Oops! Stephanocchio Cutter admits ‘$5 trillion’ attack on Romney is a lie


Has lying liar Stephanie Cutter been hanging around “Honest Joe” Biden too much? She seems to have developed an uncharacteristic penchant for truth-telling.

ALERT: @stefcutter just said: "Stipulated…it won't be near $5T" when @erinburnett/'Up Front' confronted her with faulty math @TwitchyTeam

First she admitted Romney won the first presidential debate in Denver. And yesterday on CNN, she conceded that Mitt Romney isn’t actually planning to run up a $5 trillion tab via tax cuts.

.@stefcutter just undermined Obamas whole "tax lie" attack on cnn. Quote "okay, stipulated, it won't be near $5 trillion"

Earlier this week, Sen. Marco Rubio said that Joe Biden is “the best thing we’ve got going.” But good ol’ Stephanocchio is doing a heckuva job vying for runner up.

Obama spends whole day calling mitt a liar then Cutter gets forced to admit its BS! Video coming

Partial transcript via Breitbart TV:

Erin Burnett, CNN host: So you’re saying if you lower them by 20% you get a $5 trillion tab, right?

Stephanie Cutter: It’s a $5 trillion tab.

Burnett: But then when you close deductions it’s not going to be anywhere near $5 trillion, that’s our analysis.

Cutter: Well, okay, stipulated. It won’t be near $5 trillion but it’s also not going to be the sum of $5 trillion in the loopholes that he’s going to close. So it is going to cost someone and it’s going to cost the middle class. Independent economists have taken a look at this. There aren’t enough deductions for those at the top to account for the number of tax cuts that they get because of Mitt Romney’s policy so you have to raise taxes on the middle class. As Bill Clinton said, it’s just simple math.

Evidently, simple math is hard.

Shorter @stefcutter: $5 trillion, $1 trillion, what's the diff? http://t.co/03hyLU04

No matter how you look at it, THIS is pathetic: CUTTER CONCEDES $5 TRILLION ATTACK ON ROMNEY IS NOT TRUE http://t.co/vw6qDED9

One Twitter user helpfully translates Cutter’s use of the word “stipulated”:

Stipulated….Steff Cutter's way of saying she's a lying pants on fire fibbing liar.
