The absolute number priority for the "friends" of the candidates is to
get their "guy" either elected or re-elected. The whole truth comes in
a poor second.
Well this is half true. Team Obama have made a habit of lies and distortions all
the way back to the campaign against Clinton in 08. Even Hilary called Obama a
liar over and over again during her campaign - "shame of you Barack
Obama" (Hilary Clinton). People in the liberal press like to propagate the
lie that both sides lie but that is only half true. The democratic party is
built on lies - especially now when Obama has no record to run on. I would like
to see ONE GOP add this is a lie - ONE! There are none. On the flip side -
factcheck.com has already busted team Obama several times for out right lies. By
the way - factcheck is NOT a conservative organization.
patriot - if you are claiming that only liberals are guilty of lying, then
you're either knowingly lying yourself, or simply ignorant of the truth.The very first ad run by Romney against Obama in November 2011 was an
abject lie. Romney's ad claimed that Obama said 'If we keep talking
about the economy, we'll lose". Both politifact.com and factcheck.org
confirmed Romney's ad was a lie. John McCain was the actual owner of the
quote. No correction nor retraction ever came from the Romney camp.
re:siloObama was quoted (in 2009) as saying something to effect that
if he did not have the economy looking better in 2012 then this would be a one
term proposition. Mitt has quoted that over and over again. I think the point
Mitt was trying to make - which was 100% correct - was the fact that Obama needs
distractions away from his economy today to win in 2012. Even his own liberal
pundits agree with that. Obama has been running from his record for the past
year - and for good reason. As for the quote - supposedly from McCain - not sure
about that. The point however is true - even by the admission of team Obama.
Obama can't run on his record because his initiatives and plans for change
have never been tried. Because of the super-majority rule and filibuster, the
Republicans have effectively blocked all his plans. At no time did he have the
necessary 60 votes in the senate to beat the filibuster. This is good for the
Republicans but bad for America. Obama has been forced to act as Bush III. His
plans have never been tried. Unfortunately,the Democrats will play the same game
with Mitt if he is elected and we will have another four years of gridlock. Bush
News Flash. Obama is going to win this by a landslide.
Did Romney not pay taxes in undisclosed years?
