Why Does Mitt Romney Lie So Easy And Often? – ‘Mitt Romney Has Been Telling A Huge Whopper About The Auto Industry, And His Campaign Is Finally Paying For It’
Remember this? Mitt Romney’s first ad against President Obama?
‘November 23rd, 2011’
(CNN) – ‘GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Wednesday stood by his first TV ad this week that stirred controversy for taking President Barack Obama’s comments out of context’.
“There was no hidden effort on the part of our campaign,” Romney said at a campaign stop in Des Moines, Iowa’.
‘The ad features then-candidate Obama on the campaign trail in 2008, saying “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.”
‘But the 60-second spot failed to point out that Obama was actually quoting his opponent, Republican Sen. John McCain, at the time’.

And now this.
Boy America! Don’t you want a President who just openly and so easily lies about everything so that it’s impossible to debate actuall issues?
I DO! I DO ! I DO!
‘Mitt Romney is facing intense pushback today over a new Ohio campaign ad that appears to suggest — falsely — that Chrysler is moving U.S. jobs to China’.
‘The ad doubles down on a statement that Romney made on the campaign trail last week, when he told a crowd in Defiance, Ohio, that Chrysler was moving production on its Jeep models from Ohio to China’.
“I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China,” Romney said. “I will fight for every good job in America.”
‘The claim is completely misleading and false, and provoked an outcry from Democrats and reporters’.
‘The report, from Bloomberg, actually said that Chrysler is talking about adding Jeep production in China in order to serve the Chinese market. Jeep production in North America would continue unchanged’.
‘But despite the fact that Romney’s claim was demonstrably wrong, his campaign is doubling down in the new ad, which went on air this weekend in Ohio’.
“Obama took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy, and sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China,” the ad says. “Mitt Romney will fight for every American job.”
‘Romney campaign aides have pointed out that the ad doesn’t actually say that Chrysler is moving U.S. jobs to China’.
‘Still, that message is strongly implied’.
‘Ads that mislead or stretch the truth are nothing new for presidential campaigns’.
‘But this ad — and Romney’s comments last week — has prompted harsh criticism from the media, likely because it strikes reporters as not only disingenuous, but irresponsible’.
‘For Romney to suggest that the livelihoods of specific voters — namely workers at the Jeep plant in Toledo — are in danger in order to win an election comes across to many as the type of fear-mongering that no one wants in a president’.
