When lies are more important to the tea baggers than honesty....

Mitt Romney can lie all he wants in the debates.

At Last Night’s Debate: Romney Told 27 LIES In 38 Minutes

1)“[G]et us energy independent, North American energy independent. That creates about 4 million jobs”.

2)“I don’t have a $5 trillion tax cut. I don’t have a tax cut of a scale that you’re talking about.”

3)“My view is that we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class. But I’m not going to reduce the share of taxes paid by high-income people.”

4)“My — my number-one principal is, there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. I want to underline that: no tax cut that adds to the deficit.”

5)“I will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle-income families. I will lower taxes on middle-income families. Now, you cite a study. There are six other studies that looked at the study you describe and say it’s completely wrong.”

6)“I saw a study that came out today that said you’re going to raise taxes by $3,000 to $4,000 on middle-income families.”

7)“And the reason is because small business pays that individual rate; 54 percent of America’s workers work in businesses that are taxed not at the corporate tax rate, but at the individual tax rate….97 percent of the businesses are not — not taxed at the 35 percent tax rate, they’re taxed at a lower rate. But those businesses that are in the last 3 percent of businesses happen to employ half — half of all the people who work in small business.”

8)“Mr. President, all of the increase in natural gas and oil has happened on private land, not on government land. On government land, your administration has cut the number of permits and licenses in half.”

9)“The president’s put it in place as much public debt — almost as much debt held by the public as all prior presidents combined.”

10)“That’s why the National Federation of Independent Businesses said your plan will kill 700,000 jobs. I don’t want to kill jobs in this environment.”

11)“What we do have right now is a setting where I’d like to bring money from overseas back to this country.”

12)“I would like to take the Medicaid dollars that go to states and say to a state, you’re going to get what you got last year, plus inflation, plus 1 percent, and then you’re going to manage your care for your poor in the way you think best.”

13)“I want to take that $716 billion you’ve cut and put it back into Medicare…. But the idea of cutting $716 billion from Medicare to be able to balance the additional cost of Obamacare is, in my opinion, a mistake.

14)“What I support is no change for current retirees and near-retirees to Medicare.”

15)“Number two is for people coming along that are young, what I do to make sure that we can keep Medicare in place for them is to allow them either to choose the current Medicare program or a private plan. Their choice. They get to choose — and they’ll have at least two plans that will be entirely at no cost to them.”

16)“And, by the way the idea came not even from Paul Ryan or — or Senator Wyden, who’s the co-author of the bill with — with Paul Ryan in the Senate, but also it came from Bill — Bill Clinton’s chief of staff.”

17)“Well, I would repeal and replace it. We’re not going to get rid of all regulation. You have to have regulation. And there are some parts of Dodd-Frank that make all the sense in the world.”

18)“But I wouldn’t designate five banks as too big to fail and give them a blank check. That’s one of the unintended consequences of Dodd-Frank… We need to get rid of that provision because it’s killing regional and small banks. They’re getting hurt.”

Your childish outburst and allegations do not change the fact that Romney was lying during the debates. I have to question your own integrity since you're defending a man who lies to America.
Obama has NEVER told the truth....except when he said he would fundamentally change America. He has worked his butt off to do that.

Here's a big one. He lied when he said that "I" being part of the middle income group received a tax break for a couple of thousand bucks. Income has been the same for the last three years and taxes have increased every year since Obama has been president. I don't itemize, I just take the standard deductions and whamo, taxes are higher every year. Not by much but definitely not a decrease in taxes as Obama claims.

Sheesh. You can't even get your lies straight.

"Americans paid the lowest tax rates in 30 years to the federal government in 2009, due in part to tax cuts sought by President Obama to combat the Great Recession, congressional budget analysts said Tuesday."

But you aren't interested in the truth. Just spreading lies based on your own sorry, angry, pathetic existence.
