Well, let's see--

  • He tried to get away with the "apology tour" lie but President Obama shot him down
  • He tried to get away with the smallest (weakest) Navy since 1916 lie but President Obama humiliated him
  • He tried to get away with the "weakened military" lie but again Obama tripped him up
  • He said that Syria was Iran's "route to the sea", although that may have been mere geographic ignorance on Willard's part
  • He tried to get away with the lie that America's prestige in the world has declined when in fact a BBC poll TODAY indicated overwhelming international support for President Obama over Willard
  • He managed to work in the auto industry bailout lie AGAIN!!
  • He told the lie that the U.S. is becoming just like Greece financially, but alas (from Think Progress):
During his closing statement, Romney said that the U.S. is headed down a path like that of Greece. But Greece, contrary to popular belief, had a revenue problem rather than a spending problem. While its spending was high compared to US standards — 50.4 percent of GDP compared to 38 percent of GDP in the US — its spending was average among European nations. As CAP’s Michael Linden and Sabina Dewan note, “Over the past 10 years, Greece has consistently spent less, as a share of GDP, than the European Union as a whole.” However, it generated less that 40 percent of GDP from revenue — one of the lowest rates in the EU.

In general, however, Willard tried to come off as reasonable, saying, in effect, I'll be just like Obama, only better!

That may have been the biggest lie of them all.
