The Rat Faced Git Goes to Rat Mouth FL

I knew Mittens couldn't do it. He couldn't manage to get through one and a half hours of television time -- and only half of which was his -- without lying.

His "Apology Tour" snark probably wasn't the biggest one, but it's one of the most smarmy and repeated ones, and Obama called him right out on it. He also called him out on several others as well, at one point saying, "Governor, nothing you've said is true" after a typical Romney tirade.

According to FactCheck.com, both sides came out either with some blatant lying -- Romney -- or some minor misstatements -- Obama. [those are my interpretations, anyway...]

On balance, though, Romney came off as a lying rat faced git who lost the debate on points and content and style. RepubliCONs will likely disagree with that assessment, but fuck 'em, I can be as big a proponent of confirmation bias as they can.

BTW, speaking of "rat face gits", you did know that Boca Raton (the site of the debate) is Spanish for Rat Mouth, didn't you? Perfect venue for Governor Etch-A-Sketch to be all speechifyin'.

Okay, so this time I got to watch the debate at home on my own high-def television, not at a crowded and noisy Democratic Party debate-watching soiree in a restaurant like the last two, and so I got to see Romney's perspiring face and fake-ass smile up close and personal. Not so much of that unjustifiably-overconfident fratboy smirk this time -- you know what I'm talking about: That face that made you want to scream obscenities and throw a lamp through the television screen. No, the boy was actually sweating it out big time, and you could see the cords in his neck stand out as he clenched his jaw and gritted his teeth.

Too bad, Little Mittens. If you can't take the heat, you shouldn't play with the big boys.

The most amazing thing about the evening was Mitts endorsement of Obama for President. On every foreign policy issue that came up he agreed and supported. His fine tuning offered the criticism, but he threw his support to the President on every issue.

That is by some conservative web sites this morning, pretty scary shit, but I'm sure by noon they will fall in line again. But deep down, these guys gotta wonder what they signed up for.

I just read your comment and am somewhat confused. You state in 2012 we have 282 ships. In 1917 we had 342.
Sorry mate, but are you sure of your numbers? Because if you are, then mittens was right. I think that Obama was right, but truthfully, I haven't read the transcript and pretty much just let the numbers flash by.

According to U.S. Navy Active Ship Force Levels, 1886-present there were 342 active duty Navy ships in April 1917; there were 285 as of Sept 2011. My mistake, and I've deleted that snarky comparison. Damn.
