The Latest Lie: Obama Will “Take God Off Our Coins”

Dave Johnson

Campaigning alongside Pat Robertson today, Mitt Romney implied that President Obama plans to “take God off our coins.”

“That pledge says ‘under God.’ I will not take God out of our platform. I will not take God off our coins. And I will not take God out of my heart.”

Obama spokeswoman Lis Smith called the insinsuation false and an act of desperation.

“It’s disappointing to see Mitt Romney try to throw a Hail Mary by launching extreme and untrue attacks against the President and associating with some of the most strident and divisive voices in the Republican Party, including Rep. Steve King and Pat Robertson,” she said in a statement. “This isn’t a recipe for making America stronger, it’s a recipe for division and taking us backward.”

Romney also said he would “rebuild America’s military might.” President Reagan doubled the military budget. President George ‘W’ Bush doubled the military budget again. The United States currently spends more on military than all other nations combined.
