The Post Truth Debate: Romney Lies

It's hard to debate someone who stands there and tells baldfaced lies about his positions:

Juan Cole: If ever there was an example of a post-truth debate, this was it.

Daily Kos, Barbara Morrill: Mitt Romney Lying to Victory: The results of Wednesday night's first presidential debate are in and it's official: Mitt Romney won round one. He was aggressive, he was decisive, he delivered. Of course he also lied through his teeth for most of the debate. 

Paul Krugman: Romney needs to be held accountable for dishonesty on a huge scale. 

Michelle Goldberg: Romney lied brazenly about everything—notably on taxes—yet over and over again an honest but listless and meandering Obama failed to effectively challenge him. 

Tommy Christopher: Rocky Mountain Lie: Mitt Romney Lost Debate In The Only Way That Doesn’t Matter At All 

Daily Kos: To Romney: Lying is Winning & Romney Even Called His Sons Liars at Debate
