The Obama campaign remains stuck on the low road and deep in the mud, supplementing its campaign to paint Gov. Mitt Romney as dishonest with the charge that his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), is a liar too.
Obama communications wizard Stephanie Cutter, the gal with the sharpest elbows in Chicago, took to her email account this afternoon to blast out a message charging that Ryan was just as much lying filth as Romney.
Out on the campaign trail, Ryan has followed Mitt Romney’s lead — making a habit of misrepresenting or flat-out denying his unpopular, extreme positions, while distorting President Obama’s record. Both Romney and Ryan know that if they’re honest with the American people about their proposals and their records, it’ll hurt their chances to win the election.
Until he proves otherwise, we will continue to say that water is wet, the sky is blue, and Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are willing to say anything — even if that means wildly distorting known facts — to win this election.
Water is wet, the sky is blue, and Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are willing to say anything. Uhhhh boy.
The email also includes a video, “The 7 Habits of Highly Misleading People,” which, while a ranking little bit better on the cleverness scale, is itself highly misleading, focusing on things like Ryan’s misstatement about his marathon time.
At tonight’s debate, in fact, there will be only one proven liar on the stage. Gosh, maybe Stephanie and crew have forgotten this?
Actually, he was 76th in a class of 85, got one degree from college, and was unfortunately not “the outstanding student in the political science department.”
Biden has also been accused multiple times of plagiarism, admitting to having plagiarized an article in law school, though he said he didn’t understand the rules.
The rules are, write your own stuff. And don’t throw stones in glass houses.
