Another Lie From Mychal Massie
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Mychal Massie's Aug. 20 WorldNetDaily column is full of advice to Mitt Romney, which of course involves telling lies about President Obama:

I would carry copies of my returns for the five years Obama wants released, on every campaign stop. I would hold them up to the crowds and open every rally and/or interview by saying, “I will release these the moment Obama unseals the things he has paid millions to keep hidden from the American public.”

I would turn Obama’s demands into a vendetta against him. I would run campaign ads showcasing Obama as a hypocrite for trying to divert attention from his abysmal record and trying to hide his past. I would point out that the only reason a person hides things about himself is because he has something to hide.

One of my campaign slogans would be – I’ll show you mine if you unseal yours. I would tell the people that no president or world leader in history has hired large law firms to keep his past a secret.

As we've previously pointed out, not even WND has proven that Obama has "paid millions" to hide his records, only his campaign paid a law firm money for legal services that included defending Obama in a birther lawsuit. Many of the records he's supposedly hiding are protected by federal privacy laws -- the same ones the apply to Massie's records -- and cost nothing to keep private.

Only the truly stupid and gullible can extrapolate Obama having "paid millions to keep hidden from the American public" from that. But that's what Massie appears to be.
