President Obama presented clear and factual reasons why his leadership and decisions are what America needed to get our economy back on track- notwithstanding efforts of some members of congress such as Minority Leader Mitch McConnell who stated on Oct. 23, 2010, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
In the debate, President Obama faced the American people and told the truth about how he has and will continue to defend the U.S. Constitution and opportunity for all Americans.
In contrast, Governor Romney lied to 67.2 million Americans. Multiple journalists and fact-checkers have concluded that the Governor’s statements were, “Mostly fiction” (CNN) and “Romney sometimes came off as a serial exaggerator” (FactCheck.org).
His claims of $716 billion cut from Medicare and his assertion that his healthcare plan would cover preexisting conditions were rated “mostly fiction” by ABC News. His claim of increased government spending was similarly found to be “not quite factual.” Factcheck.org found that the governor’s claim that “health care costs rose $2,500 per family under Obama” was false.
The question each of us must answer for ourselves is “Do you prefer sincere truths or forceful lies?”
