Gergen on CNN: President Obama Surprised Romney Was Lying

&feature=player_embedded


Facts Matter and Mitt Romney Didn’t Deliver Them
While Mitt Romney’s rhetoric may have sounded polished tonight, it just wasn’t true. On issue after issue, Romney avoided giving specifics and, in several instances, told flat-out falsehoods.

It’s no surprise why – the more Americans learn about Mitt Romney’s plans to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, to eliminate Wall Street reforms that protect middle class families from the abuses that caused the recession, and to repeal Obamacare with no plans to help individuals with pre-existing conditions, the less likely they are to support him.

Facts matter and Mitt Romney is unwilling to give them to the American people.
CNN’s David Gergen: “Romney was just sort of flat out lying.”

2. If Gergen is admitting this, then Romney certainly did lie.

The factcheckers will be busy for the next week.

10. Thing is, they weren't even clever technical lies

Politics is all about those technical misleading a, wordsmithed, but Romney was just bald, no equivocation, lying. Unless you are Willing to say "you, sir, are lying", how do you deal with that?

He would have won the debate right there! Knock out punch!

11. Thinking back, I disagree

Take the 5 billion tax cut.. The president should have referred Romney to his own website, 20% across the board tax cut. Calling him a liar is pointless. But challenging him on something easily proved, and letting people decide for themselves, that might have been effective.

9. Gore won his first debate with Bush

then three days later had lost it over style.

I'm hoping the same thing happens to Rmoney with his lies exposed and the cheap shot at Big Bird working against him.

13. The sighs

I was thinking about that as well tonight. There's always a back-story after these debates. Team Obama will be armed with the fact of Romney's lies and will no doubt push it starting tomorrow. I expect most of the luster will wear off Romney's debate performance by the weekend.

17. I sure hope President Obama steps his game up or we are all screwed.

Yep, I believe President Obama was truly surprised at Romney's brazen lies, but 30 minutes in, President Obama should have woke the FUCK up and checked Romney's arrogant snobby lying ass.
