    We should have a good idea what will happen in November on Wednesday morning. If Obama comes out and lets Romney deny things like his 5 Trillion dollar tax cut again without calling him on it, then Obama will lose.

    If Obama comes out and refutes Willard this time, instead of letting him get away with his lies, then Obama has a chance. Wednesday morning we should know.

    Obama won't do that again. Romney's debate performance was like a sucker punch, Obama wasn't prepared for him to lie quite so much. I see Obama setting the record straight and engaging the audience like Romney never could in a townhall setting.

    True. It's unusual for anyone to lie more than Obama and his flock of programmed sheep.

    Except the $5 trillion tax cut is an Obama lie, genius.

    From HuffPo:

    "Four times Obama repeated the conclusion of an independent analysis by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center that those cuts would cost approximately $5 trillion. Romney, in response, claimed "I don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. I don't have a tax cut of a scale that you're talking about."

    Faced with that contrast -- a statistic generated by a non-partisan, widely respected think tank versus an unsupported assertion by a guy essentially asking people to trust him -- who did CNN and FactCheck.org declare had the more factual response?

    Mitt Romney.


    "Obama accused Romney of proposing a $5 trillion tax cut. Not true," FactCheck.org said. "Romney proposes to offset his rate cuts and promises he won’t add to the deficit."

    CNN, FactCheck.org On Romney's $5 Trillion Tax Plan: Trust Him

    From FactCheck.org:

    "To be clear, Romney has proposed cutting personal federal income tax rates across the board by 20 percent, in addition to extending the tax cuts enacted early in the Bush administration. He also proposes to eliminate the estate tax permanently, repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax, and eliminate taxes on interest, capital gains and dividends for taxpayers making under $200,000 a year in adjusted gross income.

    By themselves, those cuts would, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, lower federal tax liability by “about $480 billion in calendar year 2015” compared with current tax policy, with Bush cuts left in place. The Obama campaign has extrapolated that figure out over 10 years, coming up with a $5 trillion figure over a decade.

    However, Romney always has said he planned to offset that massive cut with equally massive reductions in tax preferences to broaden the tax base, thus losing no revenue and not increasing the deficit. So to that extent, the president is incorrect: Romney is not proposing a $5 trillion reduction in taxes."

    That's not a lie, G. You did vote in the poll and you voted that Obama won the debate. Don't lie about that now. It's there on the board for anyone to see.
