Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Mitt Romney is a God-Damned Liar

Stumbled across this at Yahoo, but also got wind of it from the LW this morning.  

The title of the Yahoo article,  "Romney turns up the heat on Obama in New Hampshire," is horribly misleading. It should say, " Romney tells bare-faced lies about Obama in New Hampshire."

Democrats on Tuesday took issue with the part of the ad that quotes Obama saying, "If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose," pointing out that Romney took the quote out of context. Obama used the line in 2008, but he was talking about his opponent, Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, not his own campaign. What Obama did say at the time, was this: "Senator McCain's campaign actually said, and I quote, 'If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose.'" In response, the Democratic National Committee slammed Romney, calling him "a serial deceiver."

 Here is the HufPo link from the LW, correctly titled:  "Obama Campaign Blasts Romney's First TV Ad As 'Deceitful'"

Serial deceiver strikes again.  God-damned liar is more on the mark.
