    “The fact is that more people have been put on food stamps by Barack Obama than any president in American history.” — Gingrich
    We have examined this issue before, giving Gingrich a Pinocchio for this statement.
    This is an example of taking a fact — an all-time high for food stamp recipients — and taking it out of context. The president is struggling with the aftermath of an economic situation he inherited, while building on food stamp changes that preceded his tenure.

    Did you vote for Harry Reid when you lived in Nevada?

    “The most extraordinary thing that’s happened with this military authorization is the president’s planning on cutting a trillion dollars out of military spending.”
    — Romney



    Romney failed to mention that this figure is the result of a budget deal reached with Republican leaders — and that Obama has said he will seek to achieve the required deficit reduction though other means (ie. higher taxes).

    “We’ve got a president in office three years, and he does not have a jobs plan yet.”
    — Romney



    This is a strange comment, given that President Obama has just spent several months demanding that Congress pass his jobs plan.

    “I was also proud of the fact that we balanced the budget every year I was in office. We reduced taxes 19 times.”
    — Romney



    Somehow, he always fails to mention that, in order to balance the budget, he created hundreds of millions of dollars worth of new fees and closed as much as $1.5 billion worth of corporate tax loopholes.

    HIS jobs plan? Does he actually have one? If he does, he should give Congress one that they feel they can pass....sounds to me like he's not working with them like he should. And, i've heard there are quite a few bills sitting in the Senate collecting dust. Are they still on vacation there, or are they still playing games?

    The Senate Minority Leader has blocked those bills from coming up for a vote.

    If you are going to argue politics, know what you are arguing.
