"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Pundits of the Right Lie and Spin for Romney

The nerve of Romney to try and score political points on Libya once again underscores he will say and do anything including hurting our national security if it gets him votes.  This time it backfired when Candy Crowley told Romney that Obama did bring up act of terror the next morning after the Libya attacks.  Romney went out with his press release attacking Obama before the President even knew four of our people had been killed that night.   Romney wanted to score political points on the night of the attacks the same as he did last night.  Romney and his advisers don't have the decency to wait until the investigation is complete before launching their attacks.  

I said exactly the same thing about the Democrats attacking President  on the photos released from Air Force One as he was flying to Offutt AFB, NE, to a secure facility the night of 9/11.  Politicians of both parties would be better served to keep their mouths shut and allow the President to hand foreign affairs.

Obama takes on Romney's comments and schools Romney about his job as President and Commander in Chief while Romney just sets there with a pained look because he stepped in it but then Romney comes right back again which shows a total lack of class and when he got shot down with the facts.  

Right after the debate Romney, his wife, and family immediately left the debate forum while the Obama's stayed for 45 minutes talking to voters, signing autographs, and having their pictures taken.  That says it all about who won the debate and no amount of spin from the right can changed what happened or the number of lies Romney told.

Romney with his penchant for lying scares the living daylights out of me.

Here are some links from the debate.  Couldn't believe Fox News reporting Crowley tried to 'walk back' her remarks but she never did as she was on with Anderson Cooper later last night confirming what she had said.  The media of the right will say anything to prop up Romney just like Republicans.  Lies make zero difference to these people as the links below prove:
