Steven Benen has been doing a great job picking apart Romney’s speeches. I tend to get numbed to it over time, but Romney is quite the liar, and for some reason this week’s edition stood out, especially these two:
15. In a speech in Virginia yesterday, Romney blamed “card check” for making things “tougher” on businesses.
Card check didn’t pass, so it’s impossible for Romney’s argument to be true.
18. Romney went on to condemn Obama for “shutting down” a “wonderful” school voucher program in the District of Columbia.
Obama didn’t shut down the school voucher program in the District of Columbia. It still exists.
Some of the lies Benen chronicles require some explanation and background to understand, but these two are just plain old lies. Where are Mitt’s “Pants on Fire” and “Pinocchio” ratings?
