tenpoundsofcheese: Based on the debates, voters have seen two different versions of 0bama and one consistent Romney.
poot_rootbeer: Speaking of miles, how far are you planning to move those goalposts?
THX 1138: THX 1138: The transcript is out there. Has anyone done a word count for each candidate?Never mind.478 words in Romney's favor.
tenpoundsofcheese: one consistent Romney
SouthParkCon: Everyone knows Obama could have dropped trou, spread his cheeks and beefed a premie on stage and Candy and the rest of his followers at CNN would have applauded and called him the greatest debater since Plato. I don't expect objectivity from CNN or Fox News, that's why I rely on magic beans and the ramblings of decrepit women.
efgeise: born_yesterday: Hmmm. After their magic underwear hero got thrashed, you know what I'm missing?I'm missing all that talk about Obama needing a teleprompter.Go ahead. Throw some teleprompter love our way, you trolling farks.Obviously the moderator had a teleprompter that she showed Obama, but kept perfectly hidden from Romney, the audience, and all of the television cameras.
sprawl15: Dusk-You-n-Me: Romney ceded some of his time by directly asking Obama questions, a violation of debate rules.ANSWER THE QUESTIONWell, I-ANSWER THE QUESTIONLet me exp-ANSWER THE QUESTIONOK, the situation is more complicated than you're making it because bla bla bla.WHY ARE WE LETTING HIM TALK
Vegan Meat Popsicle: I think that was Lehrer's biggest mistake. He assumed politicians would just play by the rules when he should have known they were just going to talk and talk and talk until he told them to shut up.
Dr.Mxyzptlk.: Obama speaks slower because standard English is not his first language.
PanicMan: BeesNuts: According to CNN's timekeeping, Obama got 44:04 minutes of speaking time, while Romney got 40:50.Let's focus a little more on how they used their time than how much time they got.I agree with you, but I just have to say that I don't trust CNN's ability to accurately work a stopwatch.
wippit: Jackson Herring: Lurking Fear: tenp0unds0fcheese strikes me as one of those poor southerners who vote republican and defend them despite logic or reason because you know, someday he'll be rich and those republican policies will finally work in his favor. people who make inflammatory posts on the internet dot com in order to generate negative attentionOooo! I know this one! I know this one!It's goblin!No, wait... ogre? Kobold? Halfling? Catoblepas?Aw crap, let me go get the Monster Manual, I know it's in there somewhere....
tenpoundsofcheese: fta: HURP A DERP
tenpoundsofcheese: No one is criticizing Candy because it was a much closer debate, they criticized her because of her actions.
HeartBurnKid: Yes, because those extra 3 minutes made such a huge difference.
