Part of thinking, is taking notice of half truths, fabricated stories and out right lies.
Here are 8 statements that you should think about.
1-“We have a president who I think is a nice guy, but he spent too much time at Harvard, perhaps.” — Romney spent one year more than Obama at Harvard while earning two degrees there. (April 5, 2012)
3- “And let me make this very clear — unlike President Obama, I will not raise taxes on the middle class.” Truth: Obama did not raise taxes on the middle class by any stretch of the imagination. The stimulus actually gave a tax cut to 95 percent of working families via a cut in payroll taxes. Republicans fought the extension of that cut when it expired. Meanwhile, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, Romney’s budget plan would raise taxes on the middle class, while cutting taxes on the wealthy. (Aug. 30, 2012)
5-“His $716 billion cut to Medicare to finance Obamacare will both hurt today’s seniors, and depress innovation — and jobs — in medicine.” Truth: Obama did not cut Medicare. (Aug. 30, 2012)
6- “I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.” (Jan. 9, 2012)
7-“In France, for instance, I’m told that marriage is now frequently contracted in seven-year terms where either party may move on when their term is up. How shallow and how different from the Europe of the past.” This policy does not exist, but seven-year marriage contracts are a plot point in the “Memories of Earth” science fiction series by Mormon author Orson Scott Card. (May 5, 2007)
And the worst one of the lot.
“I’m in this race because I care about Americans. I’m not concerned about the very poor — we have a safety net there.” (Feb. 2, 2012)
