You know, I'm just coming to loathe Willard and his lies. This one is particularly brazen:

On the president’s watch, about 100,000 jobs were lost in the auto industry and auto dealers and auto manufacturers, so he’s hardly one to point a finger.

A pathetic, typical damned Romney BS lie. Here is the truth of the matter, from the Bureau of Labor Statistics

Auto industry employment:

January 2009:                        690,700

June 2009 (the low point)  624,400

April 2012:                               763,800

Uh, Willard? That's a gain of almost 140,000 jobs from the lowest point, when OBAMA'S rescue of the auto industry started to be felt. Even if one wishes to start at the very beginning of the Obama Administration, there is still a gain of over 73,000. The claim that 100,000 auto workers have lost their jobs is yet another way that Mitt Romney spits in people's faces by assuming they're too stupid or gullible to check up on him.

But I'm not.

  1. You'll particularly enjoy Bill Maher's discussion of (R)money's lies, and the news media's inadequately, on this week's show.

  2. Facts are stubborn things!

    I reblogged this about his arrest record. I don't know his lies on the arrests and run ins with the law.

    It would be nice to find some former schoolmates of Willard's to find out when his pattern of lying began.

    It would also be interesting to know if a pathological liar like Mitt Romney could pass a lie detector test.

    Although little has been written about pathological lying, one study found a prevalence of almost 1 in 1000 repeat juvenile offenders. The average age of onset is 16 years, and its occurrence was found by the study to be equal in women and men. Forty percent of cases reported central nervous system abnormality (characterized by epilepsy, abnormal EEG findings, head trauma, or CNS infection)

    The defining characteristics of pseudologia fantastica are:

    The stories told are not entirely improbable and often have some element of truth. They are not a manifestation of delusion or some broader type of psychosis: upon confrontation, the teller can admit them to be untrue, even if unwillingly.

    The fabricative tendency is long lasting; it is not provoked by the immediate situation or social pressure as much as it is an innate trait of the personality.

    A definitely internal, not an external, motive for the behavior can be discerned clinically: e.g. long lasting extortion or habitual spousal battery might cause a person to lie repeatedly, without the lying being a pathological symptom.[2]

    The stories told tend toward presenting the liar favorably. For example, the person might be presented as being fantastically brave, knowing or being related to many famous people.

  3. Thanks for a great blog. I was able to get the information that I had been looking for. Thanks once again!

    Very Well

Auto industry has always demand for the skilled people for their production. from the news: The Canadian industry is attracting less investment, creating fewer jobs, it is showing different impact on the auto industry employment by the changing behavior of Auto Manufacturing industries.Automotive Market Research Report
