Romney's "Elmer Gantry" style may have "wowed" those not paying attention, but those in the know are going to unpack the plethora of outright lies, distortions and policy shifts rolled out by Romney last night. While Obama's "Mr. Roberts" seemed a bit stoic and flatfooted, he stayed on message and avoided any major gaffes..such as looking annoyed or losing his cool. Personally? I wish Obama would have called him on some of the bullshit. Something like: Mitt: I am not going to cut taxes, I am going to lower rates.. Obama: Wait a minute, what exactly do you think those rates are? That's what the government draws it's revenue from. The rest of the world refers to them as taxes. So when you say you want to lower rates..what you are really saying is that you want to cut taxes. But that didn't happen. While I am not a big fan of the "Elmer Gantry" thing..it does seem to work in the short term. Lets see how it works out in the longer term.
