Debate Analysis: Who Lied?

Everyone is talking about the Presidential debate on Wednesday. Many say Mitt Romney won the debate. Romney stood up straight. Looked at the camera. Walked all over Jim Lehrer, the mousy moderator. He did all these things well.
President Obama looked down frequently. He often shook his head when Romney continued to reverse his previous positions and make false claims. His worst offense was not looking at the Camera and speak to the camera -- which ultimately is us, the American people.
From this perspective, Romney did win.
When it comes to content, however, Romney lost. He lied about so many things. His top 3 lies:
1. Pre-Existing Conditions

2. No Tax Cuts for the Rich
3. Medicare Cuts
Pre-Existing Conditions: Romney said HIS plan includes providing for people with pre-existing conditions. That's a LIE. Yesterday his Top Advisor Eric Fehrstrom admitted it. He said that Romney plans to REPEAL Obamacare which includes pre-existing conditions, closing the donut hole and ending coverage for children 22 - 26.
Romney's plan is to let the states decide what to do about enforcing carriers to cover pre-existing conditions. This leaves sick people in a lurch! (more on pre-existing)
2. No Tax Cuts for the Rich: Over and over and over again, Romney has promised to deliver a 20% tax cut which will primarily benefit the top 1%. Independent analysis groups have determined this equals $5 Trillion dollars. AND he admits paying for it by eliminating the mortgage deductions, which primarily benefits the middle class. He is giving the American people a double whammy and videos of his past campaign events prove it!
3. Medicare Cuts: Romney LIED and said the $716B in savings our President is saving from Healthcare providers impacts Medicare recipients. (Big Lie)

His supporters say about Mitt's Flip Flopping is just typical Campaign strategy and politics -- it is OK to LIE.

The reality is: The American People are WISE to Romney. WE THE PEOPLE KNOW HE LIED! I believe that our President Barack Obama did NOT want to be confrontational during this first debate and allowed Romney to jeopardize himself with all of his LIES.

Additionally, he knew by being deferential, his supporters and the American Public would DEMAND that he confront Romney for all of his LIES in the next two debates. Now, the Republicans CANNOT accuse our President of being an "Angry Black Man" because the American Public are DEMANDING that President Obama confront Romney for ALL of his LIES. Now, WE THE PEOPLE are ALL in strong support, UNISON in saying, "Please, Mr. President. Confront Romney FOR ALL OF HIS LIES and WE THE PEOPLE will NOT allow anyone to say that you are an Angry Black Man."

Candy Crowley is the Moderator for the next debate. She certainly will NOT be overrun by Romney as Jim Lehrer was. I believe Our President will BRING HIS GAME to the next debate. WE THE PEOPLE Support You!

The Hill : Weekly tracking poll from Latino Decisions : Obama jumped from the 65-26 percent advantage he held six weeks ago among Latino Voters to a record mark of 73-21 percent lead over Mitt Romney - The new 52-point margin

The Failure of the Racist Plutocracy and Social Darwinism that Romney and Ryan are offering for America among Latino Voters. This happens as they become knowledgeable of the Romney Hypocrisy of pandering to Latinos at the same time that he wants to kick 12 million Latinos out of the USA by the most despicable method of "Self-Deportation".

Mitt Romney has also said that "Arizona is a model for the nation" in the treatment of Latinos. And that he would repeal the "DREAM ACT" that favors people that were brought to the USA as Children and know no other nation and probably no other language different from English.

And has been in bed with the worst racists of America that are his supporters or part of his campaign : Jan Brewer, Pete Wilson, Kris Kobach, Joe Arpaio, Russell Pearce and the most Racist ( Republican ) Elements of the U. S. Congress.

There was never a U. S. Politician so much disliked by the Latino Voters.


The Hill
Poll: Obama's lead with Latinos jumping to historic high

Some excerpts :


President Obama holds a 73-21 percent lead over Mitt Romney among Latino voters, a new high-water mark for the president.

The new 52-point margin represents a high watermark for Obama in the weekly tracking poll from Latino Decisions, and is a significant jump from the 65-26 percent advantage he held six weeks ago.

Romney has failed to make inroads despite a push at the GOP convention to highlight Hispanic Republicans, while Latino voters who have tuned in during the period shortly before and since the conventions have mostly gravitated towards Obama.

Obama is polling a higher percentage in the poll than the 67 percent of the Latino vote he won four years ago, when GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) won 31 percent, according to exit polls.

Romney himself said at a private fundraiser earlier this year that his campaign was "doomed" if it couldn't make inroads with Hispanic voters, who make up a significant — and fast-growing — chunk of the population in key swing states including Florida, Nevada and Colorado.
