Making his first comments since his widely panned presidential debate performance, President Barack Obamareveals to supporters in Sloan’s Lake Park in Denver, Colorado that he had no idea who he was debating against Wednesday night, but it definitely wasn’t Mitt Romney.
See the POTUS’ comments below:
When I got on the stage, I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney.
But it couldn’t have been Mitt Romney, because the real Mitt Romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. The fellow on stage last night said he didn’t know anything about that.
The real Mitt Romney said we don’t need any more teachers in our classrooms, but the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers, can’t get enough of them.
The Mitt Romney we all know invested in companies that were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries, but the guy on stage last night said he doesn’t even know that there were such laws that encourage outsourcing. He’s never heard of them!
Never heard of tax breaks for companies that shift jobs overseas? He said that if it’s true he must need a new accountant.
Now, we know for sure it was not the real Mitt Romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant.
So, you see, the man on stage last night does not want to be held accountable for the real Mitt Romney’s decisions and what he’s been saying for the last year. And that’s because he knows full well that we don’t want what he’s been selling for the last year.
So Governor Romney may dance around his positions, but if you want to be president you owe the American people the truth.

This fire and conviction is definitely what we needed to hear in Wednesday’s debate. But it is completely understandable that the president was confused when a stranger pretending to be Mitt Romney showed up in his place.
