    Willard Mitt Romney—currently a right wing stalwart in spite of his past comments, currently  a supporter of the Paul Ryan $700 billion in mystery cuts (http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/...), currently an attacker of a health care bill based on his sound policies in old Mass; currently calling out the President for purported lack of leadership when Willard himself has never spoken to the Generals or President Karzai http://www.foxnews.com/... leveled an attack on President Obama as prone to straw man arguments.

    Based on the changes in Romney’s dramatic shifts over the last ten years, and his tendency to level charges of incompetence prefaced with admissions Romney himself doesn’t know all the facts,  could Mr. Romney himself be the liar?

    Stunning to me is how easily Romney talks points I’m sure Romney knows are false.  Take tax cuts and raising revenue.  Now, true believers like Ms. Palin will make such an argument based on their faith and ignorance.  Romney, however, has no such excuses.  When he makes the statements, he knows they are untrue: as Romney knows full well, tax cuts rarely if ever raise government revenue.  Yet Romney has no problem endorsing the opposite view.

    If Romney wins the White House, which I sadly think he will, he gets my vote as the greatest liar ever.   Stunning.  

Is Willard Mitt Romney the greatest liar ever?

       The Bush boys failed to kill Bin Laden; brought us into two lengthy wars; cratered the economy; road up a huge debt load; left their successor with an operating budget of over a trillion a year in debt..  Romney knows well enough it was the Republican Congress and White house which brought this country those ruinous policies with their predictable results.  

        Seems to me Obama’s made inroads on most of this—except for the debt as the Republicans refuse to raise taxes or let the “temporary” tax cuts for the rich expire.   If Obama had the votes, seems to me the economy would be about the same but the country would be running $200-$300 billion a year in lower deficits.  A man concerned with the health of the country would be concerned with correcting the incoherent views of certain voting blocks.  Romney courts them with well financed ad campaigns--truth be damned.

    If Romney wins the White House, which I sadly think he will, he gets my vote as the greatest liar ever. Karl Rove a close second.  Stunning.

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.
