Surprise – More Romney Lies After The Debate
After his performance at the debate last night, with a record 27 lies, myths or distortions last night, he must have felt that was not enough as he showed up unexpectedly at Colorado’s Conservative Political Action Conference bright and early first thing this morning to share some more. While at the conference Mr. Romney had these words to say:
Last night I thought was a great opportunity for the American people to see two very different visions for the country. And I think it was helpful to be able to describe those visions. I saw the president’s vision as trickle-down government and I don’t think that’s what America believes in. I see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. We have two very different courses for America – trickle-down government or prosperity through freedom.
This is a confusing statement, and a bad mis-step for a man who just came off of a debate where he came across as a bully and well as a liar. The term “trickle-down” is a Republican talking point, discussing their economic plan. He is now using it as a measurement of failure, undermining his own economic platform, built on trickle-down. Then he claims prosperity through freedom, but that is some new buzzword right there with “we built it.” In one ear and out the other with the electorate. For a man who supposedly won, he is failing to capitalize on it, and instead is sounding as out-of-touch as ever.
Romney talks about how he has a vision and explained it, but his message last night was about avoiding explaining anything, and was instead a dance around the issues. If there was a vision last night, nobody saw it. Instead they saw the glass smile and perfect hair of a well-groomed corporate shark who was praying to God that nobody would notice that he performed dozens more “Mitt-Flops.”
