Obama attacks Romney on oil tax break remarks he never made
Daily Caller ^ | 10/5/12 | Michael Bastasch

Posted on 10/05/2012 4:21:50 PM PDT by Nachum

President Barack Obama is back on the campaign trail, blasting the “fake” Mitt Romney for false claims he supposedly made during Wednesday night’s presidential debate.

“Last night, my opponent says he refuses to close the loophole that gives big oil companies $4 billion in taxpayer subsidies every year,” Obama said at a Denver campaign event on Thursday. “He ruled out closing the loophole that gives oil companies $4 billion in corporate welfare.”

Obama continued this line of attack at other campaign events as well.

“The guy who was playing Mitt Romney said he refuses to close a loophole that gives big oil companies $4 billion in taxpayer subsidies every single year,” Obama said in Wisconsin on Thursday.

And again at a Friday event in Virginia, Obama claimed Romney said that there is “no way” he’d close loopholes for oil companies.

“He said there’s no way that he’d close the loophole that gives big oil companies billions each year in corporate warfare,” Obama said on Friday.

Romney should get a stock response together for these lies, which are gonna come thick & fast through the election.

Whatever form that response takes it needs to be heavily derisive.

Obama is acting like the kid who just got his ass kicked at recess, then waits for the principal to show up to start bad mouthing the one who just “whuped” him, while in complete safety.

ironic, given that the obamite’s full explanation (dutifully reported by the MSM) for the TOTUS getting his ass kicked in the debate was, “romeny lied!!!”*

*an argument that is rejected by thinking third graders on playgrounds all over the country.

Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Costanza loses an interoffice joke off. Then spends the entire episode trying to figure out what he should have said and what he will say next time. He came up with jerk store.

He loves to talk tough when there's no opposition present with a mic to correct him. Romney and Ryan need to go after his bag of lies every second of the day. The leftists are already in the political forums claiming that the republicans are trying to talk down this so called "Obama economic boom".

obama lies all the time. He says Romney lied.
Thus, what obama is truly saying is that Romney spoke the truth.

Romney spoke the truth about something he didn’t say.

The guy who was playing Mitt Romney

This petulant line of attack makes the President look very small indeed. It's like the Howard Dean scream in slow motion. He is not doing himself any favors.

I hope he keeps doing it.

They say in the nest debate Obama will have to be more aggressive. Do you think it's possible that a candidate (especially The President) could go a little too overboard on aggressiveness on live TV?

If so, you think Obama just may do it?

I think what Romney should say to all of the lies is:

“Look what he says when I am not around to correct him. Would he like to invite me to his next campaign speech?”

funny how he never called out Romney not once when Romney called his lies out but now back out there with his sheep he starts to tell his usual lies.

I hope Romney gets this idiot on the next debate and calls his lies out again and states . “Mr President after the last debate you stated to your crowd which does not answer back or question you that I had told lies but you never called me out so again I ask you what lie did I say and why do you feel the need to name call and say this when you will not be caled out or I am not around to question you?’

on the next debate he needs to bring this up to the empty chair , list all of what this idiot is saying and then go through them line by line and then finish off by saying” now I have given you the truth and I hope from here you will not go back and start saying I am lying as this is your chance to say anything right now and clear anything up”

It would be funny if he did. You know that when theOne gets excited, he has a hard time speaking a sentence unpunctuated with, wh-wh-wh, uh, ahh, I ya, etc. Then, when its Romney’s turn to reply, he could speak deliberately and extra slowly, as if speaking to a very young child. It would help accentuate theOne’s anger.

Romney said that when spending needs to be cut, this allowance for oil exploration would be “on the table.” And the amount was $2.5 billion, not $4 billion, so he’s lying about that. If it was so terrible, why didn’t Obama get rid of it in his four years at the helm?

Here it is:
“Mr. President, you are a liar. Now, prove me wrong.”

In the face-to-face context of the debates, I think a reprise of “There you go again!” would do nicely.

At the level of press releases, something along the lines of “President Obama has consistently shown that he believes his supporters’ inflated estimates of his oratorical ability, that partisan economic estimates are facts, and that policies that sound good in theory, but have never worked in practice will suddenly work when he tries them. It is hardly surprising that one who dwells in such a fantasy-land will claim that uncomfortable facts are ‘lies’.”

I'm reminded of the Seinfeld episode The Comeback [the "jerk store called" episode]. Obama's thinking up all these "great comebacks" now that he's out from under Romney's pressure.

Between this false attack, the made up $5 trillion dollar tax cut, the murder accusations, the paying no taxes accusations, and the felon accusation, it is clear they have little to run on. It is bottom of the barrel stuff. Very telling.

“Romney can not call obama a “liar” he needs to use another word.”

IT’s time to take the gloves off. Or, should I have said, time to take the mittens off. Yea, politicians got this BS ethics thing going, can’t call one another a “liar”. It’s all BS. Call the guy what he is and let the chips fall where they may.

Also reminds me of the movie Shallow Hal. The character (strangely enough played by the same guy that plays Constanza) says something like you only get 5 seconds for a comeback. Three days delay just loses a bit of the spontaneity.

This ass doesn’t even know what IDC allowance is. It is a accounting function. Romney stated it perfectly, but the idiot in chief is not smart enough to figure it out. The IDC allowance has been around for over 100 years.

They did that with Lehrer. Gave Obamatron 4 extra minutes. I think he is going to get all wee wee'd up- all over himself.

If only Americans would notice that Obozo hasn’t said a word about what he has done and what he will do, because he can’t. He has done nothing but point fingers at Romney, talk about Romney, lie about Romney. Romney Romney Romney. He’s “ate up” with Romney. He’s obsessed with Romney. He really is taking this extremely personally. It’s as if he never really understood before that he would have an actual opponent in the race, that he didn’t inherit the White House by reason of prior occupancy.

He is really nuts.

And they called Nixon thin-skinned? Obama makes him look absolutely magnanimous.
