Upon Further Review: Mitt Romney May
Have Cheated To Win The Debate

CBS News (DC), by Bill Buck

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 10/5/2012 3:54:42 PM

Over the past day the game tape of the debate has been reviewed. While Mitt Romney still enjoys the afterglow of the debate, the lies and half truths he told are being dissected. From tax policy to hiring teachers. From cracking down on Wall Street (and Sesame Street) to coverage for the uninsured. From Medicare to shipping jobs overseas the fact checkers have been very busy correcting the record and pointing out falsehoods. Even Team Romney had to correct the candidate on health care immediately after the debate.

Comments:
Democrat shill trying hard. "Cheat sheet" was really a handkerchief according to BuzzFeed.

I remember back in '04 they said Bush had a mysterious hump on his back that was a radio transmitter of some sort, feeding him the answers. Don't these people ever realize how silly they look?

They're calling people who question the bogus jobs numbers the "new truthers". I see they don't have as much derision for the hankie truth squad.

We'll see how bizarre it gets when Andrew Sullivan gets involved.

The gist of this goofy guy's complaint is that:

Romney needed a cheat sheet to remember his lies.

The people who haven't decided how they will vote and those who were not engaged in the political discussion until watching the debates are not following these "fact check" stories. They saw Romney kick Obama's rear and that's the end of the story. Perhaps they will tune in for another debate round. Hopefully they won't miss Biden's upcoming comedy routine.

The Obama camp has spent the summer, ever since it became apparent that Romney would be the nominee, “defining” Romney. They did such an thorough job that they themselves believed it as well as their minions and surrogates. When Romney showed up for the debate and presented the real Romney to the nation, Obama was flummoxed – the chair was kicked out from under him. Now since Romney has said things opposite of what the Obama camp wants him to say, they call him a liar.
The accusation of “liar” is one of the most vile on earth. Lying has been the tactic of the whole Obama campaign and I make that accusation in full acknowledgement of the preceding sentence (see Axelrod, Gibbs, Cutter, Carney, Reid ...).

Lets give this all the credit it deserves: "Bill Buck is a Democratic strategist, President of the Buck Communications Group, a media relations and new media strategies consulting business based in Washington" The real question is: Is this a legitimate 'commentary' article, or another case of CBS offering its decidedly pro-Obama slant nestled into a 'news' article?

I thought the most hilarious "explanation" for why Øbama got his butt kicked in the debate came from Algore. It was the al-ti-tude! You see, the poor weakling Øbama couldn't adjust to the Denver altitude so he got confused and incoherent during the debate! Poor wittle Øbama. If he's that weak I don't want him around the pResidency.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Berkeley, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen.

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image.

"Women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work," President Obama said last week to a group of women who serve in the U.S. Congress. With this in mind, he is now planning a "White House Summit on Working Families" to take place this summer. Obama is no doubt preparing to cast stones at the private sector. He really ought to look at his own administration. Since Obama has been in office, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management, the percentage of women in the civilian federal work force

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
