'I'm Lying More,' He Says
“I’m lying a lot more, and my lies are far more egregious than they’ve ever been,” a smiling Romney told reporters while sitting in the back of his campaign bus, adding that when faced with a choice to either lie or tell the truth, he will more than likely lie. “It’s a strategy that works because when I lie, I’m essentially telling people what they want to hear, and people really like hearing things they want to hear. Even if they sort of know that nothing I’m saying is true.”So ... what's new?
“It’s a freeing strategy, really, because I don’t have to worry about facts or being accurate or having any concrete positions of any kind,” Romney added.
Romney said he is telling at least 80 percent more lies now than he was two months ago. Buoyed by his strong debate performance, which by his own admission included 40 or 50 instances of lying in one 90-minute period, the candidate said he will continue to “just openly lie [his] ass off” until the Nov. 6 election.
Whether it’s a senior citizen, military family, working mother, businessman, or middle-class American, Romney said, he will lie to every single one of them as often as he can if that’s what it takes to win the presidency.
Update and Quote of the Day:
From a great post you should read at Crooks and Liars about Willard's vapid and ignorant foreign policy speech to mandatory attendance cadets at VMI. He likes it when bosses make people attend his events under threats of penalty:
What would a Romney speech be without a lie? A speech given by someone else.There hasn't been a speech by any Repug candidate this election cycle that hasn't been full of lies. Not one. It doesn't matter whom they're talking to, either. They have lies ready for any audience.
