    I've been complaining to people that everyone seems to have missed that Romney told 2 lies regarding the attack. The first lie about President Obama going to Las Vegas the day after is important because Romney was trying to paint the president as heartless.

    And for those painting him as Bush 3, Romney is far more dangerous because he's ignorant. Romney will get us involved in a war in Iran that would have far wider implications than Iraq or Afghanistan. Likewise, Romney has no concept about economics and he isn't willing to listen to others. Even Romney knows that Bain didn't create jobs because he admitted that in a brief moment of clarity and honesty.

      I tend to agree about Willard's ignorance, although he is much more willing to learn than W. ever was--he was just along for the ride because he had the name George Bush, Jr.

      I think Romney is much more dangerous, as he has a world-class ego to match his heartless streak.

        In fact, and although this isn't strictly about that debate, I want to say again something I have not seen often enough here:

        No president should have the stupendous known wealth and the unknown network of other ongoing and massive questionable investments held secretly in who knows how many places that he has. His history of working with the Russian government to set up tobacco sales and offer other Bain-type "business guidance" is also unconcionable.

        All these acts continue to carry with them undisclosed and very likely deeply linked questionable and almost certainly illegal and secret connections to dozens of corporations and governments around the world.

        Putting someone like this at the head of our government would be a criminal act.
