    This theme has been beat to death.

    I didn’t watch the “debate” because my mind is already made up to vote Democratic. On the radio (the Bill Press show) they are skewering Jim Lehrer on his pisspoor job of “moderating”.

    Obama allowed Romney to get away with lies on pre-existing conditions, welfare, tax cuts (really, Romney? a 20% tax cut is not a tax cut?), and Medicaid. Romney’s campaign had to come on afterwards and re-assert all of the policies he denied in the debate. It was a cynical attempt to lie when people are paying attention, take it all back afterwards when fewer people are paying attention. I’m disappointed in Obama for not calling him on such blatant lies, but it hardly makes me like Romney more.

    Guess President Obama was still thinking about how to respond to 8+ percent unemployment, or 47 millon on food stamps or average lost median of $4000 per family income or the 90 Billion in subsidies for Green Energy.

    I agree. It was cute and on a whim. I think so many things have become beaten to death in this campaigne from both sides.

    If you think being a rude agressive fool like Romney is winning we are in deep trouble.

    The Curtain was pulled back, and the naked Emporer stood there…no TelePrompter…no hope…no change.

    Way to Go, Varvel…!!!
    I watched all 90 minutes of Debate # l, and Lehrer lost control on the first or second “2 minute answer” of Obama, who began a night-long filibuster…..and Lehrer being a PBS Liberal, did not “interupt” the President until much later, a feeble effort that roused Obama’s anger….and Lehrer had to omit an entire segment on Qs on “government”……
    -
    Both candidates agree ahead of the debates on the rules…but no one can make Obama obey rules….proven since Jan.2009.

    Orthodox Catholic, well said. Obama and all the Democratic Liberals got a shock, they saw the REAL Romney, not the invented charicature they ran millions of dollars of ads against.

    You really think that “Tuck” Carlson beat him? What a joke that is.

    The way they acted you would almost think that it was scripted that way. Remember the Dems and Repubs control this whole thing and write it out in secret. It is a sham of all shams.

    “Winner? I’d call it a draw, lean to Mitt on style points verbally, lean to Obama on the style point attitude. Lean to Romney on message, lean to Obama on control.”

    So looking like you have to pee or being a whipping post is “control”?

    ““Adults can discuss our issues without all the rancor!” Which implies “The reason we haven’t been able to get things done is the obstructionist in the Congress.” Now Mitt tried his dangdest to get Obama to actually say that out loud several times during the evening. Obama didn’t take the bait. "

    Mitt brought up how Obamacare was passed in the middle of the night without any support on the other side. Obama had NOTHING on that expect that it was the same as Mitts Mass. Care thing, and Mitt shut him down on that! So how could this be? Obama has done nothing else. as Mitt put it. You spent 2 years getting Obamacare I will spend it on getting JOBS! Obama had NOTHING to say about that. So Obama loses.

    “Obama’s strongest observation of the night was (not quoting) ‘He says he’s going to reduce taxes while being revenue neutral, but he won’t tell you what loopholes he’s going to close. He’s says he’s going to eliminate Obama care but he won’t tell you what he’s going to replace it with,. He says he’s going to increase education, but he won’t tell you how…”":

    Then Mitt went into his 5 point plan on how he is going to save the USA. His 5 point plan will bring in how he is going to be “revenue neutral” Obama again had nothing but his podium. And Obama sure admired his podium.

    His weakest points were (ironically) “…it’s math…arithmetic…” it came out as very lame. And “…If you think that…. then….then he’s your man…” it’s a dumb line that is sort of like the flea flicker, it only works once per game at most, usually once per season!
    .
    um yep!

    Mitt’s weakest points? I…….url a zing that fell flat.
    Ha ha ha ha ha

    I think that historically, Obama won. In that this debate was the real change that Obama promised in 2008. He promised to bring civility back to the electoral process. That was a civil debate. It was an exchange of ideas. It is now up to the Republicans to try to rise to the challenge. America starts to see what it looks like when there are adults talking.

    As opposed to the little boy that got schooled by Mitt. In that case history will show Mitt won hands down!

    It was amazing that the real MItt Romney from all his campaign positions to date, didn’t come to the debate last night. The etch-a-sketch was in the rock tumbler last night.

    -
    Obama’s “budget” is “The Lie”….double-counting “savings” and expecting the same dollars to pay for both Medicare and Obamacare with 30 million more patients….
    -
    Rodney….Romney continually explains that lowering the TAX RATE 20% across the board for all income levels’ taxes, is not equal to giving “the rich” a 20% less ADJ income tax OWED when the changes Romney will seek will have ended all the old deductions and exemptions and credits the “rich” are used to using to get a lower taxable amount of income.

    why are you Liberals so stupid?
