My bullshit meter was off the goddamn scale, man. Romney straight up lied, so many times.
And the President didn’t challenge him at all!
Romney lied about the facts, about his own plans, about his own history, about his record in Massachusetts…. and we got nothing from Obama.
Obama, for fuck’s sake, push back.
He can’t. Biden can beat up Ryan & no one will bat an eye at what he says, but Obama’s a black man already in a position of power. Any push back will just make Romney the underdog standing up to the uppity…well you know the rest.
I think Obama could’ve called out those lies without breaking his calm—there were just some EASY ones in there (I’m boggling that he didn’t even contest Romney saying he cut $716 billion from Medicare when actually he cut COSTS, not BENEFITS… and Mitt must’ve pulled that lie out half a dozen times).
That said, he does have to check himself and bend over backward not to appear even a little aggressive or the media makes him pay for it. I’m watching the analysis now and even on MSNBC Romney is being CELEBRATED for the shitty, bullying, unacceptable way he carried himself in the debate. He was extremely rude and no one is mentioning it. If Obama had behaved the same way he’d have been lambasted from both sides for being an angry black man. It’s infuriating.
