Welcome back, readers, for this second-to-last compilation of the lies told this month by Mitt Romney and his overly-eager-beaver stooge running mate, Paul RUIN. It is nearly harvest time, and this month’s crop of whoppers told by these pathological liars should not disappoint or surprise you, since these lies are nearly constant.  So roll up your cuffs and put your boots on as we will now descend into this month’s batch of bull!

1). Romney told a reporter recently that, when it comes to being accurate, his campaign has been  “absolutely spot on…anytime there’s been anything that’s been amiss, we correct or remove it.” This has certainly NOT been true when it comes to his assertion that President Obama is “raiding Medicare” and stealing $716 billion from it to finance Obamacare, a claim that has been debunked by many fact checkers!

2). In his ads, Romney keeps repeating the doctored footage which shows Obama quoting his opponent IN 2008, John McCain, saying “If we keep talking about the economy, we’ll lose!” Romney is dishonestly attempting to make it look like Obama is talking about his own administration NOW!

3). Paul RUIN recently addressed an AARP convention by saying, to a loud chorus of boos, that “The first step to a stronger Medicare is to repeal Obamacare, because it represents the worst of both worlds.” First of all, Ruin and Romney both want to abolish Medicare as we know it by turning it into a voucher system which would result in greatly increased costs to individual senior citizens. Secondly, abolishing Obamacare would doom Medicare to bankruptcy by the year 2016! Thirdly, Obama’s actions have strengthened Medicare and have made it solvent until at least 2024!

4). Romney said, to a group of wealthy donors, “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims…. my job is not to worry about these people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” This foolhardy statement completely ignores the FACT that a number of these people are millionaires like him who NEVER pay income taxes, while others are low-income retirees who are not required to pay income taxes, while even others are on disability, cannot work or pay taxes, much as they would undoubtedly like to! To assume, as Romney clearly does, that pro-Obama voters are all parasitic low lifes sucking the government’s teat dry is callous, ignorant, and a LIE! 

5). Paul RUIN said, “… And by the way, under President Clinton, we got welfare reform … which moved people from welfare to work, to get people out of poverty. President Obama is rolling back welfare reform.” This, of course, is a gross distortion of the TRUE facts! What Obama did, AT THE REQUEST OF SEVERAL REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS, was  to enable them to exempt their states from his decree, PROVIDED THAT THESE STATES DEMONSTRATED WORKABLE PLANS TO INCREASE THE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE GETTING OFF OF WELFARE TO GET JOBS. Ruin’s assertion is a LIE, and even Bill Vlinton has said so!

6). Romney claims that Obama’s proposed cuts in defense will adversely affect services for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet earlier this month, the White House proclaimed that virtually ALL of the Veterans Affairs Department budget would be EXEMPT if and when overall budget cuts go into effect January, 2013. Just another attempt at a fear-provoking LIE by Romney!

7). For a really comprehensive documentation of all the LIES told by Romney over a 30 WEEK period, go to You will be utterly amazed that this gigantic phony isn’t in jail!

I’ll be back on Halloween with the tragic last installment of the disgraceful lies this 2012 Republican presidential ticket has been telling all year. They are truly despicably reckless liars with absolutely no respect or regard for the truth, and they DO NOT DESERVE YOUR VOTE!

    Well, Jack, it appears that The People see their Pinocchio noses growing longer each campaign stop because the polls still favor Obama. Here in Ohio the President is up 9 points in the latest Columbus Dispatch poll- the poll that had them tied in August.

    The People who count [the swing voters] pay attention to all of this and have swung Obama’s way. They can see a phony a mile away and Ryan/Romney, no ROMNEY/Ryan are quite a pair of wooden-head shysters.

    • jackjodell53 says:

      Well put, mudrake! I have never seen a pair quite as one-sided as these two are. Let’s hope they drag down the entire rotten tractionary Republican Party with them!

    Good info and love the photoshop noses! I got to this site because I am trying to put together a “rom bot” image (an image of someone who is inadequately programmed and is/will be totally controlled by others). Like, in the case of the “bushbot.”

    • jackjodell53 says:

      Thanks, M. Johnson, and welcome aboard! I think you’ve found 2 good examples of people who are definitely “rom bot.”

  3. Jack, this really is a heavy-lift job. You’ve got true grit to keep doing it.

    What can you say about people who fall for No. 2? I’m sure Republicans have done focus group tests of that ad and determined there’s enough uninformed/misinformed or hopelessly gullible people abroad in the land to justifying the cost of running it. That’s as scary as it is depressing.

    • jackjodell53 says:

      I think if the GOP really cared about, or took their focus groups seriously, this very sorry pair would never have become nominated!

  4. Mugsy says:

    My own (popular) list of “Reasons to NOT vote for Romney” has grown to 209:

  5. The aspect that amazes me most about this is that once upon a time if politicians were caught BLATANTLY lying like these two do, they’re careers would be dead. Now, if you’re republican, it’s almost mandatory. They can’t run on their own accomplishments because there are none. So they lie. The internet is full of it today. Scott Brown, Eric Cantor, and these two are a daily does of lies.

    But hey, they’re all good Xtians. Right?

    • jackjodell53 says:

      Welcome aboard, Amanda, and thanks for your comment. The cirrent Republican Party is little more than a home for a pack of liars. It is also a den of thieves. These people, by and large, are NOT good Christians and in fact manipulate many who are into voting for them through their reliance on fear, lies, and deceit!

    If their pants aren’t on fire, it’s not for lack of LYING!
    Ryan is just a pathological liar—mouth open, lies tumble out; lies when the truth would be EASIER, etc.
    But Romney. Romney has signs of sociopathy. The bullying/torture of his gay classmate. Cruelty to animals. Cold, lacking in empathy. His lies serve his needs at any particular moment.
    Together—what a frightening duo. <<>>

    • jackjodell53 says:

      Welcome aboard, Celtgirl 60! Your observations are deep and very true, as far as I can tell. I have no doubt that Romney is a bully and a sociopath. I used to work for one such as he, so I can easily recognize the symptoms. Neither he NOR Ryan belong on the public payroll!
