America's #1 political prostitute (who really should charge by the hour) was speaking to the National Rifle Association's gathered members recently, and he told another BRAZEN LIE about President Obama. Let Charles Pierce elaborate for us:

"In a second term, he would be unrestrained by the demands of re-election," Romney told a crowd estimated at 6,000 in the cavernous Edward Jones Dome. "As he told the Russian president last month when he thought no one else was listening, after a re-election he'll have a lot more, quote, 'flexibility' to do what he wants. I'm not exactly sure what he meant by that, but looking at his first three years, I have a very good idea." Referring specifically to the right to bear arms, Romney said: "If we are going to safeguard our Second Amendment, it is time to elect a president who will defend the rights President Obama ignores or minimizes. I will."

Let us begin briefly by noting, as we always must do after every Romney oration, what a whopping big lie this is. There is nothing in the first three years of the Obama Administration that indicates that he's going to embark on a wildassed gun-grabbing spree as soon as they put away the Bible next January. (Romney can ask some liberals, if he doesn't want to believe me.) What gun rights, precisely, has the president ignored or minimized? And, if all he does is ignore them or minimize them, isn't that what these people want, as long as he doesn't curtail the fundamental American freedom to open up with an AK if the gardener looks at you crosswise? He's given up on having his lies make sense.

Indeed. Romney will spew any lie he thinks will advance the only cause he really believes: his own advancement. President Obama has NOT attacked gun rights in his first term. Check the record. Romney is simply feeding the ugly, hate-filled, ranting fantasies of the hard-right fanatics. Never has there been a more shameless, more unprincipled candidate for the presidency. The more Romney lies, the more we have to keep calling him on it. 

It's a challenge to keep up.
