Romney - "You Lie!" Now, I'll Never Trust You Again

Mitt Romney: He ‘Lied’ About Individual Mandate.


A “Below 8% Unemployment Figure” Was Never Promised by Mr. Obama.

Interestingly, the information to disprove this claim exists on the 

Romney campaign Web site. Far from being anything that Obama 

said, the Romney campaign acknowledges that this 8 percent figure 

comes from a staff-written projection issued Jan. 9, 2009 — before 

Obama had taken the oath of office.

As Mitt Romney begins to pivot from the long Republican primary fight to a likely November duel with President Barack Obama, he is re-launching some of his most repeated -- and inaccurate -- attacks of the incumbent president.

  • He said that the Obama administration pledged to keep unemployment below 8 percent, a comment that we have previously rated Mostly False.
  • He said repealing the federal health care law would save money, a comment we twice have ruled False.
  • Romney said Obama apologized for America abroad, a comment we first ruled False but later called Pants on Fire as Romney recycled the line.
  • And Romney said  please apply what we did in Massachusetts nationally on an individual mandate.   “What does it say about a candidate who [is] faced with an op-ed that he wrote a few years ago, goes in front of people, and tells them something that he knows is not true, that the press knows is not true, and that the people in the audience knows is not true?” 

Romney - You Lie!  Now, I'll never trust you again.
