The dominant media narrative today is 'Romney Lied' That's a clear win for Pres. Obama. [View all]

There are virtually NO stories about Obama and the economy, which was supposed to be his weak spot. Most of the criticisms have dwelled on his performance; leaving the substance of what he related to voters watching, virtually untouched and standing tall.

There just isn't a wall of criticism, like Romney's facing today, questioning the veracity of the president's remarks in the debate, but, there are reporters falling over themselves to catch Romney up in his obvious lies. That's the critical point here: Romney is accountable to the press today; not merely to some charge from his opponent that can be equalized and put into the same basket of attacks as his rival. Romney is standing alone, out in the open, facing questions from the actual media about his lack of truthfulness.

Look at the headlines: Besides the chattering about the president's performance, Romney never laid a glove on him; at least not one that made it to the headlines today. The media narrative emerging is clearly that, 'Romney Lied, Repeatedly' in the debate. It couldn't be any better today to have President Obama down there in the mud with him.
