Of course, no one really knows what Mitt Romney believes, because he has more skins than a chameleon.
But, ya know, he makes stuff up real good. From Fact Check dot org:
- It claims McCain “voted to allow illegals to collect Social Security.” That’s untrue. Nobody who is in the country illegally could be paid any Social Security benefits under McCain’s immigration bill.
- It implies McCain supported “amnesty” for illegal immigrants. That word isn’t accurate. Illegal immigrants wouldn’t have received a blanket pardon under McCain’s bill. Instead, they would have had to pay thousands in penalties and fees to gain legal status. In fact, in 2005 Romney called McCainâ€™s proposal â€œreasonableâ€ and said it wasnâ€™t amnesty.
- The ad says Romney “cut taxes” in Massachusetts. While he did cut some taxes â€“ for example, enacting business tax credits â€“ tax rates remained unchanged. Plus, Romney raised state revenues by hundreds of millions of dollars per year by increasing fees and closing corporate tax loopholes.
What an empty suit. Romney really doesn’t seem to believe in anything except that he deserves to be president. And he seems willing to believe in anything that would further that goal.
Because he looks good in a suit, I guess.
Remember, he used to be a consultant.
What is a consultant?
Someone who borrows your watch, tells you what time it is, and keeps the watch.
(And I’m no fan of McCain either, but, really, there’s plenty of facts to attack him with. No reason to make stuff up. But, then again, making stuff up is the Republican way.)
