Effortless lying just comes easier to some of us, it seems. Here's now-infamous Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter on CNN, earlier this week
Stephanie Cutter on Piers Morgan
MORGAN: "You have already indicated again that you don't really believe it will be a $5 trillion tax cut."
CUTTER: No. What I have indicated was he has a $5 trillion tax cut.
Sigh. Let's go to the video tape. Same woman, same network, last week:
Obama Campaign Concedes Their 5 Trillion Attack Is Not True
BURNETT: But when he closes deductions he wont be anywhere near $5 trillion. Thats our analysis.
CUTTER: Well with, okay, stipulated, it wont be near $5 trillion, but its also not going to be the sum of $5 trillion in the loopholes that hes going to close.
This was such a seminal moment that the Romney camp highlighted it in a campaign ad -- which also quoted MSM fact-checks of the dishonest stat:
The Wall Street Journal has even more today:
Mr. Romney has been saying this for months, and over the weekend Obama campaign spokesman Jen Psaki conceded 80% of the argument. En route to California with reporters aboard Air Force One, Ms. Psaki said that the elimination of enough deductions and loopholes could in fact cover $3.8 trillion. That becomes $4 trillion if you include fewer interest payments on less debt, which means the Obama campaign was saying as of Sunday that the Romney "tax cut" was $1 trillion, not $5 trillion. But soon after Air Force One landed, it became clear that either Mr. Obama hadn't gotten the memo—or didn't like what it said. At a Los Angeles fundraiser, Mr. Obama repeated the bogus claim that his own campaign had just repudiated.
But remember, gang, the Obama campaign takes fact-checking "very, very seriously," according to...Stephanie Cutter.
The first liar don’t stand a chance in this administration.
This Cutter gal is a serial liar. I don’t understrand why they keep shoving her out therew. She has zero credibility.
She is nothing but a hack
A hack who is very difficult to watch. She is not a smooth liar, she’s shifty and jerky and nervous. And SO unattractive.
She’s a LYING SL*T, just like most Democrats.
Lying pos apparatchik like other ObomaBots. They are in a panic to preserve their jobs. If Obama loses they are not fit for other employment. Gov’t and the Democrat party are where these parasites make money to live on. Not to mention NGOs, charities and publicly funded universities
