Once again, Obama spoke longer than Romney, but Romney used more words than Obama.

That stuttering tripped him up again.

I disagree! Libya was something that Obama did not lay to rest. We all know we heard about a video for 8 days. No knock out there.
I just read the transcript of Obama's speech in the Rose Garden. He did refer to terrorism, but he did not say that it was a terrorist attack. He refered to religious intollerance, which would refer to the video because the video was against their religious leader. Now if he knew that it was a terrorist attack:

1) why did he then go on a talk show instead of dealing with the situation?
2) why did he then change the story to it being about a video?
3) why didn't he secure the crime scene and get people in there to investigate?
4) why did he allow his administration to continue to blame a video?

It's actually worse for him that he DID know that it was an act of terrorism and the only thing that he did about it was to invent a cover-up.

How many jobs did president nobama send to China? The solar panel jobs? The assembly jobs for government motors?
No answer expected, just more bullmanure.

Rmoney sent jobs to China by bankrupting American companies then robbing the pensions and depositing them in his numerous Cayman Island bank accounts.

Mitt's quotes o the night:
Libya.......lost in the woods! "He did?" "He said that?" "Well ok......"
"They brought in women in binders." <----- WTF!
"Yes. I did change my mind."
Flip flop!
10th Paragraph of a 13 paragraph speech.

***No acts of terror*** will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.

Then for 14 days he blamed a video. So where does it say Libya was an act of terror. But one thing for sure we know the O'bama admin blamed the video. Susan Rice blamed the video 5 times in one day on Sunday shows.

O'bama lied and lied some more. WTH. Is the video the terrorist he was talking about. The American people heard it will their own lying eyes?

<quoted text>You failed to include the note below your quote

"(Note: we added this statement to the timeline after Josh Gerstein of Politico asserted that the phrasing “acts of terror” showed Obama acknowledged “terrorism” was behind the attack. From our many years of covering diplomacy we would say there is a world of difference, but readers can draw their own conclusions.)

Is it true that Romney did a little fund raising in China and other foreign countries? Of course,little here is located on a heavily skewed scale. If he accepted foreign money for his campaign, would he be ineligible to serve as POTUS if elected.
Also, if elected, would Romneys Presidential oath take precedent over his vow to obey Grover Norquists budget requirements? Or would that be another conflict of interests?
And then there are Romneys Tea Party obligations. Where would they fit in his grand scheme as POTUS?
These are questions that I hope he is asked at the debate this evening because it is important for voters to know exactly where Romneys loyalties lie and in their specific order of commitment.
So many back room (or has he calls them quiet room) deals, so little public information!
Well, two out of three aint bad (maybe all three depending on how inclusive Obama intended with his China challenges).
&fe ature=related

Obama ruled by not letting Romney get away with his bait-and-switch strategy and somehow managed to do it without using the word liar.

Romney looked appropriately like a shamed school boy when Obama reprimanded him for politicizing the embassy attack while it was still in the acute stage.

He would bankrupt you, send your job to China and deposit your pension into one of his offshore bank accounts. He would give your lawnmower to the illegal Mexican who landscapes one of his many exclusive vacation homes.

You guys cannot wipe out what was stated for 8 days over a throw away comment that even WaPo questions as showing Obama says it was terrorist attack.

He got away with "tweeking" the truth about the Rose Garden comment tonight in this "soft format" debate - not so much next week when the debate will be focused entirely on foreign policy.
