Governor Romney and President Obama squared off in Denver. The stakes were high as well as the expectations. Many characterized this as Romney’s last gasp, his last effort to restart his campaign. Unfortunately, President Obama allowed him to do just that.
This evening came down to a matter of style vs. substance and unfortunately this is an electorate that buys style and does not understand the substance. Romney was assertive, aggressive, and clearly understood that he had to sell himself to the viewers even if he had to lie to do so. President Obama was listless, rarely making eye contact with Romney, and his constantly looking down and away from Romney made him look defeated.
The President allowed too many of Romney’s repeated lies to go unchallenged. Romney continued to say that the President took $716B from Medicare and that those cuts will impact service. That lie has been debunked by numerous sources but the President failed to mention that and that the Ryan plan cuts the same amount and then cuts more. He did not drive home the point that his plan cuts reimbursements to providers not services to recipients while the Romney/Ryan plan cuts coverage.
