Did Mitt Romney Read from Karl Rove’s Election Playbook?
- Make anything up you want about your opponent because most people never realize that what you say is completely false.
- Attack your opponent to deflect from your own weaknesses. Confuse voters by blaming your opponent for things you actually do yourself.
Rachel Maddow reported that Mitt Romney continues to outright lie about many things. Where is the major media asking follow-up questions?
E. J. Dionne, Washington Post Columnist, says the media should “call out the lie. That is exactly what media are supposed to do.”
E. J. Dionne, Washington Post Reporter said,
“Our function has to be to try to create a level playing field where the conversation is based on fact. People can have all kinds of opinions, but candidates aren’t supposed to lie. And Romney I think is in really dangerous territory, because I think we have heard the word “lie” used about him more than I have heard used about a candidate in a very long time.”
