Response to Zalatix (Original post)

36. Oh for Pete's sake. Yes, he did. Stop telling people what to think & say.

Really, do we have to have this conversation every SINGLE time something doesn't reflect well on Obama? It's not our jobs as citizens or Democrats to "spin" things. It's a valid point that Romney lied his tail off, but a lie unanswered becomes the truth.

Obama stared at his shoes. He mumbled. He hesitated. He cast about. He did not even respond to Romney repeating the "$716 billion cut from Medicare" line 9,000 times.

You can't do that in a debate and "win" under any rubric.

Romney came off looking far better than he had a right to, and Obama had the ability and the responsibility to stop him. It's one thing to point out that Romney was dishonest, but it's another to ignore the fact that Obama did nothing to counter it effectively.

We're supposed to be the ones who are smarter than this.
