Christie: Romney will 'tell us the hard truths'

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - Chris Christie brought his trademark passion to the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, delivering a robust endorsement of Mitt Romney for president and advocating a tough-minded approach for dealing with the nation's economic and political problems.

The New Jersey governor is well known for plain talk and while some edges were softened at times, he mostly stuck to his familiar style in the coveted keynote address aimed at firing up the party faithful and appealing to a prime-time television audience.

    So, WHEN is romney going to start telling the truth? Romney needs a fact-checker to follow him.

    "Romney will 'tell us the hard truths'


    When will he start telling us the truth?

    I realize all truth is hard for Romney, but so far he either has lied (check the welfare ads) or refused to answer at all (no details on his plans, refusal to disclose his taxes).

    Seriously? Mitt tell the truth, that's laughable. This guy has no core, he'll say whatever suites his situation at the moment.

  6. Should we call him Spiro Romney?

    Gov, Sam Brownback i(Repub) s on MSNBC admitting that the Romney claim in his welfare ads are a lie. Pivoting as quick as he can, but it's still out there.

    I guess there are some honest Repubs. We could use more.

    The TRUTH ??? The TRUTH from Romney ? That will NEVER happen ! Same goes for Ryan, he and his family have strong investments in Bio Oil Corporations and the Koch Bros. What does that tell ya ? By the way,.....Don't forget, Mitt Romney is a Wallstreet Financial Investment Banker & Ceo, and Paul Ryan is a EX-tremeist T-Party Republican. If anyone wants that combination ruleing this country they have to be crazy !
