Rachel Maddow Straight Up Calls Mitt Romney a Liar

It's one thing to have a gibbering, screechy right-wing radio host like Mark Levin calling President Obama a liar. He's a reeking ball of negativity. But outside of people like that, it's rare to hear pundits and commentators actually use the "lie" word. There are lots of euphemisms for lying, like misspoke, misconstrued, obfuscated, muddied the waters, played fast and loose and the phrase "to limbaugh." So, when somebody like Rachel Maddow--generally polite, amiable, respectful--calls Mitt Romney a liar. . .my ears perk up.

And she wouldn't do it without evidence. Here's the clip that gets right to the heart of the matter, followed by her lead-in clip with copious lead-in and build-up. They're out of order, because though I'm a fan, not everybody appreciates Rachel's patter. I don't know what's wrong with such people, but there you go.
