the "Solyndra" comment wasn't complete truth since not all 90 billion went straight to green companies...some went to parks and other things (according to CNN this morning)

ETA: not bashing Romney or anything, just pointing out the 90 billion number was a little misleading

1. "Change" in tax plan - was saying same thing, just called Obama out with the "not increasing the deficit" qualifier, and his 6 studies vs. Obama's ONE. They differ on what a tax cut means.

2. Romney is FOR teachers. Romney crushed the comeback with 90 billion hires 2,000,000 teachers

3. ObamaCare facts on the panel. Obviously correct. Obama looked like a tard trying to define this.

Basically Romney was VERY nuanced in his speech and said what he has been saying in such a way Obama would have been arguing with himself had he challenged Romney.

Yes he should have said 266,000 teachers instead.

I work with a lot of libs to say the least. They were talking this morning and they kept saying that all Romney does is lie to make Obama look bad. This is the status quo and it will not change for this group. Of course, they looked at Obama's performance last night as him just being in "shock" that Romney was lying so much!

This one is pretty huge and Obama failed to drill this home:

quote:

ROMNEY on cutting the deficit: "Obamacare's on my list. ... I'm going to stop the subsidy to PBS. ... I'll make government more efficient."
THE FACTS: Romney has promised to balance the budget in eight years to 10 years, but he hasn't offered a complete plan. Instead, he's promised a set of principles, some of which — like increasing Pentagon spending and restoring more than $700 billion in cuts that Democrats made in Medicare over the coming decade — work against his goal. He also has said he will not consider tax increases.

He pledges to shrink the government to 20 percent of the size of the economy, as opposed to more than 23 percent of gross domestic product now, by the end of his first term. The Romney campaign estimates that would require cuts of $500 billion from the 2016 budget alone. He also has pledged to cut tax rates by 20 percent, paying for them by eliminating tax breaks for the wealthiest and through economic growth.

To fulfill his promise, then, Romney would require cuts to other programs so deep — under one calculation requiring cutting many areas of the domestic budget by one-third within four years — that they could never get through Congress. Cuts to domestic agencies would have to be particularly deep.

But he's offered only a few modest examples of government programs he'd be willing to squeeze, like subsidies to PBS and Amtrak. He does want to repeal Obama's big health care law, but that law is actually forecast to reduce the deficit.


What was so frustrating about Obama's performance last night as a Democrat was that it seemed so obvious that Romney was selling a bunch of bull shite. He promised everything to everyone and got away completely from having to lay out the hard choices that he would have to make if he was really serious about instituting his policy objectives. You cannot have everything that Romney is offering. It just isn't mathematically possible.

First of all, there is great irony in an Obama supporter getting up in arms over supposed lies of Romney.

Here is the deal, Obama and the democrats have built a strawman Mitt Romney and have been selling it to the masses for the last 8 months.

They have sold it so hard that they have not even bothered to find out if what they are saying is true or not.

When called out on the lies in a format in which they had to defend their position, Obama could not do it. He was ill prepared. Moreover, he had to defend his own lies and shitty record...he was also unable to do that.

I have full confidence, with the help of the media, that the democrats and Obama will fully recover from the arse whipping they took last night.

However, they have to be worried. There are more debates and more topics to be exposed on.

I would imagine that media matters and the Obama campaign staff are in full scramble mode right now knowing full well that what was considered a sure thing 24 hours ago, might not be so sure anymore.

That corporate welfare comment Obabama made was a homerun waiting to happen for Romney. He got a single off of it, but it should have been much more damning against Obama.

It is laughable that Obama would even bring up corporate welfare as something Republicans do.

Sounds more realistic than cutting the deficit in half in 4 without a plan does it not?

I would bet just about anything that there is somewhere you can find where Obama, or someone in his administration, was touting a "$90 Billion green initiative" or something along those lines.

Damn, I don't know why but this sounds really familiar.
