has romney not heard of “the google”

Meanwhile, remember headlines like this – ‘Mitt Romney’s $10 Million Fundraising Windfall’ – from May?

Yahoo (May 17): GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney raised a cool $10.25 million in a single day in Las Vegas, blowing away his competition and proving again he knows how to make money.

Today:

Think Progress: On May 16, with great fanfare, Mitt Romney announced that he “raised $10.25 million” in a single day. The announcement resulted in an avalanche of good press…..

….Romney himself touted the $10 million figure, saying, “That’s a terrific start. Actually it’s more than just a start – it really gives us the boost that we need at this early stage in my effort.”

….As it turns out, the campaign wasn’t telling the truth. Yesterday, the Los Angeles Time revealed Romney’s “sleight of hand”:

….the campaign not only didn’t raise $10 million in one day, they didn’t even collect $10 million dollars in pledges in one day. Instead, they “tallied” pledges they received “earlier.”

The Romney campaign purposely misled the press and the public for their own political advantage.

Thanks Proud

      Jovie, I saw this guy who worked for Reagen and GH Bush on Lawrence O’Donnell show Thursday night who said this very same thing. He talk about the 14th Amendment.

        I wish I had gotten the guy’s name. But see if you can get any info on O’Donnell show Thursday night, maybe there’s a video of this guy talking.

          I’ve got that guy’s name, it is Bruce Bartlett, he now works as a columnists for the Fiscal Times. As I said he word for Reagen, he was the Deputy Assistance Treasury Secretary. I just watched that video, I went to The Last Word Lawrence O’Donnell and I found what I was trying to tell you guys about. I wish I could email that video to this site, but I know nothing about doing that. Just look it up and see what this guy says about the President don’t really have to go through Congress to raise the debt ceiling.

      My take is that Congress needs to do their jobs.

      • July 1, 2011 at 5:28 pm

        Congress should have been done it’s job about alot of things, but it hasn’t. Everyone knows what need to be done. And why do the Republicans think that they should get their way about everything, everyone else have to sacrifice, the poor, the middle class, but the rich gets off scott free. This President has to do what he think is best for this economy., this country. Another depression is not what’s best. The Republicans are playing around, they are sabotaging this economy all for 2012. And it is a disgrace coming from someone who’s always talking about how much they love this country.

    I just cannot tolerate these grown folks who lie and know that what they say is a lie and they feel like they have every right to lie. When are we going to call them out, their words have no honor.

    And the ignorance – like POTUS operates in a vacuum. But then, the PL believe that as well….he’s not unattractive. I’d rather see him on the pages of a Sears catalogue – no authority and no voice. He can hold something a tool or something but (not like Weiner did)

    The circus music is an appropriate accompaniment. Maybe we could title this “The Smears of a Clown.”

        Good one Brian. “The Smears of a Clown.” These moronic candidates seem to have no idea how the internet, digital and technological age work. Whatever BS you say will come back to haunt you. So keep burying yourselves your royal dumbness and President Obama will keep flying high like a rocket launcher.

    What gets me Is, Mitt Is doing his darnest to make us believe him. He’s trying to con the American people Into believing his LIES. He wants the American people to vote for him and he’s lying like all get out. He needs our vote, and Is selling us LIES. He wants us to put him In the White house, because of his LIES. He Is a LIE. He FLIPS FLOPS and FLAPS. The People don’t know what this man will do or say next. He’s a WONDER 😦 😦 😦
