Debate ain’t just something you put on a fishhook, but with all the lies flying around, it smelled as bad during the last one.
Obama said the Benghazi incident in Libya was a terror attack: Pardon me for beginning with the most blatant assault on your senses. No he did not say that & he knows he’s lying! And by the way, the UN Ambassador, Rice is not part of the State Department; so who, if not Obama, sent her out to continually lie about the attack being caused by a silly video that no one saw?
The president is Mr. Energy: This would be a real knee slapper it weren’t so serious. Obama is enemy number one to the energy sector and he knows it, with the wholesale closings of coal plants, lawsuits against gas producers and oil producers and moratoriums on drilling and exploration of public lands. Mitt Romney was 100% correct regarding his facts on Obama’s record for both oil production and coal.
Mitt Romney has investments in China: Yes he does and as he stated so does Obama, as well as millions of other American citizens. And there is no larger investor in China than GM, Government Motors, Barack’s poster child for government bailouts, where 7 out of 10 of their manufacturing plants are in China. You like apples, UAW? How do you like them apples?
Middle Class tax cuts: He told us he would cut our taxes and he did. Obama has not cut mine or your taxes. Tax cuts are not rebates or temporary tax holidays. When one says, “I will cut your taxes”, the other hears and understands, my tax rate will be cut. Obama has done no such thing, nor will he.
Romney’s Taxes:When Obama said,” Mr. Romney thinks it’s fair to pay a lower tax rate than a nurse or bus driver”, Barack is either stupid or lying. Since we all know “The One” is
a genius, he must be a liar. Anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of tax policy would know that capital gains and dividends are always taxed at a lower rate than is regular income. Why? It’s simple. Capital gains and other investment incomes are actually double taxed. The money is first taxed as income and then that income is invested and taxed again. Sounds fair, eh?
Obama wants equal time to speak during the Debate: Well, he didn’t get it. In fact, in all three debates; the 2 presidential and 1 V.P. event, the democrat candidate had more time than his republican challenger. Obama had a full 10% more time during the last debate. So when John Candy-Crowley told Barack, he’d get his chance to speak, she wasn’t kidding.
We didn’t lose a dime bailing out the banks: Wrongo! Pants on Fire! The same day Obama made that statement the CBO confirmed we lost $24 billion taxpayer dollars on the bank bailouts.
Barack administration created 5 million new jobs during his great recovery: That sounds great but he neglected one important thing; to subtract all the jobs that were lost. Just a minor detail, I know. That’s like saying the Patriots scored 23 points last week. That’s fabulous until you add up the points the Seahawks scored, which were 24.
Barack saved General Motors, while Romney wanted to force them into bankruptcy: In fact government motors did go through a managed bankruptcy guided by the Obama administration and their cronies, which left most investors including the bondholders with virtually nothing. Mitt Romney knows, and so, I’m sure, does Barack Obama, that a standard corporate bankruptcy is not an automatic death sentence for the company. It simply allows them to write off debt and restructure thus becoming more competitive and able to survive. One doesn’t close the door and fire everybody just because they go through bankruptcy, and Obama, no doubt, knows this. Oh by the way, GM stills owes the taxpayers in excess of $35 billion and we will never see it!
Equal pay for women: Fun fact: Women who work on Obama’s own staff make a minimum of 18% less than their male counterparts.
