    not quite, but definitely better than the current alternative. Actually, not even close. This is the best ever example of the lesser of two evils.

    Hmph. And his Kryptonite is the Middle Class as well as anyone else he angered at the Debate.
    BTW – where did the $718M come from that I kept hearing Romney going on about? It kept popping up over and over, but no hints on where it came from.

    “S” is for stupid, like folks who ignored all his blatant lies? Oh, right, he was just being “flipper” again.

    Romney’s calculated aggression isn’t a bad thing. I think it’s very “presidential.” (I was waiting for Obama to give Romney his lunch money about halfway through the debate.)

  7. Respectful Troll

    Respectful Troll said, about 4 years ago is a good website on which to base comments for your debates with folks. Tho I do recall a fella telling me, “Don’t show me the proof, I know what I know.”
    That argument was about song lyrics and he was refusing to look at the lyrics on the album liner. It was if he had decided that even if the lyrics weren’t those he thought they were, they should be and so, for him, they WOULD be.
    Go back to Romney running for Governor, comments he made while governor, then look at his positions during the 2008 primaries. Your comment to dtroutma applies to you, me, & any of us who make unverifiable statements. I am grateful to the folks who have sent me links and info on which to make decisions and to correct me when I’m wrong. People who, like Dtroutma and others, have their opinions, but are still respectful and thoughtful.

    “Umm…it’s in Obamacare. Btw it’s 718 Billion cut from future Medicare.”

    That was a lie. Obama didn’t cut money from Medicare.

    “You know, just repeating your lies doesn’t make them true. Romney didn’t do any flipping.”

    Repeating lies may not make them true, but Romney sure did keep repeating his lies.

    This episode is far from over. Yes, Romney “won” the debate if the metrics are a college debating forum. But this is not college, this is about who will make the best president. And I don’t think lies and flip-flops makes Romney the man you can trust.
    Obama came out seemingly suffering from "sitting- presidents-first-debate syndrome. He started off in a somewhat low-key civilized manner respecting his opponent and following the moderator’s rules. Then Romney hits him with a blitz of lies, flip-flops, and half truths. Then Romney the bully, figuratively speaking, does to Lehrer (and Obama) what he did to that kid in the playground many years ago (forcefully cutting his hair). If you are the president with a responsibility to be factual, how do you sort out the issues in a two-minute segment with a moderator and an over-hyped opponent breathing down your neck?
    The media wants blood on the stage. It makes for good ratings and gives them content to chew over for the next few weeks. Matthews and Schultz almost went into cardiac arrest and the rest of the left joined in. FOX was over the moon. Has American politics become a made-for-TV reality show? Are debates not about choosing the best president, but about giving the networks maximum ratings and profits?
    The next three debates will be interesting. Don’t count out Obama just yet. He’s had a history of being three jumps ahead of his opponents when all is said and done.

    The lesser of two evils is still evil.

    Jeez, it’s October and neither candidate has come up with a surprise lie that the other one won’t have time to defend against. I guess they’re going to wait until the END of October.

    Seems to me, Obama was the only one getting caught in the lies.

    Medicare Advantage means you are dealing with a private insurance company. The private insurer has decided they need to charge more to pay for the extra benefits you get with Medicare Advantage.

    If you think Romney is going to do anything to cut into that insurance company’s profit margin, you aren’t paying attention.
