Do we need to beat a dead horse ?? Nahhhhh !!!! But we need to continue bringing to light the differences between the lies the conservatives put out versus the truth of the situations they are propagandizing about. Romney's fanciful flights from reality are getting really tiresome. Here is a link to what the spin is like. http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/
From the link:
I have to admit that I haven’t been paying much attention to Mitt Romney’s foreign policy; the domestic side already offers a target-rich environment. But my eyebrows shot up when Dan Senor popped up speaking for Romney in the Libya/Egypt flap. Dan Senor?
I mean, Senor is one of the key figures in Rajiv Chandrasekharan’s Imperial Life in the Emerald City, an account of the disastrous US occupation of Iraq. As the head of public relations for the Coalition Provisional Authority, he exemplified the core problem with that occupation: officials were chosen for political loyalty to Bush, not experience or competence, and were evidently much more interested in getting Bush reelected than in running the country they were supposed to be fixing.
In Senor’s case this meant that instead of trying to win Iraqi hearts and minds, he was busy trying to put a smiley-face on events for the American audience, spinning reality so badly that he quickly became a joke, “Baghdad Dan”, to anyone actually paying attention.
After that record, Senor should have gone on to sell insurance, make furniture, whatever — something, anything, other than advise anyone on foreign policy. Yet there he is, part of Romney’s entourage. And in general Romney has gathered around him the very same crew that botched Iraq. ...
You see that Romney has hired some of the same people as GW Bush did to make his presidency what it was. That alone should be an air raid siren that calls us to defeat the enemy- yes to me Romney is an enemy, to my country, to my faith, and to my way of life based upon the Sovereignty of America- just as when the Nazi party of Germany used liberals, Jews, blacks, mixed races, homosexuals, mentally handicapped, unions, Communists and True Christian churches as being the real problem and enemy. The GOP/TP is heading down the same sick path, but trying to brighten it by using wealth as the carrot in front of the horse they are beating and working to death to acheive their wealth. Did you know many in the German high command became extremely wealthy through their hatred. They believed in making slaves of people for their profit. What are the businesses doing to the Chinese workers and others who have no say in how much they are paid or under what working conditions they must work ??
What does Romney do as the job creator he claims to be ?? He sends work to the countries where labor laws don't exist and child labor is encouraged, as well as the lowest wage possible being paid to pad the profits of the corporations while the workers receive little in the way of profit for their work.

Mitt Romney likes to say he won't "apologize" for his success in business. But what he never says is "thank you" – to the American people – for the federal bailout of Bain & Company that made so much of his outsize wealth possible.
According to the candidate's mythology, Romney took leave of his duties at the private equity firm Bain Capital in 1990 and rode in on a white horse to lead a swift restructuring of Bain & Company, preventing the collapse of the consulting firm where his career began. When The Boston Globe reported on the rescue at the time of his Senate run against Ted Kennedy, campaign aides spun Romney as the wizard behind a "long-shot miracle," bragging that he had "saved bank depositors all over the country $30 million when he saved Bain & Company."
In fact, government documents on the bailout obtained by Rolling Stone show that the legend crafted by Romney is basically a lie. The federal records, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, reveal that Romney's initial rescue attempt at Bain & Company was actually a disaster – leaving the firm so financially strapped that it had "no value as a going concern." Even worse, the federal bailout ultimately engineered by Romney screwed the FDIC – the bank insurance system backed by taxpayers – out of at least $10 million. And in an added insult, Romney rewarded top executives at Bain with hefty bonuses at the very moment that he was demanding his handout from the feds. ...
Then we have his world views being shown as he criticized president Obama for the acts of terrorists in other countries, not here in America, like GW Bush actually allowed by his incompetent handling of the information offered to him by president Clinton before he left office. Yeah, he is criticizing president Obama for not running the other countries they way Mitt would. I guess no-one told Mitt yet that President Obama is the president of the USA. But hey if Mitt wants to go run for the presidency of Egypt, or Libya good riddance and good luck to ya.
Another link for Mitt's lack of honor.

Mitt Romney’s harsh and factually inaccurate condemnation of President Obama’s handling of a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya puts him well in front of the rest of his party.
Romney’s aggressive attacks on Obama are a reversal from Romney’s usual approach, where he waits for the party to reach a consensus before stepping in. Nowhere was this more clear than during the military operation in Libya that overthrew Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, when Romney avoided taking a decisive stand in any one direction.
Romney issued a statement late Tuesday condemning Obama’s handling of the attack after news broke that an unnamed foreign service officer had been killed — and even suggested that Obama had expressed support for militants.
“It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks,” he said.
In fact, Romney was wrong: A statement from the U.S. Embassy in Egypt (later disavowed by the White House) condemning an anti-Muslim film made in America was issued before the compound was breached. ...
I mean seriously, this from the guy who avoided Vietnam and then tried to equate his Mormon mission with serving our country in Nam. This from the guy who doesn't know what it is to bleed for America, but wants to control other nations so they'll behave as he wants them to. This guy sounds like a sociopathic person who is a clear and present danger to America and our people.
What sane person straps his dog in it's dog carrier on top of the family station wagon for a long trip, with no remorse or consideration for the dog, or for what he is teaching his family about his views on animals and people ??
Is that what the GOP/TP really want to say is there type of leader for America ??
Apparently it is.
He is not my idea of anything but a money hungry sick individual. How about you ?? What do you think ??
If you like the article please vote it up and comment. So people will know we stand against the lies of the GOP/TP'ers and the offerings they give us as the POTUS and VP.
Also VOTE for the Democrats in congress this term, lets give president Obama a chance to get some real work done this term.
Thanks for reading this even if you don't agree with it. Comments and debates open up views to other people.
