He's a con man. A lying piece of **** used car salesman. Party ideology is the only reason why people are buying his ****. Do your own research and see that the only thing Mitt Romney really believes is that he deserves to be POTUS. Everything else is fluid. There is nothing there to rely on other than the accumulation of his own power and the protection of his own wealth.
Amen. So true. And anyone who's been paying attention knows this. Anyone watching the debate right now, who actually understands some of the issues, knows this. Romney has no substance and constantly lies and shape-shifts. He's shifted his foreign policy tonight, moderating from his stance during the primaries, just as he's done with his economic policy. He cannot be trusted.
From Sullivan's live blog of tonight's debate:
9.31 pm. Romney went very soft on Israel; some difference that "existed" - past tense - was merely "unfortunate." Watching this man shape-shift in front of your eyes is staggering. I'm fascinated by the purity of the cynicism. Seriously, I've never seen any human being up close like this - a mechanical, unstoppable machine of say anything, forget everything in the past, refuse to take any responsibility for anything he has said in the past, and just smile and golly-gee smile his way along. There's a a machine-like quality that chills me. I have no idea what he would do in office on anything. I believe nothing he says.
9.39 pm. "Where are you going to get the money?" The best question yet in all four debates. And Romney cannot answer. Because he has no answer. Notice how he keeps talking because he knows he's lying but has to keep up the pretense of actually having a sane fiscal policy. Which he doesn't.
9.42 pm. We have just seen the unraveling not of Obama's foreign policy - Romney backs it - but of Romney's mathematics. Romney's claim that he can balance the budget in eight years is another massive lie. Obama has just made a real advance in this debate. By ripping Romney's absurd proposals to build ships just because he thinks we should have more ships was devastating. Obama is exercizing mastery in this debate, and more clearly exposing the shallowness of Romney's grasp on the world.
