How 'bout the fact that "Al-Qaeda #2" now has a life expectancy comparable to that of "Spinal Tap Drummer"?

Personally, I would love to hear Obaba say at the next debate, "You are one lying corporate raiding cracker. Why don't you get my 47% black ass a cup of coffee, and make yourself useful?"

IlGreven: I'm gonna give this ti Bill or any other guy who's already voting for Obama who's still gnashing their teeth over the debate, and wailing for all to see:

But haven't you heard?? A year of campaigning, a billion dollars in ads, a favorable electoral college map, an improving economy, still better fav/unfav ratings than Romney, and incredibly strong polling numbers in key states like Ohio is all undone by one shiatty debate! It's true! Unless Obama removes Romney's head and spine like Sub Zero in the next debate we're all dooooooomed!

It would be the only way I could be in the same room with Romney and not kill him, honestly.

bullwrinkle: So Obama took a "dive" as part of some strategy to draw Mitt in to.....what? Some how with all the criticism on both sides and Romney surge in the polls doesen't seems to be working out for him. Also a huge and unnecessary risk for him to take.

Hey, I didn't come up with the theory. :P I'm not completely sold on it, but as ICB and LordJiro have explained, it makes sense.

LordJiro: Remember, Obama plays the long game. Even if he screws up, he tends to find a way to use that. And you just know that, in some room somewhere, Romney, or some other high-profile Republican, is preparing to shove his foot into his mouth again, to remind America just how farked up the GOP is.

Help a million poor people once or ensure that the poor aren't ground up as Soylent Green vis a vis the Romney administration.

Oh he spent it on weed because he's black and weed makes you lazy. Maher is such a racist.

Despite eraser8's concern, I read a post by someone the other day who had a theory that Obama gave the Republicans a mulligan so that they'd have some false hope about Romney's chances, thus funneling more money into his campaign and draining it from the other races, which are more important. And, you know, now that I think about it, I get the impression that Obama was struggling to restrain himself during the debate. Perhaps this guy's theory is right.

shower_in_my_socks: badaboom: So much fun to watch you guys implode....

I wasn't going to ignore you because I want to see you here when Rmoney is giving his concession speech. But we all know you won't show your face when that happens, so buh bye now.

Wait, before you leave I need to give you some advice. Woolite works best for your little girl panties.

eraser8: whidbey: eraser8: whidbey: eraser8: I AM CONCERNED. Because I don't want that shiatbag Mitt Romney to win. It would be a disaster for the country. But, the president is farking things up for himself. Royally.

I'm really not getting this. Specific examples, please.

Wednesday, October 3, 2012.

So you really don't have any specific example of how "the President is farking things up for himself."
How surprising.

The whole debate was an example of the president's farking things up for himself.

"And at some point I think the American people have to ask themselves: Is the reason that Gov. Romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret, because they are too good?"

Yea, Obama was 100% crap all night...

Gyrfalcon: It's possible this is the real explanation for Obama's lackluster performance.

He was in Denver. Maybe he got some medicinal chocolate from a dispensary.

No Mr. Maher, Obama didn't do anything with the money you gave him because you didn't give him any money. Giving to a SuperPAC is not the same thing as giving to a candidate. I would think someone in your position would understand this.

shower_in_my_socks: The remaining debates will likely be a draw...Romney's bump will be temporary.

If the remaining debates are a draw, I would bet on a Romney presidency. Seriously.

As I wrote earlier, the president was being buoyed by the impression that he was the only adult running (and, for that matter, the only adult in Washington). But, Mr. Obama's miserable performance washed all that away. He was unprepared and looked like a scared schoolboy.

The president has to erase that impression or, I genuinely believe, he'll be a one-termer.

Did you, perhaps, mean per se?

Christ my eyes rolled so hard they actually hurt. Yes, you caught me. I did in fact mean to type per se.

0bama kept calm and pointed out Romney's lies when he could and made sure to speak slowly and not give any bad soundbites that can be used against him in the future. He knew what he was doing, and with a large lead you don't want to go full derp and come across as angry.
