O’s are losing, but it’s moot if the Yankees win, they win the East and the O’s will face them as the #4 seed in the ALDS.....Texas won’t beat them.

Charts debate reaction on Twitter.

“The USC tool measures not only volume — how many Tweets mention each candidate — but sentiment — whether they are positive or negative Tweets. Capturing and analyzing them correctly is still an ongoing experiment, Taplin admits.”

Might be good for a giggle.

Tonight I’m gonna follow the advice of Levin: watch the debate and turn it off immediately afterward, instead of making myself crazy with the post-show spin.

Bet you watch the post-debate commentary!

It's like trying not to rub your tongue against a chipped tooth.

I don’t know whether or not I’ll even watch it. We have the liberal, versus the lesser liberal. One candidate on the stage has successfully banned firearms while in office, while the other would certainly like to! .....

This would be the first one I’ve missed since I was a kid, when Clinton-Dole were “debating”.

I’ll most likely show up on election day to vote AGAINST 0bama, but other than that, I couldn’t be much less interested in this dog show of a presidential race. So PATHETIC of a job the republicans have done in choosing a candidate. Pathetic pathetic pathetic.....

I’m watching a colorized horror movie from 1932 before the actual debate comes on.

I guess that’s better than watching the horror of the MSM fawning over Obozo.

A Lionel Atwill marathon? Seriously?

Well, in truth, that actually does sound more appealing than the debate. Fictional entries in the horror genre tend to be more enjoyable than the the real thing, after all.

well, if they are looking for positive or negative responses we would have to work pretty hard to overcome the liberal f-bomb machine.

CSPAN promised a bit earlier to go silent and let this cameras just show inside the hall at the half hour (7:30 p.m. CDT).

I can't bear to watch. Obama's so slick - probably the worst POTUS in history and one of the slickest campaigners.

I hope Romney doesn't come off like a dolt.

When do the preliminary festivities finish and the match begin?

My stomach is turning too, I hate feeling like this. Romney needs to come out and have the best debate performance ever! Beating Obama in a debate should be pretty damn simple, I could do it easily without any debate prep, if Romney feels like the fix is in he should just go after Obama and forget the damn moderator. We all know this media is in the tank for the Marxist

If he would cook off like that math teacher that would be a hoot.

I just want to see where they are going to hide the tiny teleprompters, because if he hasn't had every question fed him in advance he won't be able to get through the evening without his "visual aids. "

“HAHA yeah that is what I would say I wish Romney would say that but he won’t. He has to go after Obama hard, call him out for EXACTLY what he is”

Hi Sarah!
I hope when Romney shakes Obama’s hand at the beginning of the debate that he whispers in his big ear: “I know you had Donald Young murdered!” That should get Bozo’s attention!

FNC had a shot of the debate stage and it sure looked like a damn teleprompter was right in front of one of of the podiums. Guess they don’t even feel necessary to hide openly cheating, all of us know it, 37% approve. The question is how many “undecided indies” give a damn.
