FirstNationalBastard: Gyrfalcon: FirstNationalBastard: How could he win on anything?

All he did was spew platitudes and not offer a single clue as to what kind of plan he had to make these pie in the sky things happen. His solution to everything was, literally, the rainbows and unicorns that the Republitards associate with Obama. In fact, Rainbows and Unicorns are more substantial than Romney's plans, because we've seen rainbows.

Are people really this retarded?

Are you just now asking that question?

So I held out hope that Americans weren't completely retarded a bit too long. A year in which Honey Boo Boo becomes a hit and the public aren't laughing at every word Mitt Romney has to say because they realize it's all obvious lies finally killed my hope for an intelligent America. Now, I'm about ready to sit back and watch the inevitable slide into a third world nation thanks to stupid people voting against their own interests.


I'm sorry this has killed your hopes and dreams.

Have a cookie and some Scotch.

Mentat: Mr. Coffee Nerves: I thought "Wow, the White House staff must be having a hell of a time cleaning off Obama's shoes this morning, assuming they had ace spelunkers capable of retrieving them from Romney's small bowel."

An Obama campaign guy called me today asking for money. He was giddy over the debate last night. I get the impression that a lot of the people he's been calling were pretty positive.


He probably hit his quota and was thinking about that Barbie pink car he'll receive next month.

So what. CNN is still one of the most conservative of the MSM outlets. Owned by an international mega-conglomerate that directly profits off of the GOP's 'supply side' trickle-down economics scam.

I have follow a disproportionate number of Texans on Twitter (which is even odder considering I've never stepped foot in that state--but it's a long story). Glad I'm not the only one who finds Aggie fans...weird. Like, really weird.

Meh. While I agree with your sentiment, anyone who planned on making an informed decision this election has already gotten informed and made their decision.

All that's left at this point are people who would be swayed by silly notions like "who won the debates."

I guess what I'm saying is that asking people who have chosen to be willfully ignorant for the last 6 months to suddenly care and educate themselves seems like tilting at windmills.

It's so amazing to me how the right wing will straight up admit that a moderator correcting Romney on the facts is being in the bag for Obama, which is a subtle way of saying Obama has the facts and Romney doesn't.

You do realize that the moderator - Candy Crowley - actually admitted that Romney was right? After the debate, when the 70 million or so people who saw the "incorrection" had already tuned out? She even tried to weasel it then, but couldn't actually justify her action.

It's only a "correction" when you're correct.

This is on top of allowing Obama to complain - incorrectly - that he was being shorted on time, and interrupting Romney continually with no basis for doing so.

Obama's pretend-justification for claiming he said the Benghazi attack was terrorism was in reference to a speech he gave about the original 9/11 attack anniversary. No, he didn't say anything like "the Benghazi attack was terrorism." On the other hand, for that whole first two weeks, his entire staff was saying it was all about that silly video. One generic reference to terrorism doesn't undo dozens of "it was the Mohammed video, dammit!"

The GOP and their water-carriers are comprised almost entirely of pussies.

Rather than admit anything, you set about looking for someone to blame, or outlier polls . It can't possibly be that you simply dropped the ball.

This Nancy-boy masquerading as John Wayne bit is getting tiresome. Take off those jammies and put on your big boy pants. Pathetic.

You realize that she said no such thing and that Obama referred to the Benghazi attack as an "act of terror" the very next day, right?

You realize that the fact that you have to throw out three separate lines of spin to make Romneys lie even remotely true weakens your case and doesn't strengthen it, right?

What am I talking about, of course you don't. Keep going after Obama on foreign policy that one briar patch he *doesn't* want to be thrown into, certainly.

So Romney pulled a 2008 Obama? He offered no detailed plans. Obama hasn't offered any plans for the next 4 years either. What is his plan to get 1 million new jobs? His plan to reduce the costs of entitlements? His plan to halve the deficit? Obama has offered no plans. Get shelved Simpson Bowles. His only plans he offered were his two budgets, unanimously defeated. Amazing how liberals ignore the fact that Obama has only one slab, disparage Romney.

Oh don't worry, if he listened he won't stop talking about how he martyred himself by choosing to listen to a talk show.

(from "stfusexists")

Here are a list of things Obama is saying about job creation:

• Keep jobs in this country
• Reform the tax code to encourage the above goal, and reward small businesses who create job
• Make sure community colleges focus on affordable job training
• Expand the green energy sector
• Take the money we've been spending on two wars to invest in infrastructure, the economy, etc.


Here is what Romney said:

• I know how to create jobs
• I'm going to create jobs
• You need a job

I didn't hear him, but I heard Hannity go all angry black man for about 20 minutes of his radio show. Not using the word black, of course, but the picture he was try to paint was unmistakable.

Of course, when Romney got more time than Obama in the first debate it was a-okay, right?


Umm. The democrats have glad more air time at every debate. Good try lying though.

Subby,
Polls show that while individuals like every benefit of the ACA, they screech "Soshulist!!1!!" when asked their opinion on Obamacare. What's your point?
Personally, I'm more troubled by the fact that any nonpartisan individual thought Romney won any aspect of that debate. Was there a Republican feed nobody told me about?

//would certainly explain the Invisible Obama I keep hearing about from my mother in law.

You only need to ask one thing to know whether or not Obama won the debate. Were fox 'news' and talk radio whining all day about how unfair and biased the media was?

No? Obama lost
Yes? Obama dominated.

Keep whining, the tears are delicious

Romney: I-I-I-I think I'm supposed to get the last question there Candy.
Crowley: No, actually, you're not.
Romney: Yes, I think so. I'd like to respond to the President if I may.
Crowley: You agreed to the rules of the debate Governor, so we're moving on.
Romney: Trickle-down government.
Crowley: ...
Romney: *nailed it*


Holy shiat. Are you ever right on anything? Debate agreement Saud the person answering second got to answer last. Crowley broke that rule 5 times for Obama. I can't wait for the one time you are actually correct on some point.

I love everyone in here trying to prove won by the fact that a survey that SAYS he lost has some sub-polls that show him winning.

it's like when a football team loses and all the fans come out to say "but we had more yards and higher completion percentage and fewer penalities so really we should have won!"
