I still think there should only be one rule:

If a candidate actually answers a question instead of spouting off barely-related talking points, empty a bottle of booze.

I figure this is worth posting one more time, so here is part of tomorrow's transcript from the debate:

Jim Lehrer: You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down...
Mitt Romney: What desert?
Lehrer: It doesn't make any difference what desert, it's completely hypothetical. You look down and see a tortoise, Mitt. It's crawling toward you...
Romney: Tortoise? What's that?
Lehrer: [irritated by Mitt's interruptions] You know what a turtle is? Same thing.
Romney: I've never seen a turtle... But I understand what you mean.
Lehrer: You reach down and you flip the tortoise over on its back, Mitt.
Romney: Do you make up these questions, Mr. Lehrer? Or do they write 'em down for you?
Lehrer: The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.
Romney: [angry at the suggestion] What do you mean, I'm not helping?
Lehrer: I mean: you're not helping! Why is that, Mitt?
[Mitt has become visibly shaken]
Lehrer: They're just questions, Mitt. In answer to your query, they're written down for me. It's a debate, designed to judge your competency for the presidency... Shall we continue?

Every time Obama says the words "my predecessor" drink a can of Bush Light until, like his predecessor, you too start sounding like English is not your first language.

Every time Romney mentions Ronald Reagan...drink a shot...of something as stiff and cold as the late president himself.

Every time Obama mentions Hillary Clinton...drink a shot of something as stiff and cold...as the Secretary of State Herself.

Every time Romney mentions those who are "dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them" drink something that is 47% alcohol ...then hope that Obamacare covers the cost of your stomach pumping.

Every time Obama mentions Michelle, drink something organic and healthy that will surely leave as bad a taste in your mouth as the last 4 years.

Every time Romney decries American's who avoid paying taxes... down so many fruity rum drinks you feel like you're in the Caymen Islands with his money.

Every time Obama uses the phrase "Let me be clear" drink a shot of something cloudy like Kaluha, Bailey's or a Lindsey Lohan urine sample.

Every Romney uses the words "job killing"...drink until you, yourself have done a good job killing enough brain cells to make this massive fuster cluck seem more funny than sad.

If you are an Obama lover, which most here are, then read this. If you still are after you read it, then I have no son/daughter...

Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to do. Few were listening.
The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised "Meet The Press'.
From Sunday's 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
General Bill Gann' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171...
During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It".
NOW GET THIS !!
'Senator Obama replied:
"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides". "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."
(ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)
Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love.It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails - - - perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ......."

Silverstaff: Empty Matchbook: Romney is constantly smirking with contempt, I CAN'T KEEP DRINKING LIKE THIS AT WORK!

Either that's his normal expression, or he's practiced an arrogant, contemptuous smirk a lot.

He isn't acting like a Presidential candidate, he's acting like a arrogant rich man who thinks he can buy anything, including the Presidency, and that a superpower sovereign state can be run the same way you'd run a multi-national corporation.


Agreed, and sadly the moderator and the President seemed to agree, basically contradicting 5% of the lies and obfuscation he was spewing.

Holy crap, now Mitt is trying to come out in favor of regulating Wall Street?

The guy who's been trumpeting deregulation and saying the problem is crushing government regulations is trying to say that Wall Street needs regulations?

He's flip-flopping in real time just to try to score points. He'll say anything to contradict the President, he'll say anything to curry votes, he is "this space for rent".

When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts.We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past".
"Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside.
I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America "

Yes, you read it right. These were HIS WORDS. If anyone else had uttered these words, it would sink them. I can't believe this man has duped so many people into voting for him, but go ahead, give him a second term so he has no election to worry about.. That's my PSA ..vote with caution
