xanadian: I'm afraid this is one of those instances where I'll have to side with the conservatards...Check out the timeline further down in the article. Sure, he mentions "terror" on Sept. 12, but refuses to tie in the Libya incident as a terrorist attack on Sept. 25.According to the article, anyway.
Snarky Acronym: Romney is incredibly thin skinned. I can't imagine him going head-to-head with an adversarial head of state. He's never had anyone stand up to him his entire life as Obama did last night. It's totally threw him off his game. Closest he's ever gotten to somebody that looks like Obama is the guy that shines his shoes. He can't fathom why he can't win against Obama, it's beyond his belief system.
CPennypacker: HeartBurnKid: CPennypacker: Yeah. Complaining about the moderator means you know you lost. Suck it up.Lehrer did genuinely suck, though.But somehow the liberal pundits still admitted Obama lostHell Chris Matthews almost had a meltdown on live television.
Weaver95: Limbaugh just accused the Candy of 'journalistic terrorism' against Romney. I can't make this shiat up. He's REALLY desperate today.
Mentat: At least Limbaugh didn't wait 14 days to call her a terrorist.
EnviroDude: Even the NFL had the decency to pull the replacement ref that was a Saints fan from officiating the Saints game. To expect as much courtesy in our debates, well, that is asking tooo much.When you best hope of a win is to tag team with the moderator, then you really don't have much to run on;
vrax: codergirl42: Weaver95: I think part of what I find so fascinating about the GOP these days is their absolute belief that they are right and everyone else is wrong. there is zero doubt among any of them. the Democrats watched the first debate and most of them admitted that hey, Romney came out ahead. the GOP tho - Romney got his ass kicked last night and today ALL the Republicans are saying Romney won. they can't admit their guy did poorly.that's amazing to watch...the almost fanatical religious belief in their own cause. scary sometimes too but still fascinating.My step sister is one of the die hard republican types but she did admit she thought Obama won the debate. She then proceeded to call the moderator biased.Is she also adopted from a "special needs" family?
Zapruder: Listen libtards, Fartbongo might have said that "No act of terror" will something something America, and it might have been said while he was talking about the Benghazi attacks, but that doesn't mean he said that it was an act of terror! It's math!What he needed to say was,"This was an act of terror. And by 'this' I mean the attack on Benghazi. It was an act of terror in Benghazi. It was a terrible act of terror in Benghazi that was an act of terror. Terror. Benghazi. Benghazi was under a terrorist attack when terrorists attacked Benghazi which was attacked by terror. Benghazi. Terror."
vastcat: Waiting for somebody to update the list of people scheming against the GOP to now include moderators.
mpirooz: Bullseyed: dameron: Awww. She didn't let Romney lie to the camera with a big smile on his face. Boo farking hoo.Uh, she admitted that she and Obama are liars on national tv today...Obama never called the attack in Libya an act of terror.Get the transcript and search for terror. Tell me what you find.

MusicMakeMyHeadPound: So, serious question, FarkCons: Romney finally blurted out his "five point plan" almost as a non-sequitur during that question about "Assure me you're not going to be another Bush" and this is what I got:1. Energy Independence (it's implied)2. Rattle the saber with China3. Balance the budget4. ???5. Championing small businessThe transcripts do nothing to help since Romney sucks even at basic counting, apparently.What's number 4?/number 4 count//string 4 words
3_Butt_Cheeks: " MSNBC Tingler-in-Chief Chris Matthews ..."Annnnd we have a win.
Philip Francis Queeg: MyRandomName: Why aren't liberals asking what Obama's specific plan to get 1 million manufacturing jobs is? You would expect then to ask the guy actually in government what his detailed policy is before the guy who is outside and will need to work with congressional leaders to formulate a plan... but that would require being logically consistent which fark liberals are incapable of.Anerican Job Act
MyRandomName: sammyk: If Romney actually had anything of substance to say last night it would be all over the news. Instead we get this.I think I will actually listen to Rush today just to hear him crySo by your assertion, Obama stated nothing of substance either. Good to know.Why aren't liberals asking what Obama's specific plan to get 1 million manufacturing jobs is?

Hollie Maea: I think Romney is in a bit of trouble in regards to the final debate. The only topic that snap poll responders scored him good on last night was the economy (apparently undecided voters like platitudes...who knew?). But the final debate will only be on foreign policy topics, so Mitt will be hard pressed to spend the whole time bleating about the economy.
tomcatadam: Weaver95: Romney did NOT like being talked back too, and looked like he was barely containing his petulant rage.Government does not create jobs. Government does not create jobs. Government does not create jobs.Reminded me of my first portable cd player. It too tended to repeat the same line overand overand overwhen it was breaking down.
Lando Lincoln: 3. Romney is a dickbag that always has to get the last word.
Mentat: Weaver95: Rush is saying that the GOP won, that debates don't matter and that you are stupid if you think Obama beat Romney. Oh, and that debates don't matter, but Romney won and Obama was stuttering and sweating and failure incarnate...not that it mattered because MODERATORS and the lying, so many lies and none of it mattered but if it did matter than Romney won.What Rush Limbaugh saw:[imageshack.us image 400x276]What the rest of us saw:[imageshack.us image 500x412]
Smeggy Smurf: If rMoney lost why is he up in the Gallup poll even high than before the debate?Link
THX 1138: Weaver95: catching the Limbaugh hour right now (@weaverXP if you want to join me)Thanks Weav. Didn't realize you did more than just give us the occasional summary here on Fark.
Weaver95: catching the Limbaugh hour right now (@weaverXP if you want to join me)
Conservatives were outraged
Aarontology: Weaver95: i'm actually worried about the GOP. its looking like they've decided to simply ignore reality and not even bother trying to fix their own issues.They've been like that for at least three 30 years, dude.
Weaver95: Aarontology: Weaver95: i'm actually worried about the GOP. its looking like they've decided to simply ignore reality and not even bother trying to fix their own issues.They've been like that for at least three years, dude.yeah but it's getting worse!
sammyk: NewportBarGuy: Weaver95: yeah but it's getting worse!They're getting older, more senile, and increasingly willing to drive right through Farmers Markets filled with their perceived enemies./I'm listening too. Day off today.//Can only take a little more of his idiocy.Listening too. This is so childish.
Weaver95: yeah but it's getting worse!
Weaver95: i'm actually worried about the GOP. its looking like they've decided to simply ignore reality and not even bother trying to fix their own issues.
Weaver95: Limbaugh is more than a bit incoherent today.
Elandriel: Gotta keep the base fired up after all. Gotta try to hold on to those undecideds.Extremely disappointing that the fate of the country is decided by wishy washy people who can't be bothered to pay attention until the last 5 minutes of the game.
Weaver95: catching the Limbaugh hour right now (@weaverXP if you want to join me) and it looks like the official GOP mantra on this debate loss is going to be 1. Romney won. 2. Obama lost badly and 3. MODERATORS omg moderators so many moderators!
I love how these assholes are putting a NewsBusters article on their main page:Dan Gainor is the Boone Pickens Fellow and the Media Research Center's Vice President for Business and Culture.
"I'm Brent Bozell and I approve this vomitous blog post masquerading as news commentary. It's what we do best."
EnviroDude: When you best hope of a win is to tag team with the moderator, then you really don't have much to run on;
