As many consider him to be the smartest man ever to walk the earth, there sure is a lot he doesn’t know.

Well, the comatose Press “Corpse” is certainly not going to point out any gaffes, unless it’s the ones they perceive in Romney’s speeches.

Don’t you mean gaffe?

Definition of GAFFE. 1: a social or diplomatic blunder . 2: a noticeable mistake .

“Medicare is the main cause of the deficits” - Obama

This is definitely a gaffe from a Dem perspective. Did he pick this up reading the Heritage Foundation blog?

No, gaff. A metal hook for handling large fish.

If Obama said it, the word from here on out is “aircrafts.” PERIOD and DEAL WITH IT.

They will only need them for the next 4 months.

If SNL and these other comedy shows had any guts they would. Last night was pure comedy gold that can last them years. Obama showed himself to be the brain dead moron we ALL know he is. The media created him, now they have to make excuses for him instead of admit they helped put an idiot in the white house

Obama's first solution to the economy problem was to hire 100,000 new math and science teachers. Huh?

When he was talking about cutting programs to save money, he mentioned how they had cut educational programs that weren't producing results. That was after he'd already promoted spending more money on hiring teachers.

He actually contradicted himself several times last night. I wish I could remember them. I tried to post my comments on FR last night, but like a lot of other folks, we kept getting the "failed to open" page, and mine specifically said that FR's servers weren't responding. There were only 1,621 posts on the main live debate thread. That's not that many for a presidential debate, and I'm wondering how bad it will be for the V.P debate next week, and on into election night.

OBAMA SAYING "AIRCRAFTS"

I noticed it, but I chalked it up either to him playing to his constituency, or to his ivy league(?) education - maybe they didn't teach him the finer points of the English language since he was a "foreign student".

Toward the end, Obama was going down his list of “what's fair”, and when he got to “everybody gets their fair share” he tried to interrupt himself to cover it up. Asking Jim Lehrer if they could go the next question was priceless!

Not a gaffe, its what he truly believes.

He was just telling Lehrer "You're not covering my backside quick enough, get with it!".

Here’s a YouTube video that condenses his major gaffes into a nice one-minute recreation:

I think you're talking about Obama's closing remarks.

"All those things are designed to make sure that the American people, their genius, their grit, their determination, is -- is channeled and -- and they have an opportunity to succeed. And everybody's getting a fair shot. And everybody's getting a fair share," Obama said, before quickly correcting himself and adding.

"Everybody's doing a fair share, and everybody's playing by the same rules"

Seems to me like the liberals are jumping ship on this guy, I was worried for a few weeks. But after last nights debate, Obama has no chance. He knows it, he’s beaten. All they have on Romney now is “ He’s not a nice guy, he interrupted Jim and Obama during the debates.” What a joke.

The best definition of "gaffe" I believe is Charles Krauthammer's (although I don't know if he coined it).

Goes something like this:

gaffe: A politician's inadvertent statement of what he really believes.

I liked Romney's responce to that the best: 'If you hadn't wasted $900 billion dollars on Celindra and other green energy companies that went bankrupt, and were in bed with you, we would have money for one million new teachers'.

I just hope that the undecideds and the independent voters who said that Romney won the debate will end up voting for him, that is the key..will the people who say that Romney clearly won(Which he did) end up voting for him, if they do it will be a landslide victory for Romney.
The 2nd Debate about foreign policy won’t matter much since right now the economy is the main issue with people, but Romney should clean Obama’s clock since Obama is covering up what happened in Libya..even if the next debate the moderator allows Obama to talk, GOOD let him talk, the more Obama talks the more he makes himself look like a damn fool

They're now adding the claim that Romney only won "on lies."

As many of us have observed before, Leftists are prone to engage in projection.

And of course the "Romney lies" meme is patently ironic in view of the exposure of the Obama/Axelrod/Clinton culture of lies ... as revealed by the Libya debacle.

I liked Romney’s response on that too, especially when he pointed out that Obama was going after the lousy 2.8 billion in tax exemptions by gas companies, despite the fact that Obama had approved over $90 billion is tax exemptions to green companies...most of which had gone belly-up. What was it, 20+ years of exemptions to green companies compared to those the oil companies get in one year? Romney made a lot of good points last night, and I couldn’t believe that afterwards, Brit Hume claimed Romney made no memorable comments during the debate. Makes me wonder if he watched the same debate we did.

Gaff: A stick with a hook, or a barbed spear, for landing large fish.

Romney had the “gaff”, Obama provided the “gaffes.”

When Obama said, “thank you for having me here tonight” when what he really meant to say was, “can’t we just skip all this nonsense and declare me reelected?”
