It’s My Lie, And I’m Sticking With It — PLEASE SHARE

Mitt Romney castigated the Obama Administration for being complicit in a decision by Chrysler to move all production of Jeeps to China.  This, of course, is a lie.

Statement from Chrysler:

“Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China. It’s simply reviewing the opportunities to return Jeep output to China for the world’s largest auto market. U.S. Jeep assembly lines will continue to stay in operation. A careful and unbiased reading of the Bloomberg take would have saved unnecessary fantasies and extravagant comments.”

But apparently, the Romney campaign refuses to let go of this bone.

This should be Mitt’s campaign song; probably is:


During the second Presidential Debate, Mitt Romney explained that when he was elected Governor of Massachusetts, he was so upset that his putative cabinet did not have any females that he sought out women’s groups to send him qualified candidates.  In response to his heartfelt request, these groups sent him “binders full of women.”


There are, in fact, two lies; a compounding that defies logic.

1.  Romney did not have an epiphany on assuming office that his cabinet was bereft of women.

2. Romney did not ask for binder full of women, as his campaign had already reached an agreement with Massachusetts Government Appointments Project (MassGAP) prior to the election and had signed a pledge that they would work with MassGAP to appoint qualified women.

The fundamental problem with being a chronic liar is that you have to keep the lies straight.  Perhaps the governor could use these handy file binders.
