What is Mitt Romney's problem with the truth? All politicians shade the truth but Romney puts it into total eclipse. He lies about his positions and his beliefs. He lies about his past and his future. He lies about his lies.
Yet this prissy egomaniac is the frontrunner and likely Republican nominee for president.
In a year like this all the Republicans need is a competent individual willing to tell people the truth every once in a while. Obama wouldn't stand a chance against a sane alternative who could break with Republican orthodoxy and at least appear to actually mean it.
That alternative is decidedly not Willard M. Romney.
