bdub77: I think something else was up. I don't know if it was campaign strategy, off night, personal problems, international problems, what, but he was either distracted or doing it on purpose.


I think it was campaign strategy. Obama has a significant lead, he was playing it safe. I hated it, I saw it pretty much the same you did as Obama was timid, missed too many chances for counters and whatnot but I think they were playing it safe.

OrygunFarker: Lando Lincoln: So the candidates are provided with a pen and paper on the podium already...and Romney took some paper out of his pocket and put it on the podium.

Yeah. That's cheating.

Yep, Romney cheated so now Rev Al is now automatically President and Bill Mahr is Secretary of State.

/Am I doing that right?

lokidecat: I think it was a good tactic.
Obama let him dig a deep, wide, stupid hole filled with lies.

I could've done without the condescending smirks, but letting Romney talk is a brilliant strategy.
He's an asshat and was torn apart by political fact sites.

Debates go like this:
1. Romney appears to win by talking a lot and being aggressive.
2. Obama goads him and and makes him talk more.
3. Romney gets owned and buried under the weight of his cluelessness. Obama goes Blake from Glengarry on him.


It would be nice to think this was a strategy. But I don't think it was. Obama was not on his game. He's not the strongest debater anyway and he really didn't perform well in the first 2008 debate. But he came around and probably will this time too.

To be honest, Obama should not have agreed to the debates. He didn't need them. The incumbent president, especially one already winning, has nothing to gain and everything to lose by doing this.

Check the video at the link. After Romney tosses the "item" onto the podium, he unfolds it.

Considering that the handkerchief he used in the screengrabs was folded, what was he unfolding?

Was he unfolding the hankie so he could re-fold it?

Once again, strawman argument.

A handkerchief can also (and is frequently) employed as a method of concealing another object.

You know, like those magic shows your weird Uncle used to put on for you in the bedroom, just before he touched you ... there?

Those ones.

He proceeded to unfold whatever he tossed on the podium at 0:13, even glancing down at it as he did so.

Why would you unfold a handkerchief immediately after taking it out, only to re-fold it in exactly the same way?

It it possible that notes were, you know, inside the hankie?

Which video did you see it in yourself, or are you talking about the link way back up there that said the same thing but didn't actually have that still at that time in the video it embedded?

I'm honestly looking for it, I find it hard to believe that even Romney's folks would be that blatant a gang of liars but that shot is not at 1:26:35.

If you gave this report even a smidgen of credibility, you are too dumb to vote. I mean, my God, so farking dumb. And yet I suspect the people who DO believe that there's even the smallest chance that a guy running for president would blatantly break agreed upon debate rules in front of 62 million interested voters and do so blatantly, those people probably consider themselves pretty smart. So smart, they can't believe people can't see how much smarter than most people they really are.

So seriously, are you that dumb?

kimwim: Why would he have put a hanky on the table? That would have been weird. And a hanky isn't so large, with such heft. He is a lying sack of shiat, through and through.


Well, one would think that he might have a hanky in case he started sweating, but the room was cold, as was requested by both campaigns and was mentioned by the moderator before the debate started.

Yeah, it's sketchy as shiat.

Do you have another explanation for him unfolding something right after tossing it onto the podium? Has he fired his valet for not folding the handkerchief to his specifications?

Or was he unfolding something other than a handkerchief?

As I stated above:

Simple answer: No. There are also plenty of things which can be believed without "proof". I ask you -- Do you believe the narrative regarding Osama Bin Laden's death? I do, but there's very little "proof" that it is so. We believe things all of the time with less-than-perfect proof.

Shaky Proof, as stated above:

- His clear subterfuge in planting the kerchief. If it's not a big deal, why go through the effort to hide it so intensely?

- No kerchief I've ever thrown / folded has ever looked like that, bounced like that, or stayed flat like that. This sounds retarded but I would fold dozens if not over a hundred a day. This involves throwing them down on a table in a similar manner. There is way too much weight and bounce going on there for it to be simple cloth. Obviously others cannot identify with this, but it does reinforce my suspicions from a personal perspective.

- You can see him work with whatever is on his table very early on in the video. Unless he's playing idly with his handkerchief during the debate.

- His previous character flaws and his previous actions lead me to believe he is predisposed to cheating / unethical behaviour, with a general philosophy of "be and do whatever it takes to leverage victory".

So, agree to disagree. But I have my reasons, and once again, I don't care terribly much. Today's my tinfoil day.
