While most polls and political pundits gave the advantage to the President in the second debate, Mitt Romney did win on two accounts: Disrespect and Lies.
Despite having agreed to a long list of rules for the Town Hall Debate, which included an agreement that neither candidate directly address the other or venture into the others space, Mitt Romney literally got in the face of the President. He also directed a barrage of questions at the President rather than go through the moderator. The effect was to seem unnecessarily confrontive and even disrespectful of the President.
Romney may not respect President Obama, but he should at least be respectful of the office. Moreover, Romney’s bossy attitude demonstrated that he lacks the temperment to negotiate with world leaders.
As for the ability to stretch the truth and tell lies to support his arguments, Romney was, once again, the overwhelming winner.
He was not only caught telling a lie about the Presidents address on Benghazi. He lied about the number of women who lost jobs in the past 4 years. He misstated his opposition to the Lilly Ledbetter Act. He didnt tell the truth about his position on contraception. He lied about his recommendation to let Detroit go bankrupt and, therefore, fail. He lied about his tax proposals. He was wrong about the increase in healthcare insurance over the past two years. He lied about his proposal to limit Pell Grants. And he lied about the Presidents energy policies, including the delay of the XL Pipeline.
In other words, Romney demonstrated that he is not qualified to be Commander-in-Chief. But he definitely demonstrated that he is qualified to be Liar-in-Chief.
