"So, do you think I won, honey?"
Old liberals’s performances under today’s scrutiny and the rapid post evaluations on the internet sites often suck, and the world knows instantly, that they sucked big time without their fellow mediots covering for them.
Leher failed his marching orders. Or maybe barry just sucks and can’t defend the indefensible.
Love the “Princess Bride”.......as you wish. ;-)
I’m just waiting for the foreign policy debate. I want to hear what Obama has to say about two things: Fast and Furious and Benghazi.
That was understood by the MSM to be his main function.
That this old man just tried to moderate an honest and fair debate is viewed by the left as a treasonous betrayal.
Exactly right! The media & dems are in a hysterical panic stricken mode, because of 0dumb0's dismal, lackluster performance, and they are trying to shift the blame onto Jim Lehrer. In reality, Jim Lehrer tried to tilt the debate in favor of 0dumb0 and got called out by Romney on it (On the first topic 0dumb0 answered 3 times and Romney only twice. When Lehrer tried to shift to another topic, Romney hit back hard....."He answered first, I get to finish").
Otherwise, I think that Lehrer did a good job, which is to direct the debate to the next main topic, but otherwise let the candidates in essence debate each other. 0dumb0 just plain sucked, which is why the lefties are hysterical & deranged this morning.
I love listening to the meltdown by Chrissy (Tingle) Matthews, in fact all the leftie retards are in full meltdown & blame mode this morning. Love it!!!
I listened to the debate on the radio. Lehrer sounded a little irritated with Obama on more than one occassion.
Overall,he sounded a little irritated that the both of them were using up the allotted time.
He said someting at the end that they didn’t get to the “last pod”
Anyone know what the last queston was suppose to be?
Great summary & recap of Romney owning the debate!
Waaah, waaah, waaaaaah. Jim Lehrer didn’t defend Baby Barack against that nasty old Mitt Romney!
Jim Lehrer did fine. He even tried to help Obama focus in on the issues. Obama’s coke addiction is frying his brain and no one could have helped him last night.
I liked the format. It focused in on the candidates not the moderator. It went very well.
I am sure Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarret were upset. After all, they are the Co-Presidents of the USA. Obama likes to shoot his mouth off and pretend he is emperor of the world. He is too busy to be president.
I think if 0dumb0 thought he would get a little nookie from Wookie on their so-called anniversary, he’s got another thing coming after his debate debacle. It’s the spare bedroom or couch for him. Not that he’s really complaining. Who would want to sleep with or wake up with godzilla? She must be a fright to behold in the morning, since she is such a hideous sight during the rest of the day!
Bingo. That's what this whole thing is about.
Lehrer did fair, on the other hand Bush was an utter disaster.
LMAO ... Mr. Hawk, is that you?
I’m now watching the debate for the first time. Effin’ Lehrer was clearly (and predictably) trying to coach the Marxist revolutionary as much as he thought he could get away with.
If I NEVER see Lehrer The Shill “moderate” another bipartisan debate, it will be too soon.
It’s Lehrer’s fault Obama got FOUR minutes more than Romney.
Without the teleprompter, prepared notes and having to face an opponent, Obama was clearly not able to hold up.
The man revealed he's out of his league, which was not only depicted in his responses, but his demeanor and body language etc.
This was my favorite format for a debate. The moderator should just ask the question and then stay out of it. I am sick of the media thinking they are the star of the debate. it’s about the candidates!!! David Gregory, are you listening?
Rush played a montage of Lehrer’s helpful hints & propping up of Obamagube. It was priceless!
The liberals are just mad that Obama didn't perform well in this format. Obama needs the structure of an Igo Ugo debate to contain him and his opponent.
The next debate is a townhall format, which I suppose means questions from the audience by Democrat stooges posing as undecided voters?
One thing is for sure, at this years press correspondence dinner Jim Lerher will get a milk crate to sit at the back door.
Jim Lerher was suppose to be asking questions with skewed liberal promises, thats the mainstream medias oath. He may well be excommunicated, if not virtually burned at the stake.
Jim ole boy, its time to start spending your days at the horse track. No invite to Dan Rathers house. No lifetime acheivement award.
The good news, you can leave with your pride!
In my words, Romney was happy that Obama kept taking more rope to keep tying his own hands behind his back.
The commie ‘RATS need to lighten up on Lehrer. Nobody could have saved Barry’s ass last night. Just because Lehrer refuse to try is no reason to beat him up.
He let Obama speak for 5 minutes longer than Romney.
The altitude was against him, the stars were obviously aligned against him, the falling level of the oceans was against him, the questions were stacked against him, and even the conservative icon Jim Lehrer was against him - if he weren't Allah's gift to the universe, he would have done even worse.
It would have gone better for Obama if Lehrer had not let him talk at all...
