Speculation based on..nothing as there is no pic or anything.
Or a clearcut tossing of paper onto the podium.
Actually, I didn't know the rule of no bringing notes. I seen, and rewound, the paper drop when the debate first stopped..only to see if I could make
out what was on it...but didn't know it was against the rules. I was actually wondering why Obama didn't bring some quick notes. Seems like a good
idea to have accurate facts.
He lied a lot (unless you think Romney campaigned on covering pre-existing conditions and not lowering taxes on the wealthy.). Politicians typically
twist and bend the truth of course..rarely flat out deadpan lie...but whatever...factcheckers will (and have been) ripping them apart. But if there is
actual cheating going on, either way, then one of two things need to happen.
Either some sort of public consequence needs to happen to the cheaters, or rules need to change where a person can bring in a single piece of paper
with facts and figures on it..a cheat sheet sort of thing..just one though, legal size, and a certain font size. Would actually work against them if
they put too much on there and forced to squint and spend ages looking for the correct numbers, possibly losing momentum.
Personally, I think notes and such would be good. I want actual facts verses whatever the candidates memorized the night before and wonder if your
hearing just random numbers.
