It seemed to me they both talked a whole lot without actually saying anything.
Romney and his 'zingers', the buzz word of the night, came off as though he'd been practicing them for weeks and I have to say he did wait for the
right time at least to bust 'em out. "Mr. President, you are entitled to your own plane, your own house, but you are not entitled to your own
facts." Kind of ironic, neither of them know anything about facts.
When they were talking about businesses moving jobs overseas, I think Obama said something about it being because of tax breaks, and Romney said
although he had been in business for a long time he had no idea what he was talking about... I was waiting for Romney to actually tell us with his
business experience WHY THEN businesses are moving jobs overseas because it certainly is happening. Oh well, maybe next debate.
And then when they were talking about mortgages.. What did Mitt say? They don't know what bad mortgages are still? What a bunch of crap... We know
what a bad mortgage is. The problem is big banks, investment agencies, and credit ratings agencies conspired together and were rating subprime
mortgages as AAA and selling them as high rated derivatives when they were worth zippo then using credit default swaps to bet on them failing. People
like Henry Paulson, our former Treasury secretary and former head of Goldman Sachs, helped the subprime mortgage loan bubble get bigger because banks
such as his were making a killing on betting on them to fail. When people who shouldn't have gotten a loan in the first place surprise! defaulted on
their loans, big banks got paid. That's what the bailout was for. We paid banks to pay other banks what they were owed. You won't hear either or
them talk about that, though. Wonder why? Oh yeah, they're both owned by Wall Street.
