  •  This "he never called Romney out" meme is dead (7+ / 0-)

    wrong.

    He called Romney out on lies about Taxes, Medicare, HCR etc.

    Romney continued to lie, and at that point how many times can the president say "You have said over and over you are doing a $5 trillion tax cut for rich people."

    All he can do is wait for us and the media post-debate to point out that yes, Mitt was lying about his tax plan.

    When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.

    •  It's not "dead", much as some... (0+ / 0-)

      ...may wish it to be. Show me an example of Obama calling out Romney on a lie, and I'll show you a textbook example of how not to do it. That's something you learn in 9th grade debate class.

      To the low-information dolts who'll nevertheless be choosing in November, all the post-debate honesty here and elsewhere won't mean a damn thing. Obama's greatest and best chance to set the record straight was during the debate. He failed to do it.

      Look, I realize the pain of Obama's disastrous outing it difficult for some to accept, but it was a truly awful and disappointing performance. And if Nitwit Romney somehow wins, there'll be tons of introspection, but the fingers of history will point at last Wednesday as the the moment Obama blew the lead, blew the save, blew the game...

      Cogito. Ergo sum ​​atheus.
