I'm sure C&L readers know that the Romney received a huge tax deduction for his dancing horse, right?

Let me start off by saying Mitt Romney is a Pathological Liar.

The New York Times reports that the Romney's took a $77,000.00 Tax Deduction on their dancing horse, Rafalca.

The Romneys declared a loss of $77,000 on their 2010 tax returns for the share in the care and feeding of Rafalca, which Mrs. Romney owns with Mr. Ebeling’s wife, Amy, and a family friend, Beth Meyers.

So it doesn't surprise me that he'd do everything in his power to distance himself from any talk about horses, but when he out-and-out makes believe he's completely unaware when Ann's own horse will run in the London games I just about gagged. Will the media ever call Romney out on his preposterous lies?


If you wondered whether Romney really has no center, this should dispel any questions:

Mitt Romney tried to distance himself from the elite horse-dancing sport of dressage on Wednesday night, telling NBC’s Brian Williams that he doesn’t know anything about it – and doesn’t plan to watch his wife’s horse compete in the upcoming Olympics.

“It’s a big, exciting experience for my wife. I have to tell you, this is Ann’s sport,” Romney said. “I’m not even sure which day the sport goes on. She will get the chance to see it, I will not be watching the event. I hope her horse does well.”

This is low, even for him. This is his wife, to whom, by all accounts, he is completely devoted. And that was the best he could do?
Also too, he's just lying:

Romney’s coolness towards dressage is certainly a new development. The presumptive Republican nominee has talked extensively about his love of horses, and he has been deeply involved with his wife’s Olympic contender, Rafalca, in the past. The Romneys have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in the horse, and Mitt himself personally picked the music that Rafalca “danced” to at the World Cup.

Even if he couldn’t attend, it would be odd for a supposed family man — and Olympic enthusiast — to be unaware of what day his wife’s horse is competing.

It's part of the Mormon history and culture to lie about everything they have to so they can protect their religion from too much scrutiny or criticism so I guess it's not a stretch for Mitt to lie even about Rafalca. It's also a clear indicator of what type of man he really is. Ann obviously is on board with this kind of prattle coming from her hubby. How hard could it be for him to have said this?

But it's absurd for them to try to hide it or pretend that it isn't a big deal for their horse to be in the Olympics --- especially since Mitt is supposedly Mr Olympics! Who do they think they're fooling?

Mitt should have just said that Ann's horse is competing and the family is very excited and hopes he brings home the Gold for the USA. Jesus, how hard is it for this guy to be a human being?

Romney will do or say anything when it comes to winning elections. When will the Villagers finally take notice?
