I’m thoroughly enjoying Zero the empty suit get his ass handed to him in public debate. He’s been cloaked and coddled by the propaganda ministry and his handlers. This ain’t Letterman is it you muzzie allegianced sodomite undocumented cur! The puppet is off the strings! ha ha

notice the tightening muscles in Obama’s face as he listens to Romney . Notice how Romney facial muscles look relaxed , not tensing , no grinding teeth causing the muscles to ripples and knot up

Same here. I’d watch the debate but listening to Obama is like fingernails on a chalkboard. Besides the fact that he lies with every word he speaks including the “and’s” and the “the’s”

Romney is absolutely socking it to Obama. Obama looks weak. He’s scowling, hanging his head down (while Romney is speaking) and doing a lot of uh-ing and stammering. When Romney speaks, he comes across as competent and confident.


Agree. He even got Obama to agree with him on a point.

Hussein should have studied a little harder, he looks like he has no idea how to answer these questions.

There was a story out on Monday this week (I think) about Obama skipping out on his debate prep/practice sessions. Typical arrogance on his part. Didn't think he needed prep.

Ha!

Buck Ofama!

Why the hell is Jim Leherhehehhreher literally leading Obama answer by answer, point by point, topic by topic.

What’s the deal with that? Mitt Romney should call him out...

“Jim, let the president answer how he wants, please stop leading the witness while he’s on the stand”.

Every single time Romney recites all of Obama’s failure and the stats about the horrific economic conditions under his watch, Obama slightly nods his head “Yes.” What a WEAK signal to project.

Obama’s answers are as if he is running against President Romney.

Romney keeps reminding him that HE, Obama, has been President for 4 years.
