Now... I have read in various places people complaining about the MODERATOR. Suggesting it was THEIR job to point out when Romney was lying. Bullshit. It wasn't. That's OBAMA's job. It is ALWAYS the job of the person IN THE DEBATE to contest the points being made by their opponent. That he chose to do otherwise, as he has done for four strait years now, is why he 'lost.' And if Romney, against steep odds, manages to WIN the election, it will once again be a case of teh stupid triumphing over the weak.
Barbara Morill over at the Daily Kos did an excellent write-up enumerating Mitt's many falsehoods. Just the highlights:
When he claimed that "pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan." They're not.Well done. And the FACT-CHECKERS are, in general, ripping Mitt apart. Too bad facts are for Liberals, and the rest of the Country keeps hearing about how "strong" Mitt was. (Notice how no one is saying how 'well informed' (or, more accurately, mis-informed) he was.
When he said that President Obama had "cut Medicare by $716 billion to pay for Obamacare." Obama didn't.
When he denied proposing a $5 trillion tax cut. He did.
When he said President Obama had "added almost as much to the federal debt as all the prior presidents combined." Not even close.
When he resurrected "death panels." That was called "one of the biggest whoppers of the night."
When he stated that half the green energy companies given stimulus funds had failed. Only if three out of nearly three dozen is half.
No. He was "Strong."
BEHOLD: Your liberal media!
So once again we're left to choose between the "Strong" and the "Smart."
Oh hell, who am I kidding?
Once Paul Ryan was added to the ticket, there became no doubt at all this was a race between the STUPID (-R) and the WEAK (-D).
That being said, as I just told Steeve, I will continue to vote for the Party that's shitty at implementing great ideas over the one that great at implementing shitty ones.
