Unpatriotic Mitt: “America’s Just Another Nation with a Flag”

Yes, that’s what he said:

He also called for raising taxes and denounced fiscal responsibility as “heartless and immoral.”

Well, not perzackly. Only in the sense that Barack Obama said “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.” Here’s the original Romney ad.

Sauce, goose, gander.

The Stepford Husband is really and truly a most appalling and shameless liar. And unapologetic: when his campaign was confronted with the dishonesty of showing Obama quoting McCain as if he were speaking in his own voice, Romney’s flack admitted the facts and justified the tactic.
