President Obama's a Liar, So Say So, Governor Romney
"Now that Obama's calling him a liar, tax cheat & felon, maybe Romney will finally stop calling O a 'nice guy.'"
Republican United States Senate candidate Josh Mandel of Ohio called his opponent, ACORN favorite Senator Sherrod Brown, a liar.
Speak truly and plainly.
Lying in the name of civility is still lying.
Luke Johnson, in "Obama: Mitt Romney Is A 'Bulls****er'" (www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/25/obama-romney-bullshitter_n_2018079.html):
"President Barack Obama used a profanity to describe GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney in a Rolling Stone interview, according to an excerpt released Thursday by Politico's Mike Allen.
"Douglas Brinkley, who wrote the Rolling Stone article, recalled an exchange with Obama and Rolling Stone executive editor Eric Bates, who said that his daughter told him to tell the president, 'You can do it.'
"Obama reportedly grinned. 'You know, kids have good instincts,' he said. 'They look at the other guy and say, "Well, that's a bulls****er, I can tell."'
"White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer was asked about the comment Thursday in Richmond, Va., and said the issue was about Romney's 'trust.' He said people should 'not be distracted by the word' but to 'focus on the issue.'"
Pfeiffer is wrong about presidential use of profane language being nothing more than a distraction, but he's right that trust is important and should be focused upon.
Obama is NOT trustworthy.
He's a liar, and he should be identified as one.
Pretending otherwise helps him.
Obama also is vulgar and that's not presidential.
Mitt Romney is presidential and not vulgar.
But Romney needs to call a liar a liar, not a good but mistaken fellow.
Obama is not morally fit to be President of the United States.
He's not running on his dismal record for the obvious reason: if the election becomes a referendum on his job performance, he will lose. He's running on likeability, because the liberal media establishment has sold the notion that he's a nice fellow, and claiming that his rival--presumptive 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romnery really is a bad guy, maybe even an unindicted felon.
Michelle Malkin smartly tweeted: "Now that Obama's calling him a liar, tax cheat & felon, maybe Romney will finally stop calling O a 'nice guy.'"
Laura Ingraham promptly retweeted that message.
Romney needs to get the message before it's too late.
Michael J. Gaynor has been practicing law in New York since 1973. A former partner at Fulton, Duncombe & Rowe and Gaynor & Bass, he is a solo practitioner admitted to practice in New York state and federal courts and an Association of the Bar of the City of New York member.
Gaynor graduated magna cum laude, with Honors in Social Science, from Hofstra University's New College, and received his J.D. degree from St. John's Law School, where he won the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and served as an editor of the Law Review and the St. Thomas More Institute for Legal Research. He wrote on the Pentagon Papers case for the Review and obscenity law for The Catholic Lawyer and edited the Law Review's commentary on significant developments in New York law.
The day after graduating, Gaynor joined the Fulton firm, where he focused on litigation and corporate law. In 1997 Gaynor and Emily Bass formed Gaynor & Bass and then conducted a general legal practice, emphasizing litigation, and represented corporations, individuals and a New York City labor union. Notably, Gaynor & Bass prevailed in the Second Circuit in a seminal copyright infringement case, Tasini v. New York Times, against newspaper and magazine publishers and Lexis-Nexis. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, 7 to 2, holding that the copyrights of freelance writers had been infringed when their work was put online without permission or compensation.
Gaynor currently contributes regularly to www.MichNews.com, www.RenewAmerica.com, www.WebCommentary.com, www.PostChronicle.com and www.therealitycheck.org and has contributed to many other websites. He has written extensively on political and religious issues, notably the Terry Schiavo case, the Duke "no rape" case, ACORN and canon law, and appeared as a guest on television and radio. He was acknowledged in Until Proven Innocent, by Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson, and Culture of Corruption, by Michelle Malkin. He appeared on "Your World With Cavuto" to promote an eBay boycott that he initiated and "The World Over With Raymond Arroyo" (EWTN) to discuss the legal implications of the Schiavo case. On October 22, 2008, Gaynor was the first to report that The New York Times had killed an Obama/ACORN expose on which a Times reporter had been working with ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.
