    THIS is exactly as I saw this debate. And exactly as I see Romney. Frankly, I can't believe what a liar he is. I'm not kidding now. I've seen Republicans lie and lie and lie, but never like this, and never with such shameless glee. It was sickening. If I were an undecided voter, Romney would have lost the Hell out of that debate after the fact checkers went to work.

    Because I won't forget GWB lying about the Weapons of Mass Destruction thing. Ever. And I think Romney would have delivered that yet better. Now, we have all this stuff brewing with Iran's nuclear programs, Libya, and the embassy attacks. I don't see Romney batting an eyelash lying to us about these things, for whatever reason and whatever personal gain.

    And that scares me.

    Obama knows what he's up against now. I saw Axelrod talking about it, and I could see your assessment in his eyes about Romney's atypical, sociopathic mendacity.

    Not to mention that shit about Big Bird.

      red herring in this fight. Yes, Sesame Street could probably get plenty of sponsors, but what about programs like Frontline? Someone said that ending the funding for PBS is like trying to lose weight by clipping your fingernails.

      Republicans don't like PBS because every once in a while a liberal idea actually does get presented in a fair way. PBS has done this country more good than the Washington Monument, but you don't hear them calling for chopping off the budget for that.

      Eliminate tax breaks that stimulate the offshoring of jobs.

        not control it...YET!  The massed attack in Congress to "defund" it was all about intimidation to force some acquiescence.
