What’s the most inaccurate thing your opponent has said or mischaracterization they’ve made about you in this campaign?
Time remaining for our candidates to respond
Governor Mitt Romney
“ Democrats are trying to scare the American people into thinking that if I am elected, the middle class will pay $2,000 more in taxes. That is just wrong, and the study that the Democrats use to support this false claim bases its findings on unfounded assumptions that have since been discredited.
President Barack Obama
“ By its own admission, the Romney campaign isn’t “dictated by fact-checkers,” which has been obvious for quite some time. There’s no sense in rehashing all the times Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan haven’t told the truth about President Obama – their campaign strategy seems to place a premium on misrepresenting key facts and ripping the President’s words out of context to suggest he believes something other than what he believes. It has happened too often to count, and it betrays a campaign bereft of ideas. ”
