VIDEO | 3 Chics Politico Presents The 2nd 2012 Presidential Debate With President Obama & Governor Mitt Romney

UPDATED

GO Mr. President!

Round Two of the 2012 Presidential debates airs tonight at 9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/8:00-9:30 p.m. CT. watch it live on CNN, MSNBC, C-SPAN, AND CURRENT TV.  Join 3 Chics Politico for live-blogging, starting at 7 p.m. CT.  Feel free to drop links, pics, videos, and commentary at anytime.

Keep an eye out for Romney’s lines tonight. We know he’s been dishonest with Americans on his and Paul Ryan’s extreme policies. tonight’s debate is being moderated by Candy Crowley, CNN’s Chief Political Correspondent in a town hall format. Romney doesn’t have any where to hide tonight, and he will have to answer questions from the audience.

How will Romney explain the Romney/Ryan tax plan?

Former President Bill Clinton explains it here:

THE MATH JUST DOESN’T ADD UP

But here’s a tool you can use, Mitt Romney:

How will Romney explain the Romney/Ryan Jobs plan?

Mitt Romney may bring up his five-point jobs plan at tonight’s debate, but his math doesn’t add up — the very studies Romney cites disprove his own claims. This morning, the Washington Post published a fact-check debunking Romney’s dishonest claim that he’ll create 12 million jobs.

The Washington Post’s final rating on Romney’s jobs math? Four Pinocchios. Read the full review here and then share the facts about Romney’s arithmetic with your friends and family.

How will Mitt Romney explain the Romney/Ryan Medicare-VOUCHER plan?

Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan have a plan to turn Medicare into a voucher system — and they say that shouldn’t worry anyone. But a nonpartisan report released yesterday shows that if Romney’s plan had been in place this year for today’s seniors, nearly 60 percent would have had to pay more to get the same coverage that they enjoy today.   Report: Seniors will have to pay more under Romney’s plan to turn Medicare into a voucher system Read about it here.  and pass it on!

On Massachusetts
Romney likes to brag that he balanced the budget in Massachusetts without raising taxes. But as governor, he created or raised more than 1,000 taxes and fees, including ones on nurses, barbers, electricians, and more. Romney talks a lot about his bipartisan record as governor, but both Massachusetts Democrats and Republicans agree that Romney was an ineffective leader. Check out this graphicabout how Romney’s fees cost middle-class Bay Staters millions, and share it with others.

How will Mitt Romney explain the Romney/Ryan stance on trade with China?

Romney likes to talk tough on China — but he stands to profit from Chinese companies that use the same unfair trade practices he says that he’d combat as president.

Let’s get out the vote folks! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012

    Mind The Binder

    http://blog.thephoenix.com/BLOGS/talkingpolitics/archive/2012/10/16/mind-the-binder.aspx

    Hey, I know about that binder! And guess what — Mitt Romney was lying about it.

    From the rush transcript:

    CROWLEY: Governor Romney, pay equity for women?

    ROMNEY: Thank you. An important topic, and one which I learned a great deal about, particularly as I was serving as governor of my state, because I had the chance to pull together a cabinet and all the applicants seemed to be men.

    And I — and I went to my staff, and I said, “How come all the people for these jobs are — are all men.” They said, “Well, these are the people that have the qualifications.” And I said, “Well, gosh, can’t we — can’t we find some — some women that are also qualified?”

    And — and so we — we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet.

    I went to a number of women’s groups and said, “Can you help us find folks,” and they brought us whole binders full of women.

    I was proud of the fact that after I staffed my Cabinet and my senior staff, that the University of New York in Albany did a survey of all 50 states, and concluded that mine had more women in senior leadership positions than any other state in America.

    Now one of the reasons I was able to get so many good women to be part of that team was because of our recruiting effort.

    Not a true story.

    What actually happened was that in 2002 — prior to the election, not even knowing yet whether it would be a Republican or Democratic administration — a bipartisan group of women in Massachusetts formed MassGAP to address the problem of few women in senior leadership positions in state government. There were more than 40 organizations involved with the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus (also bipartisan) as the lead sponsor.

    They did the research and put together the binder full of women qualified for all the different cabinet positions, agency heads, and authorities and commissions. They presented this binder to Governor Romney when he was elected.

  7. Romney Surrogates Lash Out At Candy Crowley

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/17/romney-surrogates-candy-crowley_n_1972389.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000003

    HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Much of the talk in the spin room following Tuesday night’s presidential debate centered on the role played by moderator Candy Crowley, who stopped candidates from running over time and, in the debate’s most memorable moment, corrected Mitt Romney on his criticism of President Barack Obama’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.

    The Romney campaign’s top spokesman, Eric Ferhnstrom, said that it wasn’t his tact to “complain about the refs.”

    “I think Candy was dandy,” he added.

    But if Ferhnstrom wasn’t venting anger about the night’s proceedings, others were. Among the Romney surrogates, there was noticeable anger over Crowley’s handling of the debate. In particular, virtually all of the surrogates argued she had wrongly asserted Obama had declared the attacks on the consulate in Libya an act of terrorism.

  10. Fact check: Romney’s record of hiring women

    http://www.boston.com/politicalintelligence/2012/10/16/fact-check-romney-record-hiring-women/r3gqpykaQudNNqigmLZfuJ/story.html

    During the second presidential debate, Mitt Romney touted his efforts to hire women as governor of Massachusetts.

    “We took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet.

    “I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks,’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”

    Romney, however, did not have a history of appointing women to high-level positions in the private sector. Romney did not have any women partners as CEO of Bain Capital during the 1980s and 1990s.

    The venture capital and private equity fields were male-dominated, to be sure, especially during Romney’s time. Women started to break into the upper echelons of the firm after it started a hedge fund, called Brookside in 1996.

    Today, 4 of out of 49 of the firm’s managing directors in the buyout area are women.
