I need only to read your post, Shug, to have a case study for a pathological liar.

Find that quote yet, hon?

To date, your definition of "lie" seems to go along the lines of people making wrong statements based on ignorance rather than statements made with the intention of deceiving people.
HOney, I am not saying that you aren't above everything else ignorant, that is painfully obvious to all.

Still waiting for you to post that quote- you know, when you insisted I said something I did not say.

And when what you CHANGED what I did say to try to suit better your paraphrase- when you changed where I said "members of Parliament" to *M*embers of Parliament" so you could insist I was refering to MPs... i.e., you would say "MPs of the House of Parliament"

Even though I have a history (of over a year) be specific: Lords, and Lords Spiritual.

I don't need to refer to the internet definitions of "lie" or wrangle with "is-is". I've know what I lie was since I was around four years old.

You are a liar.

Still no quote.

I don't need to explain what I meant when you provide a quote.

Yet still no quote.

Funny how that is.

MSNBC Host Shocked to Hear Romney Surrogate Call Obama ‘Lazy’ and ‘Detached’, Asks Him if He Wants to ‘Take It Back’
Posted on October 4, 2012 at 4:19pm by Jason Howerton

(source: MSNBC)

Former New Hampshire Gov. and Mitt Romney surrogate John Sununu left MSNBC‘s Andrea Mitchell shocked on Thursday after he told the host that President Barack Obama’s debate performance on Wednesday revealed how “lazy and detached” he is as president.

“What people saw last night, I think, was a president who revealed his incompetence — how lazy and detached he is and how he has absolutely no idea how serious the economy problems of the country are and how he has failed to even begin address them,” Sununu said.

He went on:“And I think even the liberal press reacted with shock at this revelation and I find it fascinating now this morning after they’ve slept, watching them all scrambling around to clean up the mess the president left on the floor last night. Sununu said Romney on the other hand brought “specifics” to the debate not “bumper sticker numbers” like Obama.

Mitchell was visibly taken aback by his comments and quickly offered Sununu the chance to take his remarks “back.”

“Governor, I want to give you a chance to maybe take it back. Did you really mean to call Barack Obama, the President of the United States, lazy?” she asked.

“Yes,” Sununu replied bluntly, adding “He said ‘they are making me do this work.’ He didn’t want to prepare for this debate. He is lazy and disengaged.”

Mitchell admitted that “a lot of people are questioning” whether Obama did well in the debate, but said “I think to call the president lazy and disengaged is another whole question.”

“Alright, Andrea. Whatever,” Sununu said, chuckling to himself.

Not a single minute.

No one in America changed their minds, and even though you have changed your mind eight times since last year, you are still latched on to a loser.

Romney has been in some thirty debates since last year... and he is still in second place with no hopes of getting any closer.

He isn't going to be able to hide from his draft record, he isn't going to hide from his stand on women's rights, and he isn't going to ever be LIKED by 40 percent of America.

"No one in America changed their minds"???

Wrong again, Borefoot.

Obama-Romney Debate: Poll Shows Mitt Romney Gaining Ground After Strong Performance -Huffington Post

"Romney moved ahead of the president on several core issues after Wednesday's debate, which was widely seen as a victory for the Republican candidate.

Voters now see Romney as a better bet to boost the economy, spur job creation and manage the budget deficit, the poll found. He narrowed Obama's advantage on taxes, the Social Security retirement program and the Medicare health insurance program for the elderly and disabled."

"Romney's strong performance could make the race more competitive", Ipsos pollster Cliff Young said.

You never get anything right, do you, Draft Dodger?

That's right - you are a draft dodger. And a moron.

What an original thought!

Let's see,...trying to think if I have heard that line from anyone before you just thought of it independently....

Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Ed "Sargent" Shultz, David Axelrod, Robert Gibbs, Donna Brazier, David Pluff, Bill Mahr,...

You and Dictator Hugo Chavez have both endorsed Obama. Chavez held his nose, knowing Obama is too far to the left for him,...

Bwhahahahahahahahahahaah....

You are a liar and a fool. Nobody takes you seriously, nor should they.

If you talked publicly like you do anonymously on Topix, somebody would cold-cock you upside your stupid head. If you were here, it would be me.

You are too much of a coward for that.

Nah, Cletcher.

You're not on any list. Just don't get into it as much.

We're still pals.

This guy Borefoot is doing what they call in KY "letting his mouth overload his ass".
