Last night, Mitt Romney said President Obama was lying about his $5 trillion tax cut plan. "I will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income Americans," Romney said. But in February, the very same Mitt Romney called Rick Santorum a liar for saying Romney wouldn't raise cut taxes on the wealthy. "We're going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20 percent," Romney promised. "Including the top one percent."

And as you can see in the video at the top of this post, it's all on YouTube.

So I guess it turns out that Mitt Romney's fiercest debate opponent ... is Mitt Romney.

h/t: BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski for remembering Romney's Arizona debate pledge to cut taxes on the top one percent.

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.

    Mitt Romney called Rick Santorum a liar for saying Romney wouldn't raise taxes on the wealthy. "We're going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20 percent,"

    Is that supposed to be Santorum said Romney would raise taxes on the wealthy?

  •  A three legged bullshit stool (4+ / 0-)

    we can cut tax rates and still be revenue neutral, while the SHARE of the tax burden paid by the rich stays the same.

    Why does it require the qualifier "share of the tax burden?"
    If the plan is revenue neutral, "same share of the tax burden" would mean "same tax bill."

    Unless:
    -It's just a shout-out to those who think rich people are paying an unfair "share of the tax burden" already.

    -It's a shout-out to Tom Sowell and the Great Depression revisionists, who pretend that Cal Coolidge's tax cuts were good for the economy.

    -It's a shout-out to the rich, who Romney will make even richer so that they can pay a lower tax rate and still maintain the same "share of the tax burden" as they do now.  Note that this only works if it's their relative wealth that's increasing, it won't be true if everyone else is also getting richer.

    I just genetically engineer them, I don't nominate them for President.

      The Root of Mitt Romney’s Comfort with Lying
      The presidential candidate is used to faith-based certainty that translates as truth even in the face of evidence to the contrary
      By Justin Frank, M.D.

      SNIP
      . . . . But in the Mormon Church, there was a decision to accept authority as true — whether or not evidence supported it. Hence Joseph Smith, the founder of the faith in 1820, claimed he was illiterate and received the Book of Mormon directly from God. But he could read, and read very well.

      This unwavering faith is central to Romney’s comfort in deflecting any examples that the press might bring up of his lying. Further, it allows him to repeat lies again and again — both personally and in political advertising — because to him they are not lies at all.

                Obama and the Democratic party are not yet in the 'wholly owned' position of the GOP. However if you're suggesting they moving in that way you may be right. Facism wants to have control of all political parties so two is better than one. They also use their vast resources to muddy the waters by calling others names and claiming others are doing what the facists are doing... sound familiar?

    I think Obama made a strategic decision early on, as though he were a trial lawyer or a detective questioning a subject, to let Romney think he was being smart by talking the way he did - that calling him on his lies would have been the story if he did. Obama didn't - now after a first reaction about how weak Obama was, now the story is more and more Romney's lies.

    I don't think this was 3D chess - I think is was just a decision Obama made early on that he couldn't compete on this level once Romney got started. He also may have rationalized that if Romney had a great debate, the way these things work, he'd be expected to be as good next time (as happened to Mondale and Kerry when they won). Now if he comes back harder the next time, Romney might have already played his best card.

    I like that Biden is up against Ryan next week. This is entirely new to Ryan at this level. He likely gets prickly. Biden will be feisty. And my guess the Romney/Ryan ticket is put back on the defensive.

      blah blah

      What they didn't expect and what I think stunned Obama early on, was the shift to the center. The complete denial of anything he's said in the last 12 months.

      I love teachers!
      We need regulation!
      Clean coal and solar and wind!

      I think that broadsided Obama and at that point he made a decision:

      Do I try to argue with him that he's contradicting everything he's said for 12 months or do I let him keep talking?

      I think it would have been nice for Obama to say: This is a new Mitt America. Forget everything he said for the last 12 months.

      But instead I think he made the decision that 1) he's ahead 2) there are two more debates and five more weeks 3) this will allow him to get things on tape 4) it plays into the narrative of romney being an abject opportunist with no core - a narrative that they've been exploiting in various ways since April. I personally think the final question is: who is mitt romney and do you really know what you'd get if you vote for him?

      I think that's part of Team O's strategy in the final stretch and I think Obama was so stunned that he made a decision to just let the guy rattle on knowing that it would be useful in the next few weeks to make their final closing argument against him.

          will already be out there. No need to cut new ones.

          the reality is Mitt is not going to go back to the right. he will continue the lies and the faux-centrist positions.

          our job is to exploit his opportunism between now and the next debate so that when Obama says: "You know, Governor, what you're saying now is 180 degrees different than what you said 6-8 months ago. Which is it? Which of your positions are Americans supposed to be voting for?"

          So that when Obama says that, the viewers have a frame of reference.

          Our second job, while Mitt is off being a super centrist is to depress the GOP base. I think right now they're just happy he saved himself from complete annihilation last night. But think about it: they never really trusted him, did they? And if two three and four weeks go by and he's acting like some sort of slightly-to-the-left-of-obama candidate - and still losing....well, we're partisans here....what would you be feeling?

          I think we can do all that. And thankfully we have plenty of Mitt vs. Mitt ad materials. It's going to get interesting. Ultimately we win.

        But from what I can gather Romney's position was that if you eliminate deductions the wealthy will pay the same amount even with the rates lower and that the middle class will actually benefit from the tax cut.

        But I don't know how it can be deficit neutral. That is voodoo economics.

      Really. The only thing, though, is that Romney talked specifically about tax rates in that final clip. If he pivots to "closing loopholes," we're back to the original debate where he refuses to specify those loopholes.

      Basically he's either going to lower everyone's tax burden by cutting rates (including the "top 1%" - can you believe they have to specify that in a debate?), or he's going to raise everyone's tax burden - including that of the middle class - by slashing rates and closing loopholes. Or else he's going to have to explain where he's getting the fairy dust that allows him to do one without the other without also increasing the deficit.

      And he can't do that.

    . . . . . Common Cause, written by Tom Crompton of the environment group WWF, examines a series of fascinating recent advances in the field of psychology. It offers, I believe, a remedy to the blight that now afflicts every good cause from welfare to climate change.

    Progressives, he shows, have been suckers for a myth of human cognition he labels the enlightenment model. This holds that people make rational decisions by assessing facts. All that has to be done to persuade people is to lay out the data: they will then use it to decide which options best support their interests and desires.

    A host of psychological experiments demonstrate that it doesn't work like this. Instead of performing a rational cost-benefit analysis, we accept information that confirms our identity and values, and reject information that conflicts with them. We mould our thinking around our social identity, protecting it from serious challenge. Confronting people with inconvenient facts is likely only to harden their resistance to change.

  •  Maybe THIS was the plan all along? (0+ / 0-)

    sure we wanted Obama to come out swinging and call Romney ion his lies BUT IF u rewatch the debate Obama tried that and got bullied under even more lies....

    but maybe the O team always knew they could 'get Mitt' after the fact with vids of Mitt's own lies?

    great vid jed, already 'sharing'

  •  Etch-a-Sketch Debate (0+ / 0-)

    This Debate was just what Fehrnstrom warned about - Mitt's Etch-a-Sketch Moment.

    Mitt renounced and reversed every position that he has previously taken in the 2012 Campaign.

    As far as pre-existing conditions.  Mitt is 100% correct.  Mitt's plan to allow patients without medical care to go to emergency rooms is a plan in which every emergency room provides medical care - regardless of pre-existing conditions!

    That's how.
    Pres. Obama didn't have to do much last night. Mitt Romney is fighting himself quite nicely on his own.

    Does anyone remember that Bob Dole ran in 1996 with a promise of a 15% "across the board" tax cut? It was horseshit then, and it's horseshit now.

  •  Mitt Romney: The Great Deceiver (0+ / 0-)

    The Great Deceiver.  John 8:44. http://youtu.be/...

    The Mormon Practice of "Lying for the Lord".
    http://www.mormonwiki.org/...

    The Mormon "White Horse Prophecy".
    http://en.wikipedia.org/...

    Government Required Voter ID is a Back Door to the Mark of the Beast.  Revelation 13:16-17.

    Baptism of dead non-Mormons and claiming it is Christian.  Revelation 13:5-7.
    - Mitt Romney's claim that the Mormon God is the same as the Christian God is blasphemy
    - the Mormon practice of baptizing dead Christians people

    I fear the USA will be baptized Mormon and will lose the Christian spiritual covering with a Mormon in the White House.
    ______________
    These links, bible verses, titles should be placed on every conservative, religious, and  political website - democrats should be going squarely at the evangelical vote - not to get them to vote for Obama - they never will on account of his name, his race, and his subdued references to his Christian faith - however there is a deeper issue with Romney, his lies, his status as a Bishop in a very enigmatic group that rightfully makes them uncomfortable - and me, a conservative Christian.

    Ironically, Obama is the only Protestant in this election and yet the devil has deceived Christians into supporting  the non-Christian candidate.

    I am not good with computers but if someone can help with a graphic or picture to get these words out now we can save our country and maybe shake the deceived evangelicals out of their trance.

    I am not a bigot or crazy - I am lead by my Christian faith and my belief based on the aggressiveness and ease with which Mitt Romney speaks untruths.

    No man, or President, beat the Great Deceiver in  a spoken contest for he is the Prince of Lies.

    •  Got a diary for you............ (0+ / 0-)

      very detailed.

      "White Horse Prophesy" and The Revelation of St. John the Divine, Chapter 6

      -- http://www.dailykos.com/...

      (A long read for internet stuff.)

      Apparently Smith blundered. Romney believes he is the man on the White Horse, who in The Revelation in the original unaltered Bible is the Anti-Christ.

      Christianity 501.

      He was telling people this connection 50 years ago and then again in France. Not knowing the man on the White Horse is the Anti-Christ in The Revelation. Mormons read their own Smith-altered version of the Bible.

      Enjoy!
