Romney Goes On Offense, Pays For It In First Wave Of Fact Checks

Here is a sample of what's being reported about the truthiness of what Obama and Romney had to say Wednesday night on stage at the University of Denver:


One of the biggest disputes was over tax cuts. Obama argued that Romney's plan to stimulate the economy includes a tax cut totaling $5 trillion that, Obama said, isn't possible because the Republican nominee is also promising to spend money in other places.

Romney flatly disputed that number. "First of all, I don't have a $5 trillion tax cut," he said.

Who's right? The Washington Post's Fact Checker says the facts on this one are on Obama's side. The New York Times notes that Romney "has proposed cutting all marginal tax rates by 20 percent which would in and of itself cut tax revenue by $5 trillion."

FactCheck.org has weighed in too, tweeting during the debate that "Romney says he will pay for $5T tax cut without raising deficit or raising taxes on middle class. Experts say that's not possible."

I bet it would blow his mind to point out that Obama flubed some numbers as well.

A little 'deflect and divert' action to draw attention away from the numerous Romney lies?

Poor trolls, HE likes GUYS who lie...



Trolls <quoted text>OK Slew, I am a liar.
I have probably lied thousands of times in my life, care to elaborate on which one you are talking about?

FYI... Dishonesty is stating you have a document, then admitting you don't...!

Interesting how in that article you provided the link for everyone of Obamas claims are at least part true. As for Romneys claims, only one was part true all the rest are lies.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows President Obama attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns the vote from 47%. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided..

AND THIS IS AFTER THE DEBATES!

And this is the Republican biased Rasmussen poll!

These conservative morons think that after one debate Mit Wit can make up 10 points in Ohio. All Obama has to do is hold Ohio and win one more swing state and its over.
