Cataloging Mitt Romney’s Lies, Does it Matter to You?

UPDATE, August 10:

I see this article is being promoted by supporters of Barack Obama. That is fair and to supplement this list of alleged-to-demonstrated Romney lies, for their education we will link to the following, too, from The Blaze:

Have You Seen The List Of 75 Documented Lies That Obama Has Told?


Have you found any mistruths among these reported lies?

Wednesday, April 18, 2012; 10:10pm CT

Slow down and just take a look at this… please.

It is a list of alleged lies of Mitt Romney, that is making its way around the Internet, in comments to articles or in forums. Gulag Bound has already verified and chronicled some of them. We are now walking through the list. If you find any items here that are not accurate, please bring them to our attention via comment and we would hope to do the same.

We citizens are ultimately responsible for this. Of Gov. Romney’s many assertions, whether it is about pro-life policy, or dismantling Obamacare, or tax policy (whatever tax policy he has) or national defense, of what may we be sure?

How about any assurances of a basic belief in America, vs. succumbing to fascistic global governance, nationhood no more? And then, where are any rights?

At this critical time, how could we possibly afford four more years of lies?

This particular list was found as a comment, by “StNikao” at TheRightScoop:

Ruthlessness should be fought with Truthfulness.

So far, Romney not shown he is capable of truthfulness.

LIED IN LAST DEBATE – ARIZONA – http://www.therightscoop.com/r…

ROMNEY SEVEN DOCUMENTED LIES ON AIR – CNN Jacksonville, FL in front of 5.36 million of viewers.

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 accusing Newt of saying Spanish was a ‘ghetto language’ in an 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 near the bottom (47-49th) in job and business growth.

PROJECTION – Psychological defense, typical of liberal left – symptom of psychological dishonesty and denial – accusing others of one’s own behavior/character flaws

So, perhaps we will update this, with any corrections – or additions  of lies they missed. In the meantime, let us go through it together.

Should we attempt to compile a complete list?

Doesn’t this matter anymore to American voters?

Or, are we so trapped liked penned sheep in a controlled right/left paradigm that it no longer matters whether we have an honest (or completely sane) United States President?

What will do any good, to prevent a Romney/Obama train wreck?

  1. StrangernFiction says:

    The “opposition party” nominating Mitt Romney is more tragic and ominous than Obama becoming president.

    • Conniption Fitz says:

      Absolutely. It is a betrayal and shows their contempt for conservatives, as well as the nation.

    • Ditto. I will never ever again as long as I live give any money to any politician for any reason no matter what they say. They’re all liars!……at best…actually they are so much worse. There are no words in the English Language to describe what kind of human garbage they really are. We’ve been sold down the river long ago. Both parties are responsible and they will not get away with what they’ve done

      We need a Constitution Party! All states need their own militias. I want my country back and I will never give up no matter what happens.

  2. Conniption Fitz says:

    It matters to me.

    The media and party have hidden all his lies, radical liberalism, corruption, ruthlessness in politics and business as effectively as the truth about Obama was hidden in 2008.

    Without a doubt, it has become plain that Romney’s governorship was the experimental lab for the Obama administration.

  3. I would like you to continue to document everything, so we have access to a written record when, if Romney is the nominee, and actually is elected, and he begins to disappoint and govern from the left, we can say “here it is, we tried to tell you and you refused to listen” and then at least we will have a record.

    Thank you!

  4. Newt outright called Romney a liar and later, ‘severely non-factual.’

    There are whole websites dedicated to Romney’s astounding mendacity…in speech, political campaigning, and in business. This is one of the best: http://amycontrada.com Mrs. Contrada has put together a non-venomous, intelligent and thorough run-down on Romney’s infractions and fallacies.

    Another famous chronicler of Romney’s duplicity is Ann Barnhardt. She has made numerous videos on his social radical acts, contradictions and flip/flops.

    She, like I, began the race as a supporter of Romney only to gradually realize he was a radical liberal pretending to be a conservative, a ruthless businessman who purloined public dollars in huge amounts for underwriting his governorship, Romneycare as well as his private ventures… and as a politician his tactics are commensurate with the Chicago style…as well as a false witness.

    • Clarification of last paragraph: *Amy Contrada* like I was once a supporter of Romney… until we learned better.

      Another person, more famous and distinguished recanted his endorsement of Mitt Romney in 2008 was Paul Weyrich, founder of the Heritage Foundation, Moral Majority and Christian Voice, came to deeply regret his 2008 endorsement of Romney:
      http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/paul-weyrich’s-penance
      http://www.politijim.com/2012/01/paul-weyrich-warns-conservatives-on.html

      Some of Romney’s consultants, like John Holdren, and Kevin Jennings, are not silly, but dangerous – moreover they are the same ones Obama has employed.
      Kevin Jennings – http://www.amycontrada.com/Kevin_Jennings.html
      John Holdren – http://www.wnd.com/2012/04/romney-adviser-radical-obama-czar/
      Here’s what former Romney adviser John Holdren believes would be “positive developments” in America to save the planet.
      “He also has considered as potentially positive developments forced abortion, mass involuntary sterilization, government limits on family size, a planetary government to crack down on population and the confiscation of infants.”
      1. Forced abortions.
      2. Mass involuntary sterilization.
      3. Government limits on family size.
      4. Planetary government to crackdown on population.
      5. Confiscation of infants.
      This fits a pattern for Romney that dates back to his vote for population-control candidate Paul Tsongas in the 1992 Democratic primary.
      I sure hope the Susan Anthony list and the National Right to Life groups who have precipitously endorsed him, have gotten a written legal contract with Flipper Romney and have a few million dollars in escrow if he breaks it. Romney’s word is worthless.

      And another:
      “The presentation also acknowledged the problematic view that Romney is a “phony” and a “political opportunist”; but that view is due at least in part to the fact that by any reasonable standard it’s true.The basic contours of his opportunism are by now fairly well known. During Romney’s unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate against Edward Kennedy in 1994, he espoused liberal beliefs on a number of social issues.A politically damaging clip from a campaign debate that year has surfaced, inevitably, on YouTube; it shows Romney posing as an advocate for gays, women, and minorities, and—in perhaps his gravest sacrilege—distancing himself from the political legacy of Ronald Reagan. Romney, Brent Bozell wrote the day after the debate in a piece for UPI, had “demonstrated very clearly . . . that he has more in common with liberal Democrats than he does with Conservatives.”
      Quote from the Harper’s article, “How to Fabricate a Conservative” – http://harpers.org/archive/2007/11/0081773

      And another article claims Romney has promised to be stealth candidate for LBGTQ groups – http://www.wnd.com/2011/03/276313/

  5. It feakin matters! Haven’t seen anyone keeping current, on-going cataloging of Romney’s continuous blatant lying. Not even a hashtag on twitter. Yes! Please compile complete list. It matters but haven’t seen it all in one place, tracking the lies. Would be powerful!! If ppl saw something like that, it SHOLD piss them off!

    Thank you for doing this…….please contiue?!?

    From Mass and can’t take the decades of lying any more…… his lies are blatant and easily proved false yet doesn’t matter to him and staff knowingly bald-face lie as well. He is a nasty, negative, cheaing and lying campaigner. Everyone around him in Boston since last failed run are same. They work hard for the uninformed voter’s vote ….spending unlimited amts of money lying to them. Knowingly lie. Doesn’t care about the small portion of the electorate that knows the truth. Unfortunately this works on the masses. It’s dirty way to get elected….by deceiving people. This is what Romney and entire campaign is built on deceivng ppl. Scary he won’t elaborate on any policies and when he does he flips, yet ppl will vote for him for president!?!? Scary americn electorate….

    Been in my face for decades. Get ready for the level of deceit during 2012. Like everything else, will make history……. money and nastiness. Will follow and tweet to @pondlizard way to send you any info.

  6. I’m praying every night and every morning that he is exposed for the *** he really is. There are a lot of facts about him that need to come to light and I’m praying that it is done very very soon.

  7. In the meantime, he needs to STOP holding his wife’s purse!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Who would vote for romney it looks like his lies are about to sink him.

  9. Jeremy Jenkisn says:

    How about this one …good old Mormons, always lying, always cheating, always, who the h3ll knows…here’s a good quote to show the power of the Mormon lie!!

    “I have a hard time with historians … because they idolize the truth. The truth is not uplifting; it destroys. Historians should tell only that part of the truth that is inspiring an uplifting.”

    -Apostle Boyd K. Packer as related by D. Michael Quin, “Pillars of My Faith,” Talk Delivered at Sunstone Symposium, Salt Lake City, August 19. 1994

    God bless the Mormon church, they truly are a gem of wisdom
