Skip to comments.Romney Camp: Let's Face It, Obama's a Shameless Liar
Posted on 07/10/2012 10:15:51 AM PDT by Kaslin
The Obama campaign's dishonest attack ads portraying Mitt Romney as a "corporate raider" and a "pioneer" of shipping American jobs overseas have been debunked by multiple independent fact checkers. WaPo called the first such spot "misleading, unfair and untrue," and FactCheck.org found "no evidence" to support Obama's allegations. Undeterred by facts and unconstrained by truth, Chicago has produced a second ad on the very same subject, repeating the very same discredited claims. An NBC News affiliate in Florida examined the new spot and reached the same conclusion as the other truth-seeking entities: The ad is false
Truth-Test: Obama's Bain Attacks Ruled FALSE
How do you respond when your opponent demonstrates no compunction about lying to the public repeatedly, even after being presented with compelling evidence by impartial third parties? You call him a liar, amplify the truth, and punch back. That's what Republicans are doing today. BuzzFeed reports that the Romney campaign, livid over Obama's serial prevarications, is planning to let loose its surrogates to employ the L-word against the president in a series of media interviews:
The Romney campaign will begin to aggressively push back against President Obama's accusations that the Republican was an "outsourcing pioneer" today, a source privy to the the campaign's strategy told BuzzFeed. In a conference call Monday morning, senior staff said Romney's surrogates would stop shying away from the word "lie" in responding to Democrats' attacks on his business record, and plan to go on TV to call Obama a "liar," the source said. "They are very fed up with these attacks," said the source.
On the truth amplification front, expect to see more ads like the "shame on you!" spot we highlighted last week (which, incidentally, also accused Obama of "lies"). I'd also like to see more forceful and high-profile clarifications of Romney's actual record, correcting mischaracterizations of both his Massachusetts governorship and his "superb" (Steve Rattner) and "sterling" (Bill Clinton) stewardship of Bain Capital. But ultimately, the old political adage applies: If you're explaining, you're losing -- which is why the counter-assault is critical. Today the RNC is rolling out ObamanomicsOutsourced.com, a website that tracks the billions in taxpayer money that Obama's failed stimulus has channeled to foreign companies and interests, both directly and indirectly. A brief appetite whetter:

The One has been ravenously ripping Romney for his supposed outsourcing based on no evidence, so it will be interesting to see how he responds when his own venture socialism is put under the off-shoring microscope. Also, have we heard any explanation yet for why his campaign outsourced some of its own call-center work? Supporters of free markets have nothing against "outsourcing," per se, but Obama has stacked this deck against himself. One ought not hurl baseless accusations against one's opponent when one's own record on the issue at hand is ripe for attack; in Obama's case, he used (borrowed) taxpayer money to subsidize overseas projects as part of a massive, failed boondoggle that was ostensibly designed to create American jobs. A new USA Today poll shows Obama holding a statistically-insignificant lead in 12 battleground states, and on-air spending has undoubtedly played a significant role in shaping those numbers. Our post-partisan healer has been pummeling his opponent for weeks:
President Obama has spent more than $91 million on television ads in eight swing states as of July 6, a massive sum that dwarfs the $23 million former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has disbursed on campaign commercials in those same places. Only heavy spending by Republican super PACs is keeping Romney within financial shouting distance of the incumbent on television at this point. The data, which was provided to the Fix by a Republican media buyer, paints a fascinating picture of Obama’s overwhelming ad advantage in each of the states — Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Virginia — where both campaigns are spending. The spending disparity between the campaigns is particularly pronounced in three of the swingiest states: Florida, Ohio and Virginia.
In light of Romney's enormous June fundraising haul -- he and the RNC out-raised Obama/DNC by $35 million -- the playing field is going to start to level out rather quickly. When that happens, prepare for increased liberal caterwauling about money in politics and "buying elections." Hell, Obama's already uncorking whoppers about getting outspent in 2008:
Obama Bizarrely Claims He Was Outspent In 2008
Um, yeah. Not even close, champ. You broke your public funding pledge, raised an Everest of cash, then beat John McCain to a pulp in total spending. Here are the totals, in case you'd "forgotten:"
Bloomberg adds that The One blitzed McCain by a 4-to-1 spending margin over the '08 campaign's final stretch -- yet he's telling audiences on the stump that things were the other way around without batting an eye. I think there's a word for this sort of person.
“... plan to go on TV to call Obama a “liar,”...”
I just had an orgasm...

About damn time. Some of this and I might actually warm (somewhat) to Mittens.
Maybe you're hanging out with the wrong crowd, LOL. You'd be paralyzed with joy if you heard how often we call him a liar around here.
So who's trying top "buy" the White House?
When do the jokes start about Obamas lying?...
In NYC it must have already started...
They will ask Romney if he disavows these barbaric comments, they will ask the campaign how they can have the nerve to call a sitting president names, and they will take polls askign if this disgusting new low in discourse will jeopardize Romney's campaign...
But not one whorenalist will ask if Obama is actually a liar...
Zero is a liar.
And the news here is...?
That Christie guy in New Jersey is probably a bit over-the-top but Romney needs to be a little more like him. Americans love a fighter.
Looks to me like you had multiple orgasms.
It’s about time!
Islam Permits Lying to Deceive Unbelievers and Bring World Domination!
By Don Boys, Ph.D. Published Nov 17, 2004
It is impossible to understand Islam and Muslims by listening to their protestations against terror and their proclamations of patriotism for America. Usually, it is wise and fair to give people the benefit of the doubt but when it comes to national safety and the future of America, we had better look twice, even thrice at Muslim patriotism. Why? Because Islam permits lying! It is called Al-taqiyya. One Muslim said that Al-taqiyya means dissimulation then he expanded it to diplomacy but he should have gone further to deception. Now some Muslims who do not follow the Koran are as faithful Americans as any of us, but the problem is, we cannot know....
Muslims lie when it is in their interest to do so and Allah will not hold them accountable for lying when it is beneficial to the cause of Islam. They can lie without any guilt or fear of accountability or retribution. A lie in the defense of Islam is approved even applauded in their holy books.
Muslims are permitted to lie: (1) to save their lives, (2) to reconcile a husband and wife, (3) to persuade a woman into a bedroom and (4) to facilitate one on his journey. Muslims are even permitted to disavow Islam and Mohammed if it is not a genuine heart-felt rejection. Muslims will tell you that concealment of a truth is not an abandonment of that truth if it benefits Islam.
Mohammed gave permission for a follower to lie in order to kill a Jewish poet who had offended Mohammed....
Muslims may appear very sincere; in fact, they are sincere, when they lie for their own protection or in the cause of Islam. They have permission to lie. Yes, Christians have also lied but never are they given permission to lie. However, a Muslim has no guilt since the Koran and Hadith permit his deception....
You can trust the Muslims to be Muslims. They are lying their way to world domination!
Qur’an (16:106)- Establishes that there are circumstances that can compel a Muslim to tell a lie.
Qur’an (3:28) - This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to guard themselves.
Qur’an (9:3)- Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters The dissolution of oaths with the pagans who remained at Mecca following its capture. They did nothing wrong, but were evicted anyway.
Qur’an (2:225)- Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts
Qur’an (66:2)- Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths
Qur’an (3:54)- And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers. The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means deceit. If Allah is deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same. (See also
8:30 and 10:21)
Taken collectively these verses are interpreted to mean that there are circumstances when a Muslim may be compelled to deceive others for a greater purpose.
Willard would know about shameless liars.
My sentiments exactly!
When the press tries to turn this counterattack by the GOP into an outrageous assault on their beloved President, the GOP must be willing to stand their ground.
Republicans risk sounding like whiners if they talk too much about media bias (even though it’s true), but they must be willing to go there at times, like Newt did in the primary. Polls show that a majority accept the truth of a liberally biased mainstream media, so the GOP should be willing to call them out on their bias.
