Romney's Objectively False Statements
My Name Is...
At a GOP presidential debate last November, Romney followed CNN host Wolf Blitzer's lead, giving his own attempt at an introduction.
"I'm Mitt Romney -- and yes Wolf, that's also my first name," the former governor offered.

That is entirely, completely, 100 percent, not true.
Romney's first name is Willard. Willard Mitt Romney: Male, 65 years old, married, white, businessman-turned-governor-turned-potential-next president of the United States of America. His father, George Romney, a <a href="http://www.vice.com/vice-news/the-mexican-mormon-war-trailer">Mexican-born</a> governor and onetime presidential candidate, named him after J. Willard Marriott, of Marriott hotel fame. His middle name, "Mitt," was apparently an homage to his father's cousin, Milton "Mitt" Romney.
So, what Romney really should have said was, "I'm Mitt Romney -- and yes Wolf, that was the nickname of my first cousin once removed."
