Romney didnt even go with fast and furious, or the ndaa. He's still got some serious potential ammo if he wants to use it.

We still get to hear Obama explain his foreign policy, such winners as bowing to Saudi princes, secretly arming Mexican drug cartels, covering up Al Qaida attacks in Libya, aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhoods takeover of the middle east and telling Israel to just go away.  I could go on but I am depressing myself.  :cry:

There is no way I can see anyone thinking that Obama won this debate.

Even Al Gore admits Obama was terrible.  However, he blamed it on the ALTITUDE!

"Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today — just a few hours before the debate started," Gore said on his network, Current. "Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust, I don't know..."

Yeah that kinda bugged me in fact.  Romney touts himself as a defender of freedom, liberty, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution yet he did not address a single thing that is a very important issue to me...

Continuation of the Patriot Act
HR347
NDAA
Surveillance Drones
etc...etc...etc.

What bugs me the most is Romney appears to agree with these things...and these are deal breakers to me.  These things ARE NOT in compliance with Liberty or Freedom or the Bill of Rights or the Constitution.  Sure, he addressed Obamacare but considering he has already said he would overhaul it or replace it with something similar, that doesn't work for me.  DO NOT TELL ME WHAT I HAVE TO BUY WITH MY MONEY!

I didn't watch it, I chose instead to spend a lovely evening at a country club with friends enjoying a delicious dinner, a gorgeous view and a spectacular sunset.

However, I do think through social media I learned something about the debate that was shocking, absolutely shocking! The people who supported Obama before the debates still support him and think he won! The people who supported Romney before the debates still support him and think he won! GASP!

And those who were undecided or don't care, still haven't decided and/or still don't care.

Pffft...
I'm sure they still support him...but ask Chris Matthews if he got that same 'thrill' running up his leg!

Romney was very well rehearsed and his primary focus was and is getting elected.
Obama is in that position already and is focused on the country and thinking about other things..threats to country behind scenes and maybe even including some things more personal such as his anniversary.  

Remember all the campaign strategies telling Obama he'd lose debate if he showed emotion or any anger toward Romney.

Instead of lashing out and trying to interupt I think he looked down at those times so not to be impulsive and utterly rude.

This was a stretagy mistake when body language was apparently one of the biggest  topics of the debate since I see RNC is emailing me photos  side by side of Obama looking down like a whipped dog next to Romney.

Might be just me, but I thought I saw a Romney's big tight smile while watching Obama speak turn into a downward scowl of like an indigestion attack and maybe even fear.  Along the lines of a beauty contestant whose vaseline runs out and becomes very nervous because the fake smile won't stay in place LOL

I tend to think its part of the political strategy to hit in a later debate so the other guy is less prepared.
Obama will come out better in a later debate when his passion sets in, he's more of a natural then Romney ever was on his campaigns.

It kind of irritated me that CNN's after debate poll results included more Republicans in the samplings although they did admit to it being that way. I liked the reality check segment they aired after although I didn't agree with all the  presentation of some of the facts. You still can make numbers work both ways by not looking at all the variables involved. Fox naturally focused on body language and mostly RNC  people to interview.  I liked C span because they seem to TRY to get the most balanced views and even include third parties to air their views.

Just remember media is media and campaigns are campaigns. Look at the issues and the personal values of the person vying for the office before voting on you and your country's destiny.

Is there a possibility that Obama lost the debate because he was in a bad mood over missing his 20th wedding anniversary?

Hell/woman/scorned, that sort of thing?  Michelle's probably hoping he'll lose now, just to teach him.

Never mind, he's always got Romney waiting in the wings though...

Until last night I thought Romney was a wuss. I watched all the republican debates and Romney never really sold it to me. I never saw anything exciting. Last night though, he came out proved me wrong. He beat Obama senseless. I didn't expect so much. I also didn't really expect Obama to look like such an ameteur. He seemed helpless and only had 'fair share' talking points to utter. I expected a good fight but it looked more like when Mike Tyson had his first fight after prison with that no name white guy. It wasn't even a match. In Romney I think I seen what makes him who he is. A success. Quick, smart and prepared, controlling and commanding. It really was his stage. I don't think I could stare a president in his eyes and excoriate him like Mitt did. Pretty bold but he did what he had to do. Mr. O on the other hand, he just didn't have it. He shyed away from eye contact. He looked several times like he was just kicked in the balls. I didn't see this great arrogance no matter what the pundits say. If anything, he seemed a bit humbled by Mitts lecturing and far too polite. I thought this guy was supposed to be the man. Apparently though he is just a man. He didn't show the confidence of a commander in chief. You all know I want him out but I'll admit I was a little bit embarrassed for him. Just a little.
Btw, I hated that moderator. In fact I can't stand anyone in that position. They always annoy me. The constant interruptions for time and cutting the guys off. I understand they have a job to do but when you're interviewing for the most important job in the world you just might need more than a few minutes to tell the country what you're all about.

Never read more BS in one post in my life.  :no:   Nothing but sanctimony, hubris, seething anger and wretched humiliation.  Reality just hit the democrats and it sucks but at least have the guts to admit the truth will ya.

BTW, Democrats were oversampled by 4% on CNN's poll, not republicans, so no need to be irritated!  :tsu:  Regardless, even if they had oversampled republicans it wouldn't answer for a 67% to 25% loss unless it was a really HUGE oversample, like 80% republicans.  Why would CNN oversample republicans anyways when they have been covering Barry's butt for 5 years now?  :whistle:   Get a grip son, there are more debates to come.

Sampling is right under the humiliating graph.
