Republicans Admit They’re Going To Lie During Campaign

Mitt Romney’s campaign said on Tuesday that its ads attacking President Obama’s waiver policy on welfare have been its most effective to date. And while the spots have been roundly criticized as lacking any factual basis, the campaign said it didn’t really care. “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers,” Romney pollster Neil Newhouse said at a panel organized by ABC News. This is a different standard than the one Romney himself has held up for the election-season ad wars. Reacting to attacks by a pro-Obama super PAC, Romney recently told a radio station that “in the past, when people pointed out that something was inaccurate, why, campaigns pulled the ad.” The presumptive nominee’s top communications hand, Eric Ferhnstrom, was quick to make the case that the two instances were not comparable.

At least they’re honest about being dishonest…

And for those of you who object to my putting political posts on MY blog then I advise you to come back after the election in November.
