    It was rather amusing to see Romney re-invent himself once again. Suddenly he is Mr. Bipartisan, the pragmatic realist, denying everything he has said on the campaign trail until now, and blandly maintaining mathematical impossibilities. I particularly like the manner in which he maintained that the Romneycare he instituted in Massachusetts, designed by the Heritage Foundation, was a great idea when a state did it, and simultaneously a terrible idea when the nation does it and it is called Obamacare.

    Here’s a Heritage Foundation Fellow on the subject of Obamacare:

    Moderators should be given a button that lowers sound a little and if the speaker doesn’t get the hint, a little more, and then if needed, off. Both men did poorly, however…

    “If you say he speaks a lie, and you know he speaks the truth, you have lied. If you say he speaks the truth and you know he lies, you have lied. If you say he speaks a lie and you know he lies, you have been truthful.” I can’t find the author of that mangled quote, but I was reminded of it, again, as I listened to a political debate. Where was the Romney from the primary debates? The Romney who ran for president in 2008? The Romney who was Governor of Mass.? How about the Romney raising funds while disparaging the 47%.

      I can only hope, if he wins, he will go back to being the moderate republican he was in Mass. It could happen. I have no idea who the man is, he’s had too many positions on too few issues.
      concernedly,

    If Mr Romney was lying, Obama should have called him on it. Obama never said Mr Romney was lying, only the libdems.


    Romney knows that, when a business is losing money, it is essential, no matter how painful it is, to slash revenues and increase costs. He’ll cut taxes and send troops to stop the Iranian nuclear project, and this will put the budget into a massive surplus. And Romney was a successful businessman, so he understands these things, unlike the Community Organiser who doesn’t, and who thinks you solve a budget crisis by increasing revenue and cutting costs. What an idiot the Community Organiser is, since he has no business experience, he has no idea how an organization goes about balancing its budget.


    And, after this debate, I think Romney will probably win. He looked very presidential and sexy, and the majority of voters are women who vote for the candidate who gives then the big O when they pull the lever in the voting booth. And by ‘the big O’ I do NOT mean the big Obama.

    Mitt should have been tested for amphetamines.

    We saw willard the bully last night. One of the facets of his true self that he hides. That smirk he had on his face only went to show how pleased he was with himself in that role. Never mind that everything he said was the opposite what he told the crowd at the CONinvention. He has no scruples. he will say anything to anyone to win, because that is all that really matters to him. What he actually plans to do if he gets into office will always be a mystery.
    .
    Did Obama lose this debate ? Yes. But a lot of what willard said last night will come back to bite him in the Ass, and there are two debates to go.

    What reinvention. Obama worked with the Democrats in the office of Governor, he also said while Governor that it is a state issue.

    On average, since 1976, the challenging-party candidate gained one and a half percentage points on the incumbent-party candidate. But no candidate trailing by as much as Mitt Romney heading into the first debate went on to win.

    Well even though the moderator gave BHO four extra minutes and so he might have deserved the collateral damaged.. but it was the moderator’s own Lib friends that are attacking him more…

    Great cartoon, especially the ref on the ground.

    I agree Romney ‘won’ a debate. My question is, which Romney will we see should he win an election.
    My comment was that both men violated the ‘rules’ of the debate and the moderator was helpless.
    Accept it and move on? Of course. Can YOU?

    What’s with the ref being on the ground? The president talked longer than Romney. This cartoonist is the most unrealistic, whining leftist of the many leftist cartoonists. Demonizing the opponent by making yourself a victim is the most unattractive personality trait a person can display. What an utter loser.
