Mitt Romney is so full of shit!

How many lies can Romney pack into this one little 3-minute video clip? I think my favorite lie is that he's going to protect Social security and medicare by not raising taxes. That doesn't even make sense. Maybe you could say "I've figured out a way that we can protect SS and medicare without raising taxes," but you can't just say that not raising taxes is going to protect them. There's just no logic to it. It's like saying "I'm going to get all these home repairs done by not hiring any contractors."  You may well be able to get the repairs done without hiring anyone, maybe do them yourself, or con your friends into helping, but the act of not hiring contractors doesn't put a single shingle on the roof.

Also, there's the line about if you want someone who's going to raise taxes, you can vote for Barack Obama. Way to count on your audience being pig-ignorant enough to not know thatt Barack Obama has in fact NOT raised taxes. Pathetic.

Then there's this bit of classic douchebaggery:

Corporations are NOT people. They are made up of people. People own shares of the corporations, corporations are run by people, but corporations are not people. That's like saying that the NFL is a football team. And we know good and damn well whose pockets corporate profits end up in, and it ain't ours. Quit bullshitting us.

Looking forward to many, many more town halls like this one, where the raw coldness of the "corporations are people" attitude is exposed to regular folks. It's pretty hard to pull off comments like his and remain shiny.

Yeah, how exactly is she proposing to do that? Borrow Chritine O'Donnell's magic witch wand?
