whoa…that was a whopper!

This is the morning after the night after the debate. I’m still not sure why Obama let Romney get away with lying his way through a “win” in the debate from Denver. I am still scratching my head. At first I thought Romney was turning moderate Republican again, but as I listened, he just flat out lied in our face about stuff and I am wondering why Obama didn’t throw it back and ask politely for him to just back up what he said. I got the impression that Romney had all these things he wanted to say and it all came out true or most often not true. For Example…

Romney lied:

When he claimed that “pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan.” They’re not.
When he said that President Obama had “cut Medicare by $716 billion to pay for Obamacare.” Obama didn’t.
When he denied proposing a $5 trillion tax cut. He did.
When he said President Obama had “added almost as much to the federal debt as all the prior presidents combined.” Not even close.
When he resurrected “death panels.” That was called “one of the biggest whoppers of the night.”
When he stated that half the green energy companies given stimulus funds had failed. Only if three out of nearly three dozen is half.

and the beat goes on and on and on…
