    I surprised Romneys relentless assualt of lies was considered a success.

    Debates aren’t won by telling the truth, they are won by not allowing your opponent to refute your statements.

    I have seen some salespeople who are incredibly persuasive. Even though you know in your head they’re lying through their teeth, your heart tells you that you absolutely have to believe them and sign the purchase agreement. A short time after they leave your home (or you leave their sales premises) your brain re-engages and you desperately want to get out of the signed contract, and, at one point, buyers had a few days to get out of the contract if buyers’ remorse set in. But, of course, the buyers had to go back to the sellers to renege, and the sellers could usually convince them not to.


    During the first debate, Romney was just that persuasive. I’m sure, if the election had been held during the debate, both President Obama and Jim Lehrer would have voted for him.


    And I’m sure, an hour after the debate, both had terrible buyers’ remorse.

    Romney began the dismantling of Obama. The next debate should be more of the same.
    Obama is an empty suit and a cheap one at that.

    I’m surprised anyone listened.

    I see the first debate as a draw…. Romney interrupted Lehrer, Obama calmly stuck to his script… If MR is the best the GOP can do (& they accepted him reluctantly) what can I say…. I prefer the professor

    Virtually every time Mr. Romney spoke, he misrepresented the platform on which he and Paul Ryan are actually running. The most prominent example, taking up the first half-hour of the debate, was on taxes. Mr. Romney claimed, against considerable evidence, that he had no intention of cutting taxes on the rich or enacting a tax cut that would increase the deficit.

    That simply isn’t true.

    Starting with Romney’s assertion that his policies will lead to 12 million new jobs over four years and provide the government with fresh tax revenue, how close will that come to plugging the gaping hole in the federal budget?
    So what would those 12 million new jobs actually have to pay each year to clear the deficit? At a 25 percent income tax rate, $433,333 a year. Nice work if you can get it.

    How many Etch-a-Sketches has Romney gone through? I’m still waiting for Rush’s head to explode trying to wrap his brain around Romney’s 47% walk back.

    -
    Relentless assault of lies: expected.
    Considered a success: shocking!
    -
    Unless that is what Americans want. War, huge taxes on the poor and middle class, and a free ride for the 1%; the job creators that don’t create jobs in America. Don’t invest in America, but hoard in bank accounts overseas.

    Sad to say, you have it right. It is better to have the truth and know what you will get instead of lies and deceit and not know what you will get.

    @SusanCraig

    I hope you saw that Obama interupted Lerher also. We didn’t get a professor but instead got the Media and the left telling the right to go away and let the country fall into a fiscal anomaly in order to let everyone without to also have what those who are fortunate that do have. I have never been relunctant to vote for someone who will work to budget this country out of where we have come. Whether it be Republican, Democrat or 3rd party.

    @SusanCraig and Radish….your skewed leftwing versions are false, and the majority of viewers disagree with what you claim.
    -
    Obama began on Question #1 to filibuster, and spoke 4 minutes more than Romney in the 90 minute debate…causing moderator Lehrer to omit the final segment he had planned…
    -
    Obama’s “performance” was like a culprit dragged to the Principle’s office…hangdog, looking at the floor, making notes, smirking, and 3 times repeating the lie that Romney’s Plan was for Billions of tax cuts for the Rich….an outright lie, and he is still repeating it in his campaign stops, where Romney hasn’t a chance to defend himself, like a BULLY and a COWARD that cannot attack an opponent in a more equal setting like a debate.
    …. Obama’s false claims to budgets that “save money” have been proven unbelievable….using double-counting in both “savings” and “spending” plans…..even CBO analysis proved that.
    …Romney plans a REVENUE NEUTRAL reform of tax rates by lowering the rates and eliminating the loopholes that are mostly used by the “Rich” taxpayers….with congress which is responsible for the legislation, Romney plans adjustments to keep revenues to a lower % of GDP because 4 years of Obama have sent that % skyrocketing!
