Is lying a protected First Amendment right?
The Obama campaign has its tail between its legs—another ethical fail—as the President’s super-PAC has created an anti-Romney ad based on a foundation of lies and mendacity.
Lies and mendacity are useful in attempting to have Obama’s record examined, but are they forms of protected speech?
The revelation drew an immediate rebuke from Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams, who said Obama and his campaign “are willing to say and do anything to hide the president’s disappointing record.”
“But they’re not entitled to repeatedly mislead voters,” he said.
Desperate ads for desperate campaigns.
