Good point! And if somebody is the Commander in Chief, shouldn't they be held to military standards, for things such as "conduct unbecoming of an officer"?

Because I didn't just read an article about Obama lying. I read one about rMoney lying. Specifically, how it's incredibly difficult to debate somebody when you don't know what his position is. Given it changes on a daily basis, and changes based upon who he's talking to. The reason he "won" the debate is cause he lied his ass off to make himself appeal to lots of people. He backtracked on everything he said during his campaign, and his position has now swung 180 degrees to the other side.
I know that if he is elected, it will swing right back to the other side.

Are you serious? You believe Obama wasn't lying when he said Romney wants to give rich people a $5 trillion tax break?
You do know that is a complete lie, right? That the number of five trillion dollars is all BS. Please don't tell me you believe that lie Obama told and is still telling.
Five trillion dollar tax break, it's absurd to even say that out loud. Obama is counting on people to not take a moment and consider exactly what five trillion dollars really is. I'm boggled to how he even came to pick that particularly large number to state. I guess the adage, "the bigger the lie the more likely people will believe it" comes into play, maybe, I dunno.
But if you wanna believe that lie, then have at it. Just keep thinking it's "the other guy" who lies and not "your guy". You'll be well served thinking like that......
It is true that a central facet of Mitt Romney’s economic plan is a 20 percent across-the-board reduction in marginal tax rates, plus elimination of the estate tax and the alternative minimum tax (AMT). Do the math on how much money the federal government would forgo as a result of this, and it’s about $456 billion a year. Over 10 years, that rounds up to $5 trillion. That's the calculus behind the "$5 trillion tax cut" figure that Obama cites.
