Romney Wins—America Loses
The Plan Romney seems to have forgotten—maybe he should check his own website occasionally.
Commentary: All the hype surrounding last nights debate suggests that Romney outperformed Obama. If that is the perception—then America is the loser in the debate. It doesn't seem to matter that what Romney spewed almost non stop was one lie after the other.
If lies—thrump truth—then we have sunk to a new low for taking the measure of a man's character and his fitness to hold the Office of President.
If telling America the truth makes Obama the loser then this nation is irretrievably lost.
Romney's opening was that he didn't have a tax plan that would reduce taxes across the board by twenty percent and that it would cost five trillion dollars over ten years. His own website talks about that exact plan. Tax | Mitt Romney for President
That is only one of the multitude of lies Romney told the American people—someone calculated that Romney told 27 lies in 38 minutes. How do you counter that many lies in one and two minute rebuttals?
America deserves more than a Presidential candidate who's entire campaign is built on brazen mendacity—and bait and switch electioneering—that is geared to each audience he is addressing at any given time. In Boca Raton he reveals to his rich donors—his real feelings towards half of the American electorate and refers to them with utter contempt as moochers and victims. At the debate he relates stories of that same 47% with a new found fake compassion and feigned empathy. His only ambition is to become President in order to tear down the social network he hates and reward his fat cat capitalist cronies—and he will say anything towards that end.
The only thing Romney should have won last night was our contempt, in the same measure with which he holds at least 47% of the American people.
