When President Obama lied about Mitt Romney’s position on the Detroit Auto bailout, he seemed certain that the American people were too stupid and lazy to go look it up. He was wrong.
In the second to last paragraph Romney stated “The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not at risk.”

When our comedic president hilariously lampooned Mr. Romney about horses and bayonets, he also proved himself to be seriously misinformed about our military men and women and their basic operations. To compare a Navy ship to a horse or a bayonet in terms of effective battle use is ridiculous.

This was a telling debate with the incumbent (almost always the winner in a foreign policy debate) appearing shallow and angry, and the challenger appearing magnanimous and informed. In my opinion I would give the official win to Obama, his theatrics and deceit will pay off largely for him, mainly through media uses of sound bites. Romney on the other hand gets the unofficial win for actually increasing his base with undecided independents. One wanted to fire up his base, the other wanted to grow his base.
Either way, whomever wins in November needs to get rid of that “daylight between the US and Israel” .
