    Same thing, dumb ass... voting that Obama won the debate ion the poll is the same as saying he won. You're utter stupidity on this is reaching new levels.

    What was interesting was how many pundits asked why Obama didn't call out Romney on all his debate lies. It seems that Obama, who I still don't think did a great job, seems to have played rope a dope with Romney. The fact checkers seem to have been putting in overtime, and even Romney's supporters are asking how he could do a one eighty on so many of his positions.

    In spite of his meth inspired rant during the debate, Romney is now starting to look more like a bullshit artist and less presidential.

    Nah, your guy is suffering from the Teleprompter Blues. The Dear Leader lost a very dear friend when they pulled the plug. He's completely clueless, especially on economic matters. Romney thoroughly embarrassed him.

    Yeah, Romney certainly was lying through his teeth to get Obama to lose his cool. That failed, didn't it.

    So says the paulbot. What did you think when Romney claimed his healthcare plan covered pre-existing conditions, and his own campaign admitted that was not true? Why do you think Romney made that claim?

    And that's not even true. It's as true as Professor Rosen said Romney's economic plan was unworkable.

    PolitiFact | Mitt Romney says his health care plan covers pre-existing conditions

    During the drafting of the law, insurers warned that the provision could drive them out of business if people can wait until they get sick to buy insurance. So to address that concern, the law requires everyone to have health insurance or pay a tax penalty. That penalty clause is called "the individual mandate," and the Supreme Court ruled it constitutional this summer.

    Romney opposes that mandate, and has consistently said the health law should be repealed and replaced. But his health care plan doesn’t pack a lot of details.

    His website, though, says people "should be guaranteed the ability to retain coverage" if they have "maintained continuous health insurance coverage." That means if you already have health insurance, other insurers can’t deny you if you have pre-existing conditions. (After the debate, his spokesman confirmed this was still his position.)

    So even you admit that Romney did lie in the debate, when he claimed (from your own link):

    Why did he lie? Even under your own scenario, an insurance company could insure someone who did not know they had a condition, like a congenital heart problem, and then deny the claim.

    Somebody above made the point of a possible Obama 'rope a dope' defense, setting up Romney for a scorching next time on the holes in his narrative.

    If . . . and that is a big fat if . . . somebody on the O Team is looking far, far ahead.

    I never looked forward to a VP debate the way I am this one because of last week. The Ryan Express vs. the Biden Bruiser. This should be great!
