After Mitt Romney's strong, although lie-filled and substance free performance at the debate last night, it seems his surrogate John Sununu is out to destroy the only good day in the news cycle Romney has had in months. Sununu appeared on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell and called President Obama "lazy and disengaged" in regard to his debate prep and performance the previous evening.
After he was done with the racist dog-whistles, he then spent the rest of the segment arguing with Mitchell about Mitt Romney's tax plan and their refusal to give specifics to come up with the dollars to match the tax cuts they want to give to the wealthiest individuals in America.
As President Obama repeatedly pointed out during the debate last night, and others have as well, Romney's numbers just don't add up unless you raise taxes on the middle class. Usually Sununu just rolls over Mitchell without much push back. It was nice to see her take a cue from Soledad O'Brien and take him on with some of the lies.
