Mitt Romney was channeling Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth! Check out these 27 myths that he spouted on Wednesday night. For example:
- Saying that he supports insurance for people with preexisting conditions: "Only people who are continuously insured would not be discriminated against because they suffer from pre-existing conditions. This protection would not be extended to people who are currently uninsured."
- Claiming that half the green firms Obama has supported have gone out of business. "As of late last year, only “three out of the 26 recipients of 1705 loan guarantees have filed for bankruptcy, with losses estimated at just over $600 million.”
- Attacking Obama for cuts to the military. "Romney is referring to the sequester, which his running mate Paul Ryan supported. Obama opposes the military cuts and has asked Congress to formulate a balanced approach that would avoid the trigger."
