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.

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.......

Obama math:

1 bad debate performance - 1 surging Rep opponent = 7.8% unemployment

You forgot "heads full of mush" in your description of Obama's adoring crowd. They took everybody's phone number and email address before they got in. I imagine they'll be burning up the wireless channels getting out the vote before November. They'll make sure that every one of those kids is registered at least twice.

While the new unemployment numbers are subject to much disputation, it appears as if the Administration has decided to approach the integrity of the LIBOR calclations.
And no, there is no truth to the rumor that Bernie Madoff has been put on a work release program in order to assist the government in calculating the unemployment numbers.

That those "heads full of mush" will also be bombarded to give a few more $5 and $10 dollar bills of Mommy and Daddy's money right up until Election day to support Obozo in his desperate bid to save the socialist republic from that EVIL capitalist.

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/329519/think-again-about-good-jobs-report-kevin-hassett

Today’s jobs report is a classic. The report, of course, reveals the results of two surveys, one of households, one of establishments. The professional economists and the press usually emphasize the establishment survey because it is viewed as less volatile. The establishment survey was terrible. The 114,000 number of jobs created on net in September is well below the average for this year (146,000) and the average for last year (153,000). This is wholly consistent with the story that the economy is decelerating sharply as we head into the fall.

The household survey, on the other hand, portrays a September that was booming, far more so than could possibly be true given the other indicators. According to it, the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8 percent, with total employment jumping by a whopping 873,000.

I told my husband we need to turn the racist label back on liberals:

Who thinks black children aren't capable of learning using the same methods as white children?

Who wants to keep high achieving and motivated black children locked into failing schools instead of giving them the chance to excel?

Who thinks a black teen isn't capable of getting into a college based on his grades?

Who thinks a black American can not possibly be hired unless "white men" step in?

Who dismisses the accomplishments of educated, successful black Americans if they don't vote democrat?

Who accepts that black democrats can speak perfect english while in their professional positions but turn into Southern Ghetto dwellers when they are in the midst of those they feel are incapable of understanding proper English?

It is 76 and partly cloudy, but there is a cool-and-gloomy front due sometime tomorrow-when the cool and clouds arrive, it is my intention to gather up some fruit, veggies, a book and water, head into the deep woods and spend a lot of time in my favorite secret places in silence. I will have a sidearm and my cell phone with me, but I don’t expect to use either one...

All the strident disputation
Among the rabid Obama crowd
Has very little of substance-
It is pretty much just loud

They seem to have developed
A kind of convince-me cult-
They see some made-up numbers
And don’t ask for a result

Don’t look now, koolaid drinkers
But you’re being scammed again-
Carter tried the “magic wand”, too
And it didn’t help you back then
