Hello again! Been out of the loop for a few days! Back to callin' Willard on his non-stop damned lies. Let's see, what do we have:
1. This week, Willard stopped at a factory in Ohio that was closed in 2008--when BUSH WAS PRESIDENT--and blamed the plant's closure on President Obama! (A CNN reporter tweeted it here.) And wouldn't ya know it, the guy who closed the plant originally is a big Romney donor.
In fact, [Owner Thomas]Nelson is a major Republican donor, having given at least $96,600 to Republican federal candidates and committees since 2007, according to our analysis of data downloaded from the Sunlight Foundation. Aside from Romney and a dozen or so donations to candidates, Nelson made a $30,800 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee last October and $25,000 to the Republican National Committee in 2007.
So one of Romney's contributors closes a plant when Bush was in office and Mittens blames it on Obama. Expect this kind of BS on a daily basis this year.
2. No one can choose his birth family, and no one blames Willard for anything his ancestors did. But Willard will lie about it anyway. When the Governor of Montana stated that Willard's grandfather was a polygamist, Mittens denied it emphatically. The facts speak otherwise:
Romney's father, the late Michigan governor George Romney, was born in Chihuahua, Mexico, in 1907 to American citizens living in a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints colony. The Romney family had left the U.S. to avoid being prosecuted for polygamy after laws against the practice were enforced, and returned to the U.S. after the Mexican Revolution broke out. Some family members stayed in Mexico and Mitt Romney has about 40 relatives still living south of the border.
D'oh! Again, no one is saying Willard is pro-polygamy. But this is just another example of how Willard will lie almost as a reflex action. Ask him anything, and he'll lie through his teeth about it.
3. Finally, Willard claims he was in Fenway Park to see the Boston Red Sox win the clinching game of the 2004 World Series. But alas:
Mitt Romney’s visit to Fenway Park earlier this week has prompted renewed focus on a 2006 comment in which he reportedly told an Air Force pilot he was in Fenway Park when the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series in 86 years.
If he was, it was by himself.
The team won the clinching Game 4 of the 2004 World Series not in Boston but at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, home of the St. Louis Cardinals.
He'll lie about Obama, he'll lie about his own family, he'll lie about his experiences. Look, I know all politicians bend the truth on occasion, but Willard just ignores the truth altogether. You literally cannot trust ANYTHING he says.
And he MUST be stopped from lying his way into the White House.
