Nice try,,,,The focus of this "win" has become centered on Romney's lies. Mitt Romney told enough lies last night to make your head spin. When his lies become the focus of the entire debate Romney loses. Lol...He disavowed his own policies.<quoted text>
He lied about nothing. Rather, he exposed the lies you bought for the last four years.
Last night was, if anything, a definite game changer.
Will Romney's debate lies become the story?
Gergen on CNN: President Obama was Surprised Romney Was Lying..........
Gergen on CNN:– David Gergen on CNN - President Obama thrown off his game because Mitt Romney was flat out lying....
Rolling Stone's Tim Dickinson:
Mitt Romney turned in a polished performance in last night's presidential debate – and revealed himself to be an accomplished and unapologetic liar. In an evening where he sought to slice and dice the president with statistics, Romney baldly misrepresented his own policy prescriptions, made up numbers to fit his attacks and buried clear contrasts with the president.
Romney won the debate in no small part because he adopted a policy of simply lying about his policies. Probably the best way to understand Obama's listless performance is that he was prepared to debate the claims Romney has been making for the entire campaign, and Romney switched up and started making different and utterly bogus ones.
Romney's critics should probably keep expectations low, but if this line of criticism starts to catch on, it could step on the Republican's post-debate glow. In fact, the tactics that led to the win could even backfire, doing more harm than good.
Seven hour later, the focus has shifted, and the president's allies are far more focused on Romney's dishonesty.
"Paul Ryan's convention speech wound up being covered mainly for its mendacity, and that became the story. It seems that there are at least as many factually challenged comments from Romney's debate performance as there were in Ryan's speech."
It's a dynamic worth watching.
