Cutting Through The Crap

A Policy Of Lying


He'd respond, no doubt, by saying that his cuts are offset by eliminating loopholes. But until he can say how much money a "20% across the board" cut would cost, and how much would be recaptured by closing the loopholes that he's yet to specify, and about which experts say that eliminating every deduction (and, presumably, the ability to hide money in Caymans) you can't make it balance, he's a liar. Period. You can say he "won" the debate -- which he did, on style points -- but he did it by lying and contradicting everything he's said until now.

Making it even more clear than it was before: we have no way of knowing who Mitt Romney is and what he believes. In fact, I think it's pretty clear: he believes only in winning at all costs. Lying and changing positions at will doesn't enter into it: if it helps him win, it's justified. 

What would he do after he wins, if he does? No one knows, not even Mitt. To him, it's beside the point.

Pssst Sid,
and I'm only repeating what I heard from a High Teabagger Source(i.e. Mrs. Drackman)...
but one of the "Loopholes" is how rich old farts(no offense) collect the same SSI/Medicare benefits as Poor Old Farts, in fact, don't pay any Federal Income Tax on what is clearly "Income".
it's even worse than regular "Income" cause you don't have to work for it, I don't care how many 300 hr weeks you worked in the old days.
But if Rominey says that, he'll lose the 99% of the Rich Old Fart Vote he's gonna get.
I mean He's Rich, not Stupid.
