poot_rootbeer: Speaking of miles, how far are you planning to move those goalposts?

That Red Bull guy jumped off of a set of Repuglican goalposts, if that's any clue.

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.

I think you forgot to take the audio gap into account.

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.

That's why CNN called it a tie?

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.

She secretly communicated information to Obama via hand gestures an interpretive dance.

sprawl15: Dusk-You-n-Me: Romney ceded some of his time by directly asking Obama questions, a violation of debate rules.


Well, I-


Let me exp-


OK, the situation is more complicated than you're making it because bla bla bla.


The hilarious thing is, he didn't even learn his lesson after that. He tried the exact same thing again with the "Have you looked at your pension?!" bit. I don't even know what he was trying to accomplish there.

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.

As far as mistakes go, that's right up there with getting involved in a land war in Asia.

Dr.Mxyzptlk.: Obama speaks slower because standard English is not his first language.

I thought it was because he was lazy and shiftless.

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.

They consulted Twitter for updates on when the time changed.

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 attention

Oooo! 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....

Did they count the times that Mitt was yelling in the background "Governmet doesn't create jobs! Government doesn't create jobs!" and "He promised to fix immigration in his first year! He promised to fix immigration in his first year!" (or something like that) ?

tenpoundsofcheese: fta: HURP A DERP

Everything you say is a lie, and no one here likes you. Why bother even showing up? Desperation? Inferiority complex? Why even bother living?

tenpoundsofcheese: No one is criticizing Candy because it was a much closer debate, they criticized her because of her actions.

"That uppity lady there, saying they have 2 minutes to speak, stopping Romney and Obama from he-says-she-saysing for the whole debate, and trying to shut down crosstalk, who the hell does she think she is?"

Between the single moms and the binders, who knows what other gems Romney might have come up with in those three minutes?

Democrats all agreed Obama sucked the first debate. Even Obama admitted as much.

Romney loses and its the moderator's fault. Vast liberal conspiracy.

Their act is so old.

fta: CNN says: "Romney supporters are going after her on two points, no doubt because their man did not have as good a night as he had in Denver."

That is pathetic.
Romney did as well as he did in Denver. It was a consistent performance.
0bama did a heck of a lot better than he did in Denver.

Based on the debates, voters have seen two different versions of 0bama and one consistent Romney.

No one is criticizing Candy because it was a much closer debate, they criticized her because of her actions.
