POTUS gave the confident rebuttal we all expected last night…but after the Debate’s were over. And while he came back with fighting words, many of us are still talking about his lackluster performance and wondering what the hell happened?
According to The Huffington Post, Barack came back with fighting words during a post-debate rally and Robney’s campaign smacked it down as “damage control”.
Looking for a quick recovery from a disappointing debate, President Barack Obama questioned the identity of the “real” Mitt Romney on Thursday, suggesting his Republican rival had not been candid about his policy positions while on stage.
“Gov. Romney may dance around his positions but if you want to be president, you owe the American people the truth,” Obama said
Obama said that when he reached the debate stage “I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney. But it couldn’t have been Mitt Romney,” Obama said, adding that the “real Mitt Romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. The fellow on stage last night said he didn’t know anything about that.”
The president also accused Romney of misrepresenting past statements on education and outsourcing. In tough comments, the president said Romney “does not want to be held accountable … because he knows full well that we don’t want what he’s selling.”
Obama panned Romney’s suggestion during the debate that one way to pare back federal spending is to cut the subsidy for PBS, which airs “Sesame Street.” Romney said he likes PBS and “I love Big Bird,” but said the country couldn’t afford to keep borrowing money from China to pay for things like that.
“When he was asked what he’d actually do to cut the deficit and reduce spending, he said he’d eliminate funding for public television. That was his answer. I mean thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on Big Bird. It’s about time,” Obama joked. “We didn’t know that Big Bird was driving the federal deficit. But that’s what we heard last night. How about that? Elmo, too?”
LLS…Barack’s got jokes. Think POTUS learned his lesson with this fool and all of his shady azz personalities? We’re pretty sure that’s what threw him off last night and he’ll shut Robney down October 16th.
