Mitt's Biggest Lie

Monday, October 08, 2012
Mitt's biggest lie! (You won't find this anywhere else...)
David Axelrod now says that Obama stumbled because he was taken aback by the "brazeness" of Romney's performance. Axelrod says -- I think correctly -- that Mitt's statements were "...completely unrooted in fact. It was completely unrooted in the positions he's taken before."

.........................................

Last night, I made one catch which no-one else seems to have noticed, except -- to a degree -- Igor Volsky, writing in Think Progress. And even he didn't turn on all the lights. Let's begin by quoting Igor:

6) “I saw a study that came out today that said you’re going to raise taxes by $3,000 to $4,000 on middle-income families.” Romney is pointing to this study from the American Enterprise Institute. It actually found that rather than raise taxes to pay down the debt, the Obama administration’s policies — those contained directly in his budget — would reduce the share of taxes that go toward servicing the debt by $1,289.89 per taxpayer in the $100,000 to $200,000 range.


I looked at that study. http://www.aei.org/files/2012/10/01/-a-simple-measure-of-the-distributional-burden-of-debt-accumulation_210316287852.pdf

Not only does it not say anything about Obama raising taxes on middle-income families -- it says, in fact, that Romney will make people in that income bracket pay more. Substantially more.

1. kpete - this is becoming so routine that factchecking R$ happens the moment he opens his mouth.

It's really tiring and . Really.

Like another poster said, if there were some extreme metallic anvil available, now would be a great time to drop it.

Time to crush this snake.

2. He continues with a blizzard of lies.

A literal snowcapolypse of prevarication.

3. I don't know, man. Trying to pin down his BIGGEST lie out of such a huge pile is a challenge.
