I noticed the same thing - at least among the conservatives I know!

It was either the debate results or the butt chugging fad has really caught on.

Absolutely! Whole office was smiling today. It was like a breath of fresh air among the smog. Dare I say, it felt like real bright ray of sun.

Tho I will fight in the shade, if I have to.

I was talking to my sister about this today. People were definitely happier today. Personally, I think if we have President-elect Romney, we’ll all have happier holidays and I think the shoppers may even come out of the woodwork for Christmas.

Hope for Change! That’s what I’m sayin’.

It wasn’t the debate, it was the party. Where were you? Didn’t you get the invite?

Someone put empty chairs on a couple of corners in Wichita, that I saw.

It made me laugh so hard!

I’ve been laughing all day about Romney’s, “I don’t know what you’re talking about” line.

I know I'M much happier today!

I feel like the dark cloud hovering over us for the past four years is being peeled off. Praying it is, anyways.

Driving around with my Romney bumper sticker, I got lots of smiles...more so than previously.

Friends have emailed all day asking if I saw last nights debate and how great Mitt did.

Couldn’t wipe the smile off of my face today :-)
I was very worried that Romney wouldn’t do well but he proved me wrong and I was happy to eat crow. Now if only those same voters who say that Romney won will actually vote for him this will be a landslide election

Conservatives are happy that America might still have a shot at survival.

Liberals understand that they have misbehaved, and are secretly happy at the prospect of an adult being put back in charge.

I am happy people saw the real Obama.

It doesn’t change the fact I am still voting AGAINST Obama, to get his gay, marxist, muslim ass out of the presidency. That’s all this election is about, unfortunately.

Could be completely unrelated but we experienced a 50% uptick in quote requests for low voltage work from retail stores today...

It’s the holiday season. they NEVER do ANYTHING with their store floor plan until the new year. But many want asap work. One is a major electronics store that closed a bunch of stores recently. They are expanding and remodeling now.

I am sitting in one of those stores right now doing an overnight upgrade.

I think change is in the air and I like it!

It’s like being at a wake out here in Montgomery County Maryland.
I’m saying a prayer that my neighbors stay home because I would so love to see Dan Bongino in the Senate!!!!

Obama said: "And part of the way to do it is to not give tax breaks to companies that are shipping jobs overseas. Right now you can actually take a deduction for moving a plant overseas. I think most Americans would say that doesn't make sense. And all that raises revenue."

Romney replied: "The second topic, which is you said you get a deduction for getting a plant overseas. Look, I've been in business for 25 years. I have no idea what you're talking about. I maybe need to get a new accountant."

Romney's exact quote.

The second topic, which is you said you get a deduction for getting a plant overseas. Look, I've been in business for 25 years. I have no idea what you're talking about. I maybe need to get a new accountant.

People were definitely talking about it. Went in for a pedicure which is not typically a place where politics are discussed but today, the other customers were all smiles
and talking about how great Romney did.

3 customers were in town for a wedding (they’re from Virginia Beach)and can’t wait to cast their votes against Odumbo. All the others were locals and voting Romney as well.

Granted, El Paso county is pretty conservative so it’s common to hear conservatives and Republicans talking out loud about their political preferences.

The newly naturalized citizens who own the shop can’t wait to cast their first vote in US elections for the candidate who is more friendly to small business owners.

I unfriended a few libs I should have years ago on facebook. Both where crying in their government provided beer about how bad the guy who has been giving them “benefits” since they “lost” their jobs to Bush. (they where laid off after the election but before Obama moved in to the white hut)

I said “quit your bit*hing and get a job!” of course they didn’t like that and went off on me about how rude I am. I don’t think either has spent 2 minutes looking at a job board or applying for a job.

So I blocked/unfriended them.

Thanks!

The best line other - than from Mitt - was from Dennis Miller.

“I wonder if getting your ass kicked is covered under Obamacare.”

Well I know I am. I was really nervous all day yesterday that Romney would totally blow it. I didn’t watch it because I don’t have TV and couldn’t get on the internet. I couldn’t get on here until about 10:00 last night and when I saw that the liberals were saying he lost I knew it must have been really bad for Obama. A huge weight lifted off of me and I relaxed for the first time in a while. Haven’t felt this good since election night 2010.

I got this in an email today:

The best part of the debate for me personally? Dennis Miller’s tweets:

“Romney keeps this up Obama’s gonna vote for him.”

“The one thing you can say for sure about Obamacare is that it will lead to Obamacaid.”

“Romney should ask Obama if in the name of fairness he’d be willing to give him, Romney, one of his two minutes.”

“Romney brings up Romneycare. Sweet! Perry Mason like genius!”

“Romney is stomping him like a narc at a biker rally.”

“The night janitor at Big Ben doesn’t clean a clock as well as Romney does.”

“Obama keeps looking down at his belt buckle teleprompter.” <— haha!

“Arthur Conan Doyle’s Lestrade had more of a clue than Obama.”

“Obama is being owned, refinanced and owned again!”

And, my favorite:

“Obama better hope a Kicked Ass is covered under Obamacare.”

Obama came off worse last night… than he did in his debate against Clint Eastwood’

I called out a FB friend last night. I was pretty rude. He ended up calling me today (while I was trying to sleep as I work midnights) and was like, WTF? I said “my country is in shambles because of the person you champion. I know I didn’t vote for him, so the blame rests with you and your MSNBC types..” He sputtered something about Bush which I heard as I was hanging up..

My sister rarely votes but said she was going to but was “undecided”. She usually wants to make my head explode! I left my cell in my purse last night but this morning when I checked it the first message, from last night, was “Wow! I'm definitely voting for Romney after that debate!” and my 20 year old niece “Aunt (me) you're right Mitt Romney is the man! " That made my day. If you can actually get these two to text about politics AND watch a debate, you know times are tough and Obama’s going down!

And I was VERY happy today!< Oh, one more thing, husband who is union by force said the parking lot where he works has cars in it every morning with Romney stickers at least 3-1.
