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?

And then there's Frank Luntz's group:

And that's where I stopped bothering. F*ck Frank Luntz with a rusty chainsaw. He's up there with Karl Rove and Grover Norquist on the list of people who've truly farked political discourse in this country.

How I know Obama won the debate last night: If you go around furiously pointing out small subsets of one poll, you lost. Every single poll shows a general Obama victory, and that CNN poll? Gave Obama a 7 point victory? Also said that was within the margin of error, so it interviewed at best 200 people. But on every issue you point out except the economy, Romney won also within the margin or error. And since the only issue you've gotten traction on in the last couple of weeks is foreign policy, and you got completely blown out of the water there, I'm thinking a slight edge on one topic in one poll doesn't mean a whole hell of a lot.

Today polls matter? Ok I can't keep it straight with Republicans when opinions matter


When polls over sample dems and/or use the turnout models of 2008 and they show (surprise) a dem leading, it doesn't say much.

But when they show a republican winning, then it says something.

Do you understand now?

Besides, 0bama couldn't even convince his base that he is better for economy. Now that is funny.

Look at how the recent Gallup poll has Romney increasing his lead - obviously that isn't based on last night's debate, but (wait for it...wait...wait) it does tell you about the VP debate. Biden made his base happy but lost the middle.

Too funny.

I didn't watch the debate. I know who I'm voting for.

When I turned on the local talk radio derpers this morning (to get weather and traffic) they were raging about how Candy Crowley should be tied to a chair and forced to watch tapes of Sean Hannity until she "learns what being an impartial journalist is supposed to look like" and how, despite the clear media bias, Romney was the *REAL* winner.

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."
 
2012-10-17 06:48:56 PM  
Leadership?

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*

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.

meh, snap poll.

look at the detain. looking at overall win is like looking at national polls instead of electoral college.

what matters is how people feel about why they vote (e.g. economy, taxes, etc)

Try these

CNN Poll:
Romney Wins 54-40 on Economy,
49-46 on Health Care,
51-44 on Taxes,
59-36 on Deficit,
49-46 on Leadership,
All in Favor of Romney

so if people vote based on who got more airtime and recovered better from the debacle 2 weeks ago, then 0bama is all set.

Weaver already discussed it in a different thread earlier today.

- Rush accused Fox News of being part of a media conspiracy to make Obama look good
- Rush said the problem was that people were only comparing Obama to Romney, and instead they should be comparing Obama to Obama in 2008.

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."

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!"

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?

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.

• 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.

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!"



Great now lets go to the transcripts of the rose garden:
"Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourn with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.

As Americans let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those, both civilian and military, who represent us around the globe.

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."

The entirety of the speech prior to this is about Benghazi (about 3/5 of the whole speech this is about 1/5 of the speech). I am curious how half a paragraph (that ends referring to the attack in Benghazi) that is separated by a paragraph and a half from "No acts of terror" in the speech dictates Obama not classifying the Benghazi attack as a terrorist act, yet 10+prior paragraphs, about Benghazi and not 9/11 some how does nothing to indicate that this is classified as an act of terror.


The short version of it is Obama did call it an act of terror that is a fact. Period. Read the transcript yourself and stop listening to talking heads from either side (here it is even a foxnews link for you Link


This is similar to how Crowley's comments have been distorted about her "saying Romney is right"
or as she has commented "People are going to look at this through the prism they look at this through. I get that." What she said is people could interpret the "No act of terrorism" part as only referring to 9/11 HOWEVER given that it was part of an address called for the attack on Benghazi and focused on Benghazi it is not a far jump to say that he considers Benghazi an act of terrorism.



This brings me to a question I want to ask.
If the attacks on the consulate were (not saying they are but IF they were) triggered by the video. Why does that make it mutually exclusive and it is no longer considered an act of terrorism?

I feel like people have lost the definition of terrorism the last few years and link it purely to attacks by Muslims directed at the west. Failing to realize that the majority of the attacks at any of the embassies/consulates on 9/11 even ones that were mobs of people (like the Egypt Embassy one). Is technically an act of terrorism. It was purely a demonstration targeted at inciting fear in a group of people to try and change something.

or as a dictionary puts it:
"the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes."



Furthermore Crowley was also correct in addressing the point in favor of Romney, that the administration did wait 2 weeks before back tracking on the video stand point.

Threads like this are what happen when people only get news from talking heads looking to spin the news one way or another. Read what people said and make up your own farking mind. This is the reason why our country has gone to shiat. It is not the Republicans. It is not the Democrats. It is everyone deciding they need to be told what to think rather than thinking on their own and coming to their own decisions.

Did these people they're polling actually watch the debate last night or the rerun of the one on Oct 2nd because I don't remember Romney "delivered the third best performance of any Republican candidate in a presidential debate in 30+ years." Of course this schmuck also said he delivered the best Republican performance two weeks ago which is laughable since I thought McCain did better, sure Mit won the first debate, but wouldn't call that the best since it's easy to win a one sided debate.

This afternoon Mark Levin (similar deal to rush, plays on the same station here, no idea if he plays nationally) turned the rage dial all the way up to "potato".

The gist:

Obama lied and lied and lied. Like he always lies. The lies were continuous and shameful lies throughout his entire lying performance. Which as a liar like Obama only knows how to lie the lies were all we could expect. (Through half his segment it seemed every third word was 'lie' or some variant of).

Romney was strong, and honest and presidential throughout and held his own against a master liar like Obama.

Candy Crowley was in the tank for Obama, like the rest of "old media"

This debate doesn't really matter.

Oh, and Obama lied about everything so don't pay attention to anything the liar said.


The morning show on that station was a different Republican shill, who obviously missed the memo and came out and said that to be honest Obama won the debate, not by a lot but the night went to Obama. The folks calling in this morning after he said that were rather tetchy.

Do you ever get your information from factual sources, or is it Faux News propaganda all day every day like some of my other conservative friends? The speech WAS NOT about 9/11. Here's how the speech that Obama gave about the attack in Benghazi began:

"Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger. Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi."

He then talks about that specific attack for the next 2/3rds of the speech. He then ties it together with 9/11 due to the date. He then ties to the two together by mentioning the military and civilian people around the world who represent the US and risk their lives. Then he mentions terror:

"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."

That entire paragraph was about the Benghazi attack being an act of terror. Of course, anyone with an IQ above 80 who doesn't look at the world through a haze of right wing conspiracy derp would easily recognize this.

To be clear, the CNN poll in question also oversampled Republicans by eight percent. So Obama no doubt won by a larger margin, and probably tied or slightly won most of the issues the right is claiming he lost.

A facebook idiot was telling me yesterday that because Obama talked about 9/11 two paragraphs earlier, that means the "acts of terror" comment was about 9/11, not about Benghazi. He was also very adamant that the state does not create jobs; and yes, he works for the state.

That farker will try to turn America into Utah. But libs such as myself are supposed to be too open minded to mention it. Sister wives. How many farking cousins does Romney have? 30? 75? 150? We're just not supposed to mention it? I feel like his "Sure I like women, they can go home early to put a casserole in the oven" mentality opened him up to a binderful of criticism. fark the Mormons, those biatches are crazy.

No.

There's maybe two hundred or so people in the country who are going to vote for R/R. Most are billionaires or hundred-millionaires, and the remaining handful are family and/or close personal friends of Romney and Ryan.

You're thinking of the forty million+ people who are going to vote against Obama. Most of them will check the box, fill in the circle, or otherwise mark their ballot in such a way as to add to Romney's total (and a handful will fill out the ballot to add to the totals of Gary Johnson, Ron Paul or that one guy in Virginia) but none of them will voting for Romney, they will be voting for Not Obama because they'd rather have the world end than Obama have a second term.

FOX and the right wing pundits have been throwing a 5 alarm tantrum all day about the Benghazi toy Obama took away from them. It was their checkmate, and Irangate and last night really took the steam out of that. They are really going to be upset if he cements it on Monday.

Look at how the recent Gallup poll has Romney increasing his lead - obviously that isn't based on last night's debate,

Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh about that poll

Here's the regional makeup of it.

East Obama 52, Romney 48: O+4
Midwest Obama 52, Romney 48: O+4
South: Romney 61, Obama 39: R+22
West: Obama 53, Romney 47: O+6

Gee Romney is six points ahead in a national poll (which means nothing) based on results in a bunch of states he's likely to win by double digits.

AMAZING!

Where do you find that breakdown? All I ever see on their site is the overview.

Gallup's website here's the link to their poll


Thanks, it's surprising how much the South drags down the overall, but like you said, it's not like Obama was going to win those states anyway.

Mitt wouldn't even talk about Libya today. It's amazing how skillfully Obama diffused that issue. While I'm not with the "Obama is always playing rope-a-dope" crowd, I am impressed with the way Obama is able to take these types of criticisms and turn them back on his opponents.

cirby: Nobodyn0se:
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!"


He said 'no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation' in a speech that was mostly about the Benghazi attack and also mentioned 9/11. Admittedly, it is ambiguous, but if you listen to the entire speech it would be very disingenuous to claim that Obama does not consider the Benghazi attack as terrorism.

Where is your link to evidence that Candy Crowley admitted Romney was right?

You know, this may be an overly broad generalization, but typically the guy who is reduced to sitting in the corner screaming a single talking point over and over again isn't considered the winner of a debate. Especially when that talking point contradicts something you said earlier in the same debate. The fact that Romney is polling above single digits is a damning condemnation of the American political system and the intelligence of the average American.

GAT_00: How I know Obama won the debate last night: If you go around furiously pointing out small subsets of one poll, you lost. Every single poll shows a general Obama victory, and that CNN poll? Gave Obama a 7 point victory? Also said that was within the margin of error, so it interviewed at best 200 people. But on every issue you point out except the economy, Romney won also within the margin or error. And since the only issue you've gotten traction on in the last couple of weeks is foreign policy, and you got completely blown out of the water there, I'm thinking a slight edge on one topic in one poll doesn't mean a whole hell of a lot.


CNN also stated quite a few times that their poll over sampled Republicans. I guess they bowed to the "skewed polls" pressure and skewed theirs to placate the right.

How did Romney win on the economy? He said he would give us energy independence by using our energy-- including coal, oil, and natural gas-- here at home. He would lower the cost of gasoline that way.

The only way that works is by prohibiting most fossil fuel export. In essence, he is talking far greater regulation of energy companies than anymajor party presidential candidate I have ever heard. Is he going to call up the CEO of BP and explain that their oil extracted from the Gulf Coast can only be sold in the US, and at lower cost than they could get overseas? Last time that happened to the British, they talked the Kennedy Administration into overthrowing the democratically elected government of Iran and install the Shah.

We export coal, oil and natural gas overseas, often to the countries that supply us with electronics. Does Romney really want a trade war with the Pacific Rim?

I'd imagine that it would force us into extreme isolation-- we reduce energy exports significantly, we violate those free trade agreements he is extolling and hoping to expand in South America.

He handed Obama the perfect weapon to use against him in the third debate: Romney, Mr. Business, knows NOTHING about the commodities markets or global trade. He has no concept of how intertwined it all is, and based on that ignorance is more than capable of destroying our economy and economies around the world

I know that most people don't know squat about this kind of stuff. Those polls are meaningless because of that. But I was sitting in my truck driving from Knoxville TN to Youngstown OH thinking about this He knows absolutely nothing if he thinks he can have an actual "energy policy" like he talks about. It is not possible.

President Obama needs to clearly state that the only way Mitt Romney's plan for eergy indepedence would be to "Nationalize" the U.S. oil industry, which is "SOSHULISM". Take the unbased fear the GOP created arpound the word "socialism" and use it against them except this time with the truth.

Lligeret: The short version of it is Obama did call it an act of terror that is a fact. Period


Obama's statement in general about "Acts of terror" doesn't absolve the administration's position for the first 15 days after the incident that this was a mob riot in reaction to a youtube video. Whether a mob reaction or a planned attack, BOTH are acts of terror yet when Obama spoke in front of the UN, he essentially apologized for the video, said the US Gov had nothing to do with it and proclaimed that there wasn't anything he could do about it.

The first 2 weeks - Video, Video, Video.

The morning shows were lit up about discussions over the limits of free speech and over here in Farkistan, messers Phillip Francis Queeg and Weaver95 were calling for the film producer to be brought up on treason charges.


That is what we saw play out the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well - for as the city outside these walls makes clear, we are a country that has welcomed people of every race and religion. We are home to Muslims who worship across our country. We not only respect the freedom of religion - we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. We understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them.

Except the "crude and disgusting video" didn't spark any outrage and had nothing to do with Bengazi. Most people hadn't seen it.

What lies? I never made any claims or took any positions besides posting the transcript of Obama's speech in front of the UN. There isn't anything to argue here, unless you are trying to say that Obama wasn't actually there.


When you have no other argument, just throw out "Derp" "Warrgarbl" and "lies" doesn't make your point.

There really is no point to having a discussion with most of the right wingers in this forums (with the notable exceptions of cman and skullcrusher) because if you present facts and data that counter their positions they:

1. Ignore the post and data entirely and/or
2. Refuse to believe it because it comes from a "biased source" i.e. from somehting other than the right wing Wurlitzer and/or
3. Keep repeating the same set of debunked lies in every single thread on the boards, over and over.

Really the only option left is straight out mocking because you and your ilk refuse to have a conversation.

And this, kiddos, is why national polls are completely meaningless. I don't care if Mississippi or Oklahoma votes out the scary black man by 99-1.

At this point, I'm really only paying attention to Ohio polls and Sam Wang's Meta Margin of state polling. I'll give Silver a cursory glance, but I feel he's overly tinkered with his model putting in needless weighing and economic data.

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.

He said trickle-down government has never worked, which is meaningless since trickle-down government itself doesn't mean anything. It's just some phrase they came up with to counter trickle-down economics barbs from the Democrats.


They seem to have forgotten that "trickle down" was popularized (or invented) by Dave Stockman, Reagan, budget czar.

With those, 0bama is over 9000.

What if we include Romney's "IT'S MY TURN!! MY TURN!! MY TURN!! MY TURN!! WAAAAA!!!!!!"

easily cancelled out by 0bama whining that he lost 5 seconds and then goes on to talk for an extra minute.

doesn't even count when 0bama asked the moderator if they could more on because he is getting crushed (bailout, fast and furious)

Romney Wins 54-40 on Economy,
49-46 on Health Care,
51-44 on Taxes,
59-36 on Deficit,
49-46 on Leadership,
All in Favor of Romney

Today polls matter? Ok I can't keep it straight with Republicans when opinions matter


CNN has had this... interesting problem since the first debate, in that they've mainly sampled old, white, southern men in order to make Romney's chances look better than they really are. Please note that Romney can only manage about 50% in most categories with pretty much the only people Republicans can count on to vote for them anymore.

Romney doesn't need to say anything, the talk show hosts do it all for him. Rush was raging and screaming this morning about how Obama and Candy were both lying, bullying, filthy human beings. Everything Obama said about Benghazi that wasn't "I commanded the attack personally, ha ha ha kill kill!" was a heathen fib according to Limbaugh. That was on top of how he says the economy is still crashing into the depths, unemployment is shooting up faster than the Space Shuttle, and companies everywhere are firing people and cutting hours because of health care.

I don't know how that man can still be alive, considering all the drugs he takes and the masses of cholesterol in his arteries, you'd think his heart would have said "fark you" and quit by now.

/Rush also said that Democrats want women to be minxes, screwing like minxes, having babies like minxes, and other sexual things related to minxes, and that women are tired of being told to be like minxes and demanding to be given the Republican treatment

amiable: Really the only option left is straight out mocking because you and your ilk refuse to have a conversation.


There is no conversation to be had on this issue.

The administration's official stance for the first 14 days after the attack was that it was mob violence in reaction to the Innocence of Muslims video. The sources are not left or right leaning but actual videos and public transcripts of the president's comments. If you cant view the videos and read the transcripts and form your own conclusions that is your problem. The rest of the country, congress and the world clearly see a shift around the 14 day mark to acknowledging that this was a planned attack and not just mob violence.

Trying to explain this to a liberal who will support Obama in lockstep is like trying to rationally interact with a 9/11 truther

As a liberal, I agree about the 2 weeks. The Obama administration certainly stated that the terrorist attack was caused by violence incited from the video. As they got more evidence, their stance shifted. As a forensic scientist, I wholeheartedly approve of this. That some people state their assumptions as truth publicly before the evidence is in appalls me (especially so when they do it for political points). It is bad policy to go by assumptions and gut feelings in these situations, especially when it deals with our relationship with another country.
