    At Last Night's Debate: Romney Told 31 Myths In 41 Minutes | ThinkProgress


    During the first presidential debate in Denver, Colorado Romney managed to tell 27 myths in his 38 minutes of speaking time. But at his second encounter with Obama in New York, the GOP presidential candidate — who has run a post-truth campaign from day one — outdid himself and crammed 31 myths in 41 minutes:

    1) “I want to make sure we keep our Pell grant program growing. We’re also going to have our loan program, so that people are able to afford school.” Paul Ryan’s budget could cut Pell Grants for nearly 1 million college students and even Romney’s white paper on education, “A Chance for Every Child,” suggests that he “would reverse the growth in Pell Grant funding.” It says: “A Romney Administration will refocus Pell Grant dollars on the students that need them most and place the program on a responsible long-term path that avoids future funding cliffs and last-minute funding patches.”

    2) “I put out a five-point plan that gets America 12 million new jobs in four years and rising take-home pay.” The Washington Post’s in-house fact checker tore Romney’s claim that he will create 12 million jobs to shreds. The Post wrote that the “‘new math’” in Romney’s plan “doesn’t add up.” In awarding the claim four Pinocchios — the most untrue possible rating, the Post expressed incredulity at the fact Romney would personally stand behind such a flawed, baseless claim.

    3) “And the president’s right in terms of the additional oil production, but none of it came on federal land. As a matter of fact, oil production is down 14 percent this year on federal land, and gas production was down 9 percent.” 14 percent is a one-year number. “Overall, oil production on federal land under Obama is up from 566 million barrels in 2008 to 626 million barrels in 2011, a 10.6 percent increase.” Compared to the last three years of President Bush, there have been 241 million more barrels of oil produced from public lands in the first three years of Obama.



    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Candy, what Governor Romney said just isn’t true.

    Obama's record is total shit!

    Read all about it...Obama spins and lies!!!!


    Time line of lies!

    Obama's Benghazi Lies - Home

    Destroys Obama's case. It wasn't about a fucking terrorist attack, BUT the protest over our freedom of speech.

    On the 13th he was talking about the protest when he said terrorized.

    Susan Rice said on the 16th that this wasn't a pre-planned attack. LIES

    On the 18th Obama went on the letterman show and blamed our first amendment for the attack. LIES!!!

    If the terrorized was supposed to mean a terrorist attack. Well, Obama sure inserted his foot in his ass.

    Clinton on the 21st was the first to say it was a Terrorist attack. SPIN!

    Obama on the view on the 25th said it was about the fucking video! Spin some more!!!

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPzjayOh-PU&feature=relmfu]Who is responsible for the attack in Benghazi? - YouTube[/ame]



    O'shit did Obama fuck up on security?

    Biden blatantly lied about Chris Stevens wanting more Security
    The Fact Checker


    “We weren’t told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security.”

    — Biden, speaking of the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya

    Biden’s bold statement was directly contradicted by State Department officials just this week, in testimony before a congressional panel and in unclassified cables released by a congressional committee.

    “All of us at post were in sync that we wanted these resources,” said Eric Nordstrom, the top regional security officer in Libya earlier this year. A Utah national guardsman who led a security team, Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, said: “We felt great frustration that those requests were ignored or just never met.”

    Debate Fact Check Shows Romney Lied 31 Times In 41 Minutes
    October 17, 2012

    Here’s a few of my favorites, courtesy of TP:
    “And the president’s right in terms of the additional oil production, but none of it came on federal land. As a matter of fact, oil production is down 14 percent this year on federal land, and gas production was down 9 percent.”

    14 percent is a one-year number. “Overall, oil production on federal land under Obama is up from 566 million barrels in 2008 to 626 million barrels in 2011, a 10.6 percent increase.” Compared to the last three years of President Bush, there have been 241 million more barrels of oil produced from public lands in the first three years of Obama.

    The op link was just a re-posting of something from the highly liberal Think Progress website how about using a real source for fact checking next time.

    31 lies in 41 minutes ...

    It wasn't Willard's best but a pretty good showing for the professional liar that he is.

    And not at all surprising.
