Mitt Romney kept quiet last week when the subject was rape and God’s will. He remained silent the week before when the news was all about Illinois factory workers pleading with him to stop his alma mater Bain Capital from offshoring their jobs.

At no time this year did Mitt denounce Republican employers who threatened their workers if President Obama is re-elected or condemn repeated Republican legislative attempts to suppress Democratic votes.

Throughout the campaign, Mitt Romney confronted numerous George Washington moments — opportunities to establish an aura of honor. It takes moxie to tell fellow Republicans that voter suppression is un-American. Only a guy with strongly held principles would stand up to the firm he founded and insist they stop the morally bankrupt practice of offshoring jobs from profit-making American factories. At every turn, Romney chose the ignoble path. He kept his mouth shut rather than speak up for what’s right.

The Romney strategy has been to swamp us with so many flat-out lies that refuting them all would take a lifetime. And so they remain out there unrefuted. And if someone did spend that lifetime refuting each lie, there would of course be a dozen lifetimes worth more lies waiting.

Dave Johnson, What Does Romney’s Campaign of Lies Say About Our Country?

I recently found out that there’s a name for this tactic of overwhelming people with lies—it’s called, ‘the Gish Gallop’ and it’s a favorite tactic among creationists:

The Gish Gallop, named after creationist Duane Gish, is the debating technique of drowning the opponent in such a torrent of half-truths, lies, and straw-man arguments that the opponent cannot possibly answer every falsehood in real time. The term was coined by Eugenie Scott of the National Center for Science Education. Sam Harris describes the technique as “starting 10 fires in 10 minutes”

President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family.
Mitt Romney, in his RNC convention speech. America, this is your GOP in 2012: mocks climate change, wants to defund and privatize FEMA, and holds photo-op “charity” events to collect canned goods that the Red Cross says “hinders relief efforts.” Assholes. (via kathiek)

Mitt Romney’s “solution” to extremism against women? Promote the extremists. GottaLaff, thepoliticalcarnival.net

In 2011, Mitt Rom­ney was caught on cam­era rant­i­ng, “We should have a pro­hi­bi­tion on abor­tion… You’re try­ing to tell me that I’m not a faith­ful Mor­mon!”
He got a lit­tle testy when the radio host tried…

Forgot Joe Walsh!  He said that advances in medical care have made it so women don’t die during childbirth, therefore, no need to make an exception for “the life of the mother”.  Bitches love a guaranteed birth.

I wish my moderate Republican friends would simply be honest. They all say they’re voting for Romney because of his economic policies (tenuous and ill-formed as they are), and that they disagree with him on gay rights. Fine. Then look me in the eye, speak with a level clear voice, and say,” My taxes and take-home pay mean more than your fundamental civil rights, the sanctity of your marriage, your right to visit an ailing spouse in the hospital, your dignity as a citizen of this country, your healthcare, your right to inherit, the mental welfare and emotional well-being of your youth, and your very personhood.” It’s like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. You’re still complicit. You’re still perpetuating anti-gay legislation and cultural homophobia. You don’t get to walk away clean, because you say you “disagree” with your candidate on these issues.

Mitt Romney being homophobic back in the day.
Some things never change!

So Mormons just stand around making fun of people not like them?  How very Christian.
