View Diary: Debate advice for President Obama: Mitt Romney will tell a lot of lies, and you must refute them (303 comments)

  •  "Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics" (5+ / 0-)

    Is what my Statistics professor drilled into our heads.

    Still, it isn't the "lies" themselves that matter, but their magnitude and whether they fall into the "damned" category.

    When no refutation accompanies a lie, what is one to think?

    When that line is crossed, not refuting them gives them credence.

    It is that wave of credence that Romney rode out of the debate.

    Obama must not let that happen again.

    What separates us, divides us, and diminishes the human spirit.

    •  A simple "that is not true" will put (0+ / 0-)

      Romney in the position of trying to prove that it is.  Obama should counter each and every time Romney tries to with another lie.  Romney will grow more and more irritated and flustered, especially when he runs out of his pre-rehearsed talking points. He may even have to resort to asking Obama what is untrue about it--and Obama can tell him.  It is not rocket science.
