Weaver95: Limbaugh just accused the Candy of 'journalistic terrorism' against Romney. I can't make this shiat up. He's REALLY desperate today.
Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: PanicMan: The thing that annoys me is that this happened a month ago and just today is the first time I've ever heard anyone make that distinction. It just smacks of goalpost moving.This is where we are? A few weeks before the election and Romney's people are arguing f*cking semantics? Guys, get your sh*t together. Seriously.
vastcat: Waiting for somebody to update the list of people scheming against the GOP to now include moderators.
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.
That article sure is a lot of
Conservatives were outraged
Aarontology: I'm really curious what they'll do when Obama wins re-election and the Democrats hold onto the Senate. Especially if the GOP loses seats in the House.
Weaver95: Limbaugh is more than a bit incoherent today.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: Losers whine about the moderators
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;
Blowmonkey: Zapruder: 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."That's like every right wing broadcast, ever.
Lando Lincoln: 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 words1. Drill, baby, drill2. Fix public education by eliminating teacher's unions3. Slap China's knuckles with a ruler for cheating on trade policies4. Cut the deficit with magic5. Repeal Obamacare, deregulate the hell out of everything and eliminate more unions

Fuggin Bizzy: Lando Lincoln: Hollie Maea: There are two things that are definitely true:1. The set of people who won a debate and the set of people whining about the moderator is a null set.2. The set of people who say "well it was a tie" and the set of people who did not lose a debate is a null set.3. Romney is a dickbag that always has to get the last word.Bzzt. Sorry, your assertions must be phrased in terms of set theory.
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: 1. Energy Independence (it's implied)
"DID I SAY TO BRING UP THE '36 DUESENBURG, PORTERHOUSE? THEN WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? I ALWAYS DRIVE THE '47 ROLLS ON TUESDAYS! YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE FOR NOT KNOWING THAT! HURRY WITH THAT, AND IF I SEE SO MUCH AS A SPOT ON THE LEATHER INTERIOR, I SWEAR TO GOD..."
tomcatadam: qorkfiend: I half expected Romney to jump up and try to get the last word.It showed remarkable constraint compared to the rest of the debate.
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
Hollie Maea: Lando Lincoln: 3. Romney is a dickbag that always has to get the last word.That's what made it so awesome to see Obama drop the 47% bomb in the only possible way that would guarantee that Romney could not respond.
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? 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.
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.
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.
culebra: Here are 1000 words about how the night went for Romney/Republicans.[i1159.photobucket.com image 850x471]Spin away, but Romney just showed everyone what an easily perturbed asshole he is. We'd be invading Iran 5 minutes into his presidency. And that's only if he has to eat a sandwich first or something. Loose Cannon.
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.
riverwalk barfly: I think her interjection into the debate was inappropriate. But what is done cannot be undone. Beautiful.
fruitloop: fark you guys! We're having a ladder and a glass of orange juice moderate the 3rd debate. Will that shut you assholes up?/probably not
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: The speech he referenced was absolutely, positively about the incident in question, first off.Second, the paragraph in question:"No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. 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.
Weaver95: yeah but it's getting worse!
Weaver95: its looking like the GOP shills groupmind response to Romney getting his ass kicked last night is gonna be something along the lines of 1. blame the moderator 2. Romney won and Obama lost and 3. debates don't matter...but if they DO matter then Romney won.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.
