Politicus USA: Mitt Romney Gives Obama All The Lies He Needs to Hang Him With

http://www.politicususa.com/mitt-romney-obama-lies-hang.html

Mitt Romney’s lie based strategy couldn’t measure up to Obama, and gave the president all the rope he needs to hang the Republican nominee.

The first question was about jobs, and Obama framed the question as about the future direction of the country. Romney starts off with an immediate lie that he is not going to cut taxes on the rich, and launched into his stump speech five point plan that provides no details. Eight minutes into the debate, Romney’s main pitch was “trust me” on the economy. (Romney looks nervous and like he might throw up.) Romney then broke off a lie and said that he doesn’t have a $5 trillion tax cut. Romney then tried to paint himself as the candidate of the middle class, with the claim that middle income families are being crushed under Obama. Romney promises to drill on government land for oil and natural gas, and touts drill, baby drill. Romney sprinkled a little fairy dust and claimed that he isn’t raising taxes on the middle class. Obama hits Romney by telling the truth that Romney has been pushing a $5 trillion tax cut. Obama blasts Romney for not delivering specifics on what deductions and loopholes he would close.

It took less than 16 minutes for Romney lose his cool and interrupt the moderator. Romney followed up by contradicting his own running mate’s claim that Romney is going to cut taxes 20% across the board for all income earners. Obama brought Romney back to reality by telling him that his tax plan doesn’t add up. Obama touted cutting taxes 18 times, and cutting taxes for the 98%.

Obama hit Romney for defining millionaires and billionaires is small business. Mitt Romney delivered some highly deceiving statistics about small businesses. According to Washington Monthly the Romney/Republican definition includes, “Many of those 750,000 small businesses aren’t small at all. Some, like Bechtel Corporation, are positively enormous. The Democratic and Republican figures come from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation. But numerous think tanks and government organizations have examined the data and come to similar conclusions: First, that letting the Bush tax cuts on the top two brackets of “small-business” income would impact a tiny percentage of those businesses; and second, that many of the “small businesses” that would be impacted are actually giant companies — which explains why such a tiny fraction of them can account for half of small business income.”

Romney did tell one truth. He admitted that Mass purposely elected a republican senator to block Obamacare. And then was disgruntled that the dems pushed it through anyway.


Someone was asking about this earlier..if Romney did a disservice to Scott Brown in the debate?

4. Obama could have had better

 

rehearsed responses and they whole thing would have gone better. His answers were like a press conference. Romney was razor sharp, even though there were lies, they were direct and on point.

7. And how can Rmoney win on "style" when he interrupted people?

I watched that an Rmoney's "style" was not good at all. And if he was truly lying, how could he possibly "win?" I don't get the left sometimes. It's like we want to lose.

5. Well it seems that being a pathological liar

comes naturally to Mittens. I guess when you are lying to people under aggression ya'figure the opponent should go on attack and raise his voice as well. O did exactly what he intended to do and although O lost the battle, O will win the war. Mittens will be exposed even more and hey Mittens campaign is already walking back shit and oh by the way, Mittens did make a gaffe the demise of Big Bird.
