oldfarthenry: Poor Ryan. He spent hours in the gym doing all those crunchies & reps only to get slapped into submission by Biden's liver-spotted dick.

Considering that Martha Radzattz and Biden double teamed him, Ryan didn't do bad. I suppose if he had told Biden to STFU, then the left would have had puppies for him dissing the VP. Radzattz should have controlled the debate, but as she is in titz deep in the Obama campaign, you wouldn't expect anything less.

As I was told in High School by my coach, "When you are biatchin' about the refs or how the other teams acts, well, you're usually getting your arse kicked." Of course, even the NFL had the courtesy to remove the pro-Saints replacement ref from the Saints game he was scheduled to officiate. Guess having an insider to double team is fair if you are Obama and losing a campaign you were winning two weeks ago.

Before these debates started I really didn't think much about the moderators. I don't think anyone did. But now it's pretty clear that the moderators themselves are having a direct impact on the outcome of the actual debates.

In the first debate Lehrer didn't really pick sides. In the VP debate the moderator was clearly biased against Ryan. She let Biden interrupt Ryan multiple times and kept asking for "details" and "specifics" after Ryan finished speaking. In yesterday's debate.. Well. Just RTFA. She should be ashamed of herself.

Four major debates and no moderator from Fox News or any other form of alternative news station/websites. Only the MSM, which have a proven liberal bias, are represented.

Brubold: 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. He's at a decided disadvantage when it comes to foreign policy; the only foreign policy topic for which some considered him to have an advantage was Libya, and he shat the bed with that one last night.

Conservative commentators are already howling about how much it sucks for the final debate to be on foreign policy.

Actually now Romney gets to revisit the Libya situation again and this time he has quotes from Anderson Cooper, Politico, and even Crowley that back up his statement on the situation. Obama talked about how bad it was for Romney to try and score political points over the attack all while Obama was trying to paint a narrative that made him look blameless before the election.


Counterpoint: Obama will probably kill the terrorists responsible for the attack 4 hours before the debate. Cause that's how he rolls.

I'll take any opportunity to post the last words of the debate. I'm so happy that Romney won the coin toss, guaranteeing that Obama would end the night.


I believe Governor Romney is a good man. Loves his family, cares about his faith. But I also believe that when he said behind closed doors that 47 percent of the country considered themselves victims who refuse personal responsibility, think about who he was talking about.

Folks on Social Security who've worked all their lives. Veterans who've sacrificed for this country. Students who are out there trying to hopefully advance their own dreams, but also this country's dreams. Soldiers who are overseas fighting for us right now. People who are working hard every day, paying payroll tax, gas taxes, but don't make enough income.

And I want to fight for them. That's what I've been doing for the last four years. Because if they succeed, I believe the country succeeds.

When my grandfather fought in World War II and he came back and he got a G.I. Bill and that allowed him to go to college, that wasn't a handout. That was something that advanced the entire country. And I want to make sure that the next generation has those same opportunities.
That's why I'm asking for your vote and that's why I'm asking for another four years.


The only way that could have been better would be if Obama had dropped his mic when he was done.

Second, the paragraph in question:

Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done."

The text very clearly refers the incident in question as an act of terror.


Yeah, but INVISIBLE OBAMA said the following:

"No acts of terror - not that THIS incident was an act of terror, I'm just mentioning it today because this incident reminded me of actual acts of terror, that's all - will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for."
