has been accused of cheating before but that is on his taxes. The label of "tax cheat" came from high up as Senator (D-Nevada) all the way down to the ordinary masses.
Mittens has since released--well sort of--one more year of tax returns and critics say that they were so manipulated, they do not tell the entire true story. Suffice it to say, the GOP presidential nominee has kept his "papers" under tough lock and key for so long, that the latest pittance of one more year granted to his "subjects," is redundant. By hiding it for so long, I think he has unwittingly answered the "cheat" question.
So moving on. The former Bain Capitalist is now accused of more cheating--this time it is during Wednesday night presidential debate held in Denver.
Take a look at the above video and judge for yourselves. Is Mittens whipping out a hidden cheat sheet from his pocket? Or are critics making much ado about nothing? Maybe that's his pad for taking notes? President Obama was seen throughout the debate looking down and scribbling on his note pad wasn't he?
Some might say this is an acute case of sour grapes from Liberals for their "boy wonder" Obama was pegged as the loser this first round of three scheduled "duels."
The general consensus out there on both sides, surprisingly--is that the incumbent dropped the ball; fell asleep at the wheel; checked out of the party; was a push-over; missing in action; a dismal disappointment; folded like a lawn chair; was indeed Clint's empty chair parody gone real.
My take on the matter? Romney won by default. It was not that he was great--his lied non stop; his upper lip sweated too much through those lies and half truths; his eyes constantly blinked agitatedly; his face comically animated; his tone manic aggressive--like he took a little "aid" before he hit the podium.
In other words, it was strange Romney on "steroids" which means he was strange, times squared. But because the president seemed to check out when he took his place behind the podium--uncannily like what was going on with him was the opposiite of what was going on with his opponent-- he looked like the wall-flower at the prom.
Romney seems slightly wired and Obama appeared slightly lobotomized.
But that's just me. What's your take on the giant orgasmic wave sweeping the media over Romney's performance and the strange anihilation of Obama?
A slight update: This just in from the Romney camp, who swears that the object seen in the above video was not a cheat sheet but an innocent handkerchief whipped out by Romney to mop his sweating brow if the occasion arose. Well, from what I remember, he did need it for, his upper lip and forehead "rained" profusely throughout the debate. Don't remember if I observed him mopping up the buckets of sweat though. Did you?
He may have but because I was so infuriated with the rugged road the debate had taken, I too had "checked out" like Obama, at one point.
