The Face Of A Liar

PATHOLOGICALLY MENDACIOUS:

I am just total­ly and com­pre­hen­sive­ly stunned and mor­ti­fied at the ease and alacrity with which the Republican Candidate for President, Mitt Romney lies out­right and straight-faced.

Here’s is what Romney said regard­ing the Palestinian issue.

You hope for some degree of sta­bil­i­ty, but you rec­og­nize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem.and we kick the ball down the field and hope that ulti­mate­ly, some­how, some­thing will hap­pen and resolve it,” Romney said.http://​cam​paign​trail​re​port​.com/​2​0​1​2​/​0​9​/​1​8​/​m​o​r​e​-​o​u​t​r​a​g​e​o​u​s​l​y​-​o​u​t​r​a​g​e​o​u​s​-​q​u​o​t​e​s​-​f​r​o​m​-​c​a​n​d​i​d​-​r​o​m​n​e​y​-​v​i​deo

Here’s what Mitt Romney said on Monday October 8th on the very same sub­ject.

I will recom­mit America to the goal of a demo­c­ra­t­ic, pros­per­ous Palestinian state liv­ing side by side in peace and secu­ri­ty with the Jewish state of Israel. On this vital issue, the pres­i­dent has failed, and what should be a nego­ti­a­tion process has devolved into a series of heat­ed dis­putes at the United Nations. In this old con­flict, as in every chal­lenge we face in the Middle East, only a new pres­i­dent will bring the chance to begin anew.

On Defense cuts:

I will roll back President Obama’s deep and arbi­trary cuts to our nation­al defense that would dev­as­tate our mil­i­tary.”

Here’s the truth:

Defense cuts do not belong to Obama alone but also to con­gres­sion­al Republicans, includ­ing his vice pres­i­den­tial run­ning mate, Rep. Paul Ryan. The first round of cuts in pro­ject­ed defense spend­ing is the result of a bipar­ti­san deal in August 2011 between Congress and the White House to wres­tle down the deficit. Unless a new bud­get deal is reached in time, addi­tion­al spend­ing cuts will begin in January across gov­ern­ment, and the cost to the Pentagon would be $500 bil­lion over a decade. Lawmakers are work­ing to avoid that. Separately, Obama wants to slow the growth of mil­i­tary spend­ing, now that the war in Iraq is end­ed and the war in Afghanistan is draw­ing to a close. The Pentagon’s bud­get, includ­ing war costs, is $670 bil­lion this year, or about 18 per­cent of total fed­er­al spend­ing. Even set­ting aside the costs of the wars, mil­i­tary spend­ing has more than dou­bled since 2001.(mprnews)

On Trade, Romney said:

The pres­i­dent has not signed one new free trade agree­ment in the past four years.”

The Truth:

Obama com­plet­ed some big ones, over­com­ing oppo­si­tion from fel­low Democrats to do so. After tak­ing office, he revived a free-trade deal with Colombia that had been nego­ti­at­ed by his Republican pre­de­ces­sor but left to lan­guish with­out con­gres­sion­al approval and sought sim­i­lar progress with South Korean and Panamanian free-trade pacts. The pres­i­dent delayed sub­mit­ting the three deals to Congress while he tried to pla­cate Democrats who opposed some of the terms, but final­ly sub­mit­ted them in 2011, and Congress approved them.

Romney

On issue after issue not only has this guy tak­en mul­ti­ple posi­tions, depend­ing on what’s con­ve­nient at a giv­en time , he has unashamed lied with a straight face. Republicans are on tele­vi­sion extolling the virtues of Mitt Romney, they paint him as an upright fam­i­ly man who gives gen­er­ous­ly to his church.

The hypocrisy of these plat­i­tudes, is the obvi­ous fact that nei­ther Romney nor his pro­tag­o­nists under­stand that lying is a sin. Lying is a despi­ca­ble affront to God, he charges in his holy com­mand­ments not to bear false wit­ness, yet Romney lies like we’ve nev­er seen a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date in our life­time. I do con­fess that lies are one of my great­est pet peeves, as a child my grand par­ents told me Quote: “He who hides the wrong he did, does the wrong thing still” That quote helped to shape my life, it cre­at­ed in me a dis­dain not just for for the act of lying (the verb) but for the per­son who lies, (the noun).

Trust is an inte­gral part of the human char­ac­ter, it is one of the best barom­e­ter of a per­son­’s worth or depend­abil­i­ty, it tells us deep down how we may relate to that indi­vid­ual. Mitt Romney has demon­strat­ed time and again that his words mean noth­ing.

It is shock­ing when some­one like Newt Gingrich can cred­i­bly and irrefutable indict Romney’s cred­i­bil­i­ty. Throughout the Republican pri­maries Gingrich and Texas Governor Rick Perry repeat­ed­ly blast­ed Romney for lack of char­ac­ter, and accused him of will­ing to say and do any­thing to get elect­ed.

Objective observers to this elec­tion cycle will read­i­ly attest to the fact that Romney has shown zero char­ac­ter as it relates to the most vile racial ele­ments with­in his par­ty. He has shown that he will also say any­thing he deems nec­es­sary to any­one who will sup­port him. He has repeat­ed­ly said that he need 50% plus one to win the elec­tion so that make it impos­si­ble to rep­ri­mand any­one, irre­spec­tive of how vile that sup­port­er is.

The hypocrisy of Romney is that every­where he goes he yells to whomev­er will lis­ten , (froth­ing at the mouth), that the pres­i­dent is respon­si­ble for every­thing that hap­pens in his admin­is­tra­tion, prob­a­bly cor­rect­ly so. but when he is required to assume lead­er­ship for those with­in his par­ty and their rep­re­hen­si­ble and despi­ca­ble behav­ior, Romney claims he can­not be respon­si­ble for the actions of every­one.

This is a fun­da­men­tal and impor­tant char­ac­ter flaw in a man who wants to be pres­i­dent. A pres­i­dent of the United States must have char­ac­ter, not just for their sup­port­ers, but to rep­re­sent America at home and also abroad.

World lead­ers are not impressed with Romney, they have no idea what he stands for, not just on the lies he speaks, but on his utter­ances to the Palestinians, the Spaniards, the Chinese, the Russians, Muslims, Cubans, Venezuelans, and most oth­er peo­ple not white Anglo-Saxons.

This is not just a ques­tion of char­ac­ter or lack there­of, this is a dan­ger­ous pos­ture, eeri­ly rem­i­nis­cent of the pos­ture adopt­ed by the war­mon­ger­ing neo-cons who made up the Bush Administration, who forced out more sane play­ers like Colin Powell.

The most shock­ing thing about the Romney pres­i­den­tial run is that it is exact­ly a return to the Bush/​Chaney years. The only dif­fer­ence is that it will be worse, if any­one in their right mind believe that the Administration which almost wrecked America will restore pros­per­i­ty to their lives, they are dead wrong.

Romney has made no bones about what he wants to do with America, build up the Military,(not take care of vet­er­ans) Building his 15 new naval ves­sels each year, they will explode the deficit and fur­ther fat­ten the fat-cats who are in the mil­i­tary indus­tri­al com­plex.

His sign­ing on to the uncon­scionable Paul Ryan Budget should be warn­ing enough that those who are not rich. well tough luck.

Romney’s bel­li­cose war­mon­ger­ing and unequiv­o­cal sup­port for Israel and it’s equal­ly bel­liger­ent war-mon­ger Prime Minister , Benjamin Netanyahu should be a wake up call to all play­ers on this plan­et who care about world peace. This guy ‚who nev­er served a day in the Military, and did not let even one of his 5 sons, do a sin­gle day of mil­i­tary ser­vice, is hell-bent on start­ing world war 3.

It is same of all the oth­ers, From Dick Cheney, John Bolton, Carl Rove, Richard Perle ‚Don Señor, Paul Wolfowitz,or any of the neo-cons who are buried deep with­in the recess­es of the Beltway Republican lex­i­con, they are mighty tough as long as they do not have to fight the war.

Is this what America wants? Pundits and prog­nos­ti­ca­tors argue that America is war-weary, not look­ing for anoth­er con­flict , if this is true why is this pres­i­den­tial race close?

Is half of America’s hatred for the black race so strong that it is will­ing to destroy America by entrust­ing it to a total emp­ty suit ? Any emp­ty suit who may have acquired two advanced degree from one of America’s most pres­ti­gious schools, but has shown that oth­er than the for­mal school­ing, he is lit­tle more than well.….…. an emp­ty suit.
