Top Ten Mitt Romney Lies

Repugnican 2008 presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is turning out to be a perpetual liar. His latest fib, about "seeing" his father march with Dr Martin Luther King, is receiving a lot of attention in the blogosphere, but this is just one of many lies Romney has fabricated.

In that light, here are the Top Ten Lies told by Mitt Romney:

10. I am a Mormon
9. I am conservative
8. I am a hunter
7. I am the 2nd coming of Ronald Reagan
6. I cried when my church announced it would recognize blacks
5. I don't get $400 hair cuts
4. I got tough on meth
3. I am tough on illegal immigration
2. My boys have served this country
1. I watched my father march with Martin Luther King
Bonus: #1: I am pro-life

10. Okay, Mitt Romney is a Mormon. Who cares? Obviously, every other religion in the world and many atheists care. They believe Mormonism is at best a disease, and at worst the Devil reincarnate. But I don't give a damn. There are good Mormons and bad Mormons, just like everything else.

I hate it, though, when anybody stands up and tells me what their faith is. Don't tell it -- do it, be it, act it, live it. If you believe that Charlie Sheen is god, then, dammit, act like it. But don't tell me, I'll just think you're freakin' crazy.

9. Romney is not a Conservative. None of the self-described Republican candidates have any resemblance to a Conservative, in a fiscal sense or any other sense, except for maybe Fred "Flintstone" Thompson.

8. Brother, P-L-E-A-S-E! First, you were a hunter, without a license, then a varmint hunter. Come on, you hunt for campaign contributions, Elmer.

7. I knew Ronald Reagan, and you're no Ronald Reagan! (Okay, I "knew" Ronald Reagan like Mitt "saw" his dad march with MLK -- see #1 below.)

6. I bet he did, but not for the reason he implied. They weren't tears of joy he shed, but rather tears of fears. White men are afraid of blacks, especially when it comes to sharing their faith. And aren't blacks Islamic fundamentalists? That's what our government and media want us to believe.

5. Right, you get $500 haircuts. You rich bastard.

4. Tough on meth, just like he got tough on all crime. Read more here about his lies on crime fighting.

3. Tough on illegal immigration? Sure.

2. Romney's sons are serving his campaign, and by ridiculous extension, since he's running for president, this country. What a crock of bullshit.

1. Romney suffers from dictionary dyslexia. Like Bill Clinton and his "depends on the definition of is...", Romney is now backpedaling on his physically seeing his father march with MLK to his daddy told him so, to the not-so-literal march in terms of "I had his back." Such a complete liar.

Bonus #1. As I said before, don't say it, do it. Romney, by his very actions, was effectively pro-choice. Now he says he's pro-life. But there is not a shred of evidence to support his lie. Maybe that's the way he feels, but his actions while an elected official seem to indicate otherwise.

This concludes my Rant against Romney. Surely more lies will surface once Romney realizes he's losing to a girl. Or a black man.

Please provide evidence to your accusations. Yes, he is a lawyer besides businessman and knows people will act as if he is a criminal:

"Everything you say can and will be used against you."

Nevertheless, he has evidence to verify everything he claims despite the evidence to the contrary. In the mean time, since both sides have evidence, our standard is:

"Innocent until proven guilty."

You convict yourself of lying with the first item you posted (#10). I am sure you are trying to be a good person, just as sure as WMR is and has been one. I see a sinner, and I see a saint, and they are the same person.

Meanwhile, it is funny that nobody has disagreed with you since you can filter out everything you don't like.

@daniel c:

Did you read my post? #10 was a joke. As I said in the post, I don't care if he's Mormon. What difference does it make?

How does that make me a liar?

By the way, I haven't "filtered" out any comments. In fact, I've posted every comment to every post on every blog I publish. Just as you seem to accuse me of making stuff up, I can say the same for you.

Bottom line is, I think you and I agree. Romney is a sinner as are the rest of us. Some of us keep on sinning (like lying) while others of us try not to repeat the same mistakes over and over and over again.

Can Romney say that? He's a liar, he's a politician, he's a sinner. I was merely pointing out his lies, lies that are verifiable by independent third parties, rather than those based on faith that you seem to have put in the man.

Further, this is an opinion blog with some attempted humor. Take that for what it's worth.

I thought everything here was a valid criticism of Romney. He has gained a reputation for not telling the truth. I have a blog post here on why I think that happened:
