You mean like these?

"Obama took $700M from Medicare programs to pay for Obamacare". 100% False.
"The Ryan budget protects Medicare". 100% False.
"I never said the Mass. health plan was a national model". 100% False.
"I saved the Salt Lake Olympics". 100% False.
"Obama is making it harder for veterans to vote". 100% False.
"The Ryan budget will reduce the deficit". 100% False.
"We built that". 100% dishonest, even ignoring the fact that many of the participants in those ads got where they are with government loans, government education, and, in many cases, government contracts!
"Obama is taking the work requirement out of welfare". 100% False.

What does it say about the challenger that he can't come up with even one factual criticism of the president?

It's not the Democrats' fault that the Republicans selected the worst candidate they could find to run against Obama. Now they have nothing but crying about criticism of said candidate being "unfair."

Nobody in the general public knows if Romney has good standing with the IRS. You cannot call Reid's statement 100% false--unsupported, sure. Unsubstantiated, of course. But not explicitly false. Does he have good standing? Did he have to take amnesty in 2009? He could actually have some outstanding tax issues and we wouldn't know.

I would ask what Romney did that actually "saved" the Olympics. What was it? Getting even more loans?

Why is it unfair to pick on Romney for his stupid tax plan? Why is it unfair to point out the fact that he would have to raise the actual amount of taxes paid by middle-income people to support the lowered taxes on the very wealthy?
 
2012-08-20 09:14:13 AM
It says Romney is desperate and afraid Obama is landing punches. So Romney is complaining he's being unfairly attacked.

But I guess complaining is easier than actually explaining your positions (which requires having said positions in the first place).

Yeah, the republicans shouldn't lie so much and make so many false claims.

But, birds gotta fly, fish gotta swim.

What attack against Romney has been exaggerated or false? That he is a robot?

That's the only possibility I can think of, unless he actually did release his tax returns.
 
2012-08-20 10:36:56 AM
This coming from the people who think Obama fabricated his birth certificate. We've gone 'round the bend.
 
2012-08-20 10:43:56 AM
Too bad this country is so full of idiots that we even have to consider the possibility that Romney could conceivably win. I don't think he will, but it's a possibility. People are just that stupid.

Considering how many times he keeps getting owned by one scandal or another, its kinda hard to trust his word because of how much bullshiat he has done

/fark Romney

The one where it was Romney's fault that a woman died of cancer crossed a line but that was not an official DNC ad. Other than that, the attacks on Romney have been very legitimate.

If you consider Romney also wants to cancel Obamacare, I think is fair to indicate that people will die from lack of insurance company. Let Romney dispute that than you come out with the ads like the one above.

Ha, for some reason that brought to mind an Obama campaign stop back in 2008 where some jerk in the balcony interrupted to yell that they couldn't possibly start the meeting without saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Obama totally pwned him by responding calmly, "Thank you sir. Perhaps you'd like to lead us in saying the Pledge right now?". Of course, the jerk didn't actually know the words...

/Off to look for that on YouTube...

Didn't Romney (or one of his aides) say that ad was more or less accurate, though?

Lying works with a poorly educated, economically stressed population. Hitler knew that. just tell the same lies over and over. eventually the dummies will believe it. lying starts taking on a legitimacy if its repeated often enough.

And what's amazing is that ALL of those occurred just over the last week or two.


What a high-profile attack on Obama may look like:
