Flipping Mitt LIED about his father and MLK, Jr.

He frigging LIED about his father and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Remember his Meet the Press moment about his father and Martin Luther King, Jr.

"You can see what I believed and what my family believed by looking at our lives. My dad marched with Martin Luther King. My mom was a tireless crusader for civil rights."


This guy is gives snake oil salesman a bad name.

The actual article is here: Romney fields questions on King

Money Quote:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has said he watched his father, the late Michigan Gov. George Romney, in a 1960s civil rights march in Michigan with Martin Luther King Jr.

On Wednesday, Romney's campaign said his recollections of watching his father, an ardent civil rights supporter, march with King were meant to be figurative.

"He was speaking figuratively, not literally," Eric Fehrnstrom, spokesman for the Romney campaign, said of the candidate


If we're speaking FIGURATIVELY, then I can say I hung out with Harriet Tubman, Booker T, and W.E.B. DuBois.



Andrew Sullivan really explains it well:
There really is a character issue here. Romney is at almost Clinton levels of deception. He has become so used to trying to say what people want to hear that he has lost all touch with actual reality.

mitt romney has no scruples and no morals... he is the republican version of bill clinton, saying ANYTHING that he believes will get him elected. facts mean nothing. what is the definition of "is"?!? "marched with" doesn't mean literally marching with!

this post moved me to touch on this subject at plezWorld... thanks for bringing it to my attention!
