    Apparently so.

    Agreed. He had no control. He was not able to keep the candidates on subject, or to keep them to their appointed times. At the least, he could have steered them back to the original question when they constantly strayed from it….we can hope the next debate is better.

    Mitt out shouted both Obama and Lehrer, but didn’t make any real points, other than reversing all of what he stood for until five minutes before the debate. So, if volume, of decibels and lies counts, Mitt did win.

    Obama did do a poor job, actually, because he tried, most of the time, to actually follow the rules of the “debate”.

    Lehrer also did a poor job with BOTH CANDIDATES, by not shutting them down and keeping them on track.

    Poor “debate” all around. But, that has become the recent history of debates in general, and the general public hasn’t a clue how these “discussions” are supposed to be conducted.

    Gee, does it have anything to do with the “shout them down” media we have today??

    Especially when Jim found out he would lose his job if Mitt wins

    I think the moderator needs a buzzer to honk and cut either candidate off when they go on and on and on, or go over his time limit

    Yes, I was going to say, Clay seems to have trouble with the notion that he’s clearly behind the loser…

    So funny the libs on this site can’t even admit defeat when it’s so obvious. Good times.

    Proving the old adage about a stopped clock, the Republicans won this one. The Democrats need to stop making excuses and look ahead.

    Great cartoon! I totally agree. Romney repeated talking points over and over. It’s always easier to critisize and offer some vague future.

    I’m afraid I didn’t see the link before, but I see it now. Thank you.

    no … unfortunately the clear loser is the American public. Do we really think that either party is out there trying their best to do what is right for OUR interests?

    More Pro wrestling. More of the same. He won! No! He was beaten soundly!

    That debate was actually more civil than I expected, but it was painful to watch Jim Lehrer. Like watching a senile substitute teacher manage a group of halfway house teens.

    Obama’s not the same as in 2008. Big surprise. Mitt is not the same as when he got the nomination. October surprise!

    I learned and I typed the instructions into a word document, so that I would remember! At least you taught one.

    We ALL lost, when the 2-faced Party (of the 1%) wrested control of debates from the League of Women Voters. They would have had other parties in, with some REAL ideas.

    Gee, ya suppose large money changed hands, with the (corporate-owned) TV networks?
