TIME: Obama Campaign Says Mitt Romney Is Either A Crook Or A Liar
TIME ^ | 7-13-12 | Michael Scherer (Confirmed Obama Journo-Lister)

Posted on 07/13/2012 7:49:39 AM PDT by tcrlaf

Mitt Romney wants you to know that both of these things are true: 1. He remained the “controlling person” in a number of Bain Capital investments between 1999 and 2002, when he left to work on the Salt Lake City Olympics. 2. He had no actual personal control over those investments during that time.

This is not a particularly comfortable position for a presidential candidate to be in, though it is also not exactly an unusual one for Romney, who has, among other things, taken credit for both Obama’s bailout of Detroit and for opposing Obama’s bailout of Detroit.

---SNIP---

In a conference call Thursday morning, Obama campaign senior adviser Stephanie Cutter put it this way:

Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony. Or he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments.

Complete half-truth filled hit job from TIME and confirmed Obama Journo-Lister Scherer, disguised as "news".

Welcome to your weekend talk show meme, folks.

Is it just me, or does it seem like the Tax-Dodging Future Felons of the Obama Campaign are in a complete panic, now?

This is the type of thing you save for late October, not early July.

“TIME: Obama Campaign Says Mitt Romney Is Either A Crook Or A Liar”

Well, now, let’s be fair. The Obama Campaign is loaded with experts on both of those subjects with years of detailed experience.

Agree. They all know this is a trumped up non-issue and that Romney did nothing wrong, but facts are not appearances and that is what the Obama slime machine is counting on.

They are engaged in a "Big Lie" campaign. They can't defend Obama, so they are going to demonize Romney with lies and half-truths, just exactly as Alinsky instructed them to do.

Romney needs to come out swinging and his surrogates need to use derision to respond to these attacks .

Keep it up, Obama! I was having a real hard time trying to convince myself that I could vote for Romney. The more Obama lies and plays nasty, the madder I get and now, even though i will still have to hold my nose, I WILL vote for Romney! Hopefully, the politics of destruction will drive a lot of other people to vote against Obama, too!

“facts are not appearances and that is what the Obama slime machine is counting on”

It’s not the truth that matters, but the seriousness of the charges!!

If it is the Sunday talk show adgenda for this weekend then I hope that our side all hits the questions about all the Obama sealed records and that If Obama wants transparancy then he needs to put up too.

Sadly, that would require “our” side to go on the offensive and throw some punches.....not something they have been very good at thus far.

Will the Republican establishment EVER get tired of trying to win the approval of the Beltway Bubble crowd? It’s like watching Charlie Brown and Lucy with the football.

Maybe these kinds of attacks will wake Romney up to the fact that he can’t, like McCain tried, just be the nice guy and win. Romney is going to have to take to kid gloves off and go after Obama, his policies, his legislation, his regulations.

Not the point. Truth has zero to do with it.

There is a story in politics, commonly attributed to Lyndon B. Johnson, about how LBJ wanted to circulate a rumor attacking his opponent in a Texas election. Johnson, it's said, wanted to spread the story that his opponent liked to have sex with barnyard animals. One of LBJ's aides said, "We can't prove he's a pig f----r." "I know that," replied Johnson. "I just want to hear him deny it."

This morning on Chicago WLS AM radio one of Obama’s voters states she doesn’t care if Obama murders someone she will vote for him no matter what.
