# Lies Romney Tells

jconaty

Mitt Romney tells a lot of lies. He tells so many in fact, that it's hard to keep track of what's a lie and what's the truth. That's why we created www.liesRomneytells.com. Each lie is accompanied by the truth (with source link) and the ability to share that lie/truth over Facebook and Twitter.

The site is optimized for mobile, tablet, desktop in both standard and retina resolutions.

Obama's veracity rises against Mittens "veracity" YET AGAIN on Politifact, he's 3.8 times as truthful as Mythical Rm0ney!
How did I come by that number? One word? ARITHMETIC

This time, I wanted to add a second measure, the Simple True-False measure.
That just divides the number of the 3 true-ish categories by the number of the 3 false-ish statements. Needle...
ss to say, this looks very bad for Mendacious Mitt over time:

5 july Obama true-false: 2,54
Romney true-false: 1,44

10 aug Obama true-false: 2,53
Romney true-false: 1,35

10 sept Obama true-false: 2,63
Romney true-false: 1,38

06 oct Obama true-false: 2,55
Romney true-false: 1,32

The Weighted Scoring Method is fairer, cos it doesn't lump everything together, it shows this as of October 6th:
If a True statement gets 3 points, a Mostly True gets 2, Half True gets 1, Mostly False gets -1, False gets -2 and Pants on Fire gets -3 points, then
Obama has a truth-score of 400 points for 429 statements made = 93.2% and
Romney has one of 45 points for 183 statements made = 24.6%
93.2/24.6 = 3.8
