An impassioned Romney reinvents himself ó again---For Obama, itís just the facts ó not the fire (??)

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Mitt Romney revitalized his campaign for the presidency Wednesday night with a lively attack on President Barack Obama.

Romney had all the passion in Wednesday night’s debate, as he went on the offensive from the start. “People are really hurting,” Romney said, laying the blame for America’s stagnant economy directly on the president.

Romney may not have delivered zingers that will go down in history, but not for lack of trying. He peppered his remarks with one-liners and insults that were clearly well-rehearsed. Vote: Who won the debate, Obama or Romney?

By contrast, Obama’s approach was dry, diplomatic and dispassionate, hoping to bury his opponent with the facts of not only his record as president but the specifics of Romney’s own proposals on taxes, spending and health care. Romney’s plans just don’t add up, the president charged. “It’s math. It’s arithmetic.”

And that’s where Romney pulled a fast one. On issue after issue, Romney essentially repudiated much of what he’s been saying for months, if not years.

Might be a clue in here as to how Obama is going to attack Romney in the next debate.

The strategy I heard this morning is that the O camp of fools would use is Mitt is a flip flopper.

The last few days could be pretty intense as the left implodes.

Obama’s,”it’s math, it’s arithmetic,” moment was one of many weak ones... he fumbled on that delivery...

Rex Nutting is the liar who claimed that Obama was a fiscal conservative who ‘inherited’ the trillion dollar deficit. He falsely claimed that Obama, who gave us $6 trillion in debt and has spent at the highest level in our history, actually didnt increase spending... he accomplished this lie by assigning all Obama’s spending in his first year, when Obama added $2 trillion in new spending, to Bush.

More pro-Obama lies from an unpaid campaign supporter.

Nutter!

So, “flip-flopper Senator John Kerry” IS, still, a debate advisor for Barack Obama! If anybody knows anything about flip-flopping, it’s Senator John Kerry.
