    Good article from David Cohen


    The Obama campaign really, really wants you to believe that Mitt Romney is a liar. In fact, they’ll say anything to make you believe it — even things that, well, aren’t true.

    Why is Team Obama pushing this “Romney is a liar” narrative with such desperation? The most obvious reason: they need to stop the bleeding from Obama’s dismal performance in the first presidential debate. “Romney is a liar” is thus the latest in a long line of excuses that Obama supporters have thrown against the wall to explain the GOP nominee’s dominating performance.

    Former Vice President Al Gore, whose instinct is always to try too hard, offered one of the more creative excuses. He prefaced it by warning: “I’m gonna say something controversial here,” “controversial” in this case meaning “stupid.” Gore then went on to suggest that Obama was debilitated by Denver’s high altitude.

    Believe it or not, few people bought the altitude excuse. Hence Team Obama was forced to concoct yet another excuse, and they’ve settled with a vengeance on “Romney is a liar.”

    There are other reasons that Obama is so intent on portraying Romney as a liar. It’s a tactic straight out of the playbook of Saul Alinsky, the radical father of community organizing who has been Obama’s guiding light. Rule 5 of Alinsky’s seminal work, Rules for Radicals, instructs leftists to ridicule their political opponents: “‘Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.’ There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.” And then there’s Rule 12: “‘Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.’ Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”

    This explains why leftists engage in incessant name-calling and personal attacks, even though such attacks are, in Alinsky’s own words, “irrational.” “Liar” is the new “racist,” an all-purpose epithet that, at least in the mind of the leftist, trumps any logical argument. (Not that “racist” has been retired.) Calling Romney a liar is a classic radical attack, both irrational and personal...

    To recap:
    1.Romney dodged explaining his health care plan by saying it was too "lengthy" to describe, which just isn't true.
    2.Romney, despite refusing to detail his plan, said it covered pre-existing conditions just like Obamacare even though he has previously taken the opposite position and even though his own campaign did not stand by his claim.
    3.Romney says his plan wouldn't kick young people of their family plans because he says young people are already able to get coverage through their parents. But Obamacare is what makes that possible, and if his plan is to continue that policy, he's endorsing a key element of Obamacare.

    President Obama rebutted Romney's first and second points during the debate, with particular emphasis on Romney's recurring pattern of refusing to say how he'd achieve his promises. And he did make it clear that the way to achieve the promises made by Romney would be to keep Obamacare in place. But he didn't go for Romney's jugular and point out that Mitt Romney was essentially endorsing Obamacare in substance, if not name.

    In the end, Romney's answer sounded good, but a key part of the reason that it sounded good is that he claimed President Obama's positions as his own—and didn't get called out for it.
