Has Romney said ANYTHING in the last 6 months that hasn't either directly contradicted his previous statements, his political record, or been proven to be an outright lie?

The only opponent that Mitt Romney fears more than a fully operational Obama campaign staff is Mitt Romney circa 10 minutes ago...

that was months ago, submitter! you can't hold romney to something he said five minutes ago - let alone months!
 
2012-08-07 12:28:26 PM
I'm still waiting for him to say something that ISN'T completely contradicted by something else he has said in the past. That would be worthy of the newsflash tag.

Republicans over the years have shown that it doesn't matter what words actually mean, or what reality actually is like. What matters is what sounds good in the moment, whatever gets you on TV, and whatever is easy to repeat.

Romney is just the most pure example of this trait that they've found so far.

Mitt Romney: the truth only survives as long as its echo bounces around the room.

It just shows how fast the liberal machine can corrupt even the Tax Policy Center.

More flip flops then the US gymnastics team. I'm actually quite impressed.

It's pretty obvious at this point Romneybot is simply carrying out his programming where he agrees with whatever proves his point.

Meh, they do this all the time with Human Rights Watch. It's the Worst Organization Ever when it criticizes the US or Israel but always gets cited when atrocities turn up in other nations we have a beef with.

Has Romney provided any concrete evidence that his tax plan doesn't overwhelmingly favor the wealthiest Americans at the expense of the poor and middle classes?

So far, all I've seen from his campaign is, "No, it doesn't!"

True. And to be fair, there are similar idiots on the left. There are just so many MORE of them on the right, it's amazing sometimes.

What else is needed? If you aren't going to take Romney at his word, then you weren't going to vote for him anyway. You're just a victim of the progressive agenda in the lamestream media on the left. If the democreeps and libbocrats are already making you doubt the word of the local challenger against the foreign usurper, you're too weak-minded to be trusted to vote on Monday, November 5. Just throw out your registration card, no need to turn it in.

No. Maybe we should just stop referring to anything Romney said in the past. That would make him look like a much better candidate.

To be fair they've also offered the ad hominem referenced by TFA to go along with unsubstantiated contradiction.

I'm still laughing at Obama calling him Romney Hood earlier today because of the tax plan. And if Romney thinks this all of this is bad, just wait until closer to the election.

His VP pick better knock the socks off everyone, because it's about the only chance between now and the convention for him to not look like a complete dullard.

The media is indeed a putrid puddle of disingenuous whores who've long forgotten the very meaning of objective journalism, but both this article and the video Dusk-You-n-Me linked upthread are examples of the media calling out Mittwit's insincerity.

It's not happening enough, though. Should be happening every god damn time his name is uttered.

IT'S A TRAP! Don't listen to him!

If you go to vote on Monday, they'll check if you have an outstanding warrant, or unpaid child support, rent, or parking / traffic tickets!

Vote on Wednesday November 7, after they've nailed the suckers who went early!

/palelizard, you fool! Some states have early voting, you know!
