    Romney Cheated in Debate?

    "No props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by any candidate."



    Someone suggested the paper was blank, this is one of the top comments in reply to it

    #1. Why would he bring out a piece of paper from his pocket if it was blank. Pen and paper was already provided, it was on the podium.#2. Obama did not take anything from his pocket and put it on the podium.
    #3 Obama was writing with the pen and paper that was provided by the debate committee.
    #4 Yes, while you are right there is no way to prove that there was something written on that piece of paper that Romney brought, it is rather quite odd and suspicious.
    #5 This is not bias, just facts.

    I personally don't think it's that big a deal, but interesting nonetheless. I think they should be allowed notes, but he did seem to violate the rules.

    Re: Romney Cheated in Debate?

    It is fairly common knowledge that Romney carries a small piece of paper to debates with him that simply reads "Dad". It is to remind him of the strong politician that his father was and that he is watching over him in heaven. There was no cheating or lying, he was simply far better prepared and far more knowledgeable than Obama regarding the economy. I think that you will find that Obama is not the brightest bulb in the box without a teleprompter...this is just the first candidate that has faced him that has the intelligence to expose him. I don't expect Obama to win any if the debates although he will show better because he will be better prepared.

    Rachel Maddow actually had a piece on it a couple days ago. Her comment was that the Romney campaign said that it was a handkerchief. She started out like she had something fishy on her hand but went on to say that if anybody is looking for a reason for Obama's poor performance they have to look at Obama and showed a piece where Romney actually used that handkerchief during the debate.

    This is a non issue.
