actually members of the white supremist groups. They eventually either let it slip or are lying to themselves. As Shakespeare said, “To thine own self be true and it follows that you cans’t be false to any man.

          • WhutHeSaid

            Stop lying. We all know you are a bigot, YOU know you are a bigot. What’s left to lie about?

          • old_blu

            You didn’t have to say anything about his “RACE” there are many ways to be a bigot, and hating someone for his religious beliefs is one of them, not that I agree he is muslim, but you are still a “BIGOT”. So you brought up the “race card”.

            Thank you neece for pointing it out, and good morning.

          • neece00

            good morning to you old friend; old_blu.

          • I agree with everyone else, you are a bigot.

          • You don’t have to. All presidents have had a measure of respect until this one and there is only one thing different about him and the others.

          • kbcab

            Maggie , You’re wrong , there are several differences and I could probably name a lot of them but the comment would be way to long , it’s just some people , like you , choose to ignore them untill it’s too late. I voted for the guy , I just made a misstake and now am wide awake for this election and see the real truth…

      • YepThatTell

        Such BS, kbcab…I have seen the opposite every day that Barack Obama has been our President of the United States. He even cares about the haters such as yourself, who have nothing substantive to say, just play into the Republican’s agenda of fostering divisiveness, fear-mongering and prejudice and bringing out the worst in far too many Americans who pretend that they’re ‘good Christians’.

        • I beginning to see all these lies and the lies of his paid trolls backfiring on Romney. It’s bringing out the Democrats to defend Obama. This is turning in his favor. I can feel it.

      • You are as big a liar as Romney and Ryan.

      • Show me in the Constitution where a Muslim could not be President. Do you even know any Muslims? Half of my wife’s family is Muslim and the other half is Christian. Everyone respects each other and gets along fine.

        • neece00

          You are right, whether he is Muslim, black, red, Mormon or purple; none of this matters. The person and what he stands for and believes in, is what we should be voting on and that is why Barack has my vote.

          • old_blu

            Well maybe not Mormon. LOL

      • BDC_57

        I would rather have a honest muslim than a lieing mormon like romney.

      • The truth hurts you lying bully types who resort to nasty name calling. President Obama has never been a Muslim, you racist whack job. He spent the first four years of school: 2 of them in the St. Francis of Assissi Catholic Church and two of them in a public school that said Christian prayers in the mornings. When he lived with his grandparents, they attended the United Christian Church. He continued to attend this church when he was in college and in 1998 joined Reverend Wright’s Baptist Church. He left that church in 2009 and now attends Baptist services at Camp David on Sunday.

        I don’t know what church you belong to but it is certainly not Christian as the church I grew up in taught us not to hate and not to lie.

        • kbcab

          He’s a muslim now and has been for a long time , that’s what muslims do , they lie and connive and scheme to convert others or get them to follow their teachings , and one more thing , no one said anything nasty in the comment , so why don’t you think before you accuse…

  • How can people continue to follow a man that has been proven an outright liar time and time again?

    This is beyond mere spin, which both candidates have employed. Neutral fact checkers have outright caught him out again and again!

    • kbcab

      You are talking about Obama aren’t you…

      • neece00

        and your smoking crack!

      • Stop taking Oxy and get your head on straight! Romney is probably the worst excuse for a human being, let alone a candidate for President! Why don’t you look at the links where he is talking about how FEMA is immoral, and now is denying he said that! BUT, there is a video and in his own words he did. THAT is Romney, THAT is the creep that wants to tear this country apart and put it back together as a dictatorship with Romney at the helm. He wants us all to say “heil Romney!” AND that kbcab, is the reality YOU cannot accept!

      The thing that bothers me is that the only place we hear about the lies is on Huffington Post, National Memo, Jon Stewart or from Rachel Maddow. Mitt should be required to stand up to his lie and apologize to the American people.

        • jarheadgene

          ONLY if he gets elected under all his lies…….Our country cannot afford another Marie Antoinette, George Bush Scumbag.

    • Actually, the Romney campaign has gone on record defending the lie, asserting that it is “100%” true. They believe, perhaps rightly so, that their base will certainly believe the lie, and quite possibly those who are still undecided will believe it, too.

      Anyway, Romney does not believe in “apologizing for America,” and he considers himself and others of his ilk America — unlike the 47%.

    • mbm

      According to Mitt’s supporters, it is the liberal media controlling information. After watching in total dismay Mitt weasel, twist & change the facts, blame & accuse falsely & wondering how a self-proclaimed ‘man of faith’ could lie thru his teeth and live with himself. Fact checkers & reporters have now amassed 34+ volumes chronicling Mitt’s lies, and yet he persistently presses on continuing to obfuscate again and again, while rallying support. His masterful deception has become an art form, placing even consummate politicians into the category of amateur. While I deliberately ignored ‘religion’ as a serious variable until recently, I finally investigated the concept of ‘Lying for the Lord’ a Mormon teaching premise to be used for the ‘greater good’. Finally, it explains it all. The persistent & effortless lies done without conscience or remorse, far beyond the usual political hoodwinking, and the masterful performance guilelessly done for Mitt’s ‘greater good’. Either that or he is a sociopath.

      • neece00

        That is pretty impressive, I thought I knew a lot about the Mormon religion but I missed that one. They actually teach the congregation to lie because it benefits the church. Wow

      • jarheadgene

        I HOPE there are “REAL” Christians reading this and catch some of this. Those Mormon practices of Lying for the Lord is just one more reason to realize that MORMONS ARE NOT CHRISTIANS>…….. I’ll say it again…..MORMONS are NOT Christians. DO NOT VOTE for that LIAR !

    • A Lair sir look what they do no respect for the president of the united states of a america a lair sir really do you think that is the way of the world when children are told to go to bed because the president is speaking when race is a issue that not address when the color of your skin is the number one driver of the day. Not policy not fairness are the willingness to check fact your Self Romney if not what we need it need you and I togather not a part. But the working Class I do,nt have a Billion are a million are thousand are a hunderd How about Health insurance a 401 and a little social surcurity for my. A lair lair in the Senate a lair to the president …

  • Shocked I tell ya. I’m shocked that Romney would tell a lie. This one is just stupid and has been debunked over and over again since he opined so blatantly regarding Jeep. I certainly hope that the good citizens of Ohio aren’t buying this twaddle from the snake-oil seller and his dishonest crew. This latest attempt to pull to wool over the eyes of the rubes has a certain hint of desperation too it. Shame on you Mitt.

    • kbcab

      Yeah , obama would never lie or do anything dis-honest like that …

      • ryueire

        All your ilk cannot really defend Romney so all that you can do is keep turning onto Obama or anyone who sees through the bullshit Romney and the extreme right push as their truth. It is pretty sad there are people like you who would vote for blatantly bad policy makers that would directly harm… YOU.

        But go on, keep telling yourself that the current president is no good… because? He is the wrong color, or has the wrong sounding name so he cannot be American, or wasn’t born a blue blood entitled arrogant prick that you’ve become comfortable seeing in the White House.

        • jarheadgene

        That’s right, he would NOT!!!

      • Nice try at deflection, but you missed the mark. Would you be willing to prove your point by pointing out a campaign video from the Obama campaign that even comes close to the level of Mitt’s latest lie? If not it would be best to not comment in the first place.

        • I h ave listened to every speech President Obama made. I have listened to all of Romney’s speeches. I have never heard Obama lie.

  • The blatant, easily proven lies smell, nay reek, of desperation, and I love it!

    Does Romney have a truthful bone in his body?

  • Shame on ALL republicans for thier twisted, misconceptions and out-and-out LIES, and HATE…i have NEVER seen such hatred, mean, and lies in ANY election thus far. these Elections are now all about MONEY…..soliciting constantly…..WE THE PEOPLE, shoud ask repeatedly for CONGRESS to STOP all the BIG MONEY, and only allow each candidate a certain amout for campaigning….Period !!! NOTICE THAT THE REPUBLICANS ARE NOT TELLING US WHAT THEY WILL DO TO HELP CREATED JOBS…OR MOVE OUR COUNTRY FORWARD…..NO, IT’S ALL ABOUT HOW BAD THE OTHER PERSON IS. thier plans are a SECRET….

    • DemCommonSense

      I saw a Republican post in response to another article that said “the only thing Republicans can hope for is that Romney loses” and stated that he wants his party back; one that would work with the other side. He wants his party back from the radicals that are controlling it now. As Democrats, we need to be careful to NOT lump all republicans together. There are many out there who do not agree with the direction their party is headed. My take would be “Shame on the Republicans in Congress for allowing themselves to be manipulated by the radical right of their party”. There need to be term limits on the Congress and this will cease to be an issue.

    • grammyjill

      Like I’ve said before, Romney has said he wants to use force in Iran and wants to “get more involved” in Syria. That means he’ll need more of our children for fodder. About 12 million of them.

      • Grammy, as I have said before, those who want to go to war do not lead the soldiers into battle, nor do thier children serve.

        Ann Romney said Mitt’s mission was serving our country and likened it to the war that the VietNam vets served in.

        • grammyjill

          I really, really don’t want that man to win. I think at this point that Sandy may help the president. The whole country can see how the president is handleing it and he’s doing damn good. He is with gov. Christie in NJ now and Christie has praised the President in his speed in helping. And that he is doing everything right. And Mitt is sitting in Ohio collecting can goods which the red cross can’t use and he knows it. Maybe he could go to Mass. and help there, although they would probably throw him out.

    • Dmullins84

      I firmly believe there’s a small minority of Rich Republican Millionaires, and Billionaires, in this country Setting on two Trillion Dollars, working side by side with Wall Street Banker’s and Republican Politicians who have their sites set on bringing down our President, by suppressing the votes this Election, destroying Jobs, and reducing wages holding the Middle Class, and poor afloat. Historically, the Republican Parties have always been closely associated, and in bed with the Wall Street Billionaires who gives them Millions of Campaign Dollar’s every Election buying influence, and access, to get their radical agenda approved. The Democrats, especially the “Blue Dog’s” from Conservative States also deals with these crooks at a smaller scale. These high rollers are supposed to be doing something for the country like creating jobs, and helping the country that provided them with the opportunity to get where they are. Believe me they are not doing that. They are sheltering their monies in off shore and Swiss country Bank accounts to avoid paying taxes to the very country they earned their riches from. I am a retired Military Man and don’t think it’s fair for so few to have so much, and don’t want to pay their fair share. This great country can do better and we need to start now.

  • Is any one surprised? He has become such a perfect liar that now he beleives what he spewking with our allies. Oh I dread him working with our allies, God forbid

  • Americkan

    The Republican party has no use for the middle class and Mitt is dreaming if he thinks he can fool the american public into believing him. Mitt just switches back and forth over and over so I guess he may as well resort to outright lies.

    • Throw enough SH.T on the wall and some of it will stick is Romney’s game.

  • old_blu

    How can anyone support Romney when what he got nominated on is not what he is running on now? If they nominated him because he is a conservitive what are they following him now for?

  • latebloomingrandma

    This morning on “Morning Joe”, the conservative columnist David Brooks was on, touting why a Romney presidency would probably be more successful than a 2nd term for Obama. It bothered him “a little” that Romney is a flip flopper, and thought it may work to his advantage?!! How’s that for spin? It makes Romney “pragmatic” and he will do what needs to be done. He expects that the Democratic Senate won’t obstruct him as the Repubs did for Obama . (Did he just admit that Democrats are more concerned about the country, thus more patriotic than Republicans?) He expects that the Republicans would continue to obstruct Obama, they would see no reason to go to the center. He never said THAT THEY ARE ALL NUTS. He suspects that romney will be able to accomplish big things. I’m not buying any of it. How can you believe someone who lies with such ease? I could never figure out the unusual amount of hatred for this President. My husband insists it’s all about race. I think it’s because Obama came out of nowhere, and captured the imagination of the people and won the big prize without paying his dues and waiting his “turn”. Ambitious men lust after this prize for years and here is this upstart. It really ticks off the Mitt Romney’s of the country who plan to put people into the presidency when it’s their turn.

    • neece00

      So the Republicans are admitting that they are obstructionist. If Romney gets in, the Democrats will work with him but the Republican won’t work with Barack.

      • old_blu

        With a 9% approval rating they have to admit it. I read this in the Huf post just yesterday.

        Last month, a New York Times poll found that Congress’ approval rating fell to an all-time low of 9 percent. Meanwhile, a recent Gallup poll found that 11 percent of people found polygamy “morally acceptable.” Additionally, 30 percent of Americans expressed approval of pornography.

    • Del WS

      Wow, you just shocked me! David Brooks was one of the few conservative Republicans who usually seemed fair-minded and I heard him speak favorably of our President more than once.

    Mitt will say anything and do anything to achieve his goal of becoming POTUS. God help us all if he does.

  • Since the auto rescue, GM, Ford, and Chrysler are experiencing increases in sales of 10, 13, and 14 percent, respectively. Obama’s approach, which Romney vehemently opposed, helped save as many as 1.3 million jobs and the administration’s new fuel efficiency standards and incentives included in the 2009 stimulus are driving American-made cars to be become more competitive in an international market.

  • He is still playing ad spots that lie about the Obama “changes” to Welfare that “drop the work requirements”. Interestingly, Romney supports the Republican governors who asked Obama to make the changes. Romney’s ignorance on foreign policy and the strength of our military was beautifully countered by Obama’s response to Romney’s claim that we had fewer ships than we did in 1916. Obama’s response, “we also have fewer horses and fewer bayonets…” Although we have fewer ships in our Navy today than in 1916,we have more than we did when Obama took office, and our military is better prepared for ANY military need now than during the Bush years.

  • Romney was a CEO of a company that cared only about profit…even if it meant telling whooper lies to achieve that goal. He is doing the same thing with his run for the presidency. He and his family claim he is a nice guy and empathic towards all yet behind that forced grin is a devious and and dishonest person.

  • marknails

    Mr. Romney has stated that he wants to eliminate capitol gains tax. If I’m not mistaken his taxes last year were all on his capitol gains. In my opinion if he is elected and eliminates capitol gains, he would then pay no tax what so ever. In my opinion everything that Romney spews forth is to quote president Clinton, ” the biggest load of bull in the world”

  • He should be immediately removed from running and thrown into jail with his other lieing croonies, Bush and Cheney. These men are not True Americans. They extort, manipulate and downright lie. They will stop at nothing to further the benefits for themselves and their croonies regardless of the price the rest of our Citizens will have to pay. They do not represent our American ideology. Romney has sold out American business to China cost jobs to our citizens, while lining his own pockets and this is down right treasonist, in my book. He isn’t fit to be President of our Great Nation. Now again he has crossed the line, with this add!!. Obama is for all Americans. He wants to bring back jobs to our country, improve education, our infrastructure and improve our health care for all. He has done more for America than the whole eight destructive years of the prior administration. RE-Elect President Obama and VP Biden for four more years.

      That’s funny Skip. And your Congress spent $40 million plus investigating whether Clinton got a BJ in the White House. I’m sure you feel your dollars were well spent. Good return on investment… There’s a huge crowbar separation between Clinton and a pathological liar / sociopath like Mitt Romney. He’s trying to close a deal and will say anything to get you and anyone else to sign on the dotted line. You’ll find out that you thought you were buying a Cadillac and when you go to pick it up, it’s a Yugo. Good luck on that one, Pal…

    Romney and Ryan have misrepresented and outright lied through every step of this campaign.

    Romney refuses to release his tax records, why, simple they demonstrate that he avoids taxes by stretching deductions beyond the law, a trick of the wealthy, knowing that the IRS only sample verifies tax returns and it is laborious to verify complex returns of the wealthy.

    In the First Debate Romney steam rolled his way through a litinay of FALSE, untrue claims that are counter to his beleifs and how he would govern, in hopes the less informed voter would accept his deceit, the polls indicate that the low informed accepted his outright lies.

    Romney in the last debate again deceived the public claiming he agreed with President Obama on nearly every issue. Let me assure you the Republican Cartel does not agree with President Obama on 98% of the issues, for instance look at what the Republicans in Congress did to hold back our Economic Recovery.

    Anyone with an once of brain knows that the Republican Cartel, given the opportunity, will turn our country and our economy back to the same flawed policies that have HAUNTED our economy for decades, Every time the Republicans have been in control our Economy has stagnated to Recession and Unemployment has increased dramaticaly, just an outright FACT.

    Another little recognized FACT, the areas of our country where the Republicans dominate the REGISTERED VOTER REGISTRATIONS are the POOREST performing ECONOMIC areas of our country. Unfortunately the LOW INFORMATION REPUBLICAN has been screwing himself ECONOMICALY for years!

  • Chrysler has built Jeep Grand Cherokees in China for the last 10 years. It has made the Grand Cherokee one of the most popular vehicles for rural mail carriers since it is a right-hand drive. These vehicles are mainly for the Aussie, UK and Hong Kong markets. So, investors are happy with this situation and no U.S. jobs are lost at all.

    I heard a good joke about R’money and his falsehoods this morning.

    Bye and bye, R’money died and went up to meet St. Peter at Heaven’s Gate. What he saw there were lots and lots of clocks hanging around. He asked St. Peter, “What are all the clocks about?”
    St. Peter said that each clock represents an individual and the hands indicate how many times a person lies.
    R’money points at one clock that had no hands. “Who’s clock is that?” R’money asks. St. Peter says, “Mother Theresa’s . She never lied”.
    R’money pointed to another clock where the hands were pointed at 2. “Whose clock is that?” asks R’money. “Abraham Lincoln”, says St. Peter. “He only lied a couple of times.”
    “Well, where is my clock?” asks R’money.

    St. Peter replies, “Oh, Jesus took that in his office. He’s using it as a ceiling fan.”

  • Ant Duke

    Let me be the first to make an observation as a foreigner. If I understand just a teeny weeny bit about the ethics and morality of your two Presidential candidates, Rmoney will see Sandy’s rebuilding as a chance for Wall Street and Corporate America to make money. Obama will see it as proof of the citizens’ will to come together as one and reconstruction as an opportunity for work. Just sayin’….

  • Lovefacts

    Jeep has spoken out about Romney stating this in a speech and this ad. Both times, they’ve said it was untrue=lie. Jeep said they were bringing on a third shift of 1,100 jobs at their US plants. They’re in talks with China about opening a plant there to produce right-hand drive jeeps for sale in China. To have Romney and his supporters to continue telling these lies is irresponsible. I shudder at the though of him as president.

  • emadis41

    It seems that the “Left Leaning Media” is giving Romney a slake, no one is checking his lies, and no one is calling him for his outrageous claims. Even when some of his lies were checked, the facts disappear overnight and he continues with his “BULL” including the 23 million unemployed, and the 9 million job difference between the 5.4% and the 7.8% unemployment, both do not add up.
    It is even outrageous when many newspapers endorsed him for these mere lies “He will save the Economy”, without bothering looking at his record, his Vulture “Bain” Capitalism, or his tenure as a Governor of MA, both do not qualify him for the enormous task ahead. His outsourcing of jobs and when he left MA his favorability was in at 30%. His tax cutting in MA resulted in sharp rise in state fees, such as licenses and recording, and other increases that affect the Middle Class more than the rich. Add to this his clownish foreign policy and his lack of knowledge of military and defense.
    Romney policies stuck in reverse gear, and does not fit the need of our future. His Ayn Rand views leads only to doom, not prosperity. Cutting the spending on Education, Science, Research, Environment Protection is a Cave era mentality. Cutting Gov spending and cutting taxes will result in shrinking the GDP by a much larger ratio as Gov. spending circulates many times in the national economy.

  • Mitt’s voters knows well that he is lying, but their dislike/hatred for this President is so inmense that they will rather vote for a liar than vote for a man of integrity. It says a lot of them. Some of them just can’t accept that a man of color is in the White House. What bothers me is that a great number of those folks call themselves Christian and God fearing. What a bunch of hypocrites.

      Lying or not, If you can get the job done, i’m voting for you….

      If you can go back that far.. What their doing now is what they continually stated they would do, “Anybody But Obama!”.. When they yelled this, they took into account ANYONE.. from Donald Duck to the clown of lies (remember the incarcerated felon that the pubs gravitated toward for fifteen minutes?). They even made it their war cry.. Small wonder no one can use logic and truth to dissuade these idiots, they’re simply dinosaurs awaiting their demise and they want to go out with notoriety, much like serial killers and yellow bellied assassins.

  • JLP

    OMG!!!! Both sides lie!!!! This is a race for the presidency!!!!! You’re all stupid!!!! Obama lies too!!! One of his ads say he’s brought our heros home from war: I find this funny, since my husband just got deployed………

    • iAintNoSculler

      Romney is as full of sheet as a Xmas turkey! Everything that comes out of his piehole aims below the belt. If the American public is worried about it’s children being bullied, they should consider themselves. Do not be fooled American public! These are the tactics of a bully.

      • JLP

        WOW!!!!!! Please don’t vote….

        • neece00

          JLP, I do appreciate that your husband is doing his duty to the country and I salute him. But think about your candidate that you are supporting, he does not know the meaning of telling the truth. He is a mean spirited, bully,arrogant, patronizing person who has never in his life known the meaning of serving his country.

        • BDC_57

          is that supose to scare us not vote like all teabagger do try to scare us well it not working.

    • grammyjill

      I am sorry your husband got deployed. I sorta know what that feels like but from a Mom’s angle. But you have to look at the bigger picture. Obama said, and it is in writing, that all of the troops will be home by the end of 2014. Romney wants to stay there longer. He also wants to use force in Iran and he wants to go into Syria. With the current president, your husband will come home and stay here. With Romney, home may only be a short visit.
      I am voting to keep my son home.

  • JLP

    Green: Dems want us to go green, have you noticed the price tag on all the “Green” stuff they want us to buy??????? Can the middle class afford that? Our taxes will be raised, no matter whose in office, yet I personally won’t see a raise in my paycheck. Will you?

  • This is the only thing that the GOP does well……tell a lie long enough and soon the people will believe it.

  • onedonewong

    Once again Romney shins the light on Barak’s endless attempt to send more US jobs overseas while using taxpayer $$$. GM now produces 7 out of every 10 vehicles some where other than the US and is in the process of moving its R&D to China..not my words but the head of GM.
    Jeep is in fact planning on shifting more of their production to China that’s also a fact.
    Just like the shovel ready jobs that has been a boon to China. Jobs in the US???? Not on your life

  • EARTHMAN1

    No, the “biggest load…” was the one Bill Clinton was caught shooting down the throat and onto Monica Lewinsky’s little polka dot dress.

    And did you see the photo of Hillary scoping out the beautiful breasts of Christine Aguilar? I swear she had an erection.

    The point is, both of the Clinton’s are narcissistic psychopaths as are the Obama’s, or whatever their name is.

    It’s natural that psychopaths would have a coven to protect and promote the other.

    The problem is ordinary people can’t see beyond celebrity and into the pit where these people really live.

    I want the Obama’s and the Clinton’s and their coven out of my country!

    Who is Clinton to say that Romney gave us the biggest Bull. Geezus, the biggest Bull on the American people was perpetrated by Clinton in his infamous statement, ” I did not have sex with that woman.” And yet, all you people that hover around Clinton and follow him like an idiot believe in what he says….the biggest bull shit politician of them all is Clinton and Obama…….nothing more and nothing less.

    • grammyjill

      We happen to be a little more grown up than you. I don’t give a damn who he was screwing. I hired him to do a job, which he did very well. Obama is following a proven plan and also doing a very good job. Romney, on the other hand, was a really lousy governor. He did as governor alot of really sucky things. I don’t want him to have the chance to undo everything good that has been done. We are finally pulling up out of the whole the republicans put us in and I don’t want Romney and his ilk to push us back over the edge. And they will!

    • Yes, Clinton lied about (not even) screwing a woman. RMoney lies to screw the whole nation.

    • ransol, there are ten commandments, not one. Number 9 is bearing false witness. It also says if you break one of the commandments you have broken them all. I would never have believed that a party would be a party of liars, but Romney’s taking liberties with the truth makes him an adulterer also. right wing posters on this board with their obvious lies is convincing me that Republicans are liars. BTW, I am not a Democrat. I don’t believe in any party as the division is hurting this country.

  • zeb01

    FOX entities will not even show Newt Gingrich’s primary statements calling Romney a liar and stating that “You cannot have an honest debate with Mitt Romney because he doesn’t tell the truth.” It’s unbelievable that the Obama campaign and the Democrat Super-Pacs have not inundated the swing states with ads denoting Gingrich’s statements that are all over Youtube.

  • Its time to stand for a position of changer and not allow money to rule every position of america when poor peoples voice be herd a ladder out of proverty exits for those that worker and study hard be given that chance to advance to have protection from those huge company for rights as a worker and a human being I do,nt need my work check cash and be force to buy groceries from a employer that his consin is a doctor and sale everything to me three time the amount. America we need OBama for all the people any you to..

  • How can you tell when RMONEY (sic) is lying?

    His lips are moving.

  • Romney is a liar, period!! By now, we all KNOW he will say or do anything to get to the White House!! The man outright lies; does he really believe the 99 percent of Americans are stupid, uneducated, and that they don’t know anything????? He already believes 47 percent are mooches and take no responsibility for their lives and emphasized his job was NOT to worry about them!! It is clear to me that Romney, indeed, thinks the people that make up the 99 percent (THE NONE WEALTHY) are stupid, uneducated, and that we cannot tell the difference between facts and HIS lies and distortions. The guy is NOT fit to be President, if he had it his way, he would have a nation of nothing but millionaires and billionaires!!! Think, people, Romney is NOT for the people, he is for the MONEY and how much more he can add to his coffers!!!

  • why does part of the people say they are going to vote for this liar is just unbelieveable to me. My grandaughter can point him out as the guy who fired big bird and she is 3yrs old. now if she can see through him for what he is why can’t the adults?

    I really cannot understand how people follow a shameless liar who keeps lying each and everyday? What are those who follow romney around thinking? Romney as far as we know him in Massachussetts sees lying like a routine exercise in a gym. Just see how many lies romney has publicly told between primaries and now. It’s shameful to watch romney’s lies and flipflopping televised abroad.

  • Romney’s Dad George Romney made a crap company called AMC….it bought Jeep and Harley Davidson and came up with the brilliant Gremlin. Mitt bought out Gateway Computers and used his father’s MO……namely hiring cheap temporary workers unskilled and uncaring, even to the point of using failed and used parts. After his consultant companies soaked up retirement funds, state and federal aid dollars, he parted out the result of scrap to China. Now, Gateway is a China company…..Bain and Mitt laughed all the way to the bank and ridiculed those who lost jobs as the insignificant 47%. No one wants those and the companies that bought them back hide those vehicles and products as something from the industrial dark ages of Republican rule.
