DaCaptain19: I really don't adhere to either candidates' philosophies.

However.

The U.S. just had the worst four years of it's young life. And I blame the guy in charge.

If the next 4 years are the same or worse, and Romney is in charge? F*ck him as well.


You failed history, right? And were asleep for 2000-2008?

Is it a town hall filled with former Bane employees?

That would be fun.

Are you serious? Are you sure you don't mean YOUR life?

A Dark Evil Omen: Cletus C.: Good luck tonight, farklibs. Remember, if it's pretty much even or mostly meh "Obama kicked ass!"

No, if it's anything other than Romney running out of there screaming it's at least a tie if not a clear victory for Romney. That's the "liberal media" narrative, right?


Too soon.

AkaDad: Romney profited from disposing aborted fetuses. Anyone who considers themselves pro-life will burn in hell if they vote for Romney.

Just sayin'


It's a good think I'm an agnostic Republican. Go Mitt!!

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY!?



The worst 4 years EVER? Worse than the previous eight years? Worse than 1929-1933? Worse than 1861-1865?

Nah, I think we've seen enough of the right-wing media to know how this plays out already.

I think the odds that Romney wins a debate twice in a row are as likely as an earthquake hitting Boston tonight.

And an earthquake just hit Maine...

There is less than a month until election day when the people will decide

who will be the next President of the United States. The person elected will be the president of all Americans, not just the Democrats or the Republicans. It's time that we all come together, Democrats and Republicans alike, in a bi-partisan effort for America.

If you will support Mitt Romney, please drive with your headlights ON during the day. If you support Barack Obama, please drive with your headlights OFF at night.

Together, we can make it happen.

Thank you!

Are you really so amazingly ignorant that you've never heard of little things like the Civil War? The Great Depression? Do any of those ring a bell at all for you?

A spokesman for the Romney campaign has already announced Romney "will never tell a lie."


You're kidding, right?

Ok guys, let's come out fighting clean.

-No half-truths, rhetoric, horrible stories of local voters, or hypocrisy.

-When discussing numbers, you have to show your work.

-Avoid foreign policy unless it involves the troops.

-The size of the US flag button on your lapel is directly related to your penis size.

-Additional points rewarded exponentially for how many times you can repeat yourself.

You suffer from PE as well, right?


sorry. when your mom does that special thing i can't stop myself. I try to think about baseball though.

besides, as a lifelong registered republican, I can dog on the ignorant mofos that shanghai-d the party of progress and common sense all day and night with big old grin.

I once dated a girl who went to Hofstra. If this #debate has anything in common with her, it's gonna be crazy. And it will steal my boots.

DubyaHater: steamingpile: Ahhhh Fark where a lie is only uttered by one side, the other tells partial truths and were only blocked by the other side!!!!

I remember when Fark used to see through political bullshiat no matter what side uttered it, now its one side is puppy dogs and truth balloons while the others are crocodiles and lie sludge to toss on people.

Your handle suits you.

Uranus Is Huge!: Has anyone else noticed that numbers in one's Fark handle (Weaver95 excepted) and/or a handle that could be the Farker's actual name are very strong indicators of a conservative poster?


Nope, never noticed such a thing. Go get'em Mittens.

Liberals still going with the lie angle after Biden? Voted against both wars? No idea there was a request for security? Seeking troops in 2013 and beyond in Afghanistan? Biden did nothing but lie.
