Some folks in the media  had a lot of fun poking jabs at both  President Obama and Mitt Romney over last weeks debate.  The term "27 lies in 38 minutes" is now a media "talking point."

The slogan is now on T-Shirts, Banners, and being blasted on the tube...

 Now get ready for Rep. Paul Ryan to battle VEEP "Joltin" Joe Biden in their debate on Wednesday from Kentucky. Serious?

Anyway, Los Cerritos Community Newspaper got POUNDED with TENS of THOUSANDS of NEW READERS over the weekend... thanks ThinkProgress.org for doing the heavy lifting on this one....

MANCHESTER, NH - AUGUST 20: Republican vice presidential candidate, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) speaks to supporters at a campaign rally at Saint Anselm College on August 20, 2012 in Manchester, New Hampshire. He joined Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for a town hall-style event just two days after President Barack Obama made campaign stops in New Hampshire.

 "Pundits from both sides of the aisle have lauded Mitt Romney’s strong debate performance, praising his preparedness and ability to challenge President Obama’s policies and accomplishments. But Romney only accomplished this goal by repeatedly misleading viewers. He spoke for 38 minutes of the 90 minute debate and told at least 27 myths:

1) “[G]et us energy independent, North American energy independent. That creates about 4 million jobs”. Romney’s plan for “energy independence” actually relies heavily on a study that assumes the U.S. continues with fuel efficiency standards set by the Obama administration. For instance, he uses Citigroup research based off the assumption that “‘the United States will continue with strict fuel economy standards that will lower its oil demand.” Since he promises to undo the Obama administration’s new fuel efficiency standards, he would cut oil consumption savings of 2 million barrels per day by 2025.

 2) “I don’t have a $5 trillion tax cut. I don’t have a tax cut of a scale that you’re talking about.” A Tax Policy Center analysis of Romney’s proposal for a 20 percent across-the-board tax cut in all federal income tax rates, eliminating the Alternative Minimum Tax, eliminating the estate tax and other tax reductions, would reduce federal revenue $480 billion in 2015. This amount to $5 trillion over the decade.
