Is Romney stupid or just a liar?

Is Romney stupid or just a liar?

The following article from Politifact is a very good indicator why we do not want Romney as Commander-in-Chief. He either has not a clue about the military or he is willing to lie about it.

Coffman & Tipton bash Obama over Keystone

Colorado Congressmen Coffman and Tipton (and Republican Presidential candidates) were quick to speak out when President Obama nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline.

The major problem for my aircrew was the short distance between the end of the runway and the fence demarking the “border” between the U.S. Navy and Cuba. It made for a difficult approach at night at an unfamiliar ... Full Story
