I really like Romney Lie Number Six:
With America in crisis, with 23 million people out of work or stopped looking for work, President Obama hasn’t put forth a plan to get us working again. Now I know we’re getting close to an election so he’ll come out with one soon, but three and a half years later, we’re waiting.
This lie shows just how far Mitt Romney will push the envelope of lying, because less than a year ago, Barack Obama gave a prime time address to Congress outlining his “American Jobs Act.” I watched it. In fact, I happen to have it right here:
Fox News carried this speech, so even the wingnuts can’t say it never happened. Well, maybe they can. They’re wingnuts, after all. They might say anything. But I digress.
Romney Lie Number Six is awesome because it shows that Romney’s dishonesty has no human limits. I’m reminded of a line from Apocalypse Now:
And I thought, my God . . . the genius of that! The genius! The will to do that! Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they were stronger than we . . .
The horror . . . the horror . . .
