Upon Further Review: Mitt Romney May Have Cheated To Win The Debate
http://washington.cbslocal.com/2012/10/05/upon-further-review-mitt-romney-may-have-cheated-to-win-the-debate/ ^ | 10/5/12 | Bill Buck

Posted on 10/05/2012 1:33:26 PM PDT by Lmo56

Over the past day the game tape of the debate has been reviewed. While Mitt Romney still enjoys the afterglow of the debate, the lies and half truths he told are being dissected.

From tax policy to hiring teachers. From cracking down on Wall Street (and Sesame Street) to coverage for the uninsured. From Medicare to shipping jobs overseas the fact checkers have been very busy correcting the record and pointing out falsehoods.

Even Team Romney had to correct the candidate on health care immediately after the debate.

As I predicted earlier this week, Romney had an October Surprise planned for the President – new policy ideas. But I had no idea that Romney would just lie about everything he had said over the past year and a half.

As the President said, Mitt Romney’s bright new idea is: Never Mind!

But there was a moment in the debate that will be discussed in the days ahead that everyone missed until yesterday.

A review of the debate tape reveals that, apparently, Mitt Romney needed a cheat sheet to keep the lies straight.

Of course he cheated—by working his butt off to prepare. And that just ain't right.

If anyone cheated it was Lehrer with that earpiece while trying to coach the right answers out of Obummer.

I’m still waiting to hear Obama tell us what he plans to do in another four years. He is the encumbent right? He was the president the last four years, right? He did have a Democrat Congress the first two years of his term, right? It’s amazing how he acts like he’s the challenger.

I posted this on the other similar thread as well:

Check out this link from BuzzFeed, and the video of Romney wiping his nose with his “cheat sheet”. Libs are truly going insane.

Yeah, but the damage is being done by just saying this dontchaknow? Doesn’t matter if it’s true or not.....the media will tell this to the airheads (American sheeple) and they will believe it because it’s on tv.

I took the Presidential debate test and tweeted him the answers. Don’t tell anybody.

I wouldn’t really care if there were a cheat sheet, nor really if Obama had a teleprompter. It’s unnatural enough the way they cram; did Obama get to prep for a week after the Libya attack to come up with the best response? Oh, wait, bad example.

Point is, it’s already a show, and a cheap one at that. If you wanted to test their intelligence, stature, grace under fire, etc., stop the dueling soundbites. Make them talk for a half hour or so at a time, with prepared speeches at first but then off the top of their heads in rebuttal.

Perhaps I sound like Newt, but I only bring it up to make the point that it’s ridiculous. The candidates aren’t up to it and no one would watch. And more to the point: what we do get is hardly different from using crib notes.

LMBO!!!
Satire doesn’t get much better than this!

I’ve always said that a key to defeating the African communist was mockery, if anybody had the stones to do it. It’s good to see somebody does. Let’s send the simple thug back to his Chicago “community”.

Remember when cameras “caught” Paling with, like, three words magic marketed on her hand? The story was something like how stupid must she be if she can’t remember three words. Which aorta proves the opposite; obviously regard even wouldn’t need them to remember, and it must just be something that helps her. Meanwhile Obama had prompter everywhere.

I assume one of the next two debates will be one of those silly walkabouts. Will the story be Romney was signalled from the audience through secret Mormon Code, or something?

I just went to the site and Mr Buck is now conceding i.e he waves a white handkerchief as defeat!

“So it seems that Mitt Romney did indeed memorize his lies rather than bring a laundry list of them with him. And he carries a hanky. “

Hey Bill Buck, rhythms with $uck, when you are debating an empty airhead academe you don't need to cheat. If bird brain had his teleprompter he still would have gotten his down low community organizer ass kicked.

What falsehoods exactly?

This is all the left has been saying post debate on message boards. Romney spewed lie after lie. Ok. Give us examples.

Obama stood inches away from Mitt on debate night-—if Obama thought Mitt was lying and cheating, he had an hour and a half to say so.

Braindead Obama said nothing-—too busy smirking, cueing Jim Lehrer to bailout his sorry ***—— and hanging his head stupidly wondering what to say next.

Well if Mitt cheated this debate?

Why not let B Racky use notes the next debate?

And the debate does not have to be live. That way they can edit the time to make it "fair".

Oh yeah Hussein's note pad looks like a TP screen, and final edit is done by them.

I smell a debate rules change setup!!!!

The Libs also accused Dubya of wearing an ear piece which fed him all the answers.

Once again the news media has gone into the tank for Odumbo. If there isn’t any news, the invent it, if there IS news they distort it so, how difficult is it to see through yet another fabrication?

Anybody remember the big brouhaha that Bush cheated during debates with Kerry by wearing a box under his coat that fed him the right answers.
