Romney Wins First Debate Hands Down (Complete Video)

Romney charged that the money was simply the result of the government reducing its payments to hospitals and insurance companies, which are already causing some hospitals to refuse treatment to Medicare patients/

Romney’s most stylish moment, in my opinion, came when he addressed the issue of his proposed cuts in what he considers frivolous government spending. He made no secret last night of killing PBS funding, as he told the debate moderator Lehrer whose name is practically synonymous with the PBS brand:

“I like PBS. I love Big Bird. I actually like you, too. But I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for,” Romney said.

I believe the Republican nominee has already done a lot last night to change the lackluster course of his campaign. If he can repeat and make Obama appear dry, over-rehearsed and inauthentic—yes, yes, the great political crooner actually looked out of touch last night—if Romney can do it one more time, he could win this thing.

The next debate, on Thursday, October 11, will be between the vice presidential candidates. I expect it to turn out more or less even. the next time the heavy weights spar will be on Tuesday, October 16, in a town hall meeting format, debating foreign and domestic policy. Obama won it decisively in 2008. I believe Romney can beat him, but watch out – Obama will be better prepared this time.

  1. Charlie Hall says:

    Romney walked back most of his controversial economic positions last night. What he said at the debate is inconsistent with his published positions and campaign web site. He has been campaigning as a right winger and last night he spoke as a moderate Republican.

    And he is a hypocrite on the $716 billion. He publicly supported his running mate Paul Ryan when those very same "cuts" were included in Ryan's budget proposal. I guess Romney was for the cuts before he was against them?

  2. Perry Levin says:

    Fact checking after the debate has shown that Romney is either stupid or was lying on purpose. He stated he does not know of any IRS regulation that pays companies to move jobs overseas. As the founder and head of Bain Capital he used this (and is actually doing it to an American company as I write this) to make money. Anyone who believes what Romney says and votes for him is a fool. There is no way to judge, from everything he has said since announcing his candidacy, what he will do if he is elected president.

  3. Anonymous says:

    President Romney! The dawn of this long dark night is near at hand!

  4. You can count on him for what he says…unlike Obama who has NO EXPERIENCE IN ANYTHING, except corruption, voter fraud and spending taxpayers money foolishly. Every other word leaving his mouth is a lie. That is the truth. Do you want socialized everything??? Look at the socialized countries now Spain, Greece,etc….do they look that good to you? They are all falling apart at the seams. Obama has had four years to fix our economy…has he??? WE NEED JOBS HERE AND OBAMA DOESN'T WANT THAT. HE WANTS TO KEEP AS MANY ON WELFARE AND GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS AS HE CAN THEN THAT MAKES HIM IN CONTROL OF OUR LIVES. Anyone voting for 4 more years of the same with Obama has your head in the sand because he is not for our country. Look! He took the National Day of Prayer away and gave the Muslims the day instead. He was against the Old government of Egypt and supported the Muslim Brotherhood who has taken over. Same thing happened in Libya. Sound like a guy you want running our country???? Start studying the facts…and know that MainStream Media is "in bed" with Obama and the communist and Muslim Brotherhood. Think about how these countries function…You want that. I DON'T!

  5. Rc Fowler says:

    Those who voted for Obama in 2008–were fools and traitors–those who vote for him again–are the same!

    Yes Mitt Romney is not the best–but he is not Barack Obama–and this is a good thing!

  6. Aldo Rocco says:

    NO FOR MUSLIMS SHARIA AND CALIFAT GOVERNMENT! IT IS THE TIME TO VOTE ROMNEY AT LEAST HE IS CHRISTLIM! RIGHT! THINK ABOUT IT MUSLIM OR CHRISTLIM? YOU CHOOSE… JESUS IS ON HIS WAY , PROPHECY TO COME HOLY BIBLE DANIEL 7 : 25 MATTHEW 24…..
