Top 7 Lies of the First Debate

By Sheila Samples

Do facts matter? The early analysis of a debate is always superficial. Who was more aggressive? Who had the best zingers? Who sounded like they knew what they were talking about? It's a lot easier to look at body language and mood and make a quick judgment than to actually dig into the facts. Of course, facts matter. While a candidate may sound great telling a lie, if it's a lie then"well"it's a lie. Tuesday's debate featured no shortage of lies.
