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.
One response to “Republicans Admit They’re Going To Lie During Campaign”
Your bad back must be acting up again and making you more cranky than usual. I truly enjoy your blog. My intention was only to point out what I felt was totally unique about your blog. No offence was intended about your political inclinations and/or rants. I simply prefer hearing about your adventures and experiences in Panama. Simmer down – of course it’s your blog (I can’t bold and/or underline here like you can) and furthermore I have no intentions of not coming back until November! (However, the point could be made that the only reason to blog is to have happy readers and the customer is always right!)
In regards to one of your recent posts about your neighbor’s nice gift of a coconut: One of my best friends lives in the Florida Keys and he has about 60, 50 feet or higher coconut palm trees all around his house and driveway. They all look beautiful, but …
It was very interesting for me to discover that they are considered so lethal that there’s an entire mini-industry in the Keys (and all around south Florida) that exists solely to de-nut coconut palms for wealthy folks. They can weigh 10-12 pounds – and falling from 50 feet up they can kill you. My buddy got hit with one and it broke his collar bone. And after one of his grandkids almost got beaned, he got religion and gladly pays the $1,000 or so, each and every year to have his trees castrated early on in their growing phase. (Or is it more correct to say gelded when referring to palm trees?)
One year he actually employed a guy that had a trained monkey that could climb up and actually twist the nuts off the tree. I swear I’m not making this up! (Reminds me of both my ex-wives – how about you?)
Speaking of which, you have never introduced us to your Panamanian significant other and/or discussed your romantic adventures down there. Are you totally immune to the charms of the Panamanian women, or have you been burned for the last time and hung up your guns?
Is it your current opinion that 1 can live more cheaply than two?
Caught 18 crabs in the traps last night. Have experimented and proved to my complete satisfaction that a wooden hammer is much better for cracking them open than my trusty Stanley. Any more crabbing advice would be welcome.
