Watching msnbc this morning post debate, they gave this round to Romney, even said O can't handle himself without a TelePrompter. Looks like the rats are starting to jump off this sinking ship! It's about time.

Romney literally changed positions on some key issues in the middle of the debate. I'm sure the president was prepared to discuss the existing policy positions Romney has stated, but Romney just decided to write new policies on the spot. Hard to shoot down Romney's claims without a moment to verify his statements.

Romney's Tax plan calls for eliminating the Estate Tax. The Estate Tax is a tax on wealth transfer after you die. But it doesn't even start until after $3.5 Million. Romney's plan literally eliminates the estate tax, which is literally a tax cut for the very wealthy only. His plan also makes a bold statement of a 20% across the board tax cut for everyone, including the wealthy. Except that he says the wealthy will still end up paying the same amount because he promises to close loopholes for the rich. Of course, his plan doesn't say which loopholes.

Yet in the debate, Romney says "he wouldn’t cut taxes on the wealthy."

He is just making stuff up to win his arguments. It might work during the debate, but it will be exposed immediately following and will be very hard to defend in following debates.

Having had to pay an estate tax (twice actually) the above statement is complete horse sh*t.

You are correct.
That sort of sounds like the tax credit Romney didn't receive for sending job overseas. Maybe you need a new accountant. Liberals will lie about anything to help the loser president.
