The Left Actually Believes Romney ‘Cheated’ During the Debate

This made a number of people flip out, just read the headline from the Daily Kos: “Romney May Have Cheated During Debate With Notes; Surprised? No. That’s What Lying Cheats Do”

The rules of the presidential debates are clear about not bringing outside notes and presidents and aspirants have followed the rule for decades.
Video of the first eleven seconds of the debate available on YouTube shows Mitt Romney reaching into his pocket at the moment he is out of view of those in front of him, he used the lectern as a shield, and removing what appears to be folded papers from his pocket.

This debate just gets more and more entertaining for conservatives.
