Mitt tells us where to go

Have you seen Romney's new ad?



It only confirms that my decision not to vote for Mitt is sound. (I'm not thrilled about voting for the other guy, because he didn't veto the NDAA. But that's a different story.)

Anyway, that ad inspired the following response from Democratic Underground:


I have my own response, and it contains more profanity:
  • Approve Keystone pipeline = tell Nebraskans who are worried about the Ogallala aquifer to go fuck themselves
  • Tax cuts that reward job creators = either make deep cuts to government programs that benefit the poor and middle class, or increase the tax burden on the middle class to make up for lost tax revenue, and tell the poor and middle class to go fuck themselves
  • End Obamacare = reward the freeloaders who refuse to insure themselves and who expect those of us to are insured to continue to pay for their visits to the emergency room while we are told to go fuck ourselves
Mitt, I'm so sorry you had to sell your soul to get the nomination, just like McCain before you. But now that you sound like you are completely out of your mind, you can't expect me to take you seriously, much less vote for you. So why don't you go fuck yourself?

Americans for Mendacity

Here's an ad from Americans for Prosperity:


Here's a story about the ad from Chris Cillizza
. Cillizza notes, "Our Factchecker deemed this ad false, [since it relies] on since-debunked claims about the stimulus."

Here's the Obama administration's response to the ad:


And here's Politifact's file on AFP which, by the way, completely supports the President's response. Five statements by AFP: two mostly false, one false, and two pants on fire. That's not a good record.

If you're a Tea Partier, demand that Americans for Prosperity (and the Koch brothers?) stop bullshitting and have respect for the facts.

Your political views are supported by actual facts, right?
