Finally Mitt Romney takes the stage and shows a superior command of the facts. President Obama has never been challenged by the mainstream media regarding his statements. After millions of dollars portraying his opponent as greedy, uncaring and dishonest, the real Romney has dispelled all these myths.
The liberal media had to admit that Mr. Romney is extremely knowledgeable, bold and presidential and puts forward an agenda that will decrease unemployment, reduce the deficit, fix the economy and repeal and replace Obamacare with a more reasonable plan.
In contrast, Pres. Obama asks us to give him four more years of the same questionable policies.

President Obama’s loosey-goosey performance in his first debate against Mitt Romney was a punch in the gut to all Democratic candidates fighting to win their congressional races, and help secure a Democratic majority in the House as well as the Senate. He should be reminded — repeatedly — that their fate, as well as his presidency, is on the line.

At the debate Mitt Romney said his primary focus would be creating jobs by lowering taxes. But when Pres. Obama insisted those tax cuts would cost $5 trillion, Gov. Romney said he would also eliminate enough tax deductions so the tax rate cut wouldn’t cost the government anything.
Talk about masterful jugglery: Lower tax rates and eliminate deductions so the total taxes paid is the same, but if we pay the same in taxes, how will that leave cash in the economy to create jobs?

Well, now I’ve seen the first debate and I’m duly unimpressed. I’m going to vote for Fane Lozman and his running-mate, Norman Braman.

It was quite interesting to hear Gov. Romney say that the mostly Democratic Massachusetts legislature worked well with him in getting his “Romneycare” medical plan in place.
However, he was not confronted with the leading member of the legislature saying that he would make sure Romney would be a one-term governor because he’s a Republican, such as was said by the leading U.S. senator to Pres. Obama.
Romney was not confronted with a do-nothing opposition as Pres. Obama has had to deal with. Apparently Pres. Obama was too much of a gentleman to mention all of this during the debate.
