I did that multiple times last night; even when Mitt was not calling him a liar directly!

3600 divided by 3.60 a gallon = 1000 gallons of gas = 19.23 gallons per week = 481 miles driving per week at average of 25 miles per gallon = 68 miles per day of driving = 34 miles to work and 34 miles back to work with no family driving added at all.

IOW, they won’t be able to buy anything extra with the money due to Obama driving the price of gas sky high.

And we’ve not considered the additional cost of electricity and other fuels for home heating and other things, so we’ll not deal with that, and that will balance out that the price increase was only $2 per gallon.

It was probably kindergarten where they sit on the floor sometimes as a matter of course. I wouldn’t be surprised for The Won to do something like that.

It was difficult to tell whether Romney was debating an empty suit or an empty chair.

Obama phoned it in.

Strangely, Obama’s debate performance was similar to Gingrich’s during the 2 Florida primary debates.

It was that Barack was revealed as a clueless dolt...

Obama seemed completely out of his element and more of an AA result.

I kept getting the impression that Obama was acting like someone who was debating the President [President Romney], rather than someone who IS the President.

Obama didn't seem to have much substance (facts) at his command. He, of course, doesn't have much of a record to run on.

Ironically, one of Obama's early statements was 'get away from the past and move on to the future.' That after almost 4 years of blaming Bush? Forward to what? Obama's last 3 budgets got ZERO votes. Joblessness? CNN had a random act of journalism and showed that, for the just over 4 million new jobs Obama claims, just over 4 million old jobs were lost, for a net difference of ONLY about 250,000 new jobs in the last 4 years.

Nuances and moments from Denver debate, Romney team can use

Obama's arrogance: "all the experts say this, say that..." We'll, it's quite convenient when your propagandists, donors and backers are YOUR chosen "experts."

Repeating a lie... till you believe it... Where in recent history did we see it again? Even Obama's fan, the liberal Daily Beast said: "Obama’s $4 trillion number was inaccurate."

I watched the debate via CSPAN on the TV and turned immediately to CNN after the debate.

It was entertaining to watching the leftist commentators in panic mode, but even they could not cover up the fact that Obama’s first debate was EPIC FAIL. Several of them did conclude that this debate was a game changer. Last week, according to the media, Romney was OUT. After last night, he was not only IN, but IN at the head of the race.

My supposition was that the kids sat on the floor at first, then got some extra chairs in there in about the first ten minutes and it was done.

Oh, and the ten year old books? She’s probably a math teacher, so who gives a damn?

I wouldn’t be surprised if Jim Lehrer quietly “retires” in the coming months. LOL!

If Leher does retire, maybe they should hire Rush Limbaugh for the next debate.

Time to bomb Libya I guess

Listen up, when it's time to bomb Libya, Val Jarrett will let you know. Anyway, it's Damascus. Meanwhile, TOTUS must, must I say, be cut a lot of slack. He's in quite the funk without his BFF, Reggie Love. When he's not out on the road campaigning amongst the faithful, he's holed up in the den watching ESPN ... ALONE. Just hanging out, waiting for Miss Val to come in with his instructions, rolling his own and ordering snacks for one. That can't be much fun. And what's the poor guy's alternative? TV with Michelle and the Mother-in-Law?

In regard to the debate, the Masshole faithfuls know better than to despair. Even though Barry wee-weed it up big time, they remember how Teddy looked so foolish, so helpless, and so inept during his debate with McCormack that the Massholes, particularly the females of the species, felt SORRY for the drunken puppy and voted him in on a tide of sympathy or mother-lust, or something.

I worry that the same could happen with Obama. In the meantime, could Barney The Bugger of Bayonne be prevailed upon to forward his dating service's little black book to Barry? There's a fellow who really needs a new BFF.

Yes, his syntax was remarkably a mirror image of the questions ... but that is an old debater's trick when one is lost! I also think that suit the Mombasa MF was wearing could have been wired. His head was down as if he were listening to a voice from his lapels. He simply cannot speak without the Sorosprompters right and left ... and he made no eye contact with Mitt, and not much with the camera or audience.

And he was fidgety ... the body language was bad ... looked as if he had to take a bad leak!

If that isn't the truth......since Obama took over, race relations have been set back decades. He's certainly not their friend.

I watched the debate on CNN. They ran a continuous graph which showed “undecided” voter emotions in Colorado (male+female) as the debate progressed. Women tracked much higher in support of Obama throughout. So, I was honestly shocked at the final polling which showed Romney running away with it. That graph was distracting and gave a viewer the idea that it was gonna be much closer. The best part of the night for me was watching MSNBC post-debate coverage. I got drunk on vodka it was so excellent.

While Romney admittedly bested a poor Obama, in terns of substance I didn’t come away with any confidence that Romney has the vision or guts to make the tough decisions that will be necessary to put America back on the rails. He’ll be in the George Bush/David Cameron mould, not Reagan/Thatcher. Or even worse, he’ll be a Brian Mulroney, the “Conservative” Prime Minister of Canada who maintained high deficits, while flooding our Supreme Court with “moderate” appointees. Mulroney came from a big business background as well.

I'm sure there were lots of people watching last night who went, "Who is Solyndra?" And hopefully they took to the interwebs and found out.

Moral of that story: all “rich” guys are not equally endowed with smarts.

To top it off, sKerry isn't even self-made rich, except for the lobbyist money he gets from Senate payoffs.

To: All

In a very good mood this morning because of Romney’s spectacular performance.

Romney won the debate both on facts/data/content and style/presentation. His victory was so dominant and overwhelming that even the media and Obama’s campaign can’t deny it. So what will Obama do? He will attempt to convince people that Romney won the debate only due to style/presentation. They will hit this hard for the next month in the hope that when people reflect on this debate as they decide to who to vote for, they will forget that not only did Romney destroy Obama on presentation but he also killed him on substance. “Obama just had a bad night”.

How can Romney combat this tactic? Pick out the most damning segments of the debate where Romney killed Obama on data/substance and turn them into ads that play over and over again in Ohio and Florida.

Romney was much better last night as it relates to getting rid of the smile/smirk when his opponent is speaking. He did look right at Obama much of the time and, contrary to what I thought before the debate, it worked out well for him.

Would still like to see him completely eliminate the half-smile when Obama is talking.

Barack Obama has been savaged over his performance in last night's presidential debate, with one commentator even suggesting that he was less effective than the hapless Jimmy Carter.

As Clint noted, the Empty Chair improved by codetoad:


It is past time to fire Barack and his empty chair and have both of them hit the road back to Chicago!
