Can we be convinced?

Unraveling political lies
Sheila Liaugminas | Oct 26 2012 | comment  
There’s a lot of dishonesty inherent in politics, sorry truth be told. It’s always there and especially in campaign season, every campaign season. But this time, distortions and twists of fact have ramped up to lying and accusing of lying.

Final presidential debate

First thoughts…Both campaigns are going to claim their guy won. But that depends on their criteria.

The town, the hall, and the presidential debate
Sheila Liaugminas | Oct 22 2012 | comment  
Analysis of almost every angle and moment in the townhall debate can be found just about everywhere online at any site remotely related to news and politics. I have my own moments of talking back to the television screen. And it has taken me days to get it posted because of so many intervening demands. But that hasn’t diminished one bit what happened in that debate.

The most lingering impression of last week’s presidential debate surprise was that President Obama was unable to articulate a defense of his record of the past four years or a coherent promotion of his plans for the next four years.
