    All he has to do is quote Obama.

    Mitt is juicing on that pre-eminent drug of the right today: hypocrisy.

    Once you pass the ChickenHawk threshold, all the other lying comes naturally:
    -
    Oh, I wish I could have been with those guys in Viet Nam.
    -
    Sorry if I offended PETA people because my dog likes fresh air.
    -
    I would never interfere with a woman’s right to choose.
    -
    I didn’t raise any taxes in Massachusetts, those were all fees.
    -
    Yes, I lived in Massachusetts the whole entire time I was in Utah saving the Olympics
    -
    No, I had nothing to do with Bain Capital while I was CEO, president and only stockholder — I retired retroactively.

    The President’s strategy for the next debate is clear. Which is a problem, because now the Romney-campaign can adapt to that. Don’t be surprised should he appear to the debate dressed in a gorilla-costume, it’s all part of the plan to bamboozle us with his BS. Whatever it takes to win…

    It’s only a lie if you decide not to believe it. Or so I’m told.

    In a famous October 2004 New York Times article on the Bush administration, journalist Ron Suskind described his encounter with a “senior adviser” to the president: The aide said that guys like me were “in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. “That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. “We’re an empire now and when we act, we create our own reality.” (Chris Mooney, The Republican War On Science, p. 243)
    This cartoon nails it. The dems might not be anything special, but the right believes that “wishing makes it so.” They are completely dissociated from reality, whether it concerns the female body (Akin), creationism (Braun; a number of regular commentators in these comics), voodoo economics (giving all the money to the rich does good for everyone!), global warming (Inhofe), religion (not a single one of the lying hypocritical bastards has sold everything he has and given it to the poor—see Luke 14.33), and these are just the best known examples. They could be multiplied ad infinitum. In other words, Matt Davies got it right—they are just making stuff up (know any Kenyan muslim socialists?), pandering to the lowest of the lowest common denominators, in an effort to seize power. For what? Endless war (not only in Asia, but also against gays, women, blacks, Hispanics, etc., as well as the environment), and stuffing their pockets with cash from the fossil fuel companies.
    Two more from Mooney: “When politicians use bad science to justify themselves, rather than good science to make up their minds, we can safely assume that wrongheaded and even disastrous decisions lie ahead” and “Such flagrant misrepresentation goes far beyond mere dishonesty. It demonstrates a gross disregard for the welfare of the American public, whom Bush represents, and for the population of the entire globe, whose fate depends in large measure on the behavior of the American behemoth.”

    These aren’t the candidates you want. We can continue with what we are doing. You don’t need to look at anything but what we tell you. Civilization, ancient and wicked. Oops… relapsed into Conan from Star Wars. It happens.

    Top 10 lies by Biden during the debate:

    Fact Check: Top Ten Worst Lies by Joe Biden in VP Debate

    The Top Ten Biden Debate Lies

    Fact Checking Biden: 10 Lies And Counting

    My personal favorites?


    #5: “I hear that Sarah Palin death panel stuff during every Vice-Presidential Debate,” Except there was no “death panel stuff” during the last Vice-Presidential Debate, because Obamacare hadn’t been proposed yet.

    #4: “The president has met with Bibi [Netanyahu] a dozen times….This is a bunch of stuff.” If it were me I would have brought up Obama on tape saying “you think you have it bad, I have to deal with him every day” after Sarkozy told Obama he thinks Netanyahu is a liar.

    #3: “‘We’ didn’t know about the Benghazi attacks weren’t because of some BS video”“. ”http://www.gop.com/news/research/fact-checking-biden-10-lies-and-counting/“>Total BS . Not only did they know, they’re now throwing the Security community and State Department under the bus. Hillary won’t be the fall guy. Expect Bill to stop campaigning for Obama soon.


    (Blaming the Benghazi attack on budget cuts) “The congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for.” (a)Ryan’s proposal, which called for a 19% overall decrease in non-defense discretionary spending, does not even mention embassy security—the Obama campaign merely made up that number by applying 19% across the board.
    (b) I fault Ryan for not screaming (a la Biden) ”I know you’ve been sequestered for 6 days, but didn’t they brief you on the hearings on Capital Hill yesterday?!?! " REP. DANA ROHRABACHER (R-CA): “It has been suggested the budget cuts are responsible for lack of security in Benghazi, and I’d like to ask Ms. Lamb, you made this decision personally, was there any budget consideration and lack of budget that led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?” STATE DEPARTMENT DEPUTY ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS CHARLENE LAMB: “No, sir.”

    My #2: REP. RYAN: You can cut tax rates by 20 percent and still preserve these important preferences for middle-class taxpayersVICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: Not mathematically possible. REP. RYAN: It is mathematically possible. It’s been done before. It’s precisely what we’re proposing. VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: (Chuckles.) It has never been done before. REP. RYAN:It’s been done a couple of times, actually. VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: It has never been done before. REP. RYAN: Jack Kennedy lowered tax rates, increased growth. Ronald Reagan — VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: Oh, now you’re Jack Kennedy. [Forced and lame comment, in my view] REP. RYAN: Ronald Reagan — (laughter) — (chuckles) — Republicans and DemocratsVICE PRESIDENT BIDEN [interrupting, again]: This is amazing.

    Amazing, in fact, might be a better description of Biden’s duplicitousness on the question of tax reform. While obviously no one has enacted a plan exactly like Romney’s before, the general principles have been applied twice, with John F. Kennedy’s proposed tax reforms that were later implemented slightly differently, and Ronald Reagan’s 1986 tax reform, both of which cut marginal rates significantly and eliminated deductions for the wealthy, while gathering essentially the same revenue (technically the ’86 bill itself cost $8.9 billion in revenue over the first two years, but overall tax revenues increased substantially in its wake). But twice Biden claims that such tax reform “has never been done before.” But he should know better — he actually voted to do it, 28 years ago. On September 27, 1986, Biden voted (along with 32 other Democrats) to enact H.R. 3838, Ronald Reagan’s tax reform, which lowered rates, eliminated deductions, and barely affected the deficit.

    And my personal #1 Biden Lie:

    "By the way, they talk about this great recession like it fell out of the sky–like, ‘Oh my goodness, where did it come from? It came from this man voting to put two wars on a credit card, at the same time, put a prescription drug plan on the credit card, a trillion dollar tax cut for the very wealthy. I was there, I voted against them. I said, no, we can’t afford that.”

    Then Sen. Biden voted for the Afghanistan resolution on Sept. 14, 2001 and on Oct. 11, 2002, Biden voted for a resolution authorizing unilateral military action in Iraq.

    Is Biden so arrogant he didn’t think they’d actually look at his voting record?

    From Medicare to the draw down in Iraq, to his claims about Generals supporting his timetable in Afghanistan, to his goofy gaffawing when Ryan correctly quoted Obama claimed his Porkulus would have unemployment under 6% by now, I don’t think I heard one truthful word uttered out of his toothy mouth.

    That’s why the uber-left eats this s*** up.
