Romney's full name is Willard Mitt Romney. However, on 22 November 2011, during a Republican debate, Romney uttered the following lie:
“I’m Mitt Romney, and yes, Wolf, that’s also my first name.”
A link to an article containing the video clip of Romney the Liar lying about his own first name is located here. An article from The New York Daily News that refers to Romney's "fib" as they call it is here.
You see, "Mitt" makes him sound more like a regular guy--which he isn't, by any stretch. He has never legally changed his name. His first name is NOT Mitt. It is Willard.
As I said, a small lie.
But there are MUCH bigger things to come.
In a sense, he joins other right-wing jerks who lie about their names. Except where Mittens lies about his first name, the others lie about their last names, e.g., Michael "Savage" Weiner and Jon "Justice" LoGiudice.ReplyDelete
The NYDN article you cite explicitly contradicts part of your argument: “Going with a different name is something a lot of people do, and in Romney’s case he did it a long time ago,” said Robert Thompson, media professor at Syracuse University. “It’s not like he made the decision while running for President because he realized that ‘Mitt’ will poll better than ‘Willard.’ ”ReplyDelete
I'm on your side, and I assume you don't want to fight dishonesty with dishonesty.
First of all, nothing Romney does is without calculation. But I will edit the item to say that he did it to seem more like a "regular guy"--which he isn't. Second, his first name is WILLARD, whether he goes by it or not. He was named after his father's best friend. He has never changed his name legally, to my knowledge. His first name is Willard--not Mitt. Period.ReplyDelete

El, you're welcome.ReplyDelete
He's a liar. He is mendacious Mitt. Thank you, Joseph.ReplyDelete
Have you seen his birth records? How do you know for sure? And why is that such a big deal anyway? I know people that go by pikachu so should I hate that person for lying to me about her name? Maybe he just really doesn't like that name, once again, who caresReplyDelete
