Available to watch on any news channel. 9 p.m. Eastern time.
Yes it's early but NCIS is a rerun.
Listening to Cspan on the internet.
Sounds like the dems talking point is 1) We don’t need a businessman to run the country like a company, we need a politician.
And the other is 2) This is Rich versus Poor people.
Oh, and the fourth call in 3) Obama needs more time to undo what Bush did.
re: the focus group
If the Fräulein on the end thinks we’re spoiled, perhaps she should set an example and cut back on the bon-bons. Her car would burn less fuel and create less pollution if she dropped some of the baby fat.
I am flipping between the Dem channel and the R channel and the Dem channel keeps losing their communication feed to the debate site interviews. Although war hero John Kerry just called Romney ‘inexperienced’. How's those Purple Heart mosquito bites John?
Then they lost Stephanie Cutter when she started her spin points, LOL
Palin on the R channel Hannity. The bright lights are reflecting off her lips. Its blinding Sarah :)
WaPo has it big for Obama bin Laden
Star Tribune big for Romney
The other two are closer
CNN barely went to their focus group...soledad obrien handled it...she’s a POS; kept refering to obama as “president obama” then called Romney “Mr Romney, rather than governor...i switched the channels..
Everyone should think a bit before making rash statements like that when considering the intensity of this election as number one. Secondly, all of this is squished into 90 minutes. Election night will be just that, election night and not just 90 minutes. The focus will travel between each of the states reporting over a minimum of a five hour period.
Did anyone notice Obamas face after the debate while he was hugging Michelle? It was shocking. He was very solemn, he closed his eyes and looked almost like he was crying. It struck me that it was the kind of embrace one gives to someone at a funeral.
“Do You Know I’m A War Hero” Kerry was terrified by Romney tonight. He thinks Romney would start WWIII 5 minutes after taking office. And, of course, Tingles Matthews is whacking off over obama’s performance.
“. Obama is terrible on substance, of course. In terms of style, during this debate he’s reverted back to his non-standard jive manner of speaking, to wit:
going to: gonna
ought to: oughtta
could have: culdda
want to: wanna
Furthermore, his delivery is peppered with “ya know” and a torrent of “ahh”. In contrast, Mitt Romey’s measured manner of speaking conforms to American English, showing a command of the language and reveals his confidence on the substance.”
I noticed that. In addition, he said “gonna ta” whereas Romney said “going to.” It really bothered me; I know it may be petty, but on the world stage, people will notice that lazy way of speaking.
I filled out my absentee CO ballot today and sending it in by registered mail tomorrow. It may not mean much since I’m registered in Denver County, but who knows.
When I had to fill it out, it was a close call between Mitt and Roseanne Barr. ;) LOL!
Yep, you are missing some crucial context - like the whole second half of the debate. Mitt got stronger and stronger throughout the debate, and accomplished all of his primary goals tonight.
He wasn't trying to reach those he reached in the first debate. They're already on board, and aren't going anywhere. Likewise for solid conservatives and Tea-publicans. Mitt's job tonight was to reach those last remaining undecideds and middle-of-the-roaders. He did that by appearing presidential, and by demonstrating a command of foreign and domestic policy issues - particularly, the US economic situation.
Appearances were everything tonight. The people Mitt was targeting aren't the types who even pay attention to politics most of the time. They just needed to see a competent and confident challenger to the man in the White House who has failed them so badly.
I switched over to Firefox with much better results.
And at least during one of those times he included building bridges and roads in with the nation building. What the hell? I thought the f-in' stimulus package(s) were supposed to take care of all that. And of course, the only jobs created with fixing roads, etc., were union jobs.
Could R have said:
Vanity, thy name is Vanman.
When I saw Obama's grin it reminded me of a character from The Simpson's but I cant remember which one.
