uring a campaign rally in Denver on Thursday, President Obama, bruised from a decisive loss to Mitt Romney in the first presidential debate on Wednesday, accused Romney of distorting the facts during their face-off. "If you want to be president, you owe the American people the truth," Obama said, jabbing Romney for fudging the truth about his proposed tax plan. "So here's the truth: Governor Romney cannot pay for his $5 trillion tax plan without blowing up the deficit or sticking it to the middle class. That's the math." Romney, meanwhile, continued to criticize the president's administration on its federal spending record, saying that the "trickle-down government that the president proposes is one where he will raise taxes on small business, which will kill jobs. I instead want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs."
