Romney: "The First Victim Of An Obama Campaign Is The Truth": Do You Trust President Obama?

The 2012 election season has shifted from primary politics to the general election. Summer has nearly ended and the Olympics finished. The media will now set their sites on the candidates. General elections generally sours the public as they suffer the endless cycles of attack ads.

Politicians and their campaign managers know that negative ads work. Nobody took President Clinton seriously when he promised to end the politics of personal destruction -- then began destroying the reputation of special prosecutor Kenneth Starr, victim Paula Jones and witnesses Linda Tripp and Monica Lewinsky.

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney accused President Obama of sacrificing the truth for a political victory in 2012. Romney said, "It seems that the first victim of an Obama campaign is the truth. It has been sad and disappointing." Romney said this in response to the attack ads against him claiming that Romney would raise taxes. Romney finished with, "We're going to get this economy going, and Mr. President stop saying something that's not the truth."

REALCLEARPOLITICS.COM reports:
Question: Thank you, Governor. When my son's boss asked why he wanted the day off, he said I get a chance to see Romney and Ryan. He said, 'You mean that guy that wants to raise taxes.' So what are you going to do to combat the lies that the leftists are telling about you?

Romney: Thank you. It seems that the first victim of an Obama campaign is the truth. It has been sad and disappointing. Frankly, you know, when I became the presumptive nominee, the president called me and congratulated me on becoming the presumptive nominee, and said that America deserves an honest debate about the future course of the country, and I agreed.

I'm waiting to hear him begin that, because all we've heard so far is one attack after the other. And frankly they're typically not honest. There may be one in there that is. I keep looking for it, but it's been a disappointment.

    Its called "WE THE PEOPLE" and if the people are not knowledgable about the history of the US Constitution and what the Framers went thru to get us a REPUBLIC, and do not put these politicians in their place they will walk all over us. If they donot know what the first 6 principles of the first 155 words of the US Constitution and they have no respect in life, then they are not going to protect your life liberty or your property, because when anyone thinks that human is not important in the beginnig they are not going to get anything else right!

    He lost that kind of trust BEFORE he was put in place by a bunch of morons. Why? Because I did my homework on the man, I didnt just look at the color of his skin and get all the white guilt or tingley feeling in my legs. I got myself informed.

    I love you--somebody who actually checked out the 2008 candidates before marching into the ballot box in a hypnotized stupor! I did the same, but it sickens me that so many people in this country did not do their homework, and just voted for who Oprah told them to, like good little sheep.

    Are they sheep because they didn't vote for the bigots you wanted them to vote for? Just asking?

    Now you see, people can tell immediately you're a liberal because you come right out and call someone a bigot just because YOU don't happen to agree with them--that's right out of the DNC's notebook! I don't refer to the people who voted for Obama as sheep because they didn't vote the way I would have preferred. I call them sheep because they voted for a person who nobody knew anything about, a man who paid millions to have his entire life's records sealed, a man who had next to no credentials making him capable or worthy of holding the highest office of the land. Because the media never asked him ONE hardball question throughout his entire campaign, because people worshiped him EVEN WHEN he attacked and smeared a fellow democrat, the very well respected Hillary Clinton. SOMETHING JUST WASN'T RIGHT ABOUT ALL THAT! My "spidey sense" was tingling all over that this guy was not right, not qualified, and that the cover-up around him was downright sinister. After more than 3 1/2 years of seeing what Obama has done to the American people and our country, I can safely say my sense of warning that this man was wrong for America was very well-founded.

    Are you serious? Man you got to be a nut job! I lived in Mass. I have heard enough from Romney and Ryan. You still have two millionaires who want to give themselves a huge tax cut by hiking the taxes on the middle class and the poor. Hell you must have as much money as I do to support that. If you do then you can survive Romney if you don't then you are the fool. It amaze me that so many poor and middle class people want to accept that tax hike just because they promise jobs they still haven't told you how they plan to get there. I am lucky that I have done well and my family and I won't have to worry, however being a christian I do worry about those less off than I. I do believe that Obama will win again. There can't be that many silly poor or middle class people who want to go through another George Bush type recession!

    DON'T TRUST OBAMA OR BARRY I THINK THE OBAMA LOVER'S ARE PEOPLE THAT AFRAID THEY WILL BE CALLED RACIST. THATS WHY MANY WANT HIM TO STAY IN OFFICE EVEN WHEN THEY KNOW THEIR GRANDCHILDREN WILL HAVE NO FUTURE WHEN HE'S SPENT ALL THE MONEY..... People know this and don't give a crap maybe when they get in the voting booth they'll beable to really vote with their HEART...
