Chrysler Shipping Jobs To China? Nope, It’s Just Another Romney Lie
All politicians and all political campaigns stretch the truth at times, but Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign has been callously dishonest. The latest in a string of flat-out lies comes with Romney’s attempt to sour Obama’s rescue of the auto industry. Instead of telling voters how he would improve the auto industry, Romney instead says that Chrysler plans to ship jobs to China. He said this more than once on the campaign trail and now there is a Romney campaign ad running in Ohio with the same false claim:

Romney Fundraiser Secret Video: People Believe They Are Entitled To “Food”
If I had to pick one single word in the “Romney fundraiser secret video” that I believe is the biggest disqualifier for Mitt Romney to become president, it would be this — He included “food” in his list of government entitlements. Here’s the quote:

The Smirk: Mitt Romney Press Conference On Libyan Consulate Deaths
Forget all the lies and distortions for one moment. Forget about Mitt Romney’s “shoot before he aims” statement — to use a quote from President Obama. Forget about the fact that Mitt Romney doubled down on his factually challenged critique of the Obama administration during a press conference yesterday. Just focus on the two images below for a moment. — When you consider what this press conference was about (Romney’s response to the deaths at the U.S. consulate in Libya), does this look presidential to you?

Romney Campaign Plays Politics With Consulate Deaths In Libya
U.S. ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stephens, along with three staff members were killed during an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The attack was part of violent protests at both the U.S. embassy Egypt and U.S. consulate in Libya. The protests were sparked by a film critical of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

War in Afghanistan not “important” enough for Romney convention speech
Just as Mitt Romney managed to get his head out of his ass (or maybe reports of this are premature?), he proceeded to ram his foot in his mouth. Friday on Fox News, Bret Baier asked Romney about neglecting to mention the troops or the war in Afghanistan during his Republican National Convention speech. Romney replied, “I’m going to regret you repeating it day in and day out. — nervous Romney laughter — No. When you, when you give a speech, you don’t go through a laundry list, you talk about the things you think are important.” — Whoops.

VIDEO: Romney: ‘No One’s Ever Asked To See My Birth Certificate’
What is Mitt Romney looking to accomplish with his birth certificate joke? Today Mitt Romney said, “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.” He said this during a campaign stop in Michigan. Why does Romney feel the need to play to the racist and ‘head up the ass’ fringe of the Republican base when he should be trying to win over the few remaining undecided voters? Surely these undecided voters are in the moderate camp and not likely to subscribe to the absurd birther movement.

Romney lies again, says Obama is undermining voting rights of our military
The Obama campaign is suing Ohio to restore early voting for ALL Ohio voters, something Republican lawmakers in the state restricted to military service members only. In the 2008 election all Ohio voters had access to early voting. Mitt Romney, no stranger to lying, issued this statement on his Facebook page:

VIDEO: London Mayor Boris Johnson takes a jab at Mitt Romney
No, there was no physical altercation. Not yet anyway. London Mayor Boris Johnson (Conservative Party) took to the stage in Hyde Park to exclaim that London is ready for the 2012 Olympics. Oh, and he throws a few jabs at “a guy called Mitt Romney” as well. In case you didn’t hear, Mittens decided it was a good idea to critique London’s Olympic readiness on his trip abroad.
