When it comes to lies and half-truths, Romney saves his best stuff for foreign policy.

Mitt Romney has delivered a lot of dishonest speeches in recent months, but Monday’s address on foreign policy may be the most mendacious yet.

It was expected that he would distort President Obama into a caricature of Jimmy Carter. But it was astonishing to watch Romney spin a daydream of himself as some latter-day George Marshall, bringing peace, prosperity, and hope to a chaotic world—this from a man who couldn’t drop in on the London Olympics without alienating our closest ally and turning himself into a transcontinental laughingstock.

Even though they applauded, some GOPers may have been saying “did he say what I think he just said?” My wife summed it up best – “I don’t trust a single word that man says.” As fpr the polls, it depends on the source, strategy and execution. That margin of error should be used to decipher the poll result. It is close. BTG
