Upon Further Review: Mitt Romney May Have Cheated To Win The Debate
CBS DC ^ | Oct. 5, 2012 | Bill Buck

Posted on 10/05/2012 11:26:49 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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.

The rules of the presidential debates are clear about not bringing outside notes and presidents and aspirants have followed the rule for decades.

Video of the first eleven seconds of the debate available on YouTube shows Mitt Romney reaching into his pocket at the moment he is out of view of those in front of him, he used the lectern as a shield, and removing what appears to be folded papers from his pocket.

We see this because the camera that was broadcasting was behind Romney. Those in the audience and the moderator may have been shielded from his sleight of hand, but not the viewers.

Romney then proceeds to unfold the item in front of him.

Romney always has a piece of paper with his Dad’s name on it in front of him at the debates. His wife was talkiing about this last week.

HERE WE GO!

The media, not content to let their boy slip, continues to propagate garbage to make it seem like Obama was cheated. They cannot allow Obama to seem like the incompetent Marxist faggot he truly is!

This is a satire site, right?

I almost hate to point out that, if that is what happened, Romney actually pulled the paper out in full view of those people to his right. If he’d wanted to do a sleight of hand, he would have used his left hand.

Of course, the text alone was satire as the Romney who came to the debate was using the same playbook the Romney campaign has been using all along.

What will they say when Romney wins the town hall debate...that he was channeling Reagan for illicit help?

In some states “imbeciles” are not allowed to vote. Perhaps that is a good law after all.

Ah yes, and Romney obviously read from his cheat sheet word for word the entire length of the debate much as Obama reads from his teleprompter word for word in every speech he gives...

Go ahead and make as many excuses for Odumbo as you can, media, he needs all the help he can get.

Oh give me a break !!! One anchor saw it and mentioned it was a cloth possibly a handkerchief for fear of a possible ‘’Nixon’’ moment. What next? He was looking at places to go after the debate?

Bill’s brother, Joe Buck, a nationally known male prostitute, was played by John Voight in the film “Midnight Cowboy.”

Bill, a “journalistic” prostitute, writes for several junk and cash strapped liberal rags.

I only can get CBS & ABC.

I can get Hopalong Cassidy reruns on side stations.
Un
til this country gets to Jan 20 & inaugurates Mitt Romney, I think I am boycotting any ‘news’ on the main stations.

I already watch Hopalong at 6 PM instead of Diane Sawyer. More believable.

So does a Republican strategist get equal time to tell lies on the CBS DC website? This appears as news but in reality is nothing but DNC talking points. They don’t even care that we know they are in the tank.

Well, Obama had Jim Lehrer ‘leading the witness’ every time Romney spoke and Obama didn’t clue in about an appropriate response.

Ha - Joe Buck wasn’t a very successful prostitute in the movie IIRC.

BTW Midnight Cowboy was X-rated. I can remember the first time I saw it on VHS and a few things happened that I didn’t really expect to see LOL.
