The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues. Candidates each will have two minutes to respond, and an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate a discussion.
The town meeting participants will be undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization.
participants will be undecided voters
These are the people whose free cell phone requests haven’t been appproved yet or whose status is pending.
The administration has hired more than 10,000 new government employees to speed up the approval process for the millions of requests./s
Candy is a close pal of Axelrods !
Its a audience of potted plants illegals, gay marriage, Muslim victims .
A complete instant reply of the Anderson Cooper GOP primary town hall set up with average people who turned out to be previous
guests on CNN !!! Its a ambush
Can someone explain the title of this thread? It doesn’t match the title at the link, and I can’t figure out who is suing whom for what?
You’re hired! LOL.
I actually was just thinking the exact same thing. Gather a geoup of people Romney doesn’t know (like state level staffers or their spouses/families) and make them ask a bunch of liberal-tinted questions. I’m sure Romney is prepared for rational questions. He needs to be prepared for the irrational ones.
The DOJ is looking into the Gallup business practices and potential overcharging the govt for services back in 2009.
Apparently, an Obama campaign staffer went there after 2008 and got a job and he supposedly went to the DOJ and said they were doing some creative accounting, back in 2009/2010. The “investigation” started back then.
Fast forward to this summer. The Gallup company released a few polls that had Romney leading or close. They got a call from Axlerod about their “methodology and sampling”, then they got a subpoena from the DOJ for internal documents and were notified of an investigation. They then released a poll with Obama in the lead.
Now they’re in charge of finding “undecided” voters for the second debate that will be asking the questions of both Obama and Romney. How do you think that will turn out?
Calling this format a "debate" is completely false. It's more like an "I can pander better than you" format.
Thank you for the explanation. That makes sense, unlike the previous headline which I see the mods have changed now.
You would think the Heritage Foundation, could at least include the date, for us in âFly over Countryâ...Sheeeesh
It is October 16 (a Tuesday)!
Next week (the 11th) is the VP debate.
Mostly they are people who want to be BEGGED, wined and dined, all the while JUST waiting for you to say something by which they can get angry.
That is the undecided, feely little people.
They're designed to make the Democrat look good. Obama should "win" this one; the format benefits him.
Somehow I ended up on a left wing mailing list of Move On. This is an email re how the left wing progressives feel about the debate:
Dear MoveOn member,
That was infuriating.
During last night’s presidential debate, Mitt Romney smirked his way through dozens of mischaracterizations, distortions, and outright lies. The moderator, Jim Lehrer, never cut him off. And now the mainstream media is saying that Mitt won the debate.
We can’t let Romney “win” the debate on a boatload of lies.
He lied about his tax plan, his deficit plan, and Medicare. He lied about what “Obamacare” would do. He lied, baldly and convincingly, about Obama’s entire presidency.1
We need to move quickly to set the record straight. Our online team worked overnight preparing a media blitzincluding online ads targeted at swing-state voterscorrecting the worst lies in an easy-to-share format.
Chip in $5 to get the truth outcountering Mitt’s lies.
If we don’t fight back now with the truth, some of those lies will stick, and Romney could pull ahead.
Already, Romney and his Super PAC friends have spent millions on blatantly false ads attacking President Obama for gutting work requirements for welfare and cutting $700 million from Medicare.
Last night was more of the same.
And research shows that when lies get repeated enough times people will believe themno matter how outlandish they might seem. The only way to keep Romney honest is to make sure the facts get corrected on the spot.
We’re now in the moment when millions of undecided voters who don’t usually pay attention to politics start to focus.
This is it. This is what MoveOn’s massive online network is for. Let’s use it.
Please chip in $5.
Thanks for all you do.
Angie, Mark, Lenore, Tate, and the rest of the team

I would call anyone who is undecided at this point in the election Rip. They obviously have just awakened from a long sleep of the last 4 years!
