Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

     Ronald Reagan Jr. (Ron) was on Hardball with Chris Matthews Tuesday night.  They were talking about Romney's lie-of-the-day where he falsely tried to spew that Chrysler's Jeep was shipping American jobs to China.


MATTHEWS: Well, they`re not backing down, of course. They`re also running misleading radio ads on the same topic in cities like Dayton and Toledo.

This stuff, you know, weeks ago, the Romney campaign said, we`re not going to let this campaign be run by fact-checkers. I mean, I have never heard it said, you just say, we don`t care if you find out we`re lying. Lying is a bad word. We don`t care if you catch us. We`re going to keep doing it, because we`re desperate.

Ron Reagan was lit up and blasted Romney with both barrels:
RON REAGAN: ... influenced by fact-checkers. Yes, well, they may be desperate. Look, Ohio is going to be the clincher for this election. Everybody has been saying it and it`s probably true.

       So, Mitt Romney probably hopes that the truth isn't going to find him in Ohio at some point here.

       He's been a shapeshifter his entire political career. This shouldn't surprise us, and yet somehow he's taken it to a new level. The Romney campaign attaches itself to untruth like a sexually aroused little dog on a visitor's leg. I mean, it just starts humping away at these lies here.

       As you said, he makes the speech where he says that he read something somewhere about Jeep going overseas to China. It's pointed out to him that`s not true.

       Chrysler points out to him that that's not true. So what does he do?
Doubles down with a TV ad.

       That`s point -- it's pointed out that that ad is not true. What does he do? Triples down with a radio ad, too. It is just extraordinary. And the question is, do Ohioans, do Americans, does the media tolerate this level of dishonesty from a presidential candidate? I hope not.

     I could not have said it any better than Ron Reagan.  Thanks Ron!  What a brilliant analogy:
The Romney campaign attaches itself to untruth like a sexually aroused little dog on a visitor`s leg. ... it just starts humping away at these lies

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

       Romney really does think we still live in the Cold War Era -- a time before the internet could get the truth out in exponential time, or at least, with the same speed a lie is spewed.

       By the time Romney finished telling his first Jeep lie, have the world new it was a lie thanks to the internet.  Then, when Romney doubled down on the lie with his TV and radio ad, the entire world was reminded that Mitt Romney is a pathological liar ... or as Ron Reagan said, "The Romney campaign attaches itself to untruth like a sexually aroused little dog on a visitor`s leg. ... it just starts humping away at these lies"
