    During the debate Romney said that he will not allow any tax cuts that will increase the deficit, meaning that the math will necessarily add up.

    LOL And Bush stated that his tax cuts would help the economy and not increase the deficit. Why have we any reason to believe any of this crap?

    The numbers don't add up. Kind of like a fellow that states that he will pay his credit card bill off by decreasing his income and eating one less candy bar a week. Arithmetic.

    Republicans are not going to worry about being "fact checked".

    No, it's like the fellow who said he will not charge any more on his credit card than he can afford to pay back. Again, Romney promised that while a 20% tax cut is his goal, he will not allow any tax cuts that will increase the deficit, so the numbers necessarily add up.

    Mark Zandi supported the stimulus and has been a stalwart supporter of Obama's policies from the very beginning. This marks him as a 'tard. Whatever he says, the opposite is probably true.

    The Republicans have yet to impose a tax cut that didn't lead to increased deficits, so it will be quite a trick for Romney to do so.

    No tricks are necessary. All it will take is careful planning of ending deductions for the wealthy, cutting spending and encouraging economic growth. Romney did this successfully in Mass. even with a hostile legislature fighting him and there is no reason to think he can't do it again in Washington. Obama is a whiner, but Romney is a doer.
