I’m not going to make it to catch the debate at home— Should I risk getting shot as I leave the office late, or do I drive home now to barely make it?
Don’t get in a hurry Stewie, or get in an accident. But don’t want you shot either!
LMAO- It’s raining, but I’m a good driver…..leaving now, but I’ll be about 20 minutes late to the debate.
Obama the community organizer has stepped up for what I am not certain…lol
I’m so happy. Big surprise of life.
I pray that Romney will win big time.
Happy New Year !
G*d Bless you sweet sara. Happy New Year to you too!! 😀
Sorry, the Iike – not accepted !
If you have a smart phone, stream it on the ABC app, they give live video for events like this.
no need to rush. i am sure it will be re-broadcast. Romney held his own. i did not see or hear a flub. to all buckeyes: two demo-rats of Ohio House of Reps, Bill Patman and Ted Celeste have introduced HB-595. this bill will require concealed carry holders obtain permission of other property owners prior to entering on or into others
Keep Obama in President! He gaymee a phone.
Maybe Dear Leader can give her subtitles so’s we can understand her. Or teeth.
Please, dentures only. Implants run $4,000 and higher! Just imagine all the welfarites wanting dental implants.
I think that her city needs to dial back the fluoride in her tap water.
I cannot watch Obama. I will depend on all of you and Twitter to let me know how it goes.
Check out Dick Morris’ live tweets at DickMorris.com or https://twitter.com/DickMorrisTweet
Real-time analysis as the debate unfolds.
i understand fully how you feel. i had moral support of my wife, thanks to her i did not blow a gasket
It is inevitable the media will ask Romney about “the 47 percent.” Instead of answering it, Romney should pivot and say, “Let me tell you about the 100 percent. Obama has failed the 100 percent who have to buy gasoline. Obama has failed the 100 percent who will be paying interest on the Obama national debt for the rest of their lives. Obama has failed 100 percent of those who want to get a job and move on with their lives. Obama has failed everyone in the Middle East who had hoped the Arab Spring would lead to freedom by allowing it to turn into an Islamist winter.”
The country would be electrified.
I sure wish Newt could have been coaching him.
I wish Newt was debating him! (Obama)
If we get the tenacious, energetic Mitt who defeated Newt in Florida’s debate, we’ll do alright.
Very true. And I have no doubt they have at least conferred with Newt.
Love your avatar. LOL.
Newt’s on board. You can be sure of it.
That’s where Mitt should hit him with “your people.” Not that I’ll be holding my breath.
LOL! that would be great. The silence/tension would be so intense Wasserman’s hair might burst into a grease fire.
Debate Drinking Game http://www.nationaljournal.com/politics/national-journal-s-debate-drinking-game-guide-colorado-edition-20121002
I would add one, every time Obama says ‘Uuuh uh uuh’ to take a shot but you might not make it to the 3rd question.
I’ll be under the table before the first commercial break.
I already warned folks against that. You’ll die of alcohol poisoning.
Also anytime he says “I”.
Thank you Scoop.
Scoop, many thanks for making this available. Another night when I’ve been late at the office, and I know where I can find a stream without question when I get home.
If you’re watching Dennis Miller….he’s got it right. I trust Team Romney….let’s see.
What did Dennis say? (I don’t have FOX news) 🙁
He said Romney is doing fine considering the the media bias……he shouldn’t be an out of control attack dog and I agree.
Is this going to live stream the debate or give short video of it after the fact?
It will be live, continuous video feed stream. They’re not up just yet.
I wish Newt was here…………..
Don’t wish for Newt. Pray for Mitt.
Well said sir!
If I have to pray for him….he’s done.
I will say…please do not put too much pressure on Mitt. Obama will be called the Winner by the MSM and liberal jerks just for showing up. They will tell us how Mitt failed to deliver a knock out. IT IS BS!! They set this narrative all week claiming the President will lose and Mitt is a better debater just to tell us tonight how great the President did and hwo stiff and uneasy Mitt looked!
So be prepared and please do not buy the BS from the PUNDITS….MITT will do great and relax!! This is a set up for the MSM
Do like Mark Levin says…after the debate TURN OFF the TV do not get caught up in the Comments from Pundits…you will get yourself mad and claim how Lehrer was in for Obama…of course he is!!
I just know they will try to pull another Oh the President did so well much better then we thought….how Presidential…that is the MSM…does not mean a thing except their bias!!
GO MITT!!! I wait until tomorrow to listen to Rush and others for analysis…I will not even watch one moment of the BS from the Pundits after!
Wish us all well at TRS!!
I’m watching it from Canada, on SUN News. Much better commentators, knowledgeable and so unlike the FOX talking heads. I’m taking Levin’s advice. All I want to do is watch the debate-leave the postmortem to the talking heads tomorrow.
Well if Bill Maher declares Romney the winner, MSM does not have much of chance to cover for the One. It would seem that MSM will either start throwing him under the bus or put him on life support. Either way, the MSM will be done if they tried to cover this one up.
Just watched Bill O’Reilly and Dennis Miller while flipping around on the gas-fired TeeVee, lookin’ for who is covering the debate.
I swear, O’Reilly sounds like he’s had more than a few drams of The Macallan.
I said that I would not watch this debate
because I can’t stand looking a ZERO –
Nothing to see anyway
RUSH said that OBAMA would be declared the winner in any event
I agree that ZERO will win >>>>>>>> ZERO 48% (WINNER)
Romney will lose >>>>>>>>46%
If this is the result – This will be proof that the MSM is being bribed
Omunna go watch it with the K~Missus.
Catch you folks after the afters.
I will be sipping. Not playing ay drinking game. Just enough to keep from smashing the old TV.
Remember to put your signs up saying “OBama is lying”.
The most treasured button in the world…the mute button on the remote.
I’m watching it on SUN News from Canada. Good journalists, very little spin, unlike the American talking heads.
I plan to watch ONLY the debate, none of the follow up, even on SUN, even here. Seriously, I am so sick of the Monday morning quarterbacking everywhere, I may leave my computer off, tomorrow. All I want to do is watch the debate, nothing more, nothing less.
The puppet speakes!!!!!
romney is getting to him, BIG Time!! Anybody that doesn’t see Romney’s big big win is just an idiot!!! IMO! The Lame Media has no NO NO leg to stand on NOW. BO is just being a shill for his supportes now.!!!!
So who’s going to count all of the “uh’s” tonight from Obama?
I did. There were 32,489.
are you sure? i thought i heard two more.
I might have missed a couple when I went to get something to throw at the radio. my bad. 😉
So who determined that this first debate would be on Obama’s Wedding anniversary? Seems like a plug for sweetness to start the debates off which gives Obama a tender touch advantage that he doesn’t deserve.
A plug? A puke maybe 🙂
My God – how many lies just in the first sentences from zero.
5 Million jobs in the past 30 months in the private sector??? Housing going up not down, car industry roaring back while shares tank. Keeping count of the lies will be a full time job tonight.
I’m sorry p m. What’s that? I can’t hear you, too busy wiping up all the blood off my floor from my bleeding eyes and ears.
🙂 Don’t worry – he got his a$$ kicked tonite!
Play nice? Don’t be a b*tch Romney.
“President Obama. Could you tell us the formula for the Fool-Aid you give your supporters to drink?”
So is anybody having trouble signing in the chat roll? I’ve tried both using chat roll and Facebook and its stays suck in the sign in. :/
I didn’t have trouble signing in originally but it froze up halfway through
I saw you on there for a couple of minutes my Texan friend, but I got booted and had to sign in again myself.
Good grief….. it is so tough to listen to O (POS) ramble. So far Mitt is doing great!
I have already dozed off twice. Its time to go to bed, or get up and do something productive. It doesn’t look like Romney is going to hit Obama very hard anyway. I’ll check in tomorrow and see what people thought about the whole thing.
The ignorant swine isn’t even looking at Romney – low class POS.
Romney’s doing well.
Here we go >>>
The first of more to come >>>>>>>>>>>http://debbieweil.com/uploads/image/dog-barfing-brad-fitzpatrick.jpg
Here’s one for you Joe. https://www.facebook.com/robert.dukerich#!/photo.php?fbid=4629283259642&set=a.1221071416476.2034199.1519652544&type=1&theater
hey joe, you do not have to eat what Obama dishes out.
so far Romney is kicking butt!!
He’s got Romney on defense.
That three letter word, jobs. Good for Romney.
The only person I can think of that might need to watch the debates to make up their mind who to vote for, IS THE BUBBLE BOY.
For me the debates were good to differentiate between Primary Candidates, but even with the MSM PACs spin I feel sorry for those who haven’t got it figured out by now, an I don’t see how they will be able to make a decision from these debates.
As soon as the debates are over the great undecided masses will be told how great the TPROTUS did and how sorry Romeny is.
Just now the Woun said to Lehrer to move on to another topic!!!!!!!!!!!! This Bo guy has an megalomaniac complex!!!!!!
Obama is the one who has the recipe for job growth? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Romney is getting it done, the woun, not so much!!!!
It was predicted that Obama would lie repeatedly throughout the entire debate, and he is doing just that. He knows all of America is watching, and he also knows that almost half of them are dumb as as post.
Watch the lines of undecided voters on the bottom of the screen. Romney is making him look foolish. A true businessman against a Chicago Street Organizer.
Romney could talk about the economy for two days, and never run out of words. Obama has a only a few canned answers, supplied to him by his handlers.
Romney will win this portion of the debate.
Can’t wait for Ryan to mop the floor with Biden. Does Biden know that 1+1=3 yet?
It’s 11. Geez
Bad me. Back to post grad school for me 🙂 Or to O’Bambi’s re-education camp…..
I wouldn’t be surprised if O had a screen on his stand and was reading typed answers.
You see after the stage was clear, how the zero flunkie retrieved zero’s notes from the top of the podium then looked underneath – making sure odumbo didn’t leave any evidence???
No I didn’t see that, but I just get the feeling that is what happened because there is no way he can think on his feet…or his butt for that matter.
Oh, agree, most definitely. Neither feet nor butt, and we know there’s nothing between his ears, eh?
It would seem that Bill Maher agrees that Obama needs his teleprompter for the next couple of debates. He also declared Romney the winner, ouch!
Obama is not comfortable talking about the economy. You can see it.
as Reagan would have said “there you go again”. everytime Obama was talking of taxes, i would hear Reagan. the libs do not understand that the economy is not a fixed size of pie. rising tide floats all boats
Romney’s sounding pretty good.
Romney is doing well enough to make me almost forget the ugly primaries. Keep it coming.
Romney is a businessman and knows what he is talking about-Obama just knows how to transfer the wealth of others to those that don’t want to work!
Gasp! Obama, your pants are on fire!
Obama cut waste in health care to blow it on windmills and solar crap.
If you can take ten spending cuts to every spending growth, why not just take 9 spending cuts. It’s the same thing, Mr President, but eliminates the extra spending.
Why is Obamney PLEADING so much?
Romney is like Muhammad Ali tonight.
Obama is getting more response from women than men. Again, I’m looking at the undecided voter lines running on the screen.
What network is that?
We’ve been all over this before. It’s the lower brain size.
There you go again, doc.
As a certain someone might say 🙂
LOL knock it off silly.
WOW. Go Romney!
From Twitter… LOL…
David Burge [email protected]
OH YEAH BITCH?! I KILLED BIN LADEN #ObamasOnlyHope
Romney is starting to take the gloves off. I love it.
He knows what he is talking about. Truth = Strength
Obama had to think about the corporation he wanted to call evil. Couldn’t remember ExxonMobile! ha ha. Why not throw out last election’s evil corporation, Haliburton?
Where is everyone watching this debate where the lines are moving? I am on FOX and I don’t see it at the bottom of the TV, is it a different station?
Is it me or is Obama ALL OVER THE PLACE?
Yes he is. (imo)
CSpan for the win.
I am not watching I am just reading the comments by my fellow scoopers(Patriots). Keep them coming please. The reason I am not watching is I cant hear Obama its like chalk on a whiteboard
I know it is very painful……
Me too. Cannot stand the Liar-in-Chief.
Had to do the same thing. My wife could no longer stand listening to the President’s lie after lie after lie.
muted sound for obama, unmuted for romney.
I hear your pain proudhispanicconservative friend. I did watch it, and now I need a blood transfusion.
“That “young lady” spends $3,000 on birth control. I will be her sugar daddy and buy it for her.”
Holy cow…… O just brought up corporate tax deductions and sending jobs overseas. GE, anyone?????
I KNOW!!! I was yelling that at my radio!
my wife kept me from tormenting my dog. i was scaring my poor dog gertie
AWW Poor pup! LOL cousin, sorry, but that made me laugh.
Romney is smokin…….
It’s a CNN feed.
Well well well…
BHObama definitely sounds like he knows what he’s talking about.
Or, maybe, I just didn’t realize how the ‘truth’ is so stretchable and form fitting to make it sound like BHObama knows what he is talking about.
I can hardly wait for the fact checkers to reveal what the truth is and who is the most accurate truth talker.
Problem is, can we believe the fact checkers??
The ‘truth’ is what it is, regardless of what the fact checkers believe.
Maybe the fact checkers should start with the MANY times Romney says ‘that is just not the fact’ and variations of that, and compare it to the FEW times BHObama did NOT say Romney was not being factual.
Hmmm… THAT in itself is revealing.
Way to go Mitt! He is all business!!!
OK, that line was pretty good.
“You don’t just pick winners and losers, you just pick losers.”
An EXCELLENT point…
… ‘losers’ is aka Solyndra and et alli.
Romney playing leader. Obama playing follower.
Romney is kicking Obamas A$$
Yes we can.
…kick his a$$…back to Indonesia.
I have never enjoyed something so much. You have in Romney, a person who knows how to make money, and you have in Obama, a person who only knows how to spend money.
This is the difference you are going to take with you to the voting booth.
O’Bambi knows how to do 2 things, steal money and spend that stolen money.
Don’t forget lying!
Thank you! And lying about stealing and spending the stolen money.
Just ask any lib this question.
If I give you 10 million dollars and you have 2 choices, Give it to Obama or give it to Romney for them to personally invest for you and at the end of 1 year you get to keep any amount over that original 10 mil, who would you give the mil to?
States are the laboratories of democracy!!!!
Actually, they are sovereign Republics. I do wish Mitt would quit with that one. States aren’t test kitchens in anything.
Obama is getting a lesson in the economy and specifically taxes!
Social security structure is sound…. ha ha ha! Ponzi scheme is not sound.
Mitt Romney will win the presidency. He is providing optimistic ass kicking.
Feels like home run derby to me right now and its not the President doing the hitting!!
Obama is rambling!
He’s soooooooo boring. It looks like they made him lay off the drugs tonight, though.
The concurrent opinion at our house is that Romney is in the cat-bird seat right now! He is killing he Obama meme.
Romney go on Medicare!
Mitt is doing great!!!!!!
Obama will do better on the social issues like Social Security and Medicare. It was expected. Romney is for financial independence. He has to be careful here.
Obama has shrunk into his suit.
He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Just give her the pain pill.
Wow I didn’t know Obama cared so much for seniors!!
Obama cares for seniors the same way he cares for unborn babies.
Would that be the grandmother he threw under the bus?
The empty chair seems to have shown up tonight.
I was good in my high school debate class. I learned a lot.
Here is the mistake Obama is making. When Romney is speaking, Obama is always looking down. The body language that represents, tells you he is uncomfortable. You should look at your opponent when he is speaking, not at your notes.
Using body language alone, Romney is killing him.
Yes! Romney stares at Obama.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama had a screen that someone was typing answers to him.
The Won sounds shrill tonight.
Is he using his 2007 [email protected]
Obama is very bad without teleprompter.
If not for his teleprompter, he never would have been elected in the first place.
He is also very bad WITH it.
Just say it O- you believe more government is the answer for America!
Medicare is probably the WORST topic to nail down of them all. Once folks are on the doles it’s nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get them off.
Romney knows business!!! Obama does not
Again, on the body language thing, every time you see Obama tighten his lips, and his face becomes rigid, you know he is losing the argument.
Obama is clearly uncomfortable. He is not in control here, and he knows it.
Fannie and Freddie under the democrats?!
Who pressured the loan companies Obama?
The government FORCED them too!
yeah, I really wish Romney had pointed out it was politically enticed..
Me too, and I wish Mitt would have quit saying that he agreed on so much with dear leader. That drove me nuts.
Leher is running interference for Obama.
But he’s not effective.
Yeah, he came across as a sputtering fool.
I didn’t have any qualms with the moderator, seemed like the participants kind of ran the show ..
Romney owns this debate. He’s more energetic and proactive than Newt would have been.
Yes. There was too much political oversight over Wall St. Talk to Frank and Dodd!
I am sorry Mr. President, what you are talking about, was caused by Democrats.
What is all of this “we gave mnortgages to those who couldn’t afford them” business?
UM, DEMOCRATS are responsible for that! SAY IT OBAMNEY!
Mitt had a great response. Mortgages given to people who could not afford them lead to the financial crisis! Boom!!!!!
Is Lehar helping Obama with his little gestures?!
is the audience allowed to BOO during the Obamacare segment?
The mortgage debacle and the real estate bubble was created by Democrats. Get it right.
we just heard the defining moment of the campaign. Mitt wins.
What was that?
Obama has been on defense, since this whole comedy started.
I’m with Glenn part of me wants Mitt to just punch him in the face for being such a liar.
>21 year olds being referred to as “kids.” Ugh. No wonder they don’t leave the house.
Um, what’s the point of running a business if you don’t focus on profits Mr President?
They’re such FRIENDS!
Lol I was just thinking what happened to his accent.
Oh, you may mean his southern accent…
… southern Hawaii?
… southern Chicago, Illinois?
You havent seen the tapes that have been in the news yesterday and earlier today. Watch them. He was speaking at a mostly black church. You’ll hear.
That newest release of the old video was on my mind.
Mitt is kicking butt tonight my friends!
since I’m not watching (due to my distaste for Obama) its great to hear
Hey phc! I decided to watch because Mark Levin ed d we should watch and I am really happy that I did.
I know but its just my personal thing you know, Obama is so horrible that listening to him is like hearing a murder saying that he did it because of compassion. I just can not hear him its like torture.
I agree. But this is so good!
Lmao, I am at work right now, but I am recording it at home, I like to hear what my patriots (which I consider better experts than anyone on tv) are saying and so far it looks like Romney is cleaning the floor with Obama:)
Except the last 2 minutes! Obama is just rambling on!
When you do watch it, just put the usurper on “mute”.
Hey Proud…I rarely go there but I checked out FoxNation online and they are running clips of all the good points R made tonight. I agree how hard it is to watch BO. Maybe you can check out the highlights on that site without having to watch dear leader.
I NEVER listen to the idiot either but I forced myself tonight, it was worth it ..
Solid win for Romney, beat him hands down. Obama ..bla bla bla bla bla
You missed a good one.
Best tweet ever!!!
Dennis Miller Show [email protected]
Romney keeps this up Obama’s gonna vote for him.
Awesome. Dennis Miller on Twitter:
Is that like the hopey thingy?
OH brother, RomneyCare IS bankrupting his state!
Yeah, Romney should admit it was a huge mistake.
Good Lord the 0 is a smug a$$hole
Narcissists believe everyone loves them. How could they not?
Hitting with the facts Mitt! This is awesome:) My insurance has gone up 26 dollars a month because of Obamacare….I know that I am not the only American feeling this and hearing our President lie through his teeth.
My insurance went up $26,000/year because of ObamaCare just for me.
Obama is lying about the death panels and the complete lives system created by Ezkial Emanual!
WOW! I was mad about my 250 a year! I have a feeling a lot of people are watching Obama tonight and wanting to throw their boot through the T.V.
Seriously. And if you add the 40% federal excise tax on top, it is bank breaking. This kid will have no health ins if ObamaCare is not repealed, cannot afford it any longer. And it is not a business deduction because I am the owner.
I wish he would have said something about the IRS fines for those who don’t get obamanationcare.
Not looking at your opponent in a debate, is also a sign of arrogance. But knowing Obama, that is not really surprising.
The staring down at the podium and the smirking is getting on my nerves.
It is arrogance, combined with knowing that he is losing.
They should have body language expert present in these debates. Obama would flunk every test.
They have a lie detecting company that is going to give their results on lying 3 hours after the debate. http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/03/obama-and-romney-to-face-real-lie-detector-test-during-debate/#ixzz28GyvBu1H
Mitt will win. He looks at Obama, whose eyes shift and look away.
Thanks phc. Drive safely and enjoy this when you get home. You won’t be sorry, promise.
Best debate since Reagan era.
Thank you my friend.
Oh crap, I hope their machine was insured, because with dear leader opening his mouth surely must have fried the thing to death.
They were preparing us telling us that Romney was a better debater. Basically, Obama is just an idiot.
So healthcare costs have gone up but just slower? Did I hear that right?
Obama says, ‘let me make one last point”. He is already 4 minutes ahead of Romney. Blah, blah, blah.
Just rambling on!
YES!!! The government is NOT GOOD at bringing down COSTS!!! Way to go Mitt! It won’t work Barry!
Has anyone noticed that when Romney is speaking, our esteemed POTUS does not or will not look at Mitt…….. and of coarse not! Obama just stands at the podium looking down and smirking. “arrogant A-hole” I’m guessing he’s looking at notes” ” ” or someone is queuing him.
There’s no doubt in my mind, Obama is being scripted with a seating placer/debating coach and or an adviser, possibly all three.
regardless– Romney is doing great IMHO ,)
Quite a contrast from Netanyahu isn’t it?
Well give credit where credit is due * roll-eye’s* at least Obama showed-up for the debate tonight!!!
Benjamin Netanyahu would be uncomfortable in dealing with Obama at close range. He’s not used to dealing with idiots.
It was on the table, right in front of him. Some things are so transparent.
No matter. He still came across as a blithering Idiot.
But the law has never been an obstacle for you Mr Obama.
Romney is teaching Obama. Obama is an obstinate child.
BHObama is an ‘obstinate’ Saul Alinsky acolyte true believer who believed, and with whom Hillary Clinton and BHObama must have concurred with their public statements about Alinsky, that dedicating ‘Rules For Radicals’ to the fallen rebel angel Lucifer was good for book sales…
… and a societal benefit too.
Mitt failed to say that ObamaCare was passed in the dead of night, the debates and hearings were not televised on C-SPAN as promised and that O’Bambi pulled dying Teddy Kennedy out of bed to get his 60th vote. Plus Pelosi’s famous statement: “We have to pass it to find out what’s in it.”
Yeah, for Obama to claim any bipartisanship is a freaking joke…
Pelosi would not even let a Repub in the same room when they were hammering the Obamacare bill out..
Like O said, we won, you repubs can ride the bus but you have to sit in the back…
I want the SuperPac to put out an ad with pResident Ozone telling Repubs to sit in the back…that would be a slam-dunk if it played right after an ad on Katrina racism because of the Stafford Act requirement that his vote CAUSED!
Just got home from church. Tell me who doing better? Why are the camera angles on Obama face to face but they’re using side angles and back angles on Romney?
Romney is doing very well.
Obama is a SCFOAMF
If that means scumbag cool fubar of american motha f#@@^%Rs!
Obama loser loser loser IMHO!
not quite SCFOAMF google it. Awesome
Looked it up, pol. ROFLMAO!!
Romney is facing Obama, while Obama is trying to face the camera.
Trying to feed those empty heads.
If Obama care is so great why is Obama trying to scare people about Romney’s health care plan! Obama knows its a diaster!
Mitt needs to hit with this. If O’BambiCare is so great, why are you and members of Congress exempt? Why did your administration approve thousands of waivers for your campaign doners?
Excellent point O!
Obama is getting nervos, he just hit the mike for the 2nd time tonight.
I have no idea how Mitt is standing there and smiling and
looking so good for so long.
I could not last 20 minutes.
He has been sharp as a tack, he must have ate his Wheaties this morning.
He doesn’t buy General Mills because they are pro gaydome. Good for Mitt!
Wheaties! I think he had a beefy steak and the biggest Idaho potato on record!!
Every time they show Romney and he is smiling all I can think of is he is thinking “It’s like taking candy from a baby”.
Mitt is owning him in this debate
Mitt is agreeing with Obama too much. There will be an argument that Obama is getting things right just needs 4 more years to finish and Romney concurs. Shut up Mitt! Only talk about differences not what you might agree with.
He agrees then he slices and dices Obama!
Obama lies, lies, lies and the sad part is that the casual voter doesn’t know it and the MSM will not contradict him after the debate.
It is difficult to keep up with all the comments here this evening, because everything is moving too fast.
We’ll have time to go over all this tomorrow.
But the important thing, is that Obama is getting killed here this evening.
Did he say the first role of Government is to keep Americans safe?! Libya!
Romney should have come back with Onumbnuts saying last year that, “America can absorb another terrorist attack.”! ….and him saying on the open mic to the Russian president, “Wait until after the election, I’ll have more flexibility.”
That will come during the Foreign Policy debate in a couple of weeks.
Lehrer would have cut him off – better for him to wait til the next debate, optics wise.
The blood spewed from my eyes when he said that. Open borders, fast and furious, arab freaking spring, our Navy SEALS, Libya, Egypt, mussie brotherhood in the white house, freaking sensitivity training by CAIR in our FBI and CIA, Afghanistan, Iran…. oh crap I about had a coronary yelling at my radio.
Me too, AbC! Me too!
Wow, Obama said that the genius of America is free enterprise. And we believe he believes that.
Obama knows the verbage to mislead the sheep! He is NOT A PRINCIPLED man. He is a manipulator and a misleader and a charlatan!
…and wicked to the bone.
so, we killed NASA to show how much we support the future of science!
But… but that’s because muslims GAVE us science! Didn’t you know? I’m shocked stage9! Just shocked.
lol – and don’t forget the Renaissence…
Muslims built the Space Shuttle. Get your facts straight.
Government’s role is to secure the freedoms built on the rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
Romney is stealing my line! 🙂
you stole it from tommy jefferson
Ok. He can have partial credit. 😛
Great point. Endowed by our Creator.
Our rights come from a HIGHER source, not government.
Way to go Mitt!!!
Love the Constitution mention!
Yep, a little food for the TP’ers. (count me in)
Is there an American flag behind them? I haven’t seen one.
Thank God Mitt is addressing the audience and ignoring the smirking a$$hole now.
I haven’t seen Obama score a single point so far in this debate. How about the rest of you?
If he says the 100,000 more teachers and race to the top one more time, im going to scream!!!
Romney should have pointed out how the dems shut down the DC voucher program.
I about threw up though when mitt said he agreed with arne duncan. Damn, why did he say that?!
I was surprised about that too.
Obama is such a wind bag!
O-BLAME-O is nervous and studdering some.
I think most people can tell he FORCING some info on Romney
(especially the 5 trillion line made him look bad) instead of debating and rebuffing.
He is about a 5 in debating, even if his facts were good.
Romney is on a 8-9 rating out of 10.
HE is toasting PREZI up pretty well !
Did you hear the line early where he said the Bit-me line or word?
Let’s see- Obama interrupts Romney and nothing is said. Romney interrupts Obummer and a big deal is made of it and the audience laughs.
In other words the government becomes the loan officer!
said it before. Mitt is Muhammad Ali. Floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee.
I had to take a call that took me away for about 25 minutes, BUT my honest take is that Showbama appears to always be exceeding the time limits. No?
What a windbag, and noooo substance.
Yeah, but he’s exceeding the speed limit on how fast you can lose a debate.
I never realized it before, but his ears are really big, aren’t they?
They grow with each lie….
Heaven forbid kids go to schools they can afford… geez, borrow money from the government on an education you’ll spend the rest of your life paying off.
Then they can’t find a job after the college.
…and all they’ll learn is leftist gibberish.
Booo… promising not to cut education. Fed in education could use a good cut.
They could can the dept of education but give the schools the cash instead.. screw the worthless bureaucrats..
it needs to be abolished!
ooooohhh that was a swipe!
Obama keeps running over time in his comments, and the Moderator lets him get away with it. This was planned in advance.
Work across the aisle… nooooo!
whether you like it or not you have to find some common ground-this isn’t Iran!
I’m not voting for John McCain. Ted Cruz was asked similar statement in debate last night and had better answer. He quoted Reagan about being more than happy to work with compromise if that compromise is the democrats offering half a loaf. GOP has given half a loaf over and over. Enough!
common ground to democrats = capitulation
This was Obama’s brain NOT on drugs. Next time he’ll get loaded on the plane before the debate.
When the camera swung around to show Frank Luntz’ entire focus group on the Hannity show, Mrs. WFM suddenly sat straight up and said, “So where are the black people? And look, there no Hispanics!”
“Yes, Sweet Vision,” I replied, “Tonight Luntz is only polling undecided voters.”
lol “sweet vision” You’re so sweet Words. Mrs. Words is a lucky lady! 😀
no, that meant you had to become a democrat (or RINO)
Romney associated BHObama with 90 BILLION dollars for so-called green jobs vs. paychecks for 2 million teachers!!!
Excellent statistic and VERY easy to remember.
I have goosebumps…GO Mitt!!
Wow, Obama is a petty little man.
Well, Romney’s not going to be golfing as much.
Maybe less golf…
Does less golf mean more daily national security meetings for Romney?
Yes, ‘we the people’ and the small business builders can bank on it.
Holy smackdown. Obama just went from being the first black and white President to the first black-and-blue President! Yowch.
Ha ha ha hahah
What is black and white and read all over?
Who is Black and White and blue after a debate?
BHObama without a teleprompter and a lap-dog ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN media.
Excellent – that’s nget repeated – a lot!!
Obama said Romney is going to have a hard time repealing Obamacare with Dems. In 2010, Dems were campaigning against Obamacare. Remember the Dem who took a shotgun to the legislation?
Romney is doing well. I take issue with a couple of his statements, but overall Romney came out on top in this discussion. In spite of the moderator.
Jimmy Carter was better than Boo-Boo !!!
And Obama is the most extreme of his party! Ugh!
YOU have the audacity to talk about EXTREME Mr President?
Did he just take a swipe at the Tea Party?
Yes. Extreme is code for Tea Party.
looking down. blink rate fast.
…and Obama IS the extreme wing of his party.
He likes saying, “Obamacare.” Count the times in this debate, that he has said that.
Impossible to watch Obama give an answer without my mind wandering. And I am trying.
Romney is passionate and trying to milk every chance he can to explain his positions and point out Obama’s.
IMO, Mitt completely destroyed him tonight.
Romney smiles. Looks at the camera. Looks compassionate.
Obama’s been fighting for America from the bunker. The Fairway bunker!
You ain’t fightin for me sucka!
What happened to him having more “flexibility” in a second term???
Yeah, Romney needed to talk about that.
Maybe, Romney will bring it up during the foreign policy debates!
They are not the best cars in the world. General Motors does not produce a single car, that I would buy.
I only watched half of the debate and thought Romney brought his A+ game to the debate. Good Job, he looked way more presidential than Obama… Obama scrambling looking at the podium and forcing a stupid smile when he seemed very uncomfortable.
Romney Wins. BOY, does he win.
Romney win… easy call.
Go to bed with this idea. He is a Communist. He will say anything to get re-elected. Listen to Mitt.
Amen and goodnight!
Romney kicks Bo’s A@@, IMHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mark Sanford? REALLY?
That has to be Mitt’s best debate…EVER…
Something was not right with PREZI, maybe the strident tapes floating around?
I DVR’d and will watch in full later. I tuned in just in time to hear o’s closing statement w a bewildered look on his face. God forgive me-I enjoyed that.
Muslim, or Mormon. It’s your choice.
I’ve never met a Mormon I didn’t like….muslim…not so much.
Everybody here agrees Romney won the debate tonight. Tomorrow, the media will say “Game Over, Obama wins”. Just watch.
NO, they’ll say it was a toss up. Wait, you’ll see. They can’t admit Obama lost. Wow! I was so impressed with Romney. He understands money.
Thank you for this livestream. Very good. I, as some of you, am an Independent voter, former Hillary supporter and Ron Paul supporter, and uncertain whether I would vote for Romney or Gary Johnson. Well, I can tell you, Romney won this debate hands down. Obviously, Romney knows more about the economy than Obama.
Welcome and hope you decide to support Romney..
Barry getting texts on what to say on blackberry? Looks down more than anywhere else…
Say what Mitt…You like Arne “the radical” Duncan’s ideas on eduction? Hope it’s not the connections Arne has to Vallerie Jarrett, Bill Ayers and other marxists.
Mitt, call the healthcare board that will ration care what they are, death panels…stop tip
Scoop, you did a fantastic job for us tonight, as always!
Omg! The whining on MSNBC if the best I’ve felt in 4 years. I think I’m having a thrill up my leg.
I’d like to change the channel to see that, but I just can’t bring myself to push the buttons. 🙂
It is worth watching but it still gets painful after a while.
I loved every minute of it.
The gist at NBC right now is that Obama wasn’t “crisp” and Romney had his act together.
BO got his clocked cleaned but good!
Bravo…..Mitt…..You were clear, concise and displayed true Leadership……How happy I am……(: (: (: (:
ABreitbart would have been pleased!
sure wish he was still here, of course he’s assisting from above and boy do we think about him alot…
Even the Liberals are saying that Obama was pathetic, and Romney was totally in control. I have never seen Obama look so weak.
I believe we have a new President.
It ain’t over till it’s over…
A man can dream.:)
I thought Romney won this one. He knows economics.
pretty funny watching the community organizer try to school the businessman on economics and government. HAHAHA
Oh my I switched the station to MSNBC and Chris Matthews is having a cow that Obama let Romney get away with so much garbage coming out of Romney. He just said on this station we have our knives out and go after the people-wow-where was Obama? WOW!
Lmao, why do you torture yourself? 🙂
The msm are all so surprised at Mitts performance. It’s almost as if they actually believed their reporting for the last 8 months. Idiots
And THAT is very likely the truth…
Romney looked and acted presidential……..Obama….not so much…
ABSOLUTELY! That is exactly what I thought. VERY Presidential!
It is actually worth watching MSNBC melting down right now. Matthews looks like he just lost a fight.
Such a fair and balanced approach from the gang on MSNBC!!!
Browser problems…I think Romnney won this one.
Tingles is losing his freakin mind! I like it a lot.
That thrill up your leg is urine flowing down. You’ve pissed yourself, Chris!
Crissy don’t listen to drphibes, it is just a warm spring rain. enjoy the euphoria!
I thought the “Chris” you were referring to as Tingles was CHris Matthews (thrill up my leg).
Well ya, crissy is such a sissy.
OOOOOUUUUU, MSLSD going ballistic, it is too funny !!!
Was Obunmmer afraid to engage?
And act like the idiot he really is?
Oh did not say anything about his 47%, and all the other stuff MSDNC want him to SPEW on.
Chris MAtthews said we should have brought a knife tonight???
PISSY, PISSY, what up?
I agree Romney won the debate. It was pretty obvious to me the depth of Romney’s experience and depth of his knowledge of how the economy works. I liked the fact that they were able to debate each other and Romney would not let himself be run over by the moderator. And Romney obviously knows his role is to defend the Constitution and spoke about our 2 founding documents and mentioned our Creator. Romney/Ryan 2012!
The economy will win this election. You can put that in concrete.
Romney destroyed Obama and did it with a smile. Good grief.
Romney wiped the floor with obama. Fantastic!
CNN and MSNBC is having a frigging meltdown because Obummer got his a*ss handed to him tonight.
Sergeant Schultz is not happy with Barry’s performance. Ha, Ha, ha!
O’Donnell, on MSNBC, is saying that we cannot determine who won the debate tonight. We will have to wait 3 or 4 days to listen to the polls. Yeah, right. Nobody believes your polls anymore.
Chuck Todd said “Big night for Romney, it’s back to the drawing board for Obama.
Nuke! We have been missing you. So glad to see you and your posts!
Nice to be back. I appreciate everyone’s concern for me. I took a week off, took a trip, and spent the time polling non-political people . My summation is over at the Biden thread yesterday, probably on page two by now.
I am glad you got away for a bit. Now I am about to sound like a mom here…but let a few of us know next time Mister!! lol…We love you and we were missing your insightful posts around here. I missed the Biden thread so I will head over there soon.
Sorry, Mom (even though you are lightyears younger than me, lol). I’ll remember next time. I didn’t even think about that until I got back. My bad.
BTW, I edited my post above to add the thread. It pretty much sums up what I found to be the truth out in the land of ordinary, non-political, decent people out there (all the polls aside).
I was re-invigorated, to say the least.
I can’t believe how crisp Romney was…I knew he was knowledgeable, but I’m stunned.
Romney is no flake, he IS a highly successful business man. He is known as a very driven, passionate business man..
Little obie has never run a lemon aid stand, well he probably sold a little weed back in college…
Best DENNIS MILLER Tweets during Debate:
“I hope the President gets his @ss handed to him more quickly than somebody who just got outpatient liposuction.”
“Jim…nobody gives a sh#t about your f#cking segments! Let them wail on each other…we’ll sweep up after!”
“Remember when Obama said keep your tires inflated? NOTE TO OBAMA CAMP, KEEP OBAMA INFLATED!”
“Obama keeps looking down at his belt buckle teleprompter.”
“Obama is being owned, refinanced and owned again!”
“The night janitor at Big Ben doesn’t clean a clock as well as Romney does.”
“Romney brings up Romneycare. Sweet! Perry Mason like genius!”
“Obama is taking on water in all front four compartments. He’s listing…Bruce Ismay is dressing up as a woman.”
“Massive body shot by Romney on this green bullsh#t!”
“Obama better hope a Kicked @ss is covered under Obamacare.”
“Game, Set, Matchless…ROMNEY!”
I would like to hear Romney carry 0bamataxcare out 10 years and point out that 0bamacare will kill jobs, and when additional jobs are lost less government revenue is generated. As revenue decreases government programs will by necessity be eliminated or funding will be spread thinner and thinner across the board. In the end if0bamacare isn’t repealed it will be the DEATH of Itself along with many more government programs until it destroys the ability for the government to sustain itself.
Romney covered it.
Folks, this is the best debate we’ve seen since the Reagan/Carter, Reagan/Mondale ones, if you’re old enough to remember. I was just a kid, but I remember.
Oh I remember. Reagan/Mondale was my first election I got to vote in. I was in highschool when Reagan/Carter debates took place (I was in Jr. High when Carter won and I sat at our kitchen table and balled like a baby and asked Mom, “What are we going to do?”). I still remember coming to school the next day after the first debate and standing out front waiting for the bell to ring and a number of us were talking about Reagan kicking Carter’s a$$. Makes me smile even now.
I’m still a kid.
Don’t state the obvious. Your enemies will take it as a sign of weakness.
It’s all a ploy.
Biden and Ryan up……. priceless. Turn off Fox and watch CNN and MSNBC, total melt down.
Maybe they will melt away!
even the msm is saying obummer sucked tonight…………….. but they do have excuses. go figure
the msm, baghdad bob will all lie and spin… fact is, romney has good ideas, he knows what he is talking about, thin skinned barry looked like the narcissist he is. he is no leader and has shown he is no leader. move over barry we have a new leader coming nov 6th 2012 . mitt won hands down
TO BE A DEBATE, obama MUST USE THE TELEPROMPTER. lolololo
If Joe Blow was watching this knowing nothing about the USA. He would not even be able to tell who has been in charge the last 4 years!! Bammy might have gotten away with this with the public 4 years ago running against an empty office but now we all know he acts like been in a locked room for last 4 years and now running for the empty chair!! Victory starts today!!
Now the spin will begin. Obama just got killed. Now, Van Jones and all the other Democratic lapdogs, are going to try an tell us why Obama lost the debate. It’s deajavue all over again.
Dropped in after it was over, for a few seconds at CNN – that Cutter creature was there complaining that Mitt interrupted the moderator. Damn right Mitt didn’t get shut out of responding to all the lies – well done and good for him.
Said zero presented his detailed plan and they’re pleased with his performance. Right, witch.
That’s as much as I could manage to watch…
Love the ‘Cutter Creature”…you kill me p m!
Just trying to keep it civil, nibbles. Despite the provocation!
Did you watch/enjoy it? I reckon most of us were nervous MR wouldn’t take a few swings. Well, he sure did. It was thrilling muting zero, checking Dennis Miller’s tweets, then going back to Romney lambasting the liar. Most enjoyable, a keeper!
I did watch it…so happy and proud of Mitt! My first reaction was to Praise the Lord!
I did pray a couple times today that God would guide him w his words. He did.
Where two or more are gathered right?
Me too, couldn’t sleep last night
Me too! And then I sent in a donation! Hallelujah!
Does anybody know if at fox, Charles Krauthammer gave his opinion on the debate?
Yes he said Romney scored the equivalent of two touch downs! Thats awesome!
You know hpc, we should really should thank Mitt Romney for standing up for the American people and for taking the time to run for President. We really need him now!
Yes we should be thankful that a guy that really has it all would take his time to fight for this country and god knows we need it. I thank him he is the barrier standing infront of Obama and we have to carry him over the finish line. I dont know about you but I am more focused then I was just hours ago.
Hey I am right there with you!
Nope..he WON by 2 touchdowns…
Yes. He gave Romney 2 thumbs up and said Obama look sluggish. He said Romney looked more Presidential.
Thank you my friend for nuking me with good news. Seriously I respect his opinion.
Actually, Krauthammer said Romney won by 2 touchdowns…
Do you have a link to see/hear Charles?
Pat Buchanan said Romney probably won 13 out of 15 rounds it it was the best he’d ever seen Romney do.
Dang! I go to take a bathroom break right after it finishes, come back and there’s a million comments already.
Mitt did well, he had some good jabs there, but he sure needs to go for the jugular. Most of the blood I saw tonight was my own from my bleeding eyes every time dear leader opened his mouth. And Dang, what a freaking love fest between jimmy and dear leader. Gag.
Obama looked like a weak sister, didnt he?
Obama was on defensive mode most of the time during the debate as he can’t defend his abysmal record, and his attack on Romney was very weak at best and the punches not landed as hard and the ones that Romney landed on him (though not a knockout punch). I was surprise of the civility in the first debate as lack of gunpowder smoke. But wait for the VP debate when the stenchPaul Ryan is going for the KO on Joe Bidenator.
Thats going to be a good night.
The moderator would have to stop the fight before Paul the Ryanotor slice gaffe the Bidenator to bits and left him bleeding from every pores. Wonder who is going to be the UFC referee from what network?
Boris, you just became my number one financial adviser. 🙂
I wish I was half as smart as I think I am..
Ans. D; All of the above.
I can’t imagine Mr Romney’s frustration when President Obama stated that Mr. Romney has a $5 trillion dollar tax cut in his plan–not once, not twice, but three times. I was glad to hear Mr. Romney dispute it all three times. The President thinks that if you say something over and over, it will come true. It was like listening to a toddler asking his Mom for a toy after she has repeatedly told him ‘No’.
Obama and the 3 year old share the same mentality…
yeah that was good. Romney even used his own kids as an example. haha
That was good wasn’t it!
He does look like he can’t wait to get his .02 in doesn’t he…
I think he likes it…
There have been no comments here this evening, by our Military. What they think about the debates.
These are the people who defend this country against our enemies. The people who keep us safe.
Politicians are like the termites in the foundation of your home. Unless you watch them closely, they will destroy your home.
We can’t even exist, as a country, without the protection and the force against our enemies, that our Military represents.
What the Military among us thinks, is what we should pay attention to.
Everything else, is bullshit.
I certainly appreciate the service of military members. But that does not mean what everyone else thinks is BS. We all have contributions to make.
You are absolutely right. I stand corrected. 🙂
Was that $200 million in negative Mitt ads OBOZO just flushed away in 90 minutes?
90 minutes to go with the $90 billion green!
90 billion for bankrupt greens = 2 million teachers
‘trickle-down government’ = love it.
Romney won the debate…
I think OBUMMEER just hit a HUGE bumpity-bump in the road !!!
LMAO! I was just over at Twitchy . com and even the Left is saying Romney won this! I guess, it is a real eye opener when you realize your emperor has no clothes!
Ok, you people in the midwest (and SOUTH) , you can have ONE breath now, until the next debate.
I sure bet Beer sales are up tonight, and to think Mitt does not even drink.
Talk about miracles.
Why a miracle? Look at what Mitt has done and look at what Duh Bumbler has done.
Both candidates were well prepared, spoke well, and were well behaved. There were no cheap shots. Though I gagged when Obama addressed his wife at the beginning and called her sweety. (I almost turned off the TV at that moment, but the call of duty prevailed.) It is stunning how much older-looking Obama has become in just four years. His face seemed shrunken and wizened. But at the same time he looked strong and confident. Romney’s maddening habit of smiling continuously while Obama was speaking made him look weak. So I turned from C-SPAN, which had split screen view showing both candidates the whole time, to PBC, which showed only the candidate who was speaking.
On the economy, I think that voters who are concerned about the economy will get the definite impression that Romney will get the economy moving again, and the even stronger impression that Obama will not, and that these perception will certainly help Romney.
On Obamacare, Romney’s standard critique of it—it will hurt the economy, it involves too many regulations—and his continuing failure to attack it as a tyrannical expansion of government and bureaucratic power (as seen, e.g., in the birth control mandate), suggests that he will have no real zeal to repeal it. If he had such zeal, wouldn’t he have attacked it as the revolutionary, anti-American measure that it is, and not just for its inefficiency?
I didnt think Obama looked strong and confident at all during the debate. I thought he looked deflated and weak. Shrunken into his suit. He made little or no eye contact which to me seemed like a tell that he didn’t want to be there, and wasnt interested or prepared.
Romney smiling was much better than the smirk that the President had for part of the time, and the sour look the other part of the time.
In all honesty, Romneys answer in re to Obamacare was stronger than I hoped. I was happily surprised.
Romney was even strong on Romneycare. WOW!!
The non-verbal body language of Obama gave away much than his verbal presentation. He stood with a negative posture of slouching forward, his leg crossed behind him, avoiding direct eye contact with Mitt Romney and the moderator and his voice sounded dejected as opposed to his deep and well modulated oratory tone of voice. He seemed just to endure himself through the debate and at times he seemed to lost his train of thought, as opposed to Mitt Romney, who was in full command of the debate, in substance and timing.
I seriously wanted to slap that soured look off his face.
He definitely had lost his luster and mojo without the teleprompter and his canned script.
Don’t want to go negative on myself, but I was talking about the BEER.
BUT, now that you mention it, the results tonight were not what MOST people thought was possible…..even though a lot of US on this site PRAYED for it a LOT !!!!
I knew Mitt could beat him and is a GOOD man, but to have OH-uh-oh
have such a poor night surprised me.
I think he wanted to look PRESIDENTIAL, and not like the man on those tapes just released.
Instead, he looked like little boy who just got caught lying….no racism meant there, but lefties go ahead and SPEW.
What we saw tonight was Obama on his own, without his keepers, handlers, MSM protectors, and teleprompter, and without the ability to control the questions being asked. Tonight he introduced his real self to the entire country.
Stupid DVR. Missed the closing statements.
We took a break for dinner. Mmmmmmm.
Up till the last fifteen minutes, I had Romney up by just a bit. The SCOAMF didn’t have to sweat. Romney was killing on rational points and math. SCOAMF killed on claiming BS was fact.
Just go with the lies, Mr. President. Don’t worry about the media calling you out on any of them. You say “5 Billion,” hey, that’s good enough for us!
What a night! I thought we would win this thing, but we seemed to have steamrolled Obama.
Over the next few days, the Democrats will try to spin this every way from Sunday, but they will fail, in their efforts. Without his teleprompter, this is a weak President.
He just proved it this evening, to all the American people, who were watching. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
It is like in Little League, they should have had a 10 run rule in place.
Mitt was ahead 10-1 in the first 30 minutes.
BO phoned it in, plain and simple!
Is it possible that Obama never really had a competent debater? John McCain was not competent on taxes or the economy and neither was Hilary Clinton competent on taxes and the economy. So its possible that he really has not have to defend his marxist ideology.
Other than the insta-poll, we know who is the clear decisive winner champ is in this debate, when Bill Maher and MSNBC hardball were fuming non-stop on their chump.
Just found this open mic video…..what makes O think he’s expecting to win and what exactly is he talking about more flexability? Any ideas?
Scoop, keep this thread open until after the election. Things were moving too fast this evening to comment, but over the next couple of weeks, this will become one of the biggest threads ever.
Although Romney schooled Obama on every single point, Obama didn’t hurt himself by appearing to have been schooled. Obama’s gift is the ability to always look like he knows what he’s talking about, even when he has no clue about the words coming out of his own mouth.
Obama reminds me of a third grader who totally trusts the words adults tell him to say, and so he says them with total conviction, even though he has no ability at all to determine what the words mean.
There is no depth to the man. That is the quality he lacks, as a human being. Everything about him is superficial. He is always acting. Always playing to the audience in front of him.
His understanding of the world around him, is wrapped up in himself, and his view of his own existence. He is the most narcissistic person I have ever encountered. His love of himself, is so overwhelming, that he cannot understand anyone not agreeing with him.
The vision he has of himself, borders on a mental disorder. He really should be in an institution, under heavy medication.
Having said that, I don’t feel like wasting more money on him. Just turn him loose in any homeless camp in America. Let them deal with him.
A year ago, I would have called that a way-over-the-top analysis. Now, it’s almost an understatement.
We live in Bizarro World, for sure.
We’re feeling good tonight. But, still, Obama gave me a phone. Keep Obama in President.
Vote for Romney. I’ll buy you a new Iphone.
It is hilarious to see some on the left trying to spin this. The meltdown on MSNBC is epic!
Good job Gov! Keep this up and you will draw more and more conservatives and independents your way.
Obama’s lack of preparation showed the greatest amount of disrespect for Americans and even for the unworthy Democrat I’ve ever seen. Obama is the poster boy for the effectiveness of advancing unqualified candidates over qualified ones has produced for this nation.
I believe that neither Jesse Jackson nor Al Sharpton could have done more to embarrass themselves, their nation and their people than the lazy, arrogant Indo-waiian..
(Well maybe Sharpton on a bad day…)
See I knew Romney was going to give us what we’ve been asking for in these debates.
I love how MSM tried to hype Romney so he fails tonight backfired and in a big way.
The next debate that could save Obama? Is Biden’s against Ryan LMAO!
Tonight was a great night.
Wah Hoo!!!! Romney drop kicked him without breaking a sweat.
Let’s just put in a ‘change of address’ card.
Democrats, this is how conservatives felt when McCain didn’t debate in the 2008 debates with Obama. It’s not that your candidate was better; it’s that our candidate didn’t want to win. Obama has a case of McCain-nodebate-itis.
Obama predicted in 1958???
Any left coasters who are still up might enjoy this little video from Neil Cavuto. Slightly off topic, please forgive, but it’s about his debate coverage prep and is a real hoot. Love that man – he’s so good at taking the mickey out of himself. Enjoy.
I kinda felt sorry for Obama – naw, not really! Romney KICK BUTT!
My ears bleed hearing Obama’s voice…
This debate was like watching Tito Ortiz in a UFC match against Steve Urkel. Or like watching the early ’90s Cowboys playing a pee-wee football team. Obama was just so far in over his head it was pathetic…. IT WAS GLORIOUS!!!
This is what we’ve all been waiting on for four years. What’s awesome is the press has done Obama no favors. He’s only had to deal with softball questions up to now and facing serious questions and an opponent who wouldn’t let him get away with anything, he shattered like a champagne glass thrown off the Sears Tower. His arguments and talking points came tumbling down like a house of cards in an earthquake. EFFING AWESOME!
Also, I can’t wait to hear talk radio break this down. I work graveyards but I may just have to stay up late to listen to all of El Rushbo’s show. It should be epic.
I think emperor 0bama has to pick the best of bad options in future debates, and both mean utter defeat for him.
If he continues to “keep cool” it will be another embarrassment like tonight. This debate has shown that the emperor CANNOT defend ANYTHING that happened under his four-year reign nor effectively counter Romney once confronted with facts that he ignored for so long. It’s also telling that he kept looking at moderator Jim Lehrer as if expecting Lehrer to save him somehow.
However, if he attempts to get aggressive in the future, the emperor’s thin-skinned demeanor and insufferable narcissism may get the better of him, especially since Romney has been shown to be so knowledgeable about his policies and calls him out in turn. It is then the beloved emperor 0bama will erupt in a satisfying moment of uncontrollable rage on live TV.
Heck, if Dear Leader is REALLY ANGRY, he might even spew a profanity or two without thinking.
I just watched this debate for the second time uninterrupted and this time I saw what I had missed first time around. Romney was commanding and had made the case over and over that Barack Hussein Obama is destroying the country from within. Also as expected I saw and heard Barack Hussein Obama spew pure B.S. from his mouth for the entire debate and saw that he did not even believe the B.S. he was spewing… Barack Hussein Obama had to work extra hard to pretend he cares deeply for this Republic and all it’s citizens… The look of disgust on Barack Hussein Obama face as the Constitution and Declaration of Independence was spoke of was the same disgusted face I had seen in Illinois when I asked him questions regarding the U.S. Constitution and State Constitution… I thought he might just say at one point during this debate regarding the Constitution “Are You Serious?”. I am not sure how but some way the liberal media will give him a 9 or 10 point lead nationally and around the same in the swing States… So overall I was pleasantly surprised that he was not weak in this debate as I was fearing he might be..
BO’s ideology really gets in the way of his ability to think rationally. I really got lost as he stuttered through his assessment of lowering the debt.
I agree. Obama meandered along and didn’t have a cohesive statement anywhere within the debate. His answer to what he believes government’s role is was beyond pathetic. Romney’s was beautiful for the most part. He started off talking about the Constitution and the actual role of what government should be, unlike Obama who never mentioned government or it’s role but rather went on a “I try to..” bullcrap rant. He didn’t have a clue what he was talking about, and instead of the role of government it was “I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I….”.
Romney needs to remember that when Obama mentions how swell things were under Clinton with higher tax rates the % of government spending to GDP was lower–I believe 18%–it is now 25%.
I could have done a better job than Romney did. Yeah, he did good, but there was sooo much stuff that he should have refuted. When he did fight back against Obama’s points, but most of it was mild refutation, and didn’t really go into the deeper philosophical issues.
Lol, you can say that but armchair quarterbacking is always easier than the actual performace (no offense). You essentially say Romney did a poor job. Funny, no one on t.v. (other the Juan Williams) agrees with you. Romney cleaned his clock. Bill Maher, Michael Moore and Chris Matthews all thought their hero got his a$$ kicked.
Come on, give Romney some credit. He was aggressive, confident, and even appeared to be lecturing to Obama all night…and Obama acted like he was getting in trouble by his daddy for wrecking his car.
Obama looked like a Choom smoking Marxist student up against a tenured professor…
Obama is an empty suit, an empty chair and a one-trick pony. He rammed Obamacare through and now he’s done.
Romney cleaned Obama’s clock.
My favorite part was when Romney said (paraphrased) “I”ve been in business for 25 years and I don’t have a clue what you’re talking about”.
Obama was called out and thrown on his back for making something up out of thin air. You don’t make up a lie about something involving business when you’re talking to the king of business.
It really ticked me off when Obama said it’s going to make a lot of Democrats mad when Romney tries to repeal Obamacare. Hey, buddy, I don’t care. You locked Republicans out of the process and told them to sit on the back of the bus.
Romney had a great comeback when he said (paraphrased) “If I were to walk in and say it’s my way or the highway I wouldn’t get anything done”. It placed the responsibility for the gridlock squarely on Obama’s shoulders and flat out called Obama a poor leader. Very well done.
Romney was Superb……And the hangover I have from sipping vino on a work night was well worth it!!!!!!
Great debate: Romney and the empty chair.
without a teleprompter and his regular “Hurray!” audiences, suddenly FuBar Ack sounds like a 7 yr old blabbing oaf…………
showing who he really is.
Even Huffington Post reporting, “ROMNEY WINS THE NIGHT”.
I hope in the next debate when BO talks about our economy as the greatest system man has developed that Mitt will ask him, “Then why do we need to fundamentally transform America?” Stop letting this man talk out of both sides of his mouth without confronting him!!
Romney shined at the debate, and showed what a powerful leader he will be. He even spoke over the moderator Jim Lehrer who lost control, just so Romney could get his points heard.
Thanks for posting this Scoop. I had a meeting last night and missed most of it… am listening now and appreciate it very much!
None of them are accustomed to this. Not the Imbecile, and not his people. They’ve enjoyed four years of fawning and drooling by an adoring media/Hollywood/activist population, and come the day somebody pushes back, no one knows what to do.
Without a carefully selected, loud and insanely partisan cheering section, he’s exposed. Without a teleprompter to speak for him, he’s exposed. With no subject matter knowledge or experience from which to make a cogent argument, he’s exposed for what we always knew him to be; a boorish, arrogant amateur – a befuddled half-wit who was way more interested in becoming president than actually being one.
He’s not used to being spoken-to like that – it was plain and clear in his expressions of outrage. No one to save him, and it must’ve felt dreadful to stand there and watch the house of cards he’s built begin its inevitable collapse. I haven’t started a day this happy and encouraged in a very long time. Maybe, just maybe, there’s hope for this country after all. We’ll see, but with luck, the independents will pull their heads out and get it right this time.
