This time the he said, she said was between Mitt Romney and the debate host Candy Crowley. Romney said Obama took two weeks to change the incident at the Benghazi, Libyan embassy from a demonstration to a terror attack. Obama spoke up but Crowley spoke for him telling Romney he was wrong. As Obama claimed, Crowley confirmed the President did it the next day in the Rose Garden. Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three of his staff were killed.
There have been misstatements on both sides but Romney holds the record with some major distortions. Dr. Billy Kidd, a senior researcher and writing on OpposingViews.com compiled the real facts:
Re. taxes and social programs, “The presidential race is a clear cut battle between whether the rich will get $1 trillion in free entitlements from the government or whether the middle class and the poor will keep their entitlements, like Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid, as well as jobless benefits.”
“The Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, promises to downsize Medicare, so that older folks will have to pay thousands of dollars more a year for their healthcare.”
“Mitt Romney, has only one major plan to promote new jobs, which is to lower taxes; yet taxes already are the lowest they have been in 60 years and the plan is simply a handout to wealthy Americans.”
“One billionaire gave the Republican campaign $40 million dollars with the specific request that the next president bomb Iran and force the revaluation of the Chinese dollar, the renminbi, upwards.”
“Ninety percent of Americans are not even aware that a vote for the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, means going to war against Iran, the ramifications of which could cause the price of gasoline to hit $10-a-gallon.”

Kidd makes a frightening statement that should make any true American thinker wonder where this world is going. He said: “Americans are mostly not interested in the facts concerning elections”
