Inconvenient Truths


Question: How do you know when Mitt Romeny is lying? Answer: When he opens his mouth.  Every time he talks, Mitt Romney digs himself into one hole after another. Like a worn cliché, he can’t help himself. Such pathology makes the phoney “maverick,” desperate 2008 candidate, and tireless serial trumped-up war-monger, John McCain, look like a truth-teller.  

But Mittens has a problem. With an improving economy underway, what’s a liar like himself to do?  Tell GOPHERS to dummy up about the improving economy.  Think Progress has a story up about just that.  It seems Mittens has told Republican Governors not to talk about the improving economy.  He’s not happy with such positive talk because it renders his bull what it is, a lie.

ThinkProgress cites a Bloomberg News article finding that the Romney campaign directly asked Florida Gov. Rick Scott do cool references to an improved Florida economy.  After all, that would render Mitt what he is-a liar.  Romney is also overplaying the portrayal of Iowa as struggling more than it is, much to the IW governor’s chagrin.  But the word has apparently gone out that the governors and the Chamber of Commerce should be careful not to trumpet improving numbers.  Talk about no coattails for them!

    When he isn’t lying, he’s equivocating.  He is sometimes so unwilling (incapable?) to say anything of substance that the bull he slings sounds a lot like the buzzwords the BOV at UVA speak. How anyone can support the huckster is beyond me. He’s the embodiment not only of what is wrong with corporate America, but also our once revered institutions which have bought into the run-everything-like-a-business claptrap. As I said before, why would anyone trust Wall Streeters and hedge fund managers to improve economy when they wrecked it in 2007-8?  They are the problem, not the solution.  They are good only at using a wrecking ball to create vast wealth for themselves at everyone else’s expense.
