Mitts has a stripe down the front.

I don't know how much truth there is to this but - my brother is a member of the Carpenters Union and he once told me to pay close attention to the difference in the podiums during presidential debates (I think it was during Bush v Gore but can't be certain). The carpenters always construct the Republicans with an inferior piece of wood.

Good grief, I'm almost embarrassed for mr. obama - he looks like he hasn't slept in a week. This stumbling and rambling is tough to follow.

On the other hand, you can tell Romney has been looking forward to this for a long time! He is on fire

Obama is sending out Subliminal messages of subliminal manipulation to women voters,,,, nothing else, nothing else Obama says makes any sense.

Subliminal messaging like :

1#. Education .... liberal women see it as, " Yeah, our children need more education.
2#. $ 5 Trillion tax cuts .... liberal women see it as " ohh poor children, bad bad Mitt Romney is going to cut our kids school lunches.
3#. Military needs to be cut .... Liberal women see it as " yeah, those men toys, those war mongering men don't need those toys that can destroy this world ".
4#. Well to do .... Liberal women see it as " those rich people need to be taxed even more ".
5#. American needs to be energy independent , Liberal women see it as " yeahhh yeahhh yeahhh, he's going to spend more on clean energy.
