I would ask Mitt Romney: "Mr. Romney, why did you lie in the first debate about 3-4 times more often than President Obama. Fact checkers and leading media outlets like the Associated Press have shown you lied at least 27 times in the 38 minutes you spoke. You told blatant inaccuracies about your healthcare plan, about unemployment figures and other topics. I thought the Republican Party was the party of integrity. With all of your lying, how can American voters expect you to tell the truth with your promises to them -- should you win the election? "

Mr. Romney, in your first debate, you said you didn’t plan a huge tax cut for all Americans, including millionaires and billionaires. However, this is contrary to your own videotaped comments a few months ago when you said: “We are going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20 percent, including the top 1 percent. “ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJzUQwJFW7k Which is the truth, Mr. Romney, and why did you lie? Mr. Romney, you said that your healthcare plan will cover pre-existing conditions, while leading news media and your own campaign have said this is FALSE. Why did you LIE? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/05/opinion/krugman-romneys-sick-joke.html?_r=0 http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/oct/05/mitt-romney/mitt-romney-says-his-health-care-plan-covers-pre-e/ Mr. Romney, you own or have owned several bank accounts in Switzerland, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda, and you have control over where those funds go, as you have admitted. Why are you betting against America with those foreign funds, and isn't this a foreign policy security issue? And, are you receiving any funds, directly or indirectly, from Communist China in support of your election? http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/2012/08/investigating-mitt-romney-offshore-accounts http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9DVKWhPibw
