There's basic dishonesty and then there's f-you dishonesty--dishonesty so blatant, so consciously abusive of facts that everyone knows, that it deserves a category of its own. Kato Keilin: dishonesty. O.J.: f-you dishonesty.

Romney's new ad about Jeeps and Italy is f-you dishonest. You probably know the background. Bloomberg News moved a confusingly worded article last week suggesting, if you didn't read it closely, that Jeep (under Chrysler, owned by Fiat) was sending all its production to China. Romney said this on the trail.

I originally cut Romney a break here--some aide handed him a news article that was sloppily or strangely written, he read it on the fly, he decided to throw it in there. Not such a crime.

But then Chrysler ripped Romney and said no way, this is not true. Chrysler is thinking about putting plants in China down the road to try to increase market share there. But as for the here and now and the U.S. market, Chrysler is not only not cutting back domestic Jeep production but expanding it, investing $500 million in the Toledo, Ohio Jeep plant.

At that point, even most political campaigns would have just dropped it. They wouldn't apologize, because campaigns don't do that, but a normal campaign would just drop it and try to move on.

So what did Romney's campaign do? It cut a TV ad doubling down on the claim, cleverly worded so as to suggest that the Obama administration sold out America (and Ohio) by selling Chrysler to the Italians who are moving production to China.

Jon Cohn of TNR has a good write-up here that goes into more detail on domestic auto industry employment, which was cratering before the bailout and has picked up briskly since. The "say anything" credo of the Romney campaign continues and mushrooms. I think this one might backfire though. Are the workers and voters of Toledo amused being knowingly misrepresented and used like this? I'd like to see an Obama ad featuring some of the workers at this very plant.

Right wing? Maybe. Conservative yes. Lets see;
- It makes no difference to me what consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedroom
- If two of the same sex want to get married, more power to them, makes no difference to me
- While I am pro life I can understand abortion/murder in the cases of rape, incest or if the mother's life is in danger
- I am a firm believer that we should not have troops stationed all over the world interfering, I would much prefer the troops were on our southern border controlling illegal immigration
- I detest folks who think they should pay a lower Federal Income tax rate than others, those who invested, busted their butts and built something
- I am a firm believer if monies are not available the government should not print more or borrow more to keep their base happy
- I am sick over the fact we have a president nobama who has run up the largest deficit ever, has governed to ensure record numbers of Americans need food stamps to eat and has watched over the near 10% reduction in Americans incomes
I realize you do not understand the difference. I have to note you did not question anything that was noted about the president.

"Mitt Romney's new ad is a sure sign that he knows he's in trouble in Ohio. When the American auto industry and a million workers' jobs were on the line, Mitt Romney turned his back. Now he's pretending it never happened and is trying to scare Ohioans by repeating a blatant falsehood that Chrysler is moving its Jeep operations to China," said Obama campaign spokesman Frank Benenati.

"Even the Detroit News, which this ad cites, condemned his plan that would have let Chrysler and GM go under and praised the President for his 'extraordinary' rescue of the industry. Mitt Romney might be willing to do anything to close the deal, but Ohioans know where he stood when it mattered most, and they won't be fooled by his dishonest ads in the final days of this campaign," Benenati said.

Exactly. I don't care what anyone does in their bedroom. I don't what to have to pay for anything they need to do it, either. And, I damn sure don't want to pay for the problems their irresponsibility causes. They should be responsible for:
Whatever it takes for them to engage in hedonism;
and whatever is the result of their hedonism.

Their choice of lifestyle shouldn't cost me one dime.

Ironic, isn't it?
Most are paid to be here. It's part of that massive White House effort to counter the massive amount of criticism of Obama on the internet.

For you and me, we are actually interested in the truth. Nobody knows it all. I learn a lot in these posts. It gives me clues to look in to and dig around.

And, sometimes, it's just fun to slaughter some idiot knowingly spewing some ignorant indoctrinated party line propaganda lie.

Even that isn't working out for the Democrats. The bigger the storm is, the more "presidential" Obama gets to be. You can bet the Democrats are hoping for a storm from hell and destruction everywhere.
