    Guaranteed these figures were reshuffled for expediency: something like the female debate moderators supporting the current President's ambitions.

    When romney is up in the polls, the polls are accurate.

    When romney is down in the polls, the polls are inaccurate.

    When unemployment is above 8%, the rate is accurate.

    When unemployment is below 8%, the rate is inaccurate.

    Got it.

    Why does the Republican candidate find fault with factcheckers? Whether "realtime" or "post-debate" he seems to get upset that many of his statements are found to be false.

    Although we understand about realtime factcheck. When you have realtime factchecking, the audience watching the debate is told that the candidate's comments are wrong. With post-debate factchecking, most of those viewers are long gone and don't necessarily learn that the candidate's comments were wrong, so they end up believing what he said.

    So is Romney, in the words of Newt Gingrich, a Massachusetts moderate or is he a Tea Party darling. The world wants to know.

    Which Mitt? As we all know, he remakes himself from minute to minute depending on the people to whom he's speaking. He makes himself what he thinks he needs to be to get what he wants.

    There's no solid core of "Mitt" to be found. I think the closest we can find of any "real Mitt" comes from the things he says when he doesn't think people can hear him. The disrespect and disregard for, and mis-chracterization of, nearly half the people in the country is a good example (and he wasn't really just talking about the people who would vote for Obama).

    Mitt pandered to the far right to get the nomination. Now he's trying to etch-a-sketch himself, and hope that people don't remember that, so he can pander to the middle to try to get elected. There's nothing solid about him, or what he would want to do. That is NOT what the country needs.

    Accepting for the sake of argument that socialism is present (which I don't), please explain why you thik the fascism proposed by the far right is more desirable.
