so said Rachel Maddow bluntly last night on her show, backing it up with examples, and then noting Karl Rove also lied on Romney's behalf in his Wall Street Journal column.

If you did not see it, take the time to watch the video of that segment of TRMS show:

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

You will have to sit through a 30 second ad first, but you will find it worthwhile to watch the entire segment, which also includes an interview with Scott Helman of the Boston Globe, co-author of "The Real Romney" (which I also recommend).

With the intro commercial, it will take a bit over 15 minutes to watch the entire segment.

Trust me, it is worth it.

Now the only question is whether anyone besides Maddow is willing to be as blunt about the likely Republican nominee?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
