Mitt Romney on Monday accused President Barack Obama of running a “campaign based on falsehood and dishonesty,” while brushing aside suggestions from anxious conservatives to release more than two years of tax returns.
“A campaign based on falsehood and dishonesty does not have long legs,” Romney said on “Fox and Friends,” later adding: “The president only has one thing going, and that is constant attacks on me. They’re dishonest. They’re misdirected. And I think the American people recognize that kind of politics as something of the past. It may work in Chicago, but it’s not going to work across America.”
“If we want to talk about transparency, the real issue is, why has this president used his presidential power and executive privilege to keep the information about the Fast and Furious program from being explained to the American people?” the former Massachusetts governor said, referring to Obama’s assertion of executive privilege over documents related to the disastrous “gun-walking” operation.
2008 gave us “birthers” and “Trig-truthers.” Now 2012 has produced the “Bainers.” These are the people (are progs people?) that keep insisting despite all evidence to the contrary that Mitt Romney is lying about when he left Bain Capital.
They are not arguing in good faith. They know that Mitt Romney was in Utah organizing the 2002 Winter Olympics and was not running Bain between 1999 and 2001. They don’t care. Do not waste your time debating with them. Make your points and move on with your life.
Bainers are Obots, and arguing with Obots is like arguing with trolls. Actually it IS arguing with trolls, and if you argue with a troll the troll wins.
