Yeah Obama's pathetic debate performance was filled with lies half truths and flat out -- now among the tall -- that he told -- told repeatedly was -- governor Mitt Romney wants to cut taxes.
By five trillion dollars for the rich the well see the one -- -- but today.
His deputy campaign manager who also happens to be well an expert in not exactly tell the truth.
Admitted -- simply not accurate listen very carefully as Stephanie Cutter acknowledges that the number is made up.
This tax cut wouldn't be anywhere near that size.
So you're you're disputing the size of the tax cut and yet -- also how he's gonna pay for it well because you guys I don't react tonight well immediately campaign -- He's campaigned on lowering tax rates by 20% for everybody including those in the top 1% that was one of the main selling points.
In the Republican primary right -- I'll give you all of them are funny accent and you get you get a slap five trillion dollar tab right.
-- -- -- five trillion dollar tab but that we just like he did not sense it's not going to be anywhere near I trillion dollars that's our announcements.
Well okay stipulated it won't be near five trillion dollars but it's also not going to be the sum of five -- dollars in the loopholes and he's gonna close.
All old -- -- this nuance to that OK -- joining me -- to set the record straight RNC chairman -- preakness is with us.
-- let's have an honest debate and I thought governor Romney was like OK let me explain this again to you and let me explain it again it was like a professor and -- -- At times and and the president that obviously didn't -- -- get it.
But not -- any and he and he explained it over and over and over again you know I was I was I was listening to this cut that you displayed.
It kinda gives you insight as to how these guys also -- -- jobs right they add up to gains but they don't add up the losses that.
If you do you get a -- little window into the mathematics of Barack Obama and Stephanie Cutter.
But you know it's -- these guys are amazing.
And look we've got on top of them now on these lies and you know sometimes it takes a one on one.
Situation we've got governor Romney Barack Obama standing there.
And they're gonna have a honest conversation a debate debate.
Clearly the president did a miserable job and one of the reasons he did a miserable job besides the fact he didn't show up.
Is that he can't retreat to any facts that are good for his side I think.
Charles just mentioned it.
A little while ago on your show which is that you don't have the facts on your side it is very very difficult to stand there in front of sixty million people.
And defend what you're doing where you're going this you can't whine about everything because you've been the president the whole time.
You know it's -- it down the did the Republican Party put out what you call the big -- And you point out when you believe the twelve specific lies number one is the president's plan.
To cut the deficit by four trillion dollar that he'd return America to tax rates under Clinton.
That Obama says Romney's Medicare plan would cost seniors 6000 dollars a year.
You know we can go through the whole list here is you can see -- health care becomes more affordable Romney would raise taxes on the middle class.
Romney's plan is the five trillion dollar tax is planned.
Balanced -- Simpson Bowles.
-- the war savings fiscal fiction Social Security structurally sound.
Created five million private sector job you say none of this is true.
Yeah what what's amazing about these guys is that personal amended their lousy job in the debate.
But they also -- upon.
The -- and the entire miserable experience for them whole mountain -- upon the American people and then what they did.
As they woke up the next -- said while not only did we do a bad job and everyone thinks we did.
We also lied the whole way through the debates and now we're gonna do is we're gonna call Mitt Romney a liar so let's just here's the plan.
Let's just call them up by July or so that we can try to inoculate that problem.
This is their tactic this has been our tactic for -- -- -- -- -- year end and we all know that's the case.
Now I -- -- that's the whole that's all they had left dentist who are horrific showing by the president but.
You don't remember them.
Mitt Romney's the guy that killed this worker's wife Mitt Romney's the guy that's never pay taxes Mitt Romney -- dirty air and water he wants to throw grant Paul Ryan wants the programming over the cliff.
And they don't care about your kids without pat downs syndrome so that these lies have been going on for a long time.
And it's not gonna hold up -- and and here's why we've got three more debates won by next week with Paul Ryan and Joseph Biden I'm looking for partisan disability advocacy.
And that's a bit.
It -- be -- and you know I don't want to under sell Joseph Biden because I think it's pretty clever is that good rhetoric they obviously sticks his foot in his mouth too much but.
He is quick Dennis -- and he's been adding -- -- relatable to people so I don't think we can take that lightly but two more debates with.
With the president -- more opportunities.
Hopefully as -- filtered.
As we were last week I think of all of the problems though and of all of the I think huge disappointments -- this president at the debate was that he continues to perpetrate this mess.
That somehow he's got this magic plan to get our deficit -- her debts under control after he himself number one delivered three.
Every year that he's been president -- Thompson -- really is and how does it to be accurate as of today five point 54 trillion in new debt they'll be six trillion.
He's -- a bomb and that he is that.
Here's the debt king of the world.
And he is coming out here and telling -- and American people he's got a plan.
Well unfortunately speeches aren't plans that and I think you've got to put up or you know -- -- and and he hasn't been able to himself.
Not good enough the wind the next day.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now -- up there are.
