Obama: 'Real' Mitt Romney was missing from debate
Posted by
CNN White House Producer Gabriella Schwarz   

Denver (CNN) - President Barack Obama fired back at Mitt Romney in his first post-debate stop in Denver Thursday, contrasting the Romney he saw at the debate with the Romney seen on the campaign trail over the last year.

"We had our first debate last night, and when I got onto the stage I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney," Obama told the crowd of roughly 12,300. "But it couldn't have been the real Mitt Romney."



The "real" Romney, he said, has traveled the country promoting tax cuts for the wealthy, education plans that would hurt teachers and was a pioneer of outsourcing jobs overseas.

However, Wednesday night, Obama said Romney reversed those views because he "doesn't want to be held accountable for the real Mitt Romney" and "what he's been saying for the last year."

The president's comments echoed much of what his campaign has been peddling since the showdown, largely in response to criticism Obama did not bring his A-game to the first debate.

But at the campaign event, Obama said he spent the 90 minute event "trying to hit him down."

He also took on a much talked about moment, when Romney said eliminating funding for PBS, among other programs, would help drive down the debt.

"Thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on Big Bird. It's about time," Obama said. "We didn't know that Big Bird was driving the federal deficit, but that's what we heard last night. How about that?"

Responding to the crowd, Obama said "Elmo too?"

The event attendees were on the receiving end of a will.i.am DJ fest before hearing from former Transportation Secretary Frederico Pena, Colorado Sen. Mark Udall and then the president.

will.i.am., of Black Eyed Peas fame, is an ardent supporter of the president and attended the debate Wednesday night. An aide to the musician said he plans to help the president's re-election effort "as much as we possibly can," adding that he will join the president next in Ohio next week.

Deprived last night of his Straw Man, Obama seeks to stuff the hay back into the dummy he lugs around with him.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Earth calling empty chair-boy.

The Romney only cares for the rich talking point, no longer works. It went out the door when Romney cited how many were on food stamps and how much in billions you wasted on green energy while bankrupting coal and the natural gas Ohio is pumping up right now giving them a trickle of hope in jobs and home sales.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Wonder if Federico Pena talked about his career at Vestar Capital, a venture capitalist firm??   :pondering:

I'm guessing not.

They respond to any criticism like petulant children.  Oblahblah is probably still shocked that somembody DARED to speak to him in terms suugesting that he may be less than perfect.

I suspect there's a lot of wound-licking going on in Camp Oblahblah today.

Children's Television Network earns millions upon millions of dollars every year. Why should the taxpayer subsidize their programs?

Obama sounds like the implosion has reached criticality.

Does he think statements like that will win voters back?

Glenn Beck just said - remember when Obama and MO went to the Waldorf ordered champaign, caviar, etc... well last night after the debate the Romney family all went backstage to unwind, Romney was sitting there with his granddaughter while one of the sons made peanut butter sandwiches for everyone's dinner with a plastic knife.... and jar of PB and a loaf of bread.
