MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night blasted former Massachussetts Gov. Mitt Romney, accusing the Republican presidential candidate of being a serial liar.
“This is hard to talk about in the day to day news context, because there are such low expectations for politicians being truthful and because the word ‘lie’ is both under-used and over-used to the point where everybody is a little touchy about it,” she said.
“But the degree to which Mr. Romney lies, all the time, about all sorts of stuff, and doesn’t seem to care when he gets caught is maybe the single most notable thing about his campaign.”
Maddow said the Romney lied about Obama making the economy worse and then lied about saying Obama made it worse, lied about his professional background, lied about his health care policy in Massachusetts, lied about the cost of Obama’s health care reform, lied about the federal deficit, lied about Obama cutting Medicare benefits, lied about Obama raising corporate tax rates, lied about Obama’s trade deals, and even lied about the national anthem.
“He lies all the time, really easily,” she continued. “He says things that are not true with unnerving frequency.”
