Almost every statement of “fact” in the following petition — which the Romney campaign is circulating in Iowa, and which accuses the president of misleading Iowans — is a bald-faced lie:
Four years ago, Candidate Obama said adding $4 trillion to our national debt was “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic.” Iowans felt we could trust President Obama to get our nation’s fiscal house in order.
But President Obama led us to four straight trillion-dollar-plus deficits and added more than $5 trillion to our national debt.
Every Iowan now owes over $50,000 in his or her share of this debt, a burden that will be passed on to our children and grandchildren.
We trusted President Obama, but he has let us down.
I support Mitt Romney because he has a comprehensive plan to lower taxes, reduce the size of government, and grow our economy. As president, he will cut spending, eliminate waste, repeal Obamacare, reform entitlements, and bring fiscal responsibility to the White House.
