Why is the debate so important? We already know that the media will say that Obama won the debate, easily. And, since so few people actually will watch the debate, it is a slam dunk for Obama that he has already won the debate...just ask ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC and MSNBC.

Don’t let them see you sweat. Don’t have a 5 o’clock beard shadow. Don’t keep looking at your watch.

You're absolutely right.

I can see it now...



Romney: "The economy is terrible. The deficit is too big."
Obama: "I've been to all 57 er... states including OIHO and well, the film-makers acted stupidly - Allah's prophet must not be insulted, um... what's an economy?"

NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, BBC, REUTERS, NY TIMES... etc:

"ROMNEY GAFFE!"

True. Whatever Romney said will be declared a GAFFE. But again, the press keeps overplaying their hand. They immediately pounced on Romney’s comments on the Cairo apology as a GAFFE, but the American public doesn’t see it that way.

Also, I don’t think Zero has EVER had a challenging debate in his life. He has never had to answer tough questions, and if Romney treats Zero the way he did Gingrich in the debates, I think Zero is going to blow up or be obviously rattled. Zero is very thin-skinned. (oops — that makes me a racist for saying ‘thin-skinned’)

Yup. Plus the questions will be loaded against Romney. He can't possibly 'win'. Best we can hope for is to hold his own. Also while all the above are going to come up with 'gaffes' for their headlines for the following few weeks, hopefully there won't be anything that will get a lot of traction.

OK, I did not see one item about Obama thwarting the Constitution's orders for the President.

How about: "I believe in our Constitution. This means that I will honor my oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. I will honor the Constitution's intent by charging the Legislature with proposing laws, instead of avoiding the constitutional process by using executive orders. As the Constitution orders the President to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed," I will hold the Department of Justice responsible for enforcing the law, not changing it. I will be a president who honors the Constitution, the liberty it gives us, and the spirit of independence that fostered this great nation of ours."

That's what I want to hear in the debate from Mr. Romney.

First of all, in general, the concept that these debates are so important is stupid. I understand why a POTUS needs to be a good experienced negotiator (Which of course Bozo is not!) to be able to deal with Congress, foreign leaders etc.
However, why is it important for a candidate to win these debates when they never, ever debate anyone in this type of TV forum as part of the POTUS job description? We are electing a leader and chief executive, not a debate champion. If that is the case than just run the top college debater in the US and call it a day! I know that in the past the debates were an opportunity to see the candidates on the same stage, face to face, but in this age of 24/7 news coverage and social media there is so much information available about the candidates that the debates have become irrelevant.

Second, if your school football team was going to play your blood rival would you agree to allow the referees to all be people who you know are absolute supporters of your rival? Of course you wouldn’t. That would be stupid! Of course that is exactly what the RNC, and R&R, are doing by allowing their enemies, and I don’t use that word lightly, in the media to moderate these debates.

This is exactly why I would advise R&R to tell the State Run Media that they are not showing up to their Obama butt-kissing, dog and pony show, unless Mark Levin and/or Rush are also moderators. I don’t care if they don’t like it, they are our enemy. It would be a great opportunity to let the voting public know that they are not putting up with this crap anymore and expose the SRM for what the are. (Tass and Pravda rolled into one!) I don’t care if they have to broadcast 2 hours of Obama playing with himself. Do not let them set the agenda and frame these debates. They attempt, and succeed, at damaging our candidates every day. It is insanity to cowtow to them and let them damage our candidates to their faces! This is all a big fing set up!! Obama will have all the questions in advance! Tell the SRM to add conservative moderators, or to go pound sand!! This media bullshit needs to end!!
