    But Fox did not consult a single climate scientist, the vast majority of which agree that human activity is changing our climate.

    ——————-

    YOU LIE!!!

    Roy Spencer – Well, for those watched…no Roy. They used a couple animations I gave them (early in the show), but the direction of the show was quite different that they envisioned a few months ago, when I spent half a day with them.

    Let us know how you voted.

    :lol: LMAO :lol:

    @Hillbilly

    “I don’t have a $5 trillion tax cut.” Romney flatly lied about the cost of his proposal to cut income-tax rates across the board by another 20 percent (undercutting even the low rates of the Bush tax cuts). Independent economists at the Tax Policy Center have shown that the price tag for those cuts is $360 billion in the first year, a cost that extrapolates to $5 trillion over a decade.

    “I will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income Americans.” Romney has claimed that he will pay for his tax cuts by closing a variety of loopholes and deductions. The factual problem? Romney hasn’t named a single loophole he’s willing to close; worse, there’s no way to offset $5 trillion in tax cuts even if you get rid of the entire universe of deductions for the wealthy that Romney has not put off the table (like the carried interest loophole or the 15 percent capital gains rate.) The Tax Policy Center report concludes that Romney’s proposal would create a “net tax cut for high-income tax payers and a net tax increase for lower- and or middle-income taxpayers.” Moreover, some of Romney’s tax cuts are micro-targeted at American dynasties, particularly his proposal to eliminate the estate tax, which would reduce his own sons’ tax burden by tens of millions of dollars.

  • Suikostinger

    3. “We’ve got 23 million people out of work or [who have] stopped looking for work in this country.” Romney is lying for effect. The nation’s crisis of joblessness is bad, but not 23 million bad. The official figure is 12.5 million unemployed. An additional 2.6 million Americans have stopped looking for jobs. How does Romney gin up his eye-popping 23 million figure? He counts more than 8 million wage earners who hold part-time jobs as also being “out of work.”

    4. Obamacare “puts in place an unelected board that’s going to tell people ultimately what kind of treatments they can have.” Romney is reviving Sarah Palin’s old death panels lie here. Obamacare does establish an Independent Payment Advisory Board to help constrain the growth of Medicare spending. The body has no authority to dictate the practices of the private insurance marketplace. And the law also makes explicit that this body is banned from rationing care or limiting medical benefits to seniors.

  • Suikostinger

    @Hillbilly

    Why couldn’t you and DB find these? It’s everywhere, as well as Obamas lies during the debate? Are you so delusional that you just can’t/don’t see them? Why should I have to point these out? My original comment was that Romney and Obama lied during the debate, the only difference is that Romney called Obama out on his lies while Obama didn’t call Romney out on his. Why is it that when I pointed out that they BOTH have lied you and others jump all over it? I didn’t see ANY left winged person jumping on me because I said Obama lied during the debate. Yet the righties in here always have an issue when it’s pointed out that a Republican has lied….Funny how that works huh?

    Also, sorry I don’t read every single post from people on previous days or even 10s of pages since I’ve posted, sorry I partly own a business (that DB has attacked on multiple occasions BTW) AND a life outside a TV news ratings “forum”. :)

    P.S. BTW there was a 5th but for some reason it wont pass the filter.

  • Hillbilly

    Suikostinger – Why couldn’t you and DB find these? Why should I have to point these out?

    ————————-

    Why or better yet how can i find what you called called lies? I don’t have a crystal ball to read your mind. If you point them out then folks can decide if their true or false by researching them.

  • Suikostinger

    Who said you had to find out the lies? He’s a FREAKING politician! When his mouth is open he lies. Whether it’s a Republican or a Democrat. My original comment wasn’t even to point out his or Obamas lies in the debate. It was to signify the difference between both candidates during the debate which was how Obama failed to call him out on them while Romney did.

    “Why or better yet how can i find what you called called lies?”

    So really what you are saying is that you knew Romney lied during the debate you just wanted to see what I thought he lied about and to see if they were true. That’s the only conclusion I can come up with because to find out that Romney lied, PERIOD, took a total of 10 seconds of using Google. All you had to do was use this AMAZING company called Google (it’s a search engine) and find ONE out of those 5 that I posted to found out that I was right and that he lied and BTW, that’s not even all of them. It ASTOUNDS me that you think he (as a politician) didn’t lie at all during a debate. Why can the left in here see this and yet people like you and DB can’t? I can guarantee you that even JEFF (a HUGE left leaning person) will admit that Obama lied once or twice during the debate, yet you can’t see the same for Romney. Are you THAT delusional as a human being?

  • Hillbilly

    Obamacare does establish an Independent Payment Advisory Board to help constrain the growth of Medicare spending.

    Theoretically that can lead to the rationing of care, therefore leading to the treatments some can receive. Lets say the cap spending at $5 billion. When spending gets to $4.5 billion say by May 30th of any given year, they have to keep spending under $500 million the rest of the year. I can spin the other points you made as well. I’m NOT saying both didn’t stretch the truth. Is it right that both did it? NO!

  • Suikostinger

    According to Hillbilly, a little white lie isn’t a lie at all!!

    When Romney was talking about the Independent Payment Advisory Board and Medicare, he said, Barack Obama “put in place a board that can tell people ultimately what treatments they’re going to receive.”

    He avoided the more inaccurate and harsher wording of some other critics, who have falsely described the board as “rationing” care. But Romney’s claim can leave viewers with the impression that the board will sit around a table and talk about whether grandpa can get his bypass or not, and that’s not the case.

    The board can reduce how much the government pays health care providers for services, reduce payments to hospitals with very high rates of re-admissions or recommend innovations that cut wasteful spending. And there are questions about whether that could lead to different treatment decisions, but Romney’s comments give a misleading impression. We rate his statement Mostly False.

  • Hillbilly

    Your throwing the word “lied” around like it meaningless. Bill Clinton technically didn’t lie when he said “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” One has to decide what sexual relations means. To me it includes oral sex, to Bill Clinton it doesn’t. He said it so you have to use his meaning. I prefer spin to lie. You choose to use lie. To each his own.

  • TwilightZone

    @Hillbilly,

    You try to hard :grin:

    If Romney proposes a tax plan, a third party claims it will cost $5 Trillion, Obama quotes this, and Romney says no it won’t, how can this be the same as ‘lying’? If someone believes this is a lie, there is no amount of debate that can change their mind that it is not a lie but is instead a difference of opinion of the effect.

    If

    Taxes Due = Tax Rate * (Gross Earnings – Exemptions – Deductions)

    and by lowering the rate and taking away deductions results in a net change of something close to zero, and Romney claims this, how can this be the same as ‘lying’? If someone believes this is a lie, there is no amount of debate that can change their mind that it is not a lie but is instead a difference of opinion of the effect.

  • TwilightZone

    ^correction: you try TOO hard

  • Suikostinger

    Let’s not forget that number 3 is flat out WRONG! Remember guys, he DIDN’T say UNDEREMPLOYED ; I.E. People with part-time jobs that want full time. Hell, many jobs out there are part time now instead of full time because they don’t want to give their work force any benefits (Walmart) and have been like that for a long time now. Walmart cuts them off before they get into the 30 hour range (2 of my cousins work part time at a Walmart). BYE BYE. It’s 3:30 AM, time for bed.

  • TwilightZone

    To some in here, Obama is the greatest President in history, second only to FDR. These people are predispositioned to believe that any person who dares to challenge Mr. Obama for the Office of the Presidency is evil just for doing so.

  • Hillbilly

    We rate his statement Mostly False.

    According to their spin its mostly false. So that means there’s some truth. You afraid to post the link to the fact site. lol Don’t want folks to know where you got your facts from. lol We all know the fact sites are ALWAYS right. lol

    All I can say to this is AHAHAHAHAHA! This is probably the best comment I’ve seen in here. Romney “spinned” he didn’t LIE! But the reason it was a spin and not a lie was because we have to take what Romney said by the way he MEANT it and HIS interpretation! HOLY SMOKES! This is a new one! Romney knows and so do you that there are no “death panels”. He LIED! BED TIME!

  • Suikostinger

    You afraid to post the link to the fact site.

    Yeah I’m sooo afraid to post a link to the fact site. Oh wait, I’ve done that many a times when a fact site rates something mostly false, even half true. Stop grasping for straws.

  • Suikostinger

    Don’t worry, Hillbilly is too scared to touch the unemployed one. Probably any of the others also.

    I have to agree with this. reports say that Romney’s Tax cuts(before he reduces deductions) will cut 4.8T(over 10 years) of revenues for the government, so asking will it cut 5T and Romney saying no it wouldn’t would technically be true.

    Whoever is questioning Romney on such issues has to catch him while he is manipulating his words to sound nice. I would refer it more to dissorting or misrepresenting his ideas then outright lieing.

  • Rick in MT

    Hillbilly – Some people say “lied” others say “spin”. I like “some version of the truth”, we could also say “exaggeration”. As Suiko said both candidates were guilty.

    It just appears that in the debate Romney did a better job of presenting his “version of the truth” than Obama. Obama is good at expressing his “version of the truth” out on the campaign trail, It always helps to have a crowd that wants to hear that “version of the truth”.

    May be the word that best discribes it is “Politics” and some people are trying to decide which candidate is more believable, others have their minds made up. The party faithful vote Political Party, even if it is Dumbo and Eor on the ballot, In both cases they may be an improvement.

    From my perspective, On November 6th, we will go to the polls and vote for who we think will be the Least Worst and hope they don’t screw things up any worst than they are already.
