Obama can't think straight. He needs that teleprompter, without it he is lost. He couldn't concentrate on the subjects at hand. He had bad notes. I bet h e tries to get out og the other debates.

Obama's Stuttering now as he LIES about cuts in spending. How in the Hell can anyone claim they cut spending when they Increased the Deficit by a Trillion Dollars and Increased the National Debt by $5 Trillion Dollars!
He increased government spending by 1.7%. Leas than any president since eisenhower. The simple fact is, the government didn't grow, the governments revenue shrunk!

If he had cut spending enough to cover the decrease in revenue, we would be in an economic disaster at the moment. Yes, even worse than we are now!

A little good news for Obama after this debate though: a CBS News snap poll on who won the debate shows:
Romney 46%
Obama 26%
Tie 38%
Combine Obama’s 26% with tied 38% and Romney missed out on a big win, WOW!
And if you give Obama an extra 10 points for every day ending with a 'Y'...

LOL

Seriously, you're spin is desperate.

WASHINGTON -- Television viewers' snap judgments of the first presidential debate favored Mitt Romney, according to two "instant reaction" polls and a focus group conducted during and immediately after the candidates met in Denver.

CBS News, which as in past elections and presidential addresses used the GfK's KnowledgePanel representative Internet panel to interview 523 uncommitted voters...

Respondents were unambiguous about who won. By a 46 percent to 22 percent margin, the poll's uncommitted voters said they thought Romney won. After the debate, 56 percent said they had a better opinion of Romney, 11 percent had a worse opinion and 32 percent reported their opinion was unchanged.

CNN, which polled 430 adults ... also found clear evidence of a Romney victory. The survey found that 67 percent thought Romney won the debate, while only 25 percent said they thought Obama won.

Flip rmoney is a very good politician. Which some would equate with being a convincing liar. And what's up with all the interupting and cutting off the moderator? Fools actually believe the tax hiding flip-flopper because he "sounds" convincing. And he looks the part. Brilliant reason to vote for the guy.

Smutt's taxes are really around 9%. He did not (yet) take the full deduction from his latest taxes so he can continue to say he did not pay less than the 13% or so. He will get it back later.

The lying scumbag also said that he took every dollar of deduction he is entitled to or he shouldn't be POTUS. Yeah, he shouldn't be POTUS because he is a filthy, lying scumbag.

He really doesn't care about deductibility since he believes that capital is better than human labor. He denigrates all of humanity with that attitude.

His income, nearly 100% from investments, would be taxes at essentially ZERO so deductions aren't that important for him. He is really eyeing estate taxes so he can avoid paying for any of society's resources that he fully uses.

He sent an army of lawyers to reduce his property taxes in California. He doesn't want to pay for anything...he wants everyone else to pay his bills for him.

That's Mitt. That's why people despise the filthy creep.

Romney's litany of lies:

- gas prices
- green energy investments
- pre existing conditions
- RomneyCare and ObamaCare
- claims all the credit for Massachusetts schools to the shock of Mass.
- claims success in Mass when he left it with a 34% approval rating
- claim bipartisanship when Democrats despised him

Romney has shown himself to be a pathetic losing liar. He is a sociopath out to destroy the USA for his own amusement and to fatten his own pocketbook.

Get a load of Romney's flop sweat and this astonishing pathological lie:

"The second topic, which is you said you get a deduction for getting a plant overseas. Look, I've been in business for 25 years. I have no idea what you're talking about. I maybe need to get a new accountant."

Romney declares war on toddlers.

"Romney 2012. Soft on Wall Street..... Tough on Sesame Street.

Obama killed Osama Bin Laden. Romney wants to kill Big Bird. I think that says enough.

Move over Angry Birds. Big Bird is here, and he's pissed."
