And we -- only 117.
Days away from Election Day 2012 and it appears that the presumptive Republican nominee has heard just about enough -- president Barack Obama's deceptive rhetoric.
Because tonight the Romney campaign is striking back in a big way against the blatant lies that are being told.
By the left about his business background.
When a president doesn't tell the truth how can we trust him to lead the Obama outsourcing attacks misleading and unfair and untrue.
There was no evidence that Mitt Romney ship jobs overseas.
Candidate Obama lied about Hillary Clinton.
-- shame on you Barack Obama and America expects more from president.
Obama's dishonest campaign -- another reason America has lost confidence and Barack Obama.
That is a big question of the day when the president does not tell the truth to the American people how can you trust in the lead and joining me now to help answer that question and much more is in Richmond Virginia tonight.
Where earlier today he was out campaigning for governor Mitt Romney former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani mr.
-- -- -- -- Our Sean appreciate being back -- it seems that as this campaign goes on.
That Barack Obama has a character problem the one thing he seemed to hang on to for a long time throughout his presidency.
Is this idea -- like ability to -- now put that in jeopardy.
Well I think this is big problem is he can't run on his record so he can't he can't say the American people the way Ronald Reagan did you know this morning in America.
I inherited a terrible economy and I made -- much much better he's got to say I inherited a bad economy I made a much worse.
So what does he have to do he's got to distort he's got a misrepresent he's got to do everything he can.
To try to tar.
You know Mitt Mitt Mitt Romney who just happens to be was an enormously successful businessman.
So I mean if it's Mitt Romney can have the same success for us America that he had to Bain Capital and their investors we will be in great shape -- -- -- but look at this week Vista may.
And this week now you could see what's happening they've ratcheted up in the Obama campaign first is that Cayman Islands it's Bermuda.
Offshore bank accounts insinuation that there is corruption going on.
And how this latest attack on outsourcing at a time when governor Romney was not at Bain Capital.
So that I mean this is -- this is all not coincidental I mean this is because this election has gotten close really really close.
Went out when you look at the polls there they're dead even but the enthusiasm level on the Romney side.
Is significantly higher than that he -- the enthusiasm level on on his side.
And and Romney is out raising him in terms of money so I think they're -- I think I think that's why the president says something stupid like you know should Chavez is not a threat to our national security.
And -- -- why does somebody say that except if they're panicky and they're not really focused and that's really just a and absolutely unrealistic dumb comment.
About as dumb as his comment that he would negotiate without precondition -- Chavez which Hillary Clinton said indicated he was -- -- immature irresponsible.
Yeah well let me go back to 2007 -- -- when he said that Iran.
Cuba Venezuela they're tiny countries that don't represented a threat so -- -- -- -- and what -- sent them.
I let me ask you -- -- He hasn't gotten any he ever got any more realistic Sean I mean it here he's been president for three and a half years.
And he still walking around saying Chavez is not a threat to our national security a -- best friend in the Western Hemisphere.
The biggest sponsor of state terrorism is is a ran.
Chavez is your best friend in the Western Hemisphere.
He's trying to export socialism and communism in just about everything else as far as he can.
In South America and he's not a threat to our national security may be all the thank -- eleven on Mars if you think that.
I believe in the Monroe doctrine -- Bartlett and let me ask you this and you mentioned the polls are even and you used the word desperation.
If you look at that ABC Washington Post poll we -- this earlier in the week.
They they outpolled Democrats by 9%.
And on every major issue the president's upside down in most cases double digits so I think you're right on this desperation issue.
Is this now what we're -- experience for the rest of the campaign to smear attack Chicago way DC get worse and how I'm not -- how they handle.
He should handle it the way he's been handling he should answer them quickly answer them decisively as he's done and then.
Get right back to the economy and get right back to the only reason is doing this is because he doesn't have a record that he can run on.
Many people run for reelection on having done a good job having kept their promises having straightened out of country or city when I ran for reelection as mayor.
I ran on the fact that I promise to reduce crime -- reduce crime.
I didn't run on the fact.
The my opponent will should should we -- I read on my record.
-- -- let me ask you if the president has an honesty problem and what do you what do you think this is.
Purposeful looking protection get a piece out today President Obama made a career out of falsehoods that's how -- -- -- out.
Here's -- so so the question I have for you is the president and all of us targets what obamacare was being debated he said a couple of things he said.
-- an -- one of the main things was that.
This is not a tax it's a penalty many sends a solicitor general to the Supreme Court of the United States what does he do.
He argues that the opposite of what the president told the American people that it.
So was it got rid of it so my question here is -- so if there was -- being purposefully deceitful and dishonest to the American people.
I don't know it doesn't matter I mean it ends up being a misrepresentation.
Of facts and fact -- Obama the candidate was opposed to mandates.
And and criticized Hillary Clinton for being in favor of mandates.
So now he he executes the biggest mandate in the history of America.
And then and then distorts whether it's whether it's a fine or or tax.
I think what what do you what what really happens is the truth is victim to their ideology and how important they think they are.
I think this is a significant left wing problem I think there's this sort of moral sense that they think they're on the right side and they can say anything.
Two to advance their advance their cause -- what they're extremely disciplined as a result of that.
While he said that it would be attacks in the middle class and 76% of Obama cares tax goes on the middle class I mean the biggest and it.
-- biggest tax ever on the the biggest tax ever on -- on the on the middle class I think there's a there's a sense.
Particularly on the extreme left and I think president a bomber is the extreme left and he was the most liberal member of the United States senate he had the most liberal voting record.
We shouldn't be shocked by all this mean they they basically feel they have the moral high ground which is absurd but they think that.
And then any any -- misrepresentation they make.
-- partially justified in for the for the higher good and the media or at least 75% of that lets them get away with -- so they get very very undisciplined they get very sloppy.
First mystery misrepresentation by Republican and they ripped apart by the media and you learn boy you better be real careful.
You know what what bothers me if -- remember the president made a big deal of keeping quote the cost -- -- selling obamacare.
Below trillion dollars 900 per -- -- our 900 billion.
CBO comes out a few months ago one point eight trillion -- double now we have a new report out today.
Two point six trillion is the estimated cost so it's tripled and is not even been implemented.
So I mean realistically.
This is gonna be far more expensive than anybody imagined which means that promises will never be fulfilled now.
Actually right I mean.
A psychologist can tell you is it deliberate is it being accidental what does -- -- here here's your simple fact.
We can't that we can't trust.
The things this administration says because they turn out to be highly inaccurate.
During this campaign I I guarantee you what we see now is only gonna get worse.
They're gonna attack Mitt Romney with -- many misrepresentations.
As many distortions.
As you possibly can can imagine.
Because there's actually nothing wrong -- Mitt Romney's background.
The managed the man should be very very proud of the fact he's been enormously successful business.
That's generally what we want to know president someone who's been successful in the past we've tried someone who didn't have a great deal of success in the past and -- -- we've gotten.
So now let's try somebody that's been successful in the past successful with the governor successful -- the Olympics.
And highly successful in business F and our as far as I'm concerned if he can do for me as an American what he -- for the investors in -- Well I want him in the White House all right mr.
mayor good to see -- as always -- to be right.
