OK, OK, Obama stubbed his toe; had a very bad day; looked tired; looked down in the debate. Ok--got it. Check, check. Now, could we move on to the Biden-Ayn Rand show brought to you by the letter 'O'?
Let's get back to reality. Did Romney move one Hispanic Obama supporter to the Romney column? Even one? I doubt it. How about women who would lose control of their bodies? How about equal pay for women? Any women move into the Romney column? A few.
How About African Americans? You know the answer.
Go to the tape! I have yet to see any compelling evidence of a pro-Romney movement. The media is so sad. They thought they had Obama on the ropes. Nope! Poor old Romney. He can't keep his story straight on taxes. He still refuses to release his returns. He has been knee deep in the Cayman Islands. He wants to voucherize Medicare or does he? He would repeal Obamacare on day one, or would he? Don't know.
He wants a 20 percent across-the-board income tax cut that will cost us $4.8 trillion. Or does he? He favors the cut on Monday, Wednesday and Friday but not on Tuesdays and Thursdays!
I am looking forward to the Ryan-Biden show. Ryan will not be as bad as you think, but Biden will be very good. Look up not down.

I read that Obungle wanted to keep his dignity in that debate, which is really funny considering how he fell into the infantile Big Bird trap and had his campaign cut an assinine ad regarding same.
Frankly, I don't give a damn about HIS dignity, I am worried about keeping MY dignity in retirement. The fact that he probably doesn't get that makes him as detached from reality as he has tried to make Rmoney seem. Maybe the man is miscast. Maybe he should have stuck to the law and aimed for a dignified judgeship sometime in the future.
Face it, this race may not really be about Big Bird but the Dems have something of a Turkey on their hands and all the whistling past the graveyard won't cure that unless Obungle is willing, for once in his life, to come out swinging.

Must have moved somebody, Ed. Romney is leading Obama today.

The only thing Romney is clear about is he wants to be POTUS at any cost. If it means lying and stealing his way to the top, that's what Romney does best.
Debate I was indeed pathetic. Obama underperformed and Romney foamed at the mouth. I'm beginning to see how Romney does it. He rants and raves loud enough to distract opponents from what is really important and then he turns it all around and makes it their fault.
Romeny is on a mission, a divine mission, to establish his kingdom on earth.

Even though the corporate media refuses to cover them, there are real serious issues in this election and both Obama and Romney are on the wrong side of most of them. How about bringing the bipartisan assault on civil liberties into the debate? What are the candidates positions on cowardly, murderous drone strikes? What would the candidates do to reverse U.S. obstructionism in climate change negotiations? What specific actions would the candidates take to correct the gross inequity in income distribution?
Many important issues, but all we get as potential voters is an obsession over how much money each candidate can hoover out of the pockets of their sponsors and bickering over Big Bird.

Wait a minute here Ed. Your argument is that there is a certain percentage of the voting public that Romeny can't and or will never get to vote for him? Now why does that sound strangely familiar?
