Romney and Ryan – Whopper Kings

Mitt Romney / Paul Ryan - Whopper Kings   :

Via Greg Sargent:

Last week, Mitt Romney told an Ohio rally that Chrysler was considering moving all its Jeep production to China — a false claim based on a faulty interpretation of a Bloomberg article that said no such thing. It was easy to assume the Romney camp had simply made a mistake (which would not necessarily have justified running with such an incendiary claim without checking the facts first).

Now, however, there is no longer any doubt about what’s happening: The Romney campaign is deliberately misleading people with the Jeep-to-China claim, in a last-ditch effort to turn things around in Ohio, which benefitted enormously from the auto bailout Romney opposed. The Romney campaign is running a new ad that claims:

Obama took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy, and sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build jeeps in China. Mitt Romney will fight for every American job.

They have absolutely no shame. In a profession that has made lying an art form, Mitt Romney and his Republican cohorts are the indisputable king of whoppers and sleaze. I can think of no politician who more deserves an electoral kick in the ass than Mitt Romney.



Kevin Drum‘s take on the Romney ad.

Romney’s ad rates about 9 out of 10 on the deceptiveness scale. He’s obviously trying to imply that American jobs will be shipped overseas; stating things accurately would require wholesale revisions; and doing so would completely destroy Romney’s point. But he doesn’t care. He’s got an election to win, and if scaring Ohio autoworkers is what it takes, then that’s what it takes. It’s truly nauseating.

“Nauseating” is an understatement.

  1. Republicans have gone from nonsense to absurdity. There is no shame to the Presidency

    If americans vote Romney in,I would be very disappointed

  2. redState girl – But MOM!!! They did it too!!!

    Yea, when you run clean out of argument for yer guy, it gets truly pathetic.

    Name an example, and it has to be from the Obama campaign itself.

  3. Redstate girl……you and your republican friends are really on my last nerve. You like Romney? Great! Vote for him.
    But you really don’t like Romney do you? You hate hate hate Obama. Why? Because you are a gullible easily lead person (fool, racist,?).
    There is nothing that Romney or his republican friends can do or say that you won’t excuse. Nothing.
    And for those of us with ears to hear and eyes to see, we find that unbelievable. Absolutly unbelievable. And then someone like you shows up and posts something completely idiotic and we realize that we can not even scrape the surface of the ignorance that is sprinkled through this country. And we better believe it.
    Do you imagaine the thrill of kicking the BLACK man out of the whitehouse? Is that what’s drives you? Oh, the shame, the embarrassment that Obama will feel. Bullshit. Obama will be fine. Just fine. He has a beautiful wife who loves him and he loves. He has two beautiful daughters who will give his much enjoyment as he watches them grown to womanhood. Oh, and he will be rich. RICH. The only people who will be crushed are the people who are in the 99%. What is the biggest travesty is that you and your kind will deserve what a republican government is going to give you. The rest of us don’t,

  4. Sydney,

    Unfortunately, the imbeciles will drag the rest of the country down also. George Bush was not enough. The country is still standing. We must kick Obama aside because he has been resurrecting the the nation from the mess that was made by the Repugs – so they can finish the job. Redstategirl, and her like, will be in far worse shape afterwards – but, hey, at least the President is white. That is all that matters to them.

    You know when a Democrat lied? Clinton, when he said he did not have sex with that woman. However, that never did concern us as a country – and I never understood why we had to know about that. Funny thing, though, we sure were in great shape under Clinton. I can forgive many a BJ if we were there again.

  5. Romney distorts and twists every word that comes out of his mouth. He puts a spin on his so-called “facts” that plays to his advantage, and downgrades the record of our President. I would hate to see how he would govern when he has such a total lack of integrity and character. The country would take a serious hit with him in office, at a time when we need a steady hand and good judgment more than ever! You can rely on President Obama — he says what he means and means what he says. I have a feeling of security and trust with him in office — that’s why I voted early for four more years of his guidance toward this country’s recovery. We can’t afford to turn back now to the failed policies of the Republican years!

    such as : reneging climate change ( hurricane Sandy ),tax breaks for the rich,ignorant racists,innocent rapist are more traits that fit the mold of Republicans. How you can be proud to get screwed in the future is beyond my comprehension

    We’ll stay with a trusting Black American to an habitual dishonest and mock smiling morman white man.

  7. Remember this headline in London, after W was re-elected?

    “How can 59,054,087 people be so DUMB?
    War More Years!”

    A lot of other countries, Britian included, cannot believe we have a race so close between these two men. One, who gave America credibility again after the Bush years – and the other, who will lie on a dime and without shame. What is seriously wrong with half of our population? Is bigotry that important to maintain in their lives?

  8. Yesterday, I heard a conservative say that Mitt Romney was a well-educated, brilliant candidate and was once his father’s closest advisor and right-hand man.
    My first thought was that he was also the genius who wondered why airplane windows don’t open.
    My second thought was of my mother once telling me, “Bigotry and ignorance walk hand in hand. There’s only one cure for ignorance.” (One of several reasons I became a teacher).
    This morning some pollster mentioned that the majority of college-educated voters in Virginia planned to vote for Obama.
    There’s something to be said for a nation’s responsibility to educate its young. Without charge.

  9. R.L……….why do you think that the republican party is out to destroy public education and raise the cost of higher Education out of reach for the majority of most Americans? In order to grasp and hold on to power they need a massive amount of stupid.
