Roney was a bloviting, mendcious bully. President Obama was real person with a
presidential, tatesmanlike bearing. Romney proved himself unworthy of the
persidency, and gave the President a LOT of material to use in ads demonstrating
that fact. Romney clearly showed that he is NOT what the country needs.
Yes, but the problem is that he is having a terrible headache the next morning.
The problem appears to be with the facts missing in his previous night's
statements. Be it tax policy, financial regulations, Social Security, Medicare,
or Big Bird, he opened his mouth and said what he thought needed to be said
regardless of the truth.He claimed he was not going to reduce the
tax burden on the rich without saying that he wanted a 20% cut in taxes
across-the-board for ALL people. Also, he neglected to talk about the key issue
he promotes: eliminating the estate tax. So multi-milliolnaires will see at
least a huge savings in their taxes, but will allowed to pass their money on to
their children for free as an unearned income benefit. This latter savings only
affects the rich because 99% of the American people are not liable for estate
taxes.Oh, and yes, he would eliminate capital gains taxes which
benefits primarily the wealthy. This would fit Romney well since all his income
comes from capital gains, hence his tax burden going forward would be zilch!So things don't look so good the morning after.
Obama had more time than Romney. The article was written by someone from
CHICAGO. The polls are showing that Obama LOST the debate. He had no answers
for today's hard questions.
A good night? A - yes I would say a good night is a massive understatement. This
was a game changer for Romney. 60 million people saw Mitt vs Obama and the
contrast was night and day. Mitt was "the man" and Obama looked like a
guy in a super market check out that lost his wallet. Holy smokes - what a tail
kicking!! Obama is ... well what most folks thought he was... an IMPOSTER!!! Oh
wait - MSNBC says it was the Denver altitude!!
Obama doesn't even know what the national debt is. It's ~$16 bil, not
$10 bil. Had Romney made that gaff the press would have been all over it. That
because he doesn't care and used that issue only to criticize Bush in 2008.
