The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!. They are now arguably that very establishment that praised them and they hold themselves and their ideological issue in even higher regard.

Their cadre who are employees of the MSM are ordered to ATTACK! ATTACK! ATTACK!

MSM "fact checkers" are asked to do more to protect The One, they must become more open as flak chuckers.

Now here comes a blizzard of pseudo fact checking.

AP tried it this morning and they were mostly neutral (surprisingly). I expect to see a shift soon.

The problem still isn't what Romney said, it is how obummer acted and portrayed himself. He was almost literally Eastwood's empty chair.

Not just that, but the MSM has what? A 9% approval rating?

Who the heck really cares about “fact checking)? Or actually believes it?

Heh, Axelrod has been all over the place today trying to undo the damage that President Zero did to himself. Don’t think that it’s going to work this time.

The killer last night was Obama “You might want to move on to the next topic Jim.”

Every debate has moments that resonate in voters minds. That one is going to stick. Obama looking to the supposed ref to rescue him. The common thread in most voters comments to pollsters is “we want a leader who will show us how to get out of this mess”

Romney showed he is a leader last night while Obama showed he is not.

The Obama camp has nothing but failure to offer the voters so they are hoping to undercut Romney's sterling performance in the first debate by calling him a liar. Hardly original. They also know full well that MSNBC and 98% of the media are leftists who support Obama and his socialist agenda for bringing Americans to our collective knees all the while pretending to be 'fighting for the Middle Class'. Yeah, right.

Sadly, the leftmedia will be only too happy to attack Romney any way possible, most likely with lies. I fully expect some woman who was once a Bain employee to suddenly appear to accuse Romney of sexual harassment. Hey, it worked perfectly with Herman Cain didn't it? It will be a lie, a 'he said, she said' deal but the accusation will kill Romney's chances to defeat Obama by distracting the voters and allowing Obama to slip by with just enough electoral votes to win - and finish us off.

Of course I could be wrong (and hope and pray that I am).

In other words. The LEFTISTS need more time and help in thinking up LIES to counter the TRUTH that so devastated obama. ROMNEY wiped the floor with obama by exposing this fraud to the american people cutting right through the LIPSTICK ON A PIG portrayal by the MSM of obama. There will be no recovery for obama after this shallacking by Romney.

And they will do it.

Yes, they will. However, it will be much harder with reminders like this to let people believe their own eyes rather than the state-run media propaganda.

Yeah, that'll work.

Gallup said that distrust of the media hit an all-time high this year, "with 60% saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly."

Considering that televising a debate is in theory a partisan neutral event; it is amazing that FOX news and Entertainment still stomped NBC and MSNBC combined.

So the public is leery of the left dominated media when all presenters should be equal.

They can try a Bimbo eruption but it won’t have a chance of success against Romney.

Cain folded like a cheap tent after trying to lie his way out of his problem. But he should have never been in the race in the first place, all he could do is take votes from a conservative with a chance to win the nomination.

What kind of ego thinks you can become president without having won a major war or an elected political office? The same kind of ego which believes it can have dalliances without consequence.

You are right, there will be no recovery by The Disaster. It will only get worse from here. I mean, after all, the baton is being passed to BiteMe. This should produce riotous quotes. He has a hard time even remembering which side he is on.

By the last debate the RATs would be advised just to put up The Empty Chair.

The re-education program for the media is being rolled out...how dare they even insinuate that Dear Leader lost the debate? No matter how badly the O does in the next debates, the media WILL say that O made a miraculous recovery, turned around the illusion of a narrow loss in the first debate, and creamed Romney in all aspects, style, substance, dress, the shine on his shoes and the smell of his armpits.

The problem with fact checkers is the perception:

That they are right

That they know what they are talking about

That they are the last and final authority,

Who really cares what they say? People who just read headlines and people who are too lazy or stupid to think for themselves.

That is why obummer is not 20 points down in the polls by now.

-—The killer last night was Obama “You might want to move on to the next topic Jim.” —

I noticed that one too. He was like a child on the playground almost pleading for help as someone was beating him in armwrestling.

Romney was totally owning him at that point and Odumbo knew it. Romney was being the Alpha Male and Obutthole was so effeminate. A total putz.

And note at the end, when Romney was taking more than his share of allotted time to school Obama, Obama kept looking at feeble PBS Liberal Lehrer with this pleading puppydog look “help me!”

Priceless! One of history’s best debates.

David Axelrod asks the media for help taking down Mitt Romney.

Since the media is already totally in the tank for Obama, and since they've already been waging all out war against Romney, the only thing left to do would be to borrow the Iranian nuke and turn Romney into a glowplug.

The only thing left is the truly sinister. That already spin, misrepresent and refuse to report news.

Axelrod! Every time I accidentally see that toad on the screen, he reminds me of Dabney Coleman in “9 to 5”. And he plays that same role in the White House. He’s where you start your housecleaning Nov. 7.

why on earth would a Jew wish to dress like a butched up Adolf Hitler Yehuda?

it would be like wardaddy here dressing up like William Tecumseh Sherman

and that ain't never gonna happen

Axlerod* has a sharp brain but comes off as a bitter resentful sort

and he grew up privileged

so did all the college radicals too..he is pretty much their blueprint

amazing these folks are now running things

too bad Abbie Hoffman who I confess I actually found funny and self deprecating (albeit pathetic as father time threw him under the bus) back in the day a long time ago didn't get to live to see these ideologues really take the stage to a level beyond just antics and street theater...and just how destructive their ideas are when implemented

fortunately after last night it looks ever more certain their days are numbered

depression and suicide runs in his immediate family

Ann Barnhardt thinks the inner circle, seeing how badly Obama did in the debate, might now think he can serve a higher purpose as a martyr to the cause.

I don’t think the inner circle has the skills or know-how to arrange such. If anything truly epochal happens in the USA it will have to be behind the smokescreen of a major ME war and/or financial collapse.

RE: I don’t think the inner circle has the skills or know-how to arrange [seizing total control using a method of their choosing].

That's a good point. I recall the 1972 election. The media buzz had these crazies winning it all. In those days w/o modern talk radio and the Internet and when "William F. Buckely's Firing Line one hour a week on PBS 'was all the fairness conservatives needed'" we were the silenced generation; but we showed 'em.

Election 1972 did not work out as McGovern, the campus radicals (spoiled brats IMO), and the liberal media figured. (Darn.. look! Watergate!)
