xanadian: That's not the point. At least, not how I see it. Romney's "issues" were empty. But he DELIVERED the performance. It's like saying how "Lord of the Rings" didn't really mean anything because what happened in the movie was fiction.
blastoh: Neal Boortz @TalkmasterThere was NO surplus in 2001. That surplus was a PROJECTION and it assumed a continuation of the Dot-com economic explosion.--------------------And assuming there would be no massive tax cut, or wars waged.
Generation_D: More like, the game is already something like 35-0 and now its 35-7.But there's still time! And the media loves sports cliches.
Hyjamon: WizardofToast: IrateShadow: Isn't Boortz a libertarian and totally not a republican at all?There are two kinds of libertarians. Libertarians and Republicans with Groucho glasses.I listen to his show everyday and it is hard to categorize him at the moment. He is a libertarian on social issues...he is okay with doing away with the drug war, he thinks prostitution should be legalized, doesn't really care about gays getting married, and he doesn't like religious craziness but he seems republican with his fiscal opinions, that and he really hates Obama. He plans on retiring on Jan 19th or 20th, so I imagine we will get more crazy from him as he no longer cares about staying on the air. His motto this year is "Talking Dangerously".Interestingly I have been listening to Neal Boortz, Rush, Hannity and Erik Erickson everyday for over a year, and I am still leaning toward Obama. I am trying give them a chance to convince me that Romney is better and that's where they fall short. All they talk about is how terrible Obama is, but they can't tell me why Romney would be better beyond "He is not Obama."If Romney wants to win over the independents, he needs to start getting some facts, details and specifics on his plans.
Agneska: Hai Guyz, I missed the debate last night. Who won? =D
sweetmelissa31: The Obama Media:
blahpers: Skyrmion: "Obama REFUSES to recognize that cutting tax rates usually leads to increased tax revenues. Why won't Romney hit this point? "Because you're the only person left who is dumb enough to believe this 1980s talking-point?No joke. By that logic, we be ridiculously wealthy right now compared to the 60s.
Krymson Tyde: Neal Boortz is a Farker? What's his handle?
sammyk: Generation_D: More like, the game is already something like 35-0 and now its 35-7.But there's still time! And the media loves sports cliches.But Nate Silver is only giving Obama a 96.9% chance on the now cast. It was 97.3% yesterday. Clearly the Obama campaign is doomed. Doomed I tell you.
whizbangthedirtfarmer: Boortz was moderately amusing until he started to metamorphose into a Republican, all the while exclaiming that he wasn't a Republican, but always spewing Republican talking points.Oh, and the debate wasn't as much of a landslide for those who paid attention. Only the most hardcore Mitt-ites I've seen are saying he won. The rest of the people go from, "geez, what an asshole" to "he didn't really tell us anything" in their opinions.

Generation_D: Lots of mitigating factors. Kerry won debate 1 in 2004, that didn't help him win over all. Obama did not gaffe, he only let Romney talk too much and wasn't aggressive enough. Romney came off as aggressive and this turns some people off.All that being said, I think the collective mood of Obama supporters was somewhere between WTF and WTF.Every cliche you can say about Obama's negatives: That he can't talk without a prompter, that he is aloof, that he doesn't give a crap about middle America, that he is in over his head, that he can't lead... all came through.Romney came off like either a smarmy car salesman closing a deal or a corporate executive telling employees they wouldn't be laid off they'd be right sized.The sucky thing is, that stuff sells. We'll see how much, and to what extent. Outside of talking head land, I still think Romney's a slimeball who'd sell out his own grandmother to make a profit, and Obama does know how to listen to strong advice and make the right call most of the time.So my vote's unswayed. I just wish Obama came out and bloodied his knuckles like Bill Clinton would have. The damn race would be over with by now.
