Romney Says Obama Will Lie in Debates: VIDEO


In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Mitt Romney discussed his reaction to the Libyan attacks, his poll numbers, and how he is preparing for debates. He says he is preparing to face a liar:

“I think the challenge that I’ll have in the debate is that the president tends to, how shall I say it, to say things that aren’t true,” Romney said. “I’ve looked at prior debates.  And in that kind of case, it’s difficult to say, ‘Well, am I going to spend my time correcting things that aren’t quite accurate? Or am I going to spend my time talking about the things I want to talk about?”

  4. Oh, Gigi. You don't give Willard enough credit. This guy makes Nixon look honest.

    The work requirement in welfare reform? $716 billion in cuts to Medicare payments to insurance companies which were used to close the donut hole for seniors and extend the life of Medicare? The really big lies upon which Romney has based his campaign are unprecedented in modern presidential elections. Politifact.com is not your friend, Willard!

  7. Classic projection- accuse the other guy of doing what you're guilty of.

    I'm convinced Romney is a clinical sociopath according to the guidelines of the DSM and Hare's Psychopathology Checklist. (Sociopath and Psychopath are interchangeable terms.)The reason he can say anything, contradict himself several times in the same day, is because he has no core values other than personal ambition.

    Looked at through that lens a LOT of things in Romney's past suddenly make sense- the school bullying, the Seamus incident, his lack of empathy and inability to connect, inappropriate responses, hostile reactions to authority (Olympic guard, arrest at lake), Bain business practices, liberal in MA/Conservative now, cold and "robotic" demeanor- the list goes on. It's why you get that "uncanny valley" feeling from him like you're watching something pretending to be human but not quite pulling it off.

  8. Putting aside the obvious hypocrisy, I think it's very funny that he's pretending they're actually having this debate about how to handle Obama's supposed lies. Of course Romney will ignore them and talk about what he wants to talk about. He'll also ignore all the moderator questions and everything else that's going on in the room. romney is currently having his talking points tattooed to his brain so he can be just like a wind up doll, and will spew out his talking points regardless of whether they relate to the question at hand, no more and no less.

  9. You got it, Brian.

    Romney's a Replicant. Every time he opens his mouth I expect him to say "Do you like our owl?"

  10. Gotta love that he equates "chaos" with "fun."

    He must be having a blast lately!

  11. Given Mitt's numerous flip flops, Romney is a pathological liar.

    Posted by: Jim | Sep 14, 2012 9:39:19 AM

  12. ROFL.....Projection much? Mittens has told over 600 lies in the last 30 days including one very big one that proves his plebeian foreign policy would start WW3. SHUT THE F@#K UP Mittens you uneducated barbarian.

  13. And Stephanopoulos wimps out on the questions -- just like every other network-news journalist, from David Gregory on down.

  14. Well there it is: the full Goebbels.

    This is not some unconscious projection. This is a calculated propaganda campaign, deliberately lying to a segment of the population that Fox News has, over the years, carefully cordoned off from reality.

  15. Gigi, it's actually an insult to the memory of NIXON to associate him with Romney! As amazing as it seems, Nixon would practically be a democrat these days on many issues. Romney is best compared to Herbert Hoover, and even that's probably a stretch.

    And, as for trying to pre-spoil the debates...smooth move there, Mittens. Liar liar, pants on fire - is the best you can come up with? Without his father's prestige backing him up and paying for his prestige education, this guy would be selling used cars in Provo.

  16. And Mr. Romney could have been pointing out said "things that aren't true," if such exists, BEFORE the debates take place. Problem is, he hasn't. My assertion is that Romney is setting up so when he doesn't explain why he has not produced more tax returns, why his budget plan fails economically, why his name appears on the NOM pledge to traditional marriage, it will be because he was soooo busy with trying to refute lies.

    Good move on his part. So, how do you make this tactic a failure?

  17. Caliban, I have not seen a more astute explanation of Romney than yours.

    Posted by: Patric | Sep 14, 2012 9:50:42 AM

  18. Not that Nixon wasn't a corrupt liar - I merely meant on an overall scale of regressive politics, Romney is much more evil.

  19. This is straight out of the Karl Rove playbook. Project your faults onto your opponent. If your opponent is a war hero and you never served in a war, then call your opponent a coward and say he didn't deserve his medals. If you're a liar... Well, see above video.

  20. Caliban, you do have a convincing case there. Not to flaunt Godwin's law, but it's pretty terrifying to think this man might share the same sort of soul as Hitler's.

    Posted by: EchtKultig | Sep 14, 2012 9:58:25 AM

  21. Are you kidding me? This man is despicable.

    Posted by: gary | Sep 14, 2012 9:59:27 AM

  22. Oh, honestly Lucy, I mean Mitt. Getting us to lower our expectations of you BEFORE the debates. This is not the way to do debate prep. Anyone who's participated in Student Council knows that.

  23. Crap, that was depressing! (Seeing a picture of Romney's family!!!)
