    The biggest item with which Team Obama was able to come out swinging following last week’s presidential debate (except for something about Mitt Romney being too “aggressive” and possibly trying to cheat on live television) was playing up their hilariously-contrived claim that Mitt Romney’s plan for ‘$5 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthy must necessarily raise taxes on the middle class or increase the deficit’ — a claim with which Robert Samuelson took umbrage:


    Despite its highly imaginary derivation, Obama has continued to use the figure on the stump and the campaign has touted it as point-of-fact fodder (even though, when pressed, the logic starts to fall apart, heh), so the Romney camp is finally hitting back with an ad of their own disputing Team Obama’s numbers:

    The Democrats pulled that figure out of a rabbit's hat. Romney stated 3 times during the debate that it was a false charge, yet the dems keep running with it. Over 67 million people saw the debate and yet team Obama is still running with this. Pretty stupid wasting valuable contributions on something that has been so put to rest.

    Romney’s Biggest Lie of All:
    A $5 Trillion Tax Cut For the Rich Will Create Jobs


    By: RmuseOctober 4th, 2012
    One of Willard Romney’s contentions is that President Obama is responsible for the unemployment numbers, and he has promised America that if he is elected president, his tax $5 trillion tax cuts for the wealthy will spur job creation and boost the economy. He even touted his job creation prowess while he was head of Bain Capital, and he was responsible for creating jobs, in China, and earning a tax break in the process, but it came at the expense of Americans’ jobs that continues to contribute to the 8% unemployment rate and slow-growing economy. However, his persistent claims that President Obama is responsible for the unemployment picture is part of his pathological lying, and if he were honest, he would point to his party’s obstruction as to why millions of Americans are out of work; but then he could not sell George W. Bush’s trickle down fantasy. Since it is a fact that giving more tax break entitlements to the wealthy and eliminating regulations does not boost job creation, it is worth looking at what Republicans have done over the past three-and-a-half years to create jobs. The short answer is absolutely nothing and in fact, the GOP is responsible for retarding job growth they began planning on inauguration night 2009.
