Hi Windy!

Sorry. I can’t do it. He wants, accepts and pushes for too many of the things I am totally against. I wish him luck and hope he governs at least as conservative as GB1 and 2, but I have no faith based on his record.

He did great tonight. But the proof is in the pudding, not in debate prepped/focus grouped words.

I don’t want to turn this into a flame war so I’ll just shut up now and congratulate him and his supporters on their victory.

Obama was a deer in the headlights tonight.

I've encountered many deer on the highways late at night. Deer actually look *into* the headlights. Tonight Obama was always just looking down. That is, when he wasn't looking to Lehrer to cut off Romney and bail out his ass!

Just hearing them say Hussein came across as having just to rely on being the prez...and just *showing up* was a big mistake.

Let’s hope the undecideds come flooding to the Right camp.

The momentum is in Romney’s favor.

"LSDNBC BS spin: Obama was dignified tonight."

Yeah, he left his Malcolm X impersonation at the White Hut.*

I just checked over at DUh not alot of happy campers over there.

You could tell without reading many posts by looking at a thread title called "Anyone can win a debate when they are allowed to lie repeatedly."

Saw Romney last week during his visit to PA at the Valley Forge Military Academy. He was not my first or second choice, but as the candidate, I feel obligated to support him. I wanted to see the turnout and hear his talk.
I was shocked by the high turnout and very pleasantly surprised by Romney's stump speech. He was holding true to conservative values and he pulled no punches. The crowd cheered him on to attack in his campaign. I'm becoming a fan. He has been leaning right more and more. Perhaps the reality of the world today will ground him in conservative values.

Hey, can’t read all the postings so please forgive if this has been discussed...
Did the commercial on abortion and Obummer’s pro-infanticide position where a young lady who survived a botched abortion speaks actually air?
Really hope that happened...
Can’t imagine even pro-abortion people not being moved by the ad...
Anyone see it?

This is the first election in Obama’s career where he’s faced real competition.

Thanks for the clarification on the CBS poll numbers.

Romney wins by a margin of over 2-1 over undecideds for tonight’s debate.

That’s HUGE!

Expect to see Romney pull ahead in the polls, skewed or otherwise.

They will shift. Economy was Bambi’s best chance, (go from there if you will). The fact that foreign policy is next is a hard defensive road. The idiot needed all those csars for a reason. He is nowhere prepared to put people in place nor defend that action.

The liberal puppet is seeing that big ass bus for the first time.

Like I told someone else on this thread, don’t misread what I posted. Romney being the slow socialist will be getting my vote as long as he doesn’t fall of the stage and break his neck. No matter what happens, Obama the fast socialist will not get my vote. I also said that Romney beat Obama viciously and I liked that. So kindly go blow smoke elsewhere.

Barry did look like a little boy getting a scolding from his Dad, for mischief done while his parents were away.

Loved it when Mitt said that he has raised five boys and there are times they repeat lies hoping he would eventually believe it.

Obama looked tired, disheveled and out of sorts. Given in admitted “enthusiastic drug use” in the past; you have to wonder if he’s fallen off the wagon and is using again?

FY 2007 last Bush and GOP Congress. 2011 Last Obama and a Democrat Congress

If Obama is reelected by 2016 we will be so far over the fiscal cliff there will be no climbing back

Obama added planks favoring Gay Marriage and taxpayer funded abortion on demand up to birth to the 2012 Democrat Party platform.

By contrast the 2012 GOP platform is the most Conservative one in their history.

No matter how much you hate Romney, no one with a brain would refuse to see the stark difference between Romney and Obama on social issues.

With Romney Social Conservatives have a seat at the table, Obama will actively promote everything Soc Cons are against.

By 2016 everything Soc Cons claim to be so passionate about will be legislated. As Roe V Wade should of taught Soc Cons, once something is legislated it become almost impossible to undo.

Once 2016 rolls around the Judiciary will be so packed with Obamabots anything Soc Cons DID manage to legislate would simply be undone by Judicial Fiat.

If Obama is reelected there will be nothing left to win.

After another 4 year term of Obama the USA will be a European style 1 party state with a state directed media, that will allow just enough political window dressing from a "loyal opposition" to keep their peon classes passive Post Reply | Private Reply | To 27 | View Replies

Andrew Sullivan just called Obama a “staggering failure”

Obama's performance was SO bad, there was just no way on earth for the MSM talking heads to spin or deny it. He failed THAT badly.

This is the new narrative, and the momentum is now all Romney's. Obama was already going to lose this election, but tonight confirmed it for 60,000,000 voting viewers. Enthusiasm on the left was already near the floor, but it's in the basement after tonight.

Time for Mooch and Obie to start picking out curtains for that $35 million dollar mansion in Hawaii.

Lol. Al Sharpton says Obama was rope-a doping letting Romney state a lot of facts that will be proven wrong over the next several days.

Lol, but Reverend Al might just win the award for the most creative (though preposterous) spin in the face of a disastrous night.
