Romney Caught in Lie? (Video)

Caught Again?

Once again, at issue is Romneycare, and this time, it’s a piece of video that asks the question: “Is Mitt Romney a Liar?”

This one is going to be problematic for Romney, on the facts, and the idea that he claimed Romneycare is not like Obamacare given the interview with one of his advisers on the legislation, who also worked on Obamacare, is going to make this stick.  What is clear is that Romneycare is substantially the model for Obamacare, which raises all sorts of questions about Romney’s integrity on the issue.

  1. I am a hardcore Gingrich supporter, This video starts out good, but goes down hill. When Romney says "I want to use money for Obamacare, the clip is cut short. what did he mean, or at least let's here a couple of more words after that statement. the last thing is when they subtitle comes up under the MIT professor, it says "Romneys top aid" that is stretc
    hing it. I think there is plenty to pick from out there that we can hammer Romney with, without having to skirt around the edge. One off hand, why aren't we using his 2008 concession speech. He can use it again this time. He also state in that speech that Asia is a country.

    Romney's 2008 campaign suspension speech.
    Maybe he can just use this one again.

  2. CPB says:

    They should at least correct the " aid…" to "…top AIDE…". There is no excuse for ignorance and incorrect grammar – especially in something so publicly distributed.

    This video is too long and contrived-looking to use in commercials. You lose the sheeple with short attention spans very quickly.

    Look at
    This site has 104 things (albeit some of them are a little iffy) to make any kind of ad you want. Lots of material to choose from.

    This ad is a little shorter and is one of many that the DNC has already made about Romney (simple Google search). How on earth does anyone think he can defeat Obama with all of these ready to go? Shouldn't the fact that Romney is THE one that the DNC WANTS to run against tell us something?

    Romney's whole campaign seems to be built on lies, smears and money.

    ROMNEY LIES ON AIR – CNN Jacksonville, FL Debate

    1. He denied accusing Newt of exaggerating/lying about his part in Reagan's administration only three days before on Monday night in Tampa.
    2. He lied about his own 'ghetto language' ad that bore his voice
    3. He claimed all his business was run by a blind trust, a tactic that Mitt himself called 'the oldest ruse in the book' in a previous campaign.
    4. He said he voted for republicans in the past when there was a republican to vote for, but if you look back at the Gingrich ad exposing his lies, it turns out when George H.w. Bush and Buchanan were running, he voted for a liberal democrat.
    5. He denied the cost of Romneycare to taxpayers in Massachusetts. “Half of those people got insurance on their own. Others got help in buying the insurance.”
    False. In fact, 98% of the additional people insured after Romneycare was passed have it paid for or subsidized by the federal government or Massachusetts government. Of the 412,000 additional people who had health insurance in 2010 who did not have it in June 2006 (pre-reform), only 7K of the 412K (1.7%) had unsubsidized health insurance. The rest were covered through Medicaid, Commonwealth Care, or a program of subsidized care for the unemployed.
    6. He denied the impact of Romney care on citizens of Massachusetts. Romneycare has increased the price of healthcare premiums for every citizen of Massachusetts. Premiums have increased by 55 percent since Mitt Romney became Governor, a rate 13 points higher than the national average and the third highest growth rate among the states.
    7. He said he lowered taxes in Massachusetts 19 times. Yet he raised fees and corporate taxes twice. No wonder Massachusetts was rated at the bottom of all the states (47-49th) in job and business growth.

    Romney's departures from reality and truth are so frequent, they are disturbing…seemingly pathological.
    Other LIES and liars:
    Romney continues a smear/character assassination campaign by perpetuating the lie that Newt was guilty of the congressional investigation though he was exonerated.

    Romney is covertly lying by using the media such as Drudge, Coulter, Town Hall and other media resources to spread and perpetuate lies, innuendo and prejudice to shape popular opinion against Gingrich. Turns out, Romney's Bain Capital owns the company that owns Drudge. Who or what else does Romney own?

    We have watched stories 'appear' around the media in concert…like a coordinated military attack…using the same negative descriptors and slogans. The media has become nothing more than a paid political tool.

    As 'Judge Janine' interviewed Sarah Palin on Fox News, the smirky smile, snide innuendo, false assertions she used were similar to the snide facial expressions and comments Glenn Beck used when interviewing Newt. This 'Judge' has as little respect for the truth as Romney – she asked Palin, "So Newt is planning to make the moon the 51st State?"

    When a candidate has no other argument than lies, smears, personal attack, slander, money, shell and power games, we know that the candidate has no real argument or merit.

  4. Newt needs to come out and be honest. He needs to tell the public that Mitt Romney has nothing to say. Mitt and Barack both campaign with the same strategy. "I am going to make America great again" neither of these two told us how they plan to do it. Now we see Obama's plan. I don't want to wait and see Romney's
