Here is the schedule for disputations so you can set your DVRs and be ready to record some must-see TV.

A+++ I am looking forward to it.

Was out walking last night when I ran in to one of me Dem neighbors (black). We got into the debate and he readily admitted Obama lost. He is not ready to concede the election. He thinks if we sit down to talk he can convince me to vote Obama. I laughed in his face at that thought. He mentioned the slow down of jobs losses....I mentioned the Lockheed Martin fiasco with defense contractors. He didn’t believe it was true. Delusional.

Morning! Still a fog outside my door, with rain coming...but I have had a huge smile since the early minutes of the debate Wednesday night.

Obozo and Plugs continue their gyrations, machinations at disputations across America and for the first time we've gotten to see what Obozo "The Sore Loser" looks like in a disputation in front of a crowd at the University of Wisconsin at Madison which is also know among my friends as the Kremlin of the Midwest.......

I wonder how many disputations there will be over this unemployment statistic. Rate magically falls below 8%. Rush said it would, months ago.

I still see my unemployed neighbors sitting at home. Saw an article earlier today that said if they count all those that “dropped out” of the job market due to no jobs....it would be over 10%. A+++

NeoCaveman has picked the news of the day. Disputation will abound because it looks phony as heck! There weren’t enough jobs added to cause the unemployment rate to fall so far, so fast. I expect this number to be revised, and it’s sure to go up again. Ooooops! Sorry!

NO not debating.....it was a “controversial discussion” in which the president attempted to re-argue the debate from Wednesday, sans Romney, in front of a crowd at a university full of future communist party members at the Kremlin of the Midwest.... also know as Madison, Wisconsin.

I went from accepting Romney to supporting him for the presidency. Big leap for me.

oh........ I heard about that. With a teleprompter he really sounds confident. Too bad his actual performance was such a dismal failure.

Well, I have always been enthusiasically for ABO....but after Wednesday I too have become a Romney fan.

I really liked what I saw and heard and he is even running his campaign schedule as if he's taking over 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. already.......

Nope. Neo must have been copying off of me because my husband and I were already engaged in a disputation over breakfast concerning that news when I read Neo’s post..
