“Tell One Lie, Make It Big, Make It Plausible, Keep It Simple” 3

That’s the short version of how to lie.

Otherwise, you can end up telling so many lies you cannot keep them straight.

Like this.

“For those that are here as the children of those who came here illegally, I want to make sure they have a permanent answer to what their status will be,” Romney said in the interview, “and I’ve indicated in my view that those who serve in the military and have advanced degrees would certainly qualify for that kind of permanent status.”

That would have represented a significant departure from Romney’s previous stance, reiterated as recently as last week in a major immigration speech to Latino group NALEO, that only military service should be considered as a valid path to permanent status. Romney has vocally opposed even allowing in-state tuition for college students who came to the country illegally. By contrast, Obama’s recent executive action waives deportations for young illegal immigrants who graduated from high school, earned a GED or served in the military.

    “He simply misspoke in this interview.”
    Didn’t you have an article from the Guardian last week pointing his other tactic, asserting he never said what the videotape record of him shows him saying? Someone should suggest a fun game to the press, drink a shot every time Mitt Romney lies.  First reporter to be arrested for DUI while following the Romney tour bus, wins.

    When you tell so many fibs, it becomes difficult to keep them organized.
