Will Mitt Romney Really End His Tax Deduction for Mormon Tithing?

As voters by now are hopefully aware, Mitt Romney has refused to name a single tax break he would end to help offset the $5 trillion, 10-year cost of his tax cut windfall for the wealthy. But the Republican has been very clear about which of the $1 trillion in annual tax deductions and loopholes […]

The Romney Clan Parrots Limbaugh's Racist Obama Slurs

When Rush Limbaugh slandered Sandra Fluke as a "slut" back in March, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said only, "It's not the language I would have used." But when it comes to Limbaugh's repeated slurs of the first African-American President of the United States as a "little boy" and a "man-child," that's pretty much the […]

Ryan Blames Obama for Delphi Layoffs Romney Cashed In On

While the Romney campaign continues to push its lie about Jeep shifting jobs from Ohio to China, Paul Ryan has been busy trying to hoodwink Buckeye voters with a tall tale about another company saved by President Obama's rescue of the U.S. industry. Recycling a charge Team Romney first introduced in May, the GOP's number […]

After Bashing Auto Workers, Romney Asks for Their Votes

In an effort to win over auto workers in Ohio and across the Midwest, Team Romney this week unveiled a jaw-droppingly fraudulent ad rewriting Mitt's opposition to the federal bailout that saved the entire industry. But largely overlooked in the shocked response to his bogus claims about Jeep shipping U.S. jobs to China has been […]

Mitt Romney's Auto Neurotic Prevarication

It's as if Mitt Romney simply can't help himself. Gripped by an irresistible obsession to become President of the United States, Romney will lie to voters on almost any issue, large or small. And on no point is Romney's compulsion to fabricate more pathological than on President Obama's successful rescue of the American auto industry. […]

Romney 's Closing Argument is "Obama Made Economy Worse" Lie

So Mitt Romney has decided to end his presidential campaign the same way he started it. That is, by lying. During what his aides touted as a "major address" in Iowa Friday, Governor Romney charged that while President Obama "inherited a troubled economy," he "made the problem worse." That's the same long-debunked myth Romney used […]

The Romney Recession vs. the Obama Boom

After campaigning for months on the long ago debunked slander that President Obama "made the economy worse," Mitt Romney is now promising voters a "big change" over the next four years. President Romney's change would be big, all right, just not in the way he is pledging. That's because while a growing number of analysts […]

Top Romney Economic Adviser: "Rich Are Taxed Enough"

Back in June, Mitt Romney's top economic adviser Glenn Hubbard caused a stir when he took his partisan politics beyond the water's edge and onto the op-ed page of a German newspaper. Now, the man the New York Times labeled Romney's "go-to economist" has uttered something far more appalling, if entirely predictable. "The rich," Hubbard […]

GOP Still Mocking the "Health of the Mother"

If for nothing else, you have to give the 2008 and 2012 GOP tickets for getting their lines straight. On Thursday, John McCain rejoined Mitt Romney in support of embattled Indiana Republican Senate hopeful Richard Mourdock. That McCain would come around after accepting Mourdock's "apology" for proclaiming rape-induced pregnancies gifts from God should come as […]

The Economist Pounds Romney on the Economy

In the next several days, The Economist newsmagazine will make its 2012 presidential endorsement. Despite its mantra on free trade and free markets, in the past that icon of international business and politics has endorsed both Democrats (Bill Clinton in 1992, John Kerry in 2004) and Republicans (Ronald Reagan in 1980, Bob Dole in 1996 […]
